I hate to point this out...
But for those on the left and the right who are complaining about the principle of stare decisis as regards Roe v. Wade, I would ask how well established the precedent of Plessy v. Ferguson was.
The doctrine of “separate but equal” in that case was upheld by the Supreme Court in a 7-1 majority, and it was not until 58 years later than the Supreme Court reversed itself with a unanimous 9-0 decision in Brown v. Board of Education.
Longevity does not guarantee a good decision. Neither does precedent. Democrats may be in for a harsh lesson or three.
Well duh. No offense to Drum, but I've been saying this since I understood what Roe was.
