I totally agree with you. I just don't see it being overturned. OK, there may be parts of it, like the late-term abortion, being made illegal (I can't say I disagree with that - if you're in the 3rd trimester before you make up your mind, adoption is a better option than abortion!), but overall the alternatives are too horrific. Even if 90% of it is scare tactics, the possibility of back-alley abortions or worse the clothes hanger do-it-yourself abortion, is not acceptable. Add to that molestation and rape cases and they just can't overturn it without the real mainstream of Americans being in a REAL outcry!
It's become a talking point issue for both sides of the political aisle, meant to appeal to the extremes of both sides (totally for or against), but it's become nothing more than a talking point.
