    Originalism v. a Living Constitution

    One of the biggest debates in law is whether we should view the U.S. Constitution, which is really the, American rule book, the contract we have with our government, as a living or dead document. Those who view it as a living document, note that the constitution has many vague terms and that those terms can adapt as society and technology change.

    Roe v. Wade: The Power of a Law Review

    There were plenty of articles leading up to Roe versus Wade proposing ways to make abortion a constitutional right. There was a law professor named Roy Lucas at the University of Alabama Law School. He published an article in the, uh, North Carolina Law Review that advocated and sought judicial intervention with respect to the abortion statutes. There were a group of legal scholars and a group of lawyers who were absolutely persuaded that the process of reaching a sufficient consensus that you could enact legislation was too slow. It was too important. We needed to move forward, and the best way to do that is through the courts. Roy…
