Legality vs. Morality: Abortion and the Supreme Court

This is the scenery around our slow drive around two rights that are often viewed as polar opposites: the right to life and the right of privacy. This week, let’s try to dissect them: are they really opposing rights? are they really both fundamental rights? Indeed, what does fundamental mean in this context? Analyze them in the context of both legality and morality. Explain how the law can infringe on personal liberty, and whether the personal liberties of one can infringe upon the personal liberties of others. NOTE: Our goal is to seriously analyze these rights, not simply proclaim personal political opinions.
