Supreme Court Won’t Hear Personhood Challenge to Roe v Wade

The United States Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge of legalized abortion based on so-called Personhood statutes. 

I expected this. The Court basically ruled by refusing to rule on the question of personhood in Roe when it said that it need not consider the personhood of the unborn child. If they opened this up now, it would place the Court in the position of having to rule one way or the other on the question of whether or not an unborn child is a person under the law.

They didn’t want to do that 40 years ago, and it appears they don’t want to do it now.

So far as I’m concerned, this underscores my belief that the pro life strategy of packing the Supreme Court has been a failure.
