Abortion ruling finally gives unborn chance for legal protection they deserve

Over my 20-year career as a radiologist evaluating patients of all ages for disease and abnormality, I have been consistently moved by my youngest patients — the pre-born little boy or girl fetuses floating in the silence of their mothers’ wombs. Their lively humanity moves me, but mostly it is their utter defenselessness. Over the course of my entire professional life, these youngest patients of mine, unlike any of my other charges, lacked the most basic protection of law. To me, their doctor, who marveled over them and delighted in their delicate beauty, this was a depressing fact. 

The overturning of Roe v. Wade has suddenly given my littlest patients a chance to acquire some measure of legal protection.   

Now, thanks to the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, the unborn are protected in some places. In states where the public deeply values the dignity of unborn children, the laws will be allowed to reflect that judgement. To varying degrees and at different stages of gestation, each state will democratically find the point at which to protect unborn patients like mine.
