Taking positions both for and against abortion, 11 distinguished constitutional scholars rewrite the Supreme Court's opinions in this landmark case in light of 30 years of experience, offering illuminating arguments that get to the heart of the case, but making use only of sources available at the time of the original decision.


Jack M. Balkin is Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School, and the founder and director of Yale's Information Society Project. He is the author of numerous books and the editor of What Brown v. Board of Education Should Have Said (NYU Press, 2002). He lives in New Haven, CT.


"Brings together some of America's brightest legal minds to make the best arguments available for and against the constitutional right to abortion. An exceptional volume and essential for anyone who wants to understand the constitutional debate about Roe." --Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union, and Professor of Law, New York Law School"The interest of the whole lies precisely in its depiction within a single volume of where the debate stands." --Federal Lawyer"Reading Jack Balkin's edited book, What Roe v. Wade Should Have Said, conjures up thoughts in the reader, like 'darn, I wish I had thought of that.'" --The Law and Politics Book Review"This array of intelligent and serious alternatives to the Court's stunningly inadequate opinion in Roe v. Wade --some reaching the same, some the opposite conclusion, some in between --is the most convincing argument against any litmus test on this subject either way for future Supreme Court Justices." --Charles Fried, Harvard Law School"Whatever beliefs you may hold concerning these issues, you will find those beliefs subjected to thoughtful--even passionate--challenge in at least one of these opinions." --Kenneth L. Karst, UCLA School of Law"What Roe v. Wade Should Have Said provides vigorous and diverse substitute opinions by leading scholars that broaden, deepen, and improve the current debates while sharpening what a supreme court can and cannot do on such a highly disputed matter." --Martha Minow, Harvard Law School"In an era in which it's entirely possible that someone else is actually going to get to reimagine what Roe v. Wade should have said, this book is an interesting fantasy excercise." --Bitch
