Quote from: Tom62 on June 29, 2022, 08:53:23 PMThe Democrats had several times in modern history the majority in the House and Senate. Stupid question from a foreigner: Why didn't they use that opportunity to create a federal abortion law?
Quote from: Asmodean on June 29, 2022, 08:11:16 AMWhat is the practical difference between "recognising" a right and "creating" one? One day you may be legally prevented from exercising it, then the next day - not. Is it just a matter of background? I can see how "recognise" would imply that there was a process by which the right-to-be evolved, so to speak, while "create" implies something more inorganic and committee-like. Or is there a practical distinction?
