In this thoughtful (but over-parenthetical) article, John Mark Reynolds discusses something Huckabee said about the Constitution. In the course of it, he quotes Huckabee on the idea of reversing Rowe and returning the abortion issue to the states:
...if Roe v. Wade is overturned, we haven’t won the battle. All we’ve done is now we’ve created the logic of the Civil War, which says that the right to the human life is geographical, not moral. I think that’s very problematic. That’s why I think that people like Fred Thompson are dead wrong when he says just leave that up to the states. Well, that’s again the logic of the Civil War – that slavery could be okay in Georgia but not okay in Massachusetts. Obviously we’d today say, “Well, that’s nonsense. Slavery is wrong, period.” It can’t be right somewhere and wrong somewhere else. Same with abortion.Good point and well-put; and I hadn't thought of it that way.
No "but" follows.
