“I can’t keep silent, in light of how my country has changed her face/Won’t quit trying to remind her in her ears, I’ll sing my cries/Until she opens her eyes.”
—Israeli writer Ehud Manor

The Last Word
“Roe held, and Casey reaffirmed, that in the first stages of pregnancy, the government could not make that choice for women. The government could not control a woman’s body or the course of a woman’s life: It could not determine what the woman’s future would be. Respecting a woman as an autonomous being, and granting her full equality, meant giving her substantial choice over this most personal and most consequential of all life decisions.”
—Dissenting Supreme Court justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan
