Plessy v Ferguson was overturned, so should Roe v. Wade
During oral arguments on December 1, 2021, in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization late-term abortion case, President Biden’s Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar opposed reversing the Supreme Court’s 1973 decisions legalizing abortion. Justice Samuel Alito asked if the 1896 Plessy v Ferguson decision upholding “separate but equal” treatment of blacks and whites was initially wrong in 1896 and should have been overruled.
Prelogar’s answer undid the logic of her opposition to overturning Roe:
Justice Alito: “… suppose Plessy … was re-argued in 1897, so nothing had changed. Would it not be sufficient to say that was an egregiously wrong decision on the day it was handed down and now it should be overruled?”
Solicitor General Prelogar: “It certainly was egregiously wrong on the day that it was handed down … what had become clear is … this idea that segregation didn’t create a badge of inferiority, had been entirely mistaken.”
Justice Alito: “… Had it come before the Court in 1897, should it have been overruled or not?”
General Prelogar: “I think it should have been overruled, but I think that the factual premise was wrong in the moment it was decided …”
General Prelogar’s answers justify reversing Roe. In the moment Roe was decided, Justice Blackmun was wrong in eliminating all laws in all 50 states protecting unborn children. Three major untruths undergird Blackmun’s egregious decision.
