ERA would provide a new basis in the Constitution for the right to abortion. Roe v. Wade is based on weak reasoning founded on an unwritten “right to privacy” assumption. As public sentiment grows in opposition to abortion, there is hope that the U.S. Supreme Court could reverse that dreadful decision. However, if the ERA passes, that hope would be destroyed because the ERA would insert a written and defined right based on sex discrimination into the Constitution.
