    the political problem is that the Roe court introduced the notion of viability, which placed a limit on personal autonomy re the issue and left the door open for treating the fetus as a separate person.  This is one of the flaws with Roe, but an understandable one given the historical context.  I am of the view that this is purely an issue of personal autonomy.  Once that becomes accepted, the reproductive rights battle should be won.
