Roe v. 10th and 11th Amendments
The dissenting opinion pointed out that the 10th and 11th both disagreed with Blackmun's interpretation of the 14th:
- 10th, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
- 11th , “The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.”
Nowhere in the Constitution did it mention federal powers over abortions. Those that value rule of law over judicial activism, are disgusted by the Roe ruling. Blackmun had no authority to give the Supreme Court (and the Federal Government) authority over abortion.
