Roe v. Wade History

LA Times writer David Savage has a very interesting look at the development of the Roe v. Wade decision (link via Yahoo). Worth noting is that the author of the opinion, Justice Blackmun, and other justices apparently did not intend the decision to be as far reaching as it turned out to be. It's well worth a read. It's also a good reminder that court decisions can have implications far beyond what the judge (or a pundit) may expect at the time. (H/T: Volokh Conspiracy).
