A  federal district court has dismissed a request by the former plaintiff known as "Jane Roe" to reconsider the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion 30 years ago.

Norma McCorvey, who joined the anti-abortion fight 10 years ago, filed the "motion for relief from judgment" Tuesday, asking the court to reopen Roe v. Wade and conduct a wide-ranging inquiry into scientific and anecdotal evidence she says shows abortion hurts women.

The court dismissed McCorvey's request late Thursday, saying it wasn't made within a "reasonable time" after the 1973 judgment

Interesting.

I guess they have to get a *new* case with the same issue for the court to review.

Posted it in the other thread already :)

Still, I can't say I'm suprised by the verdict

Same. Whether right or wrong, this is three decades later and they've got rules on how long after you can file this kind of things.
Rules for surviving an Autocracy:

Rule#1: Believe the Autocrat.
Rule#2: Do not be taken in by small signs of normality.
Rule#3: Institutions will not save you.
Rule#4: Be outraged.
Rule#5: Don't make compromises.
Rule#6: Remember the future.

I am actually glad that the courts have decided to keep out of this. The issue has been worked to the state level with states making the laws that fit closer to their citizens desires. The system is flawed but it is working well enough till something better is presented.
