In this article, Charles Rice examines the effort to and a Constitutional solution to the problem of abortion. Moving beyond the call for mere ad hoc amendment, he calls into question the very adequacy of the Constitution as the framework for a Christian order. In so doing, the author suggests that the fatal flaw of the Constitution is its failure to recognize some arbiter of the natural law. Linking this to the abortion issue, Rice argues convincingly that until this failure is corrected there can be no public solution to America’s ultimate moral dilemma.
