Let's meet Daniel Conkle.

Daniel Conkle is the Robert H. McKinney Professor of Law Emeritus at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where he specializes in constitutional law and religious liberty.

He's also a 'contributor' to the Federalist Society.

So, he's a wingnut lawsplainer. And he has a plan!

A Grand Compromise on Abortion
A national abortion compromise, to be effective, would require bold congressional action. It would recognize a right to abortion, nationwide, but it also would impose new and significant restrictions on this right, also applicable in every state.


To be potentially viable [hah, I see what you did there. very clever, Daniel], a national compromise would include four elements. First, it would permit abortion during a specified period of gestation, without restriction, during the few first months of pregnancy. Second, it would prohibit abortion later in pregnancy. Third, even after this point in pregnancy, there would be exceptions to the abortion prohibition. And fourth, the congressional compromise would be national in scope, with federal law controlling the issue of abortion and preempting state law to the contrary.

This is, of course, Roe v Wade.

    Well, I believe the Judge’s Miranda Rights have been sharply curtailed, which he should keep in mind when he arrested in a couple dozen states for counseling that pro-abortion position.

    “would require bold congressional action”

    And can anyone, with a straight face, argue that the Congress (the current one, or one likely to be elected any time soon) could take ANY action on the subject?
