2. We need one as the decision to overturn included the phase that any medical procedures not

explicitly mentioned in the Constitution are not constitutional. IMHO they (the Justices) made a serious mistake.

So, basically all medical procedures etc. not outlined in the Constitution are unconstitutional?

This certainly sounds like what they are saying. The framers of the Constitution didn't have any idea or the scope of what medicine can do today, certainly they wouldn't have made these procedures constitutionally illegal if saving someone's life involved brain surgery or the like. This reasoning is grossly wrong.

1 The court’s decision is both straightforward and incredibly sweeping.

The decision written by Justice Samuel Alito flatly declares that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start.” It rules that because a right to abortion is neither explicitly laid out in the Constitution nor “deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and traditions,” it deserves no protection as a fundamental right.
