Paul Wright: End this American nightmare after 43 years

ABORTION--It's time to end this American nightmare. Congress can do this by simply limiting the appellate jurisdiction of the Federal courts (see the Exceptions Clause of Article III Section 2 of the Constitution). Congress has done this before and it can do it again. Its time to end the confusion, the misleading of the American people on this issue, 43 years is long enough.
