7. I think they can go another way besides the Casey dissent.
Life begins at conception. (Their argument, not mine.)

This would be much more radical and would create a 14th/5th Amendment prohibition on abortion ("deprived of life . . . without due process of law").

The problem is that this would create horrible problems in the law of inheritance, Social Security benefits, etc.
