202. Roe v Wade and late term abortion
explicitly says that the government can restrict late term abortion. Furthermore, Roe v Wade says that government can do this because the government feels that the late term fetuses should have rights.

There is still a Roe V. Wade probl;em with the new law because there is no life or health of the pregnant woman exception. However, the basic idea of restricting late term abortions out of respect for fetal rights is very much a part of Roe v. Wade itself. Let me know if you need the pertinent language from the opinion.
