17th century precepts in 2022
Gadzooks! Now a 17th-century English judge, Lord Matthew Hale, has popped up here.
Judge Hale ruled that a woman has no rights of her own — not even to her own body. When Justice Samuel Alito wrote the Supreme Court's leaked draft on abortion, he mentioned Hale eight times.
So, forget constitutional guarantees, forget women's health, and forget dire situations. In 2022 and beyond, just live (or die) by 17th-century precepts.
