Mark Tushnet, Revised Opinions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton (concurring), in What Roe v. Wade Should Have Said: The Nation's Top Legal Experts Rewrite America's Most Controversial Decision 86 (Jack M. Balkin ed., 2005).

Abstract: "In What Roe v. Wade Should Have Said, eleven distinguished constitutional scholars rewrite the opinions in this controversial case in light of thirty years' experience but making use only of sources available at the time of the original decision. Taking positions both for and against the constitutional right to abortion, the contributors offer novel and illuminating arguments that get to the heart of this case. In addition, Jack M. Balkin gives a detailed introduction to Roe v. Wade, chronicling the history of the Roe litigation, the constitutional and political clashes that followed, and the state of abortion rights in the United States today."--BOOK JACKET.
