Nation IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C. : Roe vs. Wade Foe, Backer See Reversal

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Supreme Court is likely within the next two years to overturn its 18-year-old decision striking down state laws against abortion, a backer and a foe of legalized abortions said Sunday. Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union, and Robert H. Bork, former judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, spoke on ABC's "This Week With David Brinkley." "Unfortunately, I think Roe vs. Wade will, at least in practical effect, be overturned," Strossen said. Bork said that "aside from all that rhetoric, I think it is likely to be overturned."
