    What right is that?

    The child is in the legal custody of the parent. The parent decides whether the child is being propagandized. It's the parent's right that's being infringed.

    The only relevant fact is the invasion. No legal justification appears. The possility that one may appear -- Ukraine was secretly conquered by aliens and brainwashed into fascism -- means nothing.

    But they do. Justice Blackmun, the author of Roe v. Wade, was a man, and he said men do have a say. At some point, society's interests outweigh those of the mother.
