Recently I have been fascinated with researching various Supreme Court cases, their effects, etc. and in a lot of the opinions and rulings I've been finding a lot of verdicts supported by the 14th Amendment and its clauses, such as the due process clause, equal protection and so on. I'm not exactly an expert on government but I feel a lot of power and leeway is being milked out of the amendment that the drafters may not have intended. To give a specific example, Roe vs. Wade; in the majority opinion there was made references to the 14th to give support to the decision, and I like others think that it was misinterpretation and that the rights addressed came out of thin air. This is just one example I can think of. So do you think the 14th has been overinterpreted so to speak; that the court has stretched it to cover and support too much? In effect has it become a get out of jail free card?
