emanations shmemanations

For anyone scratching their heads about "emanations and penumbras" ---do a google search on the phrase...originally used when the Supreme Courts were able to discern hidden amongst the sentences a brand new--completely previously unrecognized right to terminate abortion in the first 2 tri-mesters. I think it may have been James Madison who authored the "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (and the right to terminate pregnancies at any point in the first 28 weeks) clause. It was written in really fine print, which explains why no one saw it for the first 175 years.....

(A penumbra the edge of the shadow cast by an interstellar body---it literally means "dim light" which is appropriate considering the context it is normally used in today)
