Charles M. Blow joined Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in invoking former Vice President John C. Calhoun in comparing the sentiment surrounding today’s debate over abortion to the slavery debate.

Liberal New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow claimed over the weekend that the U.S. was “edging closer” to another civil war.

In a Saturday op-ed, Blow argued that the ongoing debate over Texas’ recently passed abortion law, and the invoking of former Vice President John C. Calhoun by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, reminded him of the debate over states’ rights and slavery, both of which Calhoun was a proponent, in the decades leading up to the American Civil War.
