Slip Opinion of an Important Decision Concerning Reproductive Rights Signed by Justice Blackmun Supreme Court, United States. [Blackmun, Harry (1908-1999)]. Thornburgh, Governor of Pennsylvania, et al. v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists et al. Slip Opinion. [Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1986]. iii, [1], 23, [1], 10, 4, 29, [1], 20 pp. Complete. Signature of Justice Blackmun to head of first page. Fine. $500. * Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists involved a challenge to Pennsylvania's Abortion Control Act of 1982, which aimed to limit abortion rights. Blackmun's majority opinion for the Court rejected this act and reaffirmed Roe. A U.S. Supreme Court opinion is disseminated through a four-step process. The first is a bench opinion, which is issued on the day the Court announces a decision. A slip opinion, which often incorporates revisions, is issued a few days afterwards. With the addition of an index and other features, such as a table, an opinion is issued later as a softcover Preliminary Print designated as a Part. Over time, it is joined with other parts to make up a preliminary softcover United States Reports volume. A few years later, the opinion, after a final round of editing and indexing, is printed in its final, official, form in the hardcover United States Reports.
