In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court said the Constitution gives the federal government the power to regulate abortion, even though the Constitution does not say it delegates that power to the federal government. The Tenth Amendment says the opposite. It says “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Abortion advocates say Roe v. Wade gives women the unrestricted right to kill a human baby in the womb at any time up to the instant of birth for any or no reason. Roe v. Wade says the opposite. It says government has the authority to restrict abortion. It’s a published Supreme Court case, and is available for everyone to read.
Abortion advocates say a fetus is not a human life until it leaves the womb alive. Why would a woman want or need a constitutional right to kill something that is not alive? If the baby in the womb is not a human life, what species of life is it?
Abortion advocates say “my body my choice”. They say the opposite, when it comes to coronavirus vaccine mandates, automobile seatbelt mandates, restrictions on cigarettes and alcohol and cocaine and fentanyl, restrictions on suicide, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s prohibition against a large cup of soda. They say nothing, when the baby in the womb says “my body my choice”.
Abortion advocates say their right to commit abortion is inviolate, because it is the law. They say the opposite, when it comes to violating immigration law with sanctuary cities, violating the Second Amendment right to bear arms, and violating the First Amendment right of free speech.
Abortion advocates say health insurance companies have to pay for abortions. Really? All insurance policies protect against involuntary unanticipated problems. Health insurance policies are limited to protecting against involuntary unanticipated health care problems. There is nothing involuntary or unanticipated about having unprotected sex, and then going to a doctor and telling the doctor to kill the resulting unborn baby.
If the Supreme Court were to say tomorrow that the Constitution does not give the federal government any power or authority to regulate or de-regulate abortion, abortion advocates would continue to say they have a constitutional right to abortion.
Abortion advocates do not base their advocacy on the law. They base their advocacy on this simple dogma: I want what I want.
Anti-abortion advocates base their advocacy on this simple dogma: Human life matters.
Let’s be honest about abortion.
