Overturning Roe vs. Wade, in effect for fifty years, exposed pregnant women to being bound and enslaved by State laws.
It exposes females, of any age, to a merciless and constant sexual harassment.
Question: How can you say that?
Answer: A majority of seated US Supreme Court Justices decided in 2022 that Abortions represented a “deeply moral issue”.
Roe vs. Wade was decided in 1973. It was a law of the land for fifty years in the USA. During its tenure, Ireland passed a Constitutional Amendment to legalize abortions.
In 1776, our Declaration of Independence separated Church from State. Eleven years later, our US Constitution was signed. These two documents also addressed “profound and deeply moral issues”.
Further, a majority of US Supreme Court Justices declared that their decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade did not take into consideration how the US States would react with legislation.
It is similar to saying that when our US Constitution was adopted that its signers did not consider what would happen to the Nation, after they signed that document. Instead these signers were deeply and profoundly focused only on the legality of their document.
As support, many anti-abortion groups will declare a sum of over 20 millions aborted fetuses, since Roe vs. Wade became law in 1973. They will claim that over 20 million aborted fetuses are sufficient grounds to bind and enslave a woman to her womb, to prevent abortions.
Question: Can you elaborate on our US Constitution
Answer: Its first part, their Articles, established a Federal Government. It can raise taxes. It can protect its citizens via war. These taxes can build an infrastructure for its citizens, such as national highways. It created three branches of government: (1) A Legislative branch, US Congress, (2) an Executive Office, led by a US President, and (3) a Judicial branch led by a US Supreme Court.
A second part is its Bill of Rights, Amendments 1 to 10. This came about three to four years later. Citizens needed independence and protection against overzealous groups of people in the police, military, government agencies. For instance it provided for freedom of religion, speech and press. And citizens had to give permission for their properties to be used to house soldiers in peacetime and war.
This Bill of Rights also refined aspects of the Federal and State Governments.
This specified that any rights not enumerated in this Constitution and Amendments did not indicate they needed to be excluded as a people’s right.
“The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people”
This further refined Amendment 9 and specified that a right could be retained by citizens if not prohibited by Federal or State laws.
“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”
But additional adjustments were passed. We have Amendments 11 through 27.
This limited how State legislation could control through its laws the lives of their citizens
“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”
Question: What did the US Supreme Court do with these sections of the US Constitution?
Answer: They decided that abortion was not a privilege reserved for women. They also decided that laws from State legislatures, to control a woman’s womb, once impregnated, were not excessive legal control.
Question: How could they reach that conclusion, giving the US Constitution.
Answer: The 9th Amendment does not exclude personal preferences. Supreme Court Justices can take a personal preference against Abortion. In their decision they did say “Abortion presents a profound moral question”
They could have easily said the opposite. That Roe v Wade was needed because it protected a profound moral question.
Question: What was this privacy to have an abortion in Roe vs. Wade.
Answer: Granting a woman a right to have an abortion, by making it a ‘private’ decision, a State or Federal agency could not require that she follow certain prescribed rules. For instance, that she first visit numerous agencies before she gets her abortion. These agencies could require appointments. Appointments can be cancelled. Appointments could require extensive travel and extensive documents. By making it private, these rules were all eliminated.
Question: What is this section of the 14th Amendment that protects citizens against excessive legislation,
Answer: This section is not often discussed by US Politicians.
But it is used as a banner by anti-government extremist groups. These groups use Amendment 14 as a background to rail against implied conspiracies.
The US Justice Department can argue in courts, that laws, from US State legislatures, banning abortion is excessive control over a women’s womb.
