Roe V. Wade and the Right to Rule Ourselves

Sunday, January 22, AD 2017

 

On January 22, 1973 the United States Supreme Court in the case of Roe v. Wade and in the companion case of Doe v. Bolton made up a Constitutional right to abortion out of thin air.  There was nothing in the Constitution forbidding the states from regulating abortion, and the states had so regulated, and often criminalized, abortion since the inception of the Republic.  Roe and Doe were terrible crimes against the unborn, but they were also blows against the most precious civil liberty Americans possess:  the right to rule ourselves.

If Roe were overturned, the abortion regime of abortion on demand would be limited to a handful of states.  Some states would ban abortion outright in almost all cases.  Most would bring abortion under ever growing restrictions that would shrink the number of abortions performed.  One of the prime defenses of abortion currently, that is a Constitutional right, would be no more.  Pro-lifers would be free to focus on the ugly reality of abortion without fear that Federal courts by judicial fiat would upend hard won pro-life legislation at the state level.

How do we get there? Two main paths that I can see.

  • Agreed.

    The forces opposed to Life have made their presence known;https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/01/21/politics/madonna-speech-march/index.html

    This is invoking treason.
    A public figure talking like this is a threat and should be dealt with accordingly.

    Today all of my prayers are for the Right To Life March. God protect them from the Evil that has shown up. The Evil that is restless because they sense their demise.

    God help us in this battle for Life.

  • Remember what it took to end slavery and think not that sadly human error won’t require the same to end abortion today. I pray I am wrong. But I fear that the left will never surrender abortion till it is utterly defeated. The recent march by feminist lesbian and abortionist murderous perverts on DC prove that.

  • Court-stripping does not need to be tested. The authority to determine jurisdictions in right there. In truth, judicial misfeasance in this matter and in so many others that anything short of putting out contracts is legitimate means in a war on the courts.

  • The woman’s march was a celebration of Roe vs. Wade, the right of women to kill their own children.

    “Our Lady of Fatima, help us in the year 2017, intercede for us please. Our world has gone insane.
