So I guess yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Have you ever actually read the decision? If you do and look really carefully, you’ll see a brief cameo by the Constitution.
I mean, you could love abortion — I mean just absolutely adore abortion and want as many as possible — and still should easily see that the Roe v. Wade decision is idiotic and has nothing to do with the Constitution. It’s as blatant judicial activism as is possible. Like the whole trimesters part — where are trimesters in the Constitution? I thought the point of the Supreme Court was to answer whether current laws are constitutional or not, not make up your own laws based on whatever the crap science of the day is. Of course, I’m not a constitutional scholar — I’m just a guy with basic reading comprehension… and thus much more qualified than most of the Supreme Court Justices from the past hundred years.
But like I said, they weren’t even pretending to do a constitutional decision, the Supreme Court instead had this fantasy idea in their head they could use their power to settle a contentious issue. Good going, guys. That really worked out.
I think the main flaw in their plan and why abortion continues to be contentious is that it involves killing babies. And there is just not a scenario where suddenly everyone deadens their morality and is okay with that. I mean, they can shout “It’s just a clump of cells!” or “It’s a woman’s choice!” and they’ll successfully give some people a reason to close their eyes to what’s happening, but the horrific reality of what abortion is — where we turn on our greatest gift, our children, and kill them — is always going to overpower whatever nonsense one tells him or herself. There is no happy future where every is okay with abortion. Because at their hearts, no one really is.
