Abortion: The Forever Contentious Issue

Posted on January 23, 2013 11:00 am

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.

    Please call it what it is. Abortion is Child Sacrifice!

    Ritualistic Human Sacrifice is one of the oldest religious practices known to man. Almost all of the Ancient Pagans sacrificed babies to the so-called God’s for better weather, good crops and even FREEDOM (from having to raise a child).

    The Romans would just put unwanted babies outside and let wild dogs eat them. The Ancient Ammonites ritually murdered their own babies
    and then placed the dead child in a sacrificial altar of fire while they prayed to Obama….. oooops I meant Moloch.

    The Democrats we see today are now different than the Ancient Canaanites, Ammonites and Moabites who worshiped (Obama) Moloch and Baal except that we have modern conveniences. They both killed millions of innocent babies for the exact same reasons.

    To Liberals, Roe was a hero, a symbol of all that was good, and a voice that needed to be heard…right up until Norma L. McCorvey became a Christian and discovered what a mess she had caused and how millions of children were being murdered as a result of her case. At that point she went public against abortion, and the same Liberals said she was a fool that should be ignored.

    Whether I own guns or not is a matter of privacy. It’s just a clump of bullets. I support the right to choose. Keep your laws out of my pants! (cause that’s where my concealed carry holster is)

  4. Charlotte says:

    Libs always act like every pregnancy is some sort of act where the woman had no control at all, and wakes up with a baby in the womb. Therefore, we must make it easier to murder the baby in the womb.

    And we, the taxpayers get to pay for the murder of these children. WOW. How proud of ourselves we should be. May bart stupid stupak the hypocritical yellow bellied snake burn in Hades for putting that on our plate while lying with his pie hole every time he opened it. Not ever going to forget YOUR name, stupak (just another name for stupid)

    This will always be contentious. People who advocate for the murder of babies in the womb are beyond anything rational. The people out there who advocate for the innocent will never give up.

    Let us not forget that she also admitted she had lied about being raped. Lawyers have a saying, “Hard facts make bad laws,” and while most Americans favor a rape exception to anti-abortion laws, a human life should not depend on the lies a desperately selfish woman is willing to tell. Make that exception, and cases of “rape” will go up by millions – by exactly the number of women who want otherwise prohibited abortions, in fact. Already, the “necessary for the health or safety of the mother” exception to otherwise forbidden late-term abortions is abused by women who claim they are suicidal at the thought of having to go through with the pregnancy and give birth. Well, mental health is health, isn’t it? And you can’t get a greater threat to life and health than suicide, right? Bingo, we have an abortion made necessary to save the life of the mother . . .

    When I was young abortion was a crime and one of the worst of crimes. Now that I am older, abortion is not consider a crime at all, in fact some people glamourize it. I guess the whole idea was just to get people use it. And always telling us: it not your body to dictate what another woman does. I had one so called friend tell me she was more of a woman that I was because she had an abortion and I never did. I think she was just trying to justify it in her mind. Maybe in severe cases I would allow it. But it is ending a life. You see a bunch of cells is what we look like at a couple weeks. Same thing you don’t look the same at 1 or 17, or 35 as you do when you 80. In any case, I sure think it has contribute to the lessening and disregard of human life.

    Frank, I’ve said basically what you’ve said to several liberal sisters. They got very silent and sad because THEY KNOW.

  8. Carpenter says:

    also during Moloch Hussien Obama’s 2nd term as a Presidential Imposter we the American people (thanks to Liberalism) will overtake Joseph Stalin as the biggest murder in history.

    So I think we should have an official Biggest Murderer Countdown website that counts the deaths as they happen (over 3,333 per day), a Biggest Murderer in History Countdown clock that approximates our beating Stalin, and finally a Worldwide Celebration as Obama becomes the leader of the Biggest Murderers in the world.

    Americans all over this once great land should then go outside and SHOUT “WERE NUMBER ONE! WERE NUMBER ONE! WERE NUMBER ONE!” as we overtake Stalin’s record of total deaths. If we are to become the biggest murderers in the history of the world we should be proud of our accomplishment.

    abortion is always homicide. Some homicides are justified, but most are not.

    Abortion = Murder. That is all…..

  11. Jeff Gauch says:

    First off, read the Ninth Amendment. The Bill of Rights was never meant to be an exhaustive list. Saying something isn’t a right because it isn’t mentioned in the Constitution is fallacious logic. That doesn’t automatically mean abortion is a right, just that we have to do some higher level thinking.

    The fundamental issue is when do rights begin. When a fetus gains rights its right to life trumps a woman’s right to undergo medical procedures. The pro-life folks say that life begins at conception. That’s irrational. A blastocyst has no more rights than an appendix, I don’t see too many signs saying appendectomies are murder. The pro-choice people say that life begins at birth. Also absurd. There’s nothing magical about being expelled from the uterus that confirms rights on an entity. So the correct answer lies somewhere in between. And that’s why the Roe decision is a mess. The Law is binary; acts are either legal or illegal; defendants are either guilty or innocent. Biology is continuous; there’s no difference between a 17 year old and an 18 year old, but one can be drafted; there’s not much difference between an 18 year old and a 21 year old, but the former isn’t trusted with beer. The mess you see is the result of a really crappy analog to digital conversion.

    “There is no happy future where every is okay with abortion. Because at their hearts, no one really is.”

    I am. Of course, I’m also OK with lighting Democrats on fire, so you might not want to use me as a moral compass.

  12. CTCompromise says:

    It’s just another case of the liberal’s assuagement of guilt to people who were just too damn lazy to take responsibilty for their actions – and the consequences of those actions. There are several means of preventing an unwanted pregnancy, and they have been available to just about every woman in this country for several years. When you play “Russian Roulette” and lose, you should expect that there’s going to be a really BIG consequence….. If it means that they have to go through “back door abortions” when they lose the gamble..Well, they will probably think twice about the risk before they ever play.

  13. CTCompromise says:

    @11. Jeff Gauch:

    I’m even less of a constitutional scholar than Frank J….But it seems to me that the examples you used: who gets drafted, who gets to drink beer, refers to laws which were passed by Congress; as laws are supposed to be. Abortion is a law which was made by the Supreme Court; which was not granted the right to make laws, only the right to review the existing laws on Constitutional merit. The 3 branches of our governent were created with seperate, but equal powers intentionally. If any branch steps outside the power granted to it, it undermines the “checks and balances” which were so brilliantly put into place when our government was formed..

  14. Oppo says:

    @13. CTCompromise:
    And, as Frank J. said, if you actually try to read the Roe v. Wade decision, you come to the realization that the Supreme Court was just trying to create a right, and a law, out of thin air.

    They just say that something (which is not written in the document) emanates from a ‘penumbra’ of the the other rights in the document. (Maybe from the Commerce Clause? Who knows? Certainly not from the Exclusionary Clause.)

    Nice try, Supreme Court, but no cigar.

    If you wanted to make law, you should have run for legislative office (as CTCompromise says). I could add, off-topic, the same applies to Roberts saying that fining non-activity is unconstitutional, yet taxing the same non-activity is. And this is, he says, according to a Constitution that spells out in black and white exactly what specific things may be taxed. “Non-activity” is not on the list. I checked.

    The problem with the “when does life begin?” Question is that everyone I know with a life it as a result of their mother being pregnant. Empirically speaking, pregnancy is the leading cause of life.
