‘”but the same rights apply to the unborn”
Not under the current interpretation of the Constitution.’
That’s not entirely true. It is the 1973 interpretation, not necessarily the current one (there simply is not more current interpretation of the SCOTUS).
And as with slavery, prohibition, etc. interpretations do change.
‘Again, aside from drama, the number of women exercising their *current* rights cannot be used as a legal justification to remove them.’
Except for the oft ignored fact that the rights of the unborn are *currently* being violated.
This country is not above civil rights violations. We have been guilty of them before abortion.
As we are guilty of them now.
there is no such thing as the right to live inside the body of another. period.
There is no such thing as the right to intentionally kill an innocent human being either.
If you don’t want to keep the life growing inside you, you don’t have to. But that life, does have the right to live.
As much as people try to claim, it is not your body. An unborn growing inside you has DNA distinctly different from your own.
Much like when your natural hair and eye color were determined the moment you were conceived, you also had the right to live.
No one deprived you of it.
Even if a fetus can be said to have a right to life, this does not include the right to use the body of another human being. For example, the state cannot force people to donate organs or blood, even to save someone’s life. We are not obligated by law to risk our lives jumping into a river to save a drowning victim, noble as that might be. Therefore, even if a fetus has a right to life, a pregnant woman is not required to save it by loaning out her body for nine months against her will
No, you are not obligated to donate organs or jump into a river.
And no one is asking you to remove organs from your body and deprive you the use of them.
Also, you aren’t permitted to remove organs from other people without their consent or hold their heads under water and kill them either.
What is the greater infraction? A few months pregnancy or an unjust sentence of death?
Few months, several decades.
You are comparing a few months of pregnancy with the entirety of someone’s life.
“What is the greater infraction? A few months pregnancy or an unjust sentence of death?”
The Constitution does not allow *you* to decide what the “greater infraction” is for someone else.
The Thirteenth Amendment *specifically* forbids involuntary servitude from being carried out in the United States, *and* allows Congress to pass laws to guarantee that it is not allowed.
I don’t see how you can consider forcing women to birth children against their will as anything other than involuntary.
“That’s not entirely true. It is the 1973 interpretation, not necessarily the current one”
Justice Kennedy, “In 1992, he joined Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s controlling plurality opinion in the case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), which re-affirmed in principle (though not in many details) the Roe v. Wade decision recognizing the right to abortion under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
Not to necessarily disagreeing with you, but just pointing it out.
Anybody with a brain can see that this piece of garbage has no idea what he is saying. He has been successful in convincing the moronic population that he means well. What a piece of garbage.
And your point is?
Because he doesn’t do things the way ya’ll would?
How about you wake up and see the results of doing things “you’re way”.
Maybe then you might understand why we are doing things *our* way for a change.
There’s not a damn thing happening right now that hasn’t been happening for the past twenty years.
‘destruction of America’. That’s cute. Why is it that every time we have a President (Clinton, Carter, even going back to Kennedy) who tries to change things (such as health care, energy independence, etc.) people like you jump immediately convince yourself they’re the devil incarnate?
Doesn’t your thinking seem a little backwards?
None of us know how much pain the human fetus feels while being aborted…because none of us (including Obama) were killed in their mother’s womb. If you are “pro-choice”, please watch a sonogram of an actual abortion. (They are rare to view. But there is one, from the 1980s, on “YouTube”: Silent scream part 3.) The fetus shows she is sensitive to physical touch. She tries to avoid the abortionist who is killing her. Does she feel pain while being aborted? Judge for yourself.
Obama just said that he doesn’t believe that an end of life decision should be made by a doctor.
So… he wants it made by a panel of government bureaucrats?
Are there any mindless Obama supporters out there that still can’t read between the lines with this guy? If you can’t please: read a history book.
If it has a face don’t kill it.
@ewffaces When I walked into a government building recently I saw his picture where the Comander in Chief’s picture should be and I was grieved to his face there. How did this baby killing, homosexual marriage approving man become our President??
OBAMA IS A WORTHLESS NIGGER AND HE NEEDS TO DIE! I hope someone takes him out soon. He only won because he is a nigger. Another mistake we will not EVER make again. Change my ass. There are 2 types of change, better and worse. As far as I am concerned Obama is just another nigger out there begging for change.
Open your eyes…When you have a BABY growing in you, it’s not only your body anymore! It’s TWO. And I really feel for the women who are pregnant because of rape, well the rapist should be executed not a baby! But of course those Liberals “Babies should be killed, and rapists should have short prison sentences” It’s all backwards.
@shalonwee, Bah you just learn to make much bigger and much more complex mistakes
@URaLIARdude, because the hillbilly retards like you are dying
abortion was not created for women to have their say so in their rights as a woman, its for population control look it up. the population control of african americans because the Eugenics! Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood main agenda was to get rid of Black reproduction rights! look it up! Barac needs to do his history on abortion. how dare he support the Genocide of his own people!?
You in your views represent the lowest form of human existance. I only wish you were man enough to say those things out of the privacy of your keyboard. However you are worthless
You judgemental bastard. I think its time for people like you to take your place and shut up!
