“It’s A Matter Of Life…”
Written by “Anonymous One”
In Roe v Wade, the State of Texas argued “that the fetus is a ‘person’ within the language and meaning if the Fourteenth Amendment” to which Justice Blackmun responded, “if this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the (Fourteenth) Amendment. “
The Roe v Wade decision was made prior to ultrasounds reaching America. We now have scientific evidence that children in the womb fully meet the criteria of being persons such as Justice Blackmun sought as he made his decision. These preborn children: Suck their thumbs; Feel pain; Feel joy; Respond to light; Develop food preferences; Recognize their mother’s voice. Each a characteristic of human persons. It is time for our law to reflect modern science and that the law which has made legal the deaths of 73 million preborn babies be overturned.
What is the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution?
“The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1868, granted citizenship to all persons born or naturalized in the United States—including former slaves—and guaranteed all citizens “equal protection of the laws.”
So who is Justice Blackmun?
“Harry Andrew Blackmun was an American lawyer and jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1970 until 1994. Appointed by Republican President Richard Nixon, Blackmun ultimately became one of the most liberal justices on the Court.” (From Wikipedia..emphasis added by LFC)
We doubt if Justice Blackmun, even if he had the benefit of modern science, would have ruled any other way. In our opinion, for the leftists, science is only useful when it fits their narrative. Their is no way that Justices Ginsburg, Sotomayer, or Kagan , all hardcore leftists, would reverse Roe v Wade even with all of the modern knowledge revealed by modern science.
If we are to have any chance to reverse Roe v Wade, replacing Justice Ginsburg with a right of center jurist is crucial, and another reason why electing President Trump is to a second term in 2020 is vitally important.
Eliminating federal funding for Planned Parenthood is another important step in ending the morally bankrupt practice of abortion, and the heinous act of selling body parts.)
