“It’s A Matter Of Life…”

In April 1972, with the Supreme Court decision in Sierra Club v Morton, Justice Douglas wrote in the dissenting view,
“… that in response to ecological concerns, environmental objects (such as a valley, an alpine meadow, a river, or a lake) should be granted legal personhood (the state of being a person) by the public.”
Corporate personhood is the legal notion that a corporation has at least some of the legal rights and responsibilities enjoyed by natural persons.
In 1973, Justice Douglas agreed with the Roe v Wade decision saying children are not persons.
Today in our country, corporations, trees, beaches, wetlands are rigorously protected. Unborn children, being declared by law not to be persons, are afforded no protection and can be exterminated without consequence of law.

We are told to “listen to science”, and we, incorrectly, hold our Supreme Court justices to be omnipotent. However, without an unwavering support for the sanctity of life, scientists and justices will choose the wrong path, and will lead us down the path of destruction.
