Will Alabama force a SCOTUS decision on abortion, viability and personhood?
WASHINGTON: Alabama has passed a law that makes abortion a felony, providing for virtually no exceptions in its practice. Leading to the question, so what?
Alabama’s new law on abortion has brought forth the worn-out cries of injustice (to women of course). Similar, and as vocal, are cries of a violation of some perceived constitutional right to privacy or control over their bodies.
Moreover, of course, the usual feminine blather supported by psychologically gelded males (mostly Democrats) about “gender” equality.
They mean sex equality. However, most probably were taught in government (public) schools, not realizing that there is a difference, much less what it is.
CNN’s Chris Cillizza offers an interesting view of the debate, stating the liberal goal is the overthrowing of Roe vs. Wade:
The political consensus is that the law is designed to be drastic in its repeal of Roe vs. Wade.
Roe vs. Wade is the SCOTUS decision in 1973. Thus confirming not that our Creator endows us with certain inalienable rights, but that SCOTUS endows us with some rights. Either way, Alabama is leading an in artful, cumbersome effort to lead the debate.
The comprehensive coverage of the Alabama law almost certainly begs for a SCOTUS ruling. The ruling is not to overturn Roe vs. Wade, that is established. But to force SCOTUS to determine the age of viability – 6 weeks, 12 weeks or 20 weeks. To determine the age a fetus earns personhood.
“Under our laws, currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Clinton responded. “Now that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can, in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support.” says Hillary Clinton.
Abortion debate to prove the US has no co-equal branches of Government
This SCOTUS business is the obvious (it should be) attestation to the notion that the so-called United States really has no system of checks and balances overseen by three co-equal branches of government. The “so-called” appellation means that we live under a single United State ruled by a National government. This government lies in Washington, wherefrom all wisdom flows.
After all, if the SCOTUS says murder is a private act, what can Congress or the president (any) do?
The three groups are one as a national government.
When nullification (the states checked) and secession (the states checked) were disallowed at gunpoint a century and a half ago their sovereignty in the republic federation, the “three co-equal branches” became a joke.
Again, there is a single national government in Washington, and they will tell Alabama what their rights are. God may have endowed them, but Washington has seized them. The government in Washington believes it is God.
The so-called media believes they are angels doing God’s work. However, then most of their edification and education is from the public-school system as well.
On Tucker Carlson Tonight, veteran anchor Bret Hume offers his opinion on the abortion debate. Hume appears at approximately 10 minutes into the show. Hume says he thinks the Alabama law is too far-reaching for an appellate court to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
Any subsequent appeal to SCOTUS will be a denial to hear the case. The result will be that perhaps another law—he suggested Missouri, that is less comprehensive might get to SCOTUS.
Nice try Alabama.
However, the ghost of the psychotic Sherman lives and still carries his torch of death. No matter what the SCOTUS ultimately rules, there will always be the ballot box in this single (one-time republic) United State democracy.
If the mob gets enough votes, there will always be men who will serve the government before they serve God.
The Republicans are hardly saints, though there are a few who try. However, the Democrats have a couple of dozen candidates running for president and not one of them has denounced taking a day-old child and (after due comfort) smacking it in the head with a hammer.
With the so-called checks and balances ultimately, the SCOTUS will say: “So what?”
Welcome to hell, U.S.A.
