Abortion Is a Constitutional Right--Right?
By John W. Lillpop
Those who question the existence of rampant liberal hypocrisy need only consider two major issues of the day to be disabused of all such doubt.
Consider please: Liberals oppose the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, and do so allegedly out of concern for human life and safety. However, those same liberals are bitter proponents of abortion, which is all about terminating human life.
Consider further how the right to bear arms and abortion are reflected in law.
With respect to arms, the second Amendment to the US Constitution reads:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
By definition, gun control is an attempt by government to infringe on the right of the People to keep and bear arms. That makes gun control a violation of the Second Amendment, plain and simple.
Unfortunately, liberal politicians and bureaucrats have snubbed their arrogant noses at the Bill of Rights by promulgating gun restrictions specifically prohibited by the Second Amendment.
However, the Supreme Court ruling of June 26, 2008, overturned a leftist-inspired ban on firearms in Washington, D.C., thereby upholding the Constitutional right to bear arms.
That victory for the People should be very helpful in thwarting future attempts by the left to violate a citizen's right to bear arms, which is second only to free speech in the Bill of Rights.
While liberals have fought tooth and nail against the Second Amendment, despite its clarity and non-ambiguous language, they have fought just as ferociously to enact a right that simply does not exist in the US Constitution.
That would be the right to an abortion, more factually known as infanticide, the liberal version of human genocide that has resulted in the wanton murder of 50 million innocent lives in America since the Roe V. Wade death sentence was handed down in 1973.
Unlike the provisions of the Second Amendment, the so-called right to abortion is not codified in any of the governing instruments that make our democracy sustainable under the rule of law.
In many ways, abortion is similar to the unseemly manipulation of men and sperm by unethical, immoral women in Kenneth J. Gross's intriguing book titled, "SHE, Inc."
In that frightening feminist fantasy, intellectually elite liberal women use science and medicine to assure that their offspring are only female, as part of a grand scheme to usurp abusive male dominance with even more onerous female fascism.
Liberals like those in "SHE, Inc." have fabricated a non-existent constitutional right out of whole cloth in order to sanctify the brutal extermination of human life deemed too costly, inconvenient, or both, by the women involved.
Those who really care about human life must abandon attempts to neuter the constitutional right of the People to bear arms, and focus instead on the stealth right to abortion that has destroyed 50 million human lives since 1973.
