Anniversary of a Dark Day
Newtown has reminded us how much we love our children. The Left is stripping away our rights to protect our children while women’s rights are supreme over our children’s rights. How can we forget the devastating blow to the unborn when innocence was ignored with the Supreme Court’s 7-2 ruling on Roe v. Wade back on January 22, 1973? With respect to the 50M aborted who were never given the opportunity to speak out for their rights, the very least owed is a factual discussion.
Why wasn’t Jane Roe (Norma McCorvey) prosecuted for perjury when she made the false claim of having been raped and why wasn’t the Supreme Court’s decision then reversed? Roe, a 21-year-old, had become pregnant from an affair and admitted to such. With such backlog on the docket, why were the attorneys allowed a second chance to argue their case when both attorneys had failed in making a strong case (12/13/71 and 10/11/72)?
There are serious long-lasting implications, one of which is Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS). Having multiple abortions greatly increases the risk of ovarian and breast cancer while this procedure to the unborn is too gruesome to discuss.
Planned Parenthood’s (PP) new report reveals record taxpayer funding and abortions at an all-time high—$542M last fiscal year. PP has performed more than 1M abortions the last three years with nearly a 30% drop in cancer screenings and more than an 11% drop in contraceptive services. If 42% of the national total of abortions is with PP but no federal funding can be used for abortions because it’s illegal—well, the numbers just don’t add up.
This administration has either stepped in and directly funded PP itself or has threatened to withhold states’ federal funding unless decisions are reversed when states have fought to block PP’s access to federal funding.
When did PP become a government agency—funded with our taxpayer dollars—and why isn’t an audit required?
Justices William Rehnquist and Byron White dissented. Justice Rehnquist articulated their dissention eloquently: (1) “While a party may vindicate his own constitutional rights, he may not seek vindication for the rights of others;” and, (2) “My understanding of past practice is that a statute found to be invalid as applied to a particular plaintiff, but not unconstitutional as a whole, is not simply ‘struck down’ but is, instead, declared unconstitutional as applied to the fact situation before the Court.”
Will the Liberal ever admit to where they’d be today if their parents had followed through with an abortion? The circular reasoning on the Left is philosophically inconsistent.
