If the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, then abortions would be illegal.
True or False?
Too good not to post. From one of those “Might Be Related” links below, comes this cogent, erudite, well-reasoned defense of Roe V. Wade:
Roe v Wade is a Surpreme Court of US case on abortion rights. Roe (not her real identity, though you could wiki her and discover she’s now a pro-life lady. The idiot)
Yeah. Nice. Go prof-life. Want to preserve unborn children. It means you’re an idiot. Pot meet kettle.
was raped (ed. – no she wasn’t – that part was completely fabricated, as in a big fat stinkin’ LIE.)
and wanted to get an abortion but the state she lived in (I can’t remember what and I’m to lazy to wiki it) forbid abortion. They brought the case in the Supreme Court and the Court decided that there should be a right to choose or something along that line,
No, you ignorant douche. They mythicalled up a never-before-seen-or-heard-of, “Right to Privacy” inherent in the 4th Amendment, which essentially meant that under the protections of the Fourth Amendment, the government was specifically prohibited from preventing what was essentially a “private” action, at least without a search warrant. Come on, chica. I don’t even SUPPORT abortion, and I know that much.
and if a State makes a law contrary to that, it would be unconstitutional. To be honest, I can’t remember the judgment, really; we were studying the 14th Amendment more than the right to privacy (even though all the cases were on right to privacy; a right that is not guaranteed in the US Constitution)
Uh, mkay. Soooo then, uhm, tell me again how the decision in Roe V. Wade IS Constitutional, if the foundational premise supporting it IS NOT?!
14th Amendment is how the Supreme Court make up their own bunch of Bill of Rights that weren’t guaranteed by the people of the 1700s (since the US Constitution is really the will of the people of the 1700s; it is not at all the will of the people who are currently living in the US. The last amendment was in 1992. It’s horrible; though not as bad as Australian’s, I suppose…).
Ah yes. The “living document” defense. Yes, yes. Standard Lefty talking point: Our Constitution is an archaic throwback reminiscent of the besotted musings of a bunch of old elitist white guys in wigs. No application to our modern life whatsover. Except, you know, for that whole right-to-privacy thing, which of course is so, like TODAY, you know? And needs to be defended to the last breath. Provided you ever get a chance to TAKE a breath, that is.
One would suppose that for this individual to open her ignorant suck and expound on the virtues of a certain piece of legislation (ed.- No, that wasn’t a typo), one would hope she would at least know what the bloody freakin’ hell she is talking about! But it’s more along the lines of, “Yeah, there was this case, by these guys, about this stuff, for this one girl, from this place. And, uh, ABORTION ROCKS, DUDE! GO OBAMA!”
The only plus is apparently, this abortion survivor can’t vote. So, yeah, we got that going for us.
