The following article by Herbert W. Titus, JD, and Christine Ross first appeared in the May/June 99 issue of Life Advocate magazine. ---
The mainstream media tell us that the Supreme Court legalized abortion with its Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. The media also tell us that there is nothing we can do about it because Roe v. Wade is the law of the land.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Abortion is not legal in America! Recognition of this fact is the first step for the pro-life movement in its campaign to turn back the murderous scourge on innocent babies.
Indeed, heart disease (738,781 deaths per year) is not the number one cause of death in the United States - abortion is, at well over a million deaths per year.
Article VI of our nations founding document declares that [t]his Constitution, and the laws of the United States.. .made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made under the authority of the United States shall be the supreme law of the land.
What is clearly missing from this Constitutional list of supreme laws is a court opinion. This was not an oversight.
Our Constitutions writers knew that a court opinion could never be law; much less the supreme law of the land. This is especially true if that court opinion contradicted the Constitution itself

“Abortion Is NOT Legal!”
Someone better go arrest all them abortion doctors then.
stop sniffing glue
To think abortion is “legal” in this country you have to believe that courts make laws.
I am as prolife as anyone, but -— making us all look silly does nothing positive, for any of us.
Don't forget to arrest every woman who has every had an abortion, their husbands, boyfriend, family members and friends that knew before the fact that the woman was going to have an abortion.
They must also be arrested and charged with murder or conspiracy to commit murder.
“To think abortion is legal in this country you have to believe that courts make laws.”
Are you prepared to go make a citizens arrest that the local Planned Barrenhood “clinic?”
No. I’m committed to continuing the fight to end abortion by replacing this entire political class with those who can actually read and who will follow the Constitution as they have sworn to do.
If an officer or officers of one branch of government violate their oath, does that relieve the officers of the other branches to violate theirs?
Sorry. I was in a hurry and botched that post. Let me rephrase:
If an officer or officers of one branch of government violate their oath, does that that create an excuse for the officers of the other branches to violate their own?
It isn’t stupid. It is just irrelevant because the points they make are not understood or accepted even though they are right.
The “supreme law of the land” is now and always will be GOD’s LAW as expessed in His Holy Word. All law is rooted in scripture.
Too many conservatives have just given up thru all the years and all the murders, and let the Left rule over us all. Now we have finally taken off the gloves and they are scared as hell. When we take back our country (our childrens'future), all the bastions of liberalism will crumble and turn to dust. Abortion 'rights' with go with them.
Our country has taken a long time to sink to these depths, and it will be a long time coming back. It won't happen tomorrow...but the journey of one thousand miles starts with one step.
When did the US Congress pass a law legalizing abortion?
That statement bears repeating. It is very correct.
The real crime of Roe v Wade is that the Supreme Court made law out of whole cloth. There was absolutely nothing in the Constitution that would support that ruling. This is a matter that is up to the individual states of the United States.
As much as I abhor the concept of abortion I would support the law of any state that allows abortion as I would equally support the law of any state that prohibits abortion.
When the courts can make law as opposed to ruling on the legality of law made by legislation of the states, there is no law, there is no judiciary, there is no executive, there is no legislative body, all that exists is tyranny of judicial fiat abetted by a silent executive, a silent legislature and the people.
It is legally very wrong and makes all Pro Life people look like fools.
Work as you choose to elect people will appoint judges who will reverse Roe v. Wade, but to call it not the current law of the land is legal insanity.
You know that would not happen. You are posing extremes because this solution makes you uncomfortable. IMO
Just after they passed gas. 50 million and counting.
I didn’t become a cynical pro-life bastard by choice.
Yes, I understand that the premise of this thread is false in that abortion is still legal in the US.
However, once Roe is overturned or the Human Life Amendment is passed, those doctors and women who conspire to murder an unborn baby will be charged with murder.
Furthermore, all those who conspire with the woman and/or doctor to murder a child must be charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
Technically correct. As I said, the journey of 1000 miles begins with one step. It will take a long time.
