THAT is precisely the point. It is *NOT* Constitutional. It is *NOT* consistent with our founding charter.
I will only believe that when you can show me even ONE state in this union that can sanction YOUR death with the exception of 'Due Process' and 'Just cause'. Constitutionally, the state does not have the right to sanction YOUR death in any other way. And neither does the Fed. This is a massively important principle, cutting right to the heart of our very first enumerated right (as granted us by GOD).
You go ahead though. Knock yourself out. Things like this are why I am no longer a Republican.
I guess you missed the part of my last reply where I said "abortion is murder".
Maybe you're an attorney. Perhaps that's why you think I'm disagreeing with you, even when I'm strongly agreeing with your fundamental principles.
I never said that states have a right to make the killing of unborn children legal. You dubbed that into my comment, just like you're dubbing it into Sarah Palin's political stance on the issue.
Seeing as how you think like an attorney, I'd expect you to understand the over-riding strategy here. It's not to ultimately create 50 Roe vs Wade laws. It's to take that power away from the feds, and give it back to the states, where the battle to protect the unborn can be more effectively won.
As you say, ultimately, no governing body has the power to condemn an innocent, unborn human to death by fiat or decree. But, it's a fight that will go on, and it shouldn't happen at the federal level. If the question is to be fought at all, who says the feds should have any say in it? I say they shouldn't, and so does the 10th Amendment.
