What it MEANS is that the unborn HUMAN is NOT a 'person'; but a blob of flesh.
An unborn eagle has WAY more 'rights' than a unborn human.
Its a good article. Roe v Wade is terrible law.
But overturning it will probably stop 0 abortions. Being realistic, abortion is here to stay. Like murder and rape, I personally want there to be far less of them. But abortions would be here to stay even if all 50 states outlawed them.
One would logically determine that a United States Bill of Rights would apply to Unites States citizens, and not, say, citizens of Costa Rica, Cuba, Zimbabwe, etc.
That is the argument I heard recently from a pro-choicer. That under the 14th Amendment (all persons born etc.) the fetus is not a citizen and therefore has no constitutional rights. The mother is a citizen and therefore has the right to determine what medical procedures are best for her. I havent really come up with a good rebuttal to that one yet.
This is why I would like to see a constitutional amendment stating that life begins at conception. As far as I know there has been no attempt at this.
Making RvW the cornerstone for nominating a judge to our Supreme Court, is beyond shortsighted...Protecting women's rights is horse puckie. RVW instead enables the sale of Baby Parts as one of the non-constitutional elements making the taxpayer party to this abomination. Snow and Murkowski only want the woman's vote...surely they are smart enough to see RvW is in it's entirety is Unconstitutional.
Special interests have no place in the SCOTUS.
