Why do so many Americans not understand the Constitution?
I’m not going to share with you whether I’m for or against abortion or somewhere in the middle, because it doesn’t matter. Nor does it matter if you are for or against abortion or somewhere in the middle.
Instead I want to talk about dealing with the way things are, and not the way some people wish them to be.
Didn’t we all study Civics and the Constitution in middle and high school?
With this past week’s ruling on Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court ruled that the Federal government has no authority over women’s bodies.
Read that again.
Whether you’re on the Left or the Right of politics isn’t it good to know that the Supreme Court of the USA has ruled that neither the SCOTUS nor the Federal government should determine your abortion rights?
Yet many Leftist women and men are running around the country acting as if they WANT the Federal government to make this bodily decision for them — but only if they agree with their position.
Be careful with placing your bodily control in the hands of some faraway, unelected committee. The mistake they’re making is using government coercion to force their views on society in the first place.
So why did the SCOTUS decide to overturn Roe vs. Wade?
Mainly because the original court case was baseless. There was/is nothing in the Constitution to point to to make it even remotely relevant to the topic of abortion.
So yeah, for 50 or so years people have been going around thinking abortion is some sort of constitutional right, but the Constitution is neither pro-life or pro choice. There’s nothing in there about abortion to talk about.
I see some people on social media posting things like “the fact that FIVE PEOPLE can tell 167,500,000 women in the American what they can and cannot do with their own bodies is a f*cking travesty.”
The SCOTUS is doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of that.
