A draft of a Supreme Court Ruling on abortion, that was printed in the New York Times, has the political world up in arms. The draft asserts that, Roe v Wade, the case that affirmed the right of a woman to decide for herself what happens if she gets pregnant, is knocked down based on the writings of an English Lawyer from the 1600s who believed witches should be put to death. The claim is that Roe was initially decided incorrectly, and that there is no support in the Constitution for the right of privacy. Additionally, Roe should be knocked down because abortion is not specifically mentioned in the Constitution. Hate to say it but the reasoning is so inept any freshman law student could easily rebut it! The right to privacy is well established under law and many rights we take for granted are not specifically named. Sad to watch the Justices twist themselves into knots in order to to take away this right!
The leaked draft ruling written by Judge Alito, ending a Woman’s right to decide what happens when she gets pregnant, will also create a threat to individual privacy. If a woman has no right to privacy in her most intimate of decisions, then nobody in America does! The right to decide, now, rests with the woman as a right to privacy established by the court 50 years ago. It is settled precedent!
The last 3 Judges appointed to the Supreme Court by President Trump, Justice Barret, Justice Kavanaugh, and Justice Gorsuch, all testified to Congress that the right to an abortion was settled precedent under law, when questioned during their confirmation hearings. This means that they lied in their hearings. Three of the Judges sitting on the Highest Court in the land, thought it was ok to commit perjury in their hearings. That it was ok to commit a felony during their hearing. Let me say that again, 3 Supreme Court Judges sitting on the highest court in the land thought it was ok to commit perjury in their hearings! This means they lied to the American People. That is a problem. That is a huge problem!
If a woman has no right to privacy in her most intimate decisions, then you don’t either. This assault on individual freedom will not stop here. Any right couched in the right to privacy, like Gay Marriage, or even interracial marriage are under threat. It allows the Government to intrude on any private decision you might choose to make that the Government does not like! This decision will take away the right to privacy in our individual lives because it will kill the legal right to individual privacy in our private decisions.
Should Roe v Wade fall it will result in the Court taking away a right. Something that has never happened. We have always worked to expand rights not take them away. It is a sad day in America the land of the Free, when half of our Legislators are working to take away rights instead of working to expand them!
