Abortion Is Not a Constitutional Right

President Obama on the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade: 

Statement by the President on Roe v. Wade Anniversary

Today, as we reflect on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, we recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health.  We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom.  And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children.  Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.

Freedom of Infanticide?
Freedom of Infanticide?

The Framers of the Constitution could not in their wildest imagination have foreseen that the very protections and freedoms they endeavored to create would one day be perverted to embrace infanticide under the pretense of “women’s health” and “freedom.” Had they known, “Abortion” would certainly have appeared in the Constitution as a repugnant evil absolutely forbidden in civilized society.

(Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation)

“Make no mistake, abortion-on-demand is not a right granted by the Constitution. No serious scholar, including one disposed to agree with the Court’s result, has argued that the framers of the Constitution intended to create such a right. Shortly after the Roe v. Wade decision, Professor John Hart Ely, now Dean of Stanford Law School, wrote that the opinion “is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.”

This idea that a woman with limited resources or support – or pursuing a career – has “no choice” other than abortion contradicts the very essence of “pro choice.” Given reality and the facts, most would choose life.

Never abandon HOPE! This evil must CHANGE!
