Abortion was determined legal by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Roe v. Wade decision, regardless of how you feel about it, is a Federal Law, which makes it a Constitutional Law. Federal Law according to the Constitution is the law of the land, it supersedes all State Laws. Abortion is legal until the fetus reaches viability, which is typically 23-25 weeks, it then becomes illegal unless the mothers life is in danger. This is the law, pro-lifers and Republicans don’t like it so they try skirt it.
Who are we to make a choice for someone else. Republicans, conservatives and gun nuts fly off the handle when the government tries any form of Gun Control but are glad to tell a women what she can do with her uterus. We do not have the right to tell anyone what to do with their body. Republicans don’t like the Mayor of New York saying what size sodas people can buy, but they are fine telling a woman her right to choice does not exist.
I do not claim to be an expert on this, but why do Republicans get upset about being dictated to, but are fine doing it to others. I do not have a real stance on abortion, I believe in our laws and Constitution. Laws are put into place to keep the order, Republicans don’t like the abortion law so they break it trying to make their own. Would it be ok for a pot smoker to dislike pot being illegal so they decide to make a new law that applies to their property and home. Sounds silly, but it is a smaller scale of what Republicans are doing.
President Obama and Democrats realize that if abortion is made illegal, women will get illegal abortions. As a member of the U.S. Government your religious beliefs cannot be pushed on others. That is in the 1st Amendment, clear as can be. You cannot toss the Constitution out the window if it doesn’t work for you and bring it back when it does. Our founding fathers did not create it to be used when it is convenient.
