With 1973s Roe v. Wade 9 UNELECTED men and women have played God with innocent life on the Supreme Court - WITHOUT TRIAL they have condemned to PAINFUL DEATHS more than 48 million babies for the crime of being "unwanted" or "inconvenient."
This is why Catholics vote pro-life under the penalty of grave sin in this country.
As an election promise the Obamination made it clear that he would appoint pro-abortion justices to the Supreme Court. In the first summer of his presidency he made good on this promise and the blood is not just on his hands, but also on the citizens who elected him into office. It was the same with Slick Willy, too.
What can Catholics do? Prayer and penance and the pro-life vote for this spiritual battle.
And we must work to use the Constitution to make abortion illegal instead of amending it. The unborn are "persons" as defined by the 14th amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection. The Supreme Court never declared abortion itself to be a constitutional right.
What does the 14th amendment say? "...nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law." And furthermore, "Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
If Congress can just declare unborn babies "persons" under the law, the constitutional case for abortion will collapse.
When the Supreme Court handed down its now infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined "right to privacy" which it "discovered" in so-called "emanations" of "penumbrae" of the constitution. The Supreme Court said: "We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins...the judiciary at this point in the development of man's knowledge is not in a position to speculate as to the answer." Then the High Court made a key admission: "If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case [i.e., "Roe" who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment."
Now we are 36 years into it and that's a long time. Nazi killing lasted 12 years. Let's make an effort to bring this menace to an end. Vote pro-life.
