With the SCOTUS hearing augments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization yesterday the sabers are rattling on both sides of the fence on this issue. This case was so important that we had to add a second round of Pro-Life News this week.
Read the following excerpt of Justice Sotomayor questioning of Scott G. Stewart, Solicitor General, Jackson, Mississippi; How is your interest anything but a religious view? The issue of when life begins has been hotly debated by philosophers since the beginning of time. It’s still debated in religions. So, when you say this is the only right that takes away from the state the ability to protect a life, that’s a religious view, isn’t it ––
Is she seriously saying that protecting life is a “religious only” point of view and if one is not “religious” they would have no interest in the protection of life? It appears so.
Maybe it is just me, but I think she forgot something very important here while the Constitution says nothing about Abortion is does speak about defending life and States rights:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.…
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.…
…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 laws.
