Roe V Wade – Overreaction by the Masses
The news is ablaze with the leaked document on a possible decision on Roe V Wade. It is sad that one of the law clerks leaked an incomplete opinion to the news and I believe this person should be fired and disbarred for this political act. Now my opinion piece on why it is an Overreaction by the Masses.
When Roe V Wade hit the Supreme Court and was approved it made a significant change to how our Democracy works. This decision took the power away from the people to decide through their elected officials on how they wanted to deal with abortion. Many states have their own laws on the books already that dealt with this issue. The Constitutionality of having the courts overrule the voters and the states is not Constitutional. Yes, it took 50 years to figure this out – but the decision has not been made as of yet, only a leaked document.
Why an overreaction? In the last 50 years we have made amazing progress on birth control. There have been methods used over centuries and in the last 50 years birth control pills, shots and day after pills have become a reality. Responsible sex by both women and men would prevent pregnancy in the world of today where it may have not been reliable 50 years ago. It is called being responsible.
There is no reason to kill unborn babies because of irresponsibility. These children could be adopted to the many waiting parents that have no children. With our current medical advances there is no reason to have abortions because unwanted pregnancies should not exist.
What about rape and other serious crimes that result in pregnancy? Yeah – that is a tough one but is it the unborn babies fault? No. Again, there are many parents that would adopt that cannot have their own children. What about serious deformities or medical conditions? Again, a tough decision. That should be decided on a case-by-case basis.
There are many states that allow abortion even if Roe V Wade is overturned. In fact, there are only 9 out of the 50 states that have laws on their books for denying abortions. That means it is legal in 41 states providing certain conditions are met even if the law was overturned.
So, what is this really? It is a refocus by the Democrats to help them remain in power come November, but the diversion is not going to work. First of all, it changes nothing except for the 9 states that have laws against abortion. The Supreme Court is supposed to interpret the Constitution and by removing the Roe V Wade decision is the proper interpretation of the Constitution.
Abortion should be left up to the voters in each state. They should elect politicians who will bring the appropriate laws in to play in each state.
To me this is a big overreaction. It is a ploy by the Democrats and the news media to make a mountain out of a molehill. Nothing much will change if it is overturned. Everything remains the same if it isn’t.
People should move on and wait for the outcome. People should have responsible sex so there isn’t accidental pregnancies. In 2022 there is very few reasons that an abortion should be performed. That decision should be left to the states and the voters. In my opinion there should be very few reasons that this practice of abortion should exist. I already know how I feel about it and we have ways to prevent it. This shouldn’t be an issue in 2022.
