This submission addresses the recent abortion SCOTUS ruling on June 27th.
The recent Supreme Court ruling on Texas abortion clinics needs much closer examination, and by that same token so too does the overall question of abortion and how We proceed in the future as a moral nation that truly does value all life.
An Unalienable Right to Life

Life has intrinsic value, but pro-abortionists of the Far Left and the Democratic Party, who have already received their unalienable God-given right to life, have ignored the rights of the unborn to live since the 1973 Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision. They have attempted to desensitize American society to the murders of nearly 70 million babies, horrifically and painfully killed by being ripped apart, suctioned, chemically burned and decapitated, and far too often their agenda has been advanced by Supreme Court Justices, who have interjected their own political bias into a case rather than objectively interpret the law, just as America witnessed once more on June 27th, 2016.
The Court's opinion, written by Justice Stephen Breyer, struck down two safety-directed and medically sound common sense provisions of Texas law that demanded abortion physicians must have "admitting privileges" at a hospital within 30 miles of their abortion clinics and that abortion clinics must meet the standards of an "ambulatory surgical center." The decision called these provisions an "undue burden" on a woman's non-existent and phantom "right" to an abortion, which illustrates how sick and lost America has become, as our courts, many so-called "leaders" and many citizens define what constitutes life based on convenience, the height of inhuman evil.
Star Parker, a well-known journalist, observed in her June 29th article that the requirement for Texas abortion clinics to meet the standards on an "ambulatory surgical center", a provision adopted by 20 other states, was a direct response to the Kermit Gosnell case in Pennsylvania. Gosnell operated a filthy, unregulated clinic for years, and he was convicted on manslaughter and murder charges stemming from his unsavory, immoral and incompetent procedures.
Many Americans have a great appreciation for their right to privacy, but that right does not supersede the right of the unborn to their lives. The hypothesis advanced in the 1965 Griswold vs Connecticut decision and the basis for Roe vs Wade was created from thin air and incoherent logic, pulled straight from the Supreme Court's ass. In similar fashion, the Court's June 27th decision was pulled from its collective ass, with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Elena Kagan, Anthony Kennedy and Sonia Sotomayor joining Breyer in finding within the 14th Amendment and the U.S. Constitution a "right" unknown to our Founding Fathers, a right that actually embodies an atrocity that the Founders most certainly would have rejected if it had come before them.
There is absolutely no mention of anything in the U.S. Constitution or the Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments that remotely resembles any right to abortion. As such, anything concerning abortion must fall to the States, because the Tenth Amendment plainly states: "The powers not delegated to the United Sates by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Justice Antonin Scalia, a staunch conservative, provided years of objective service and his adjudication of cases should serve as a template. Scalia noted in 2009: "I do not believe that the Constitution requires States to permit abortion, but neither do I believe it invalidates state laws that permit abortion".
Following the latest trends activated by minority protests and their own whims, time and again, ignorant high-perched idiots on the Supreme Court, this council of kings __ court jesters to be more accurate __ have supplanted sound existing laws, proper precedents, referendums and the will of the people and tradition with perversions of the law, as viewed through the lens of Obamacare, "gay" [same-sex] marriage and religious liberty. They make law rather than interpret law objectively, and in the process, they betray America and trample on the critical ingredient of our democratic constitutional republic __ our Liberty.
Thomas Jefferson, a lawyer and our third U.S. President, foresaw this day, stating: "... the germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the judiciary; an irresponsible body ... advancing its noiseless step like a thief over the field of the jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the states ... [It] will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated."
While one ponders all of this, bear in mind that Margaret Sanger's Negro Project, the fountainhead of Planned Parenthood, started as a eugenics plan to contain the "inferior" races through birth control, sterilization and abortion, a plan to make certain only the most "fit" were allowed to be born. And, as Rev. Jesse Peterson observes in 'From Rage to Responsibility', Sanger never intended for abortion to be widespread in the white population; she viewed abortion as a method for improving the population by convincing poor minorities to murder their unborn babies.
Since 1939 abortion on demand has been a part of the Far Left's vision for America and the Democratic Party's platform. In fact, abortion as birth control is implicit in the Democratic Party's platform for 2016 and beyond, and they are demanding the revocation of all restrictions on abortion, including the gruesome partial-birth abortions in which late-term babies are murdered as they exit the birth canal.
On June 27th, Hillary Clinton tweeted: "Women won't be 'punished' for exercising their basic rights," suggesting that babies are a form of punishment rather than a gift from God, unless the mother decides she wants the baby. But packaging abortion as "a woman's right to choose" ignores the rights of the father and the rights of the unborn child.
Abortion is the murder of a human child, and it should be illegal.
America's Founding Fathers articulated one's right to life in the Declaration of Independence, in such a manner that the right to life is known and recognized to be fundamental to the unalienable God-given rights our Constitution was designed to protect; and, since life begins at conception, each individual human life has an unalienable right to life from its earliest beginning. This is especially true once the unborn baby can survive outside the womb, and as such, even in the womb, these babies are deserving of "due process" and "equal protection" under the law, as provided under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.
Unmask the horror of abortion and reveal the beauty and worth of those little persons residing in millions of wombs across America, our fellow human beings, in every definition of the word "person" __ Little perfectly formed human babies. Negate and nullify the abortionists' claim to constitutional primacy, with the certainty that these little human beings' unalienable rights come from God by virtue of the fact that all humans are created in His image, imbued with a unique dignity and worth not found in the rest of creation, and move America to once again see abortion as grossly immoral, barbaric and criminal, just as America viewed it centuries before this generation.
End this abominable practice by advancing the standard that "these truths" are "self-evident" throughout States' constitutions and Congressional mandates, while dismissing and refusing to obey the Supreme Court's edicts that are based on pretexts and ill-conceived logic and that are contrary to American principles that value life and liberty.
