Abortion: Pro Life and Pro Choice
In light of the "leaked Supreme Court opinion" regarding abortion rights and a possible overturning of Roe vs Wade, and other precedents. Now is the time for the so-called "Abortion" issue to finally be dealt with. Yes, I'm aware of both sides of Pro Life and Pro Choice, but before I get into those two items, I would like to share 35 years worth of experience with you. Alot of it is research, while other aspects come from being a "people watcher" for a great many years.
Before you get your feathers ruffled, yes I'm a man. However, that didn't prevent me from knowing many women who have had abortions. 1 out of 200, said they regretted their experience and decision. The rest said it was one of the best decisions they ever made in their life. Why? Most women said it had more to do with continuing on their path to living a better life. Some said, they weren't ready at the time. And a percentage said they wanted to be a mother, but later on down the road.
To be as honest as I can, Pro Life and Pro Choice are political groups/parties. These two together shows public there's a divide on abortion. It is done on purpose. In essence, it's a political show to keep public at each other's throats and fearful. Unfortunately, I've watched as it has happened, very slowly. Very slowly have individuals rights been disappearing and other false rights have appeared. Yes, I said false rights.
The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution
The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution needs to be better understood and not by lawyers who know how to manipulate intentions of said documents, but by individuals on an individual level. Watching as politicians strip away individual rights at every whim they get, something has to be done to protect individuals from politicians.
Before the Constitution was established, the Declaration of Independence was written and signed in 1776. The Constitution was established in 1789 and revised in 1992. You might be wondering, why did I mention Declaration of Independence? Because, it matters.
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world."
When you read, you'll find instructions to guide public about how things are to go, moving forward. Hence, creation of the Constitution. Within Constitution, "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."
Between Declaration of Independence and Constitution, nowhere, does Government reserve any authority to surpress, oppress or usurp individual rights or freedoms.
Civil Rights and Human Rights
To be completely honest again, Civil Rights and Human Rights, are just a gimmick. Actually, there isn't either one of those in existence and I'll gladly explain why not. Rights on their most basic level is on an individual level and each individual reserves equal rights among their peers, regardless of sexuality, sex identity, religion, education, gender, race or any other reason. Equal Rights doesn't exist when not equally applied to all. Therefore, if you advocate for something, such as no guns or abortions, or anything else, with regards to someone else's life, then you diminish your own rights. Even if you don't exercise your right
However, not exercising some of your individual rights works against you in more ways than you might think. Meaning, if you don't exercise your most important rights, then you will lose all of your rights in the end. Trust me, I continue to envision America's path and it isn't pretty, but is extremely dangerous. Not to set off any alarms, but in a way this is a warning message as well. If you refuse to stand up for yourself and others, then everyone will suffer the consequences.
This isn't philosophy or sociology or psychology. It is a proven path, which has been slowly revealing itself, as years have passed. Every individual on Earth has unalienable Rights, regardless of where they live or what culture they live within. Your individual rights are innate/inherent. They're NOT granted by any institution or political group.
Abortion: Is It A Right? Is Procedure Protected By Constitution?
Let's bury abortion for once and all.
Abortion: Is it a right? Yes. Is procedure protected by Constitution? Yes.
I'll explain. unalienable rights(Constitution) equals innate and/or inherent. Technically speaking, innate and/or inherent rights begin at birth. However, Supreme Court stepped in and granted unborn rights as. Roe vs Wade is an example, where courts used viability as a point where unborn's rights are established.
Now, to make a better connection, let's put it differently. Abortion itself is a medical procedure. A procedure known by many doctors of U.S. Medical Establishment, which is part of U.S. Economic make up, as is Healthcare services. Every man, woman, child or teenager reserves a right to use economy. They're to have access to services and products produced by sources within U.S. overall economic make-up.
Yes, it is realized that age limit type of restrictions are necessary to have some assemblance of order. Having said that, many things could be changed and not made worse, while some changes can have devastating effects. Stripping a woman of their right to access economy is immoral and cannot be allowed. If Supreme Court reverses Roe vs Wade, then those who do decide to vote against Roe vs Wade, should be arrested for crimes against humanity, rights violations and treason.
On a different note, let me get you to think about something else...one's private life is just that, a private life. You, I nor anyone else reserves a right to dictate or force others to live how we want them to live. That mean, abortion isn't any of your business unless you're seeking to have one for yourself. If someone wants to ask you for your help, then you have choices: (a) help out or (b) don't help them. That decision is yours to make and yes you can even voice your disapproval, via Right to Free Speech. But, other than that, leave them alone.
Thank you for your time.
