Outcry Against Abortion

I've read an article today regarding the nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court. The article emphasized that Miers is opposed to abortion, and that when running for Dallas city council, she said she "supported a constitiutional amendment to ban the procedure in most cases", and that and that she had the same view on the use of city funds and facilities for the procedure, (Times West Virginian, 10-19-05, 4A). That does not surprise me, what got me was a statement made by a democratic senator: "This raises very serious concerns about her ability to fairly apply the law without bias in this regard" (Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California). Just in case Mrs. Feinstein is unaware our Constitiution never does guaruntee the right of a women to have an abortion. The Decision of Roe V. Wade was based on the 9th and 14th amendments, "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retianed by the people", reads the 9th. the 14th says "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;". To say that taking the life of an unborn baby is a right retained by the people is absolutely horrific, and read the second part of the quotation of the 19th, "nor shall any State deprive any person of life". If scientists can declare that a single-celled germ, that does not even have a nucleus is a living thing, then I think we can declare that sperm and egg united a living thing, and did you know that when abortion is normally performed that baby is perfectly formed, can hear, has aheart and a brain etc... surely this baby we are killing is a person, and thus it is murder. Its time we on the right start combating the far-lefties with core facts from the Constitution, so even when we look at the Constitution without bias, we can say that abortion is unlawful.

If you need more evidence, look at when these amendments were passed, 1791, and 1866, a time when abortion would not have really been thought of, so if it wasn't an issue originally protected by these amendments what right have we 100+ years down the road to declare these issues under the protection of our Constitution? Surely murder existed back then, the press existed, religious persecution existed, and all these things are still protected. Abortion was not near as common, if it existed at all, I bet if we were to look at what Congress assembled meant by these amendments we would know that abortion would have never crossed their minds. God bless you all, and open the eyes of lefties who think our Constitutional rights no longer apply to religious people, we Christians for example.
