We've gotten way off base and I hope the pendulum takes a swing back towards morality and goodness and some "real" conscience of the acts we have permitted under the guise of Freedom.
Sure they can . . . and they will.
If the Supreme Court does reverse Roe v. Wade totally as it should (it has already reversed it in part), the most likely outcome will be that the decision to outlaw or not outlaw abortion will fall back to the states, which is where it was and constitutionally should be in the first place.
All you have to do is listen to the statements of the various anti-Roe Justices on the Supreme Court right now to know this.
This statement assumes liberals actually CARE about the rights of the innocent. Every action they take , every cause they espouse shows this is not the case. Liberals only care about creating a society totally free of personal responsibility. You commit a murder...No death penalty. You have an unwanted pregnancy...just get an abortion. At heart liberals are hedonists with a strong elitist streak.
It very much depends on how they do it. If they recognize officially that life begins at conception then abortion will be legally defined as murder in all US states and territories. End of abortion.
God Save America (Please)
If liberals really cared about the little guy this would be a valid question. However, liberals only care about power. And abortion is power. It's power of men over women, who otherwise might ask for a relationship before having sex. And it's power of both over the unborn.
I think the Supreme Court can conclude that the Constitution did in no way intend to give women the FREEDOM to Kill their unborn child and make it binding throughout the land.
The penalty for engaging in such an act would fall to each State.
The Men who created the Constitution never dreamed that the "gentle sex" would become murderers of their own flesh and blood.Murder is always wrong except in self-defense.
Freedom to be a conscienceless trollop...
What penalties would you recommend?
Let the hypocrisy begin.
What hypocrisy, as you define the word, are you expecting?
And abortion is power.
It's power of men over women, who otherwise might ask for a relationship before having sex.
False. Men have no legal power to coerce abortion; no man can legally disclaim financial obligations for a non-aborted infant.
And it's power of both over the unborn.
False again. Abortion is something that women only can authorize legally...it is something that the women who "choose" it do to babies and to the men who father those babies. The culpability could not be more clear. The refusal of too many conservatives to openly identify that cuplability is the reason abortion persists.
The "blame the guy" motif is just not in concert with legal realities.
No man. not a single one, can authorize an abortion in America.
Technically possible, but pro-life justices tend to oppose legislating from the bench. So realistically, the best case is to have the USSC turn the issue completely back to the states.
Women are not virtuous by virtue of being women. Some are, some aren't. Some men are, some aren't. Mythologizing one sex over the other is as bad as conflating character and race.
For their protected groups.
You commit a murder...No death penalty. You have an unwanted pregnancy...just get an abortion. At heart liberals are hedonists with a strong elitist streak.
On what do you base the parenthetical contention reprised above?
