Is a first year Logics course a requirement for Supreme Court Justices?
Or is all that is required a devious mind and a poltical appointment? I think the main requirements for the Justices who sat on the bench for the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, were track shoes and a pole vault, so they could all the more easily make one leap of logic after another, one non-sequitur after another and one logical fallacy after another, in route to the worst Supreme Court Decision since the Dred Scott in 1857 , that upheld slavery.
The Declaration of Independence quite clearly states that “..,all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights…” among these being listed first and foremost, the right to life. It is listed first because it is foremost of all the unalienable rights, because without life, the rights to liberty and the pursuit of happiness are meaningless, at least on this side of Glory.
Let me further point out a small fact that our robed legalists seemed to have missed. The text says “men”; not men, women and children. Or infants, teenagers and 50 to 70 year olds. Or good Germans and non-Jews. Therefore can we conclude that only men have unalienable rights under the American Constitution?
Of course not. In the original intent, and in the context of the times and the document, “men” actually refers to all members of mankind. Men and women, children of all ages, old people, Jews and non-Jews, and pre-natal and post-natal infants. All human beings have a unalienable right to life that can not be challenged without the due process of the law. Pre-natal infants are fully human from the moment of conception. Their DNA does not code for rats, chimps, ground squirrels or parakeets or cockroaches.
For years we have allowed this truth to be clouded by the evolutionary fairy tale of Ernst Haeckel, who taught that all embryos recapitulate their “evolutionary history”. We’ve confused people into thinking if we kill the baby in the early third tri-mester we’re only killing a chimp. But that fabrication was shot down decades ago, not long after Haeckels trial for faking his embryo drawings, and only remains in highschool textbooks and on secular TV. It was only one of the many Darwinian speculations that led to the wanton destruction of innocent human life.
They are human, and they are alive. In fact Congress ruled the following;
“Physicians, biologists, and other scientists agree that conception [they defined fertilization and conception to be the same] marks the beginning of the life of a human being — a being that is alive and is a member of the human species. There is overwhelming agreement on this point in countless medical, biological, and scientific writings.“ (1)
Once again we find the Supreme Court playing games with the constitution, just as they did back in 1857, in the Dred Scott decision. In the Dred Scott pro-slavery decision, though, they only presumed to have authority over liberty.
In Roe v. Wade they abrogated authority over human life itself. Trust me, no human life is sacred or safe while Roe v. Wade stands as law of the land.
A side issue? Don’t make me laugh.
(1) Report, Subcommittee on Separation of Powers to Senate Judiciary Committee S-158, 97th Congress, 1st Session 1981, p. 7 On pages 7-9, the report lists a “limited sample” of 13 medical textbooks, all of which state categorically that the life of an individual human begins at conception.
