It’s been a day since a leak of the draft statement from the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court about the tentative overturning of Roe v Wade. It’s already to the point that I doubt that I can say much about it that hasn’t already been said. But I can still offer my opinion, so here goes, for whatever that’s worth.
For one thing, finding the person who leaked the statement should be pretty simple. Just look for the guy who’s sweating bullets. Jokes aside, it’s going to seriously suck for the guy if he were to get caught. We know that it’s a bad idea to piss off a lawyer, but at least five Justices on the Supreme Court? When they catch him, his cheeks are going to be spread from sea to shining sea!
But as for the ruling itself, it bears pointing out that it hasn’t officially been made. The papers themselves pertained to a tentative ruling, but it would be an expected ruling if the court were to vote on the issue, considering how the Supreme Court is currently composed. Having said that, I doubt that Chief Justice John Roberts would have written up 70 pages taking on an iron man version of the Roe v Wade ruling’s philosophy just for kicks.
Much of the reasoning behind the statement is based on the principle of the 10th amendment, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, and is unfortunately ignored quite a bit. It reads as follows:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
It’s because of this that the original Roe v Wade ruling overstepped the boundaries provided by the Constitution, as the Constitution doesn’t say a word about abortion. Therefore, the federal government cannot issue a nationwide mandate regarding it, and it would be up to each of the individual states to rule for themselves.
There are those who point out that having to carry a child to term and then care for it has the potential to interfere with the expecting mother’s right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Putting aside for a moment how repugnant it is to reduce a developing life to a mere inconvenience, proponents of abortion neglect to realize that the developing child is, in fact, an individual human life, possessing genetic markers that identify the child.
Making the left’s position more difficult is that all signs point to the fact that a human life begins at the point of conception. The left attempts to make the point that human life begins at the point of birth, even though they have no scientific grounding for their stance. The fact is, when it’s pointed out that life begins at conception, the left loses any foundation for it’s position on abortion.
Now, if you were to look at the arguments above that I’ve made against abortion, you may have noticed that my arguments were based either on observed science, or on the basic underlying philosophy of this republic’s government at the time of its founding. I bring this up to highlight the fact that leftists love to make the pro-life position out to be a religious position, with the premise being that any appearance of mysticism would diminish the validity of any related moral viewpoint. The left does this because they feel less inclined to take religion seriously, portraying their opponents who do as being fundamentalist zealots and pharisaical busybodies.
The reason they do so is apparent when you consider that they (like many on the right) attempt to court the low-Q vote, and among the left’s main weapons for doing so are reductive statements.
As you can see, I’ve waged my points and counterpoints in this article based on facts that are known and observable. But if we were to bring religion into it, it would be plain to see that abortion is offensive when compared to the superordinate principles of nearly every major religion in the world today.
While these reasons play a role in my decision to oppose abortion today, these weren’t the initial reasons I decided I was against the barbaric practice. In fact, as I developed my opinion on the issue, it actually became the issue that turned me against the Democratic party. The reason for this was because the Democratic party’s insistence on abortion revealed something about them.
And that something was that the Democratic party has a shitty life-culture.
It was when I was in high school that I had more Democrat leanings. One might expect this, considering the sheer load of indoctrination that comes from the education system. But shortly after graduating, I started thinking for myself. As is typically the case when one does so, I began resisting the indoctrination. The matter of abortion and the Democrat’s insistence on it was what turned me against them. It was because of their insistence on abortion that I came to see that the Democrats and the political left has a shitty life-culture.
And the more I examined the left for what they believed in, the more apparent it became how bad their life-culture was. They view human beings as inconvenient, especially when they must be cared for and provided for. They view human beings as being part of the problem, as they view us in terms of our impact on the environment, especially when they start talking about overpopulation.
It’s obvious that the left tends more towards a hatred of human life. They view humans in terms of the waste they make, and they even seek to limit their numbers.
This contrasts heavily with the right, which views human beings as each partaking in humanity’s marvelous potential. Humans that live today can celebrate life like no other point in history up until now, and the right wants everyone to have the opportunity to do so, complete with the freedoms that beautify life in the modern world.
The reality is, everyone is entitled to a chance at life, regardless of what their initial outlook may be.
A compromise with abortion was proposed with the reasoning of “safe, legal, and rare”. In other words, abortions were supposed to be rare. But when you see the fact that some women are wearing T-shirts that brag about the number of abortions that they’ve had, it’s obvious that the intent of this compromise was not being honored.
Having said all this, I think it’s pretty evident that a significant shift in American culture is underway. This is signified in the many cultural victories that we’ve been seeing in recent months. For one thing, there are legal victories, including the Rittenhouse trial, which signified the right to defend one’s self from attackers. The Jussie Smollet trial showed us just how poorly the left-controlled information media can call it. CNN+ was an enormous failure, which might have even made it clear to the leftist outlet that people just aren’t interested in them anymore. Ron DeSantis stood up to Disney as Disney was poised to deliver sexual perversion directly to children, and got Disneyland’s special privileges revoked. Elon Musk’s pending purchase of Twitter to turn Twitter into a privately-owned platform would result in the platform actually becoming a free and open marketplace of ideas, a fact that made leftists panic because they’ve grown accustomed to the establishment censoring their opponents.
And now it seems like Roe v Wade is going to be overturned. Could this be the beginning of the age of the Republican party that actually does things?
How is the left reacting? By going ballistic. And you know what? I say, let them. This is how we win. Because the left only knows how to respond to being challenged by overplaying their hands, I say, let’s just keep challenging them. They’ll either wear themselves out and realize that they’re going nowhere, or they’ll make it evident to everyone looking on that they’re insane, and therefore cannot be looked to for sound ideas on how to run a society.
And considering what they’ve done to American society when given the chance during the lockdowns, they deserve every last defeat that gets served to them. And after this happens, every child that shall come afterwards shall enter into a world that is better for the fact that the world will no longer be run by leftists.
And they’ll have the fact that they were born to be thankful for.
