Democrats are worried about Alito making abortion illegal?

January 11th, 2006

I’m worried about the Democrats’ total misunderstanding of how the law works.

EVEN if Alito were to cast the vote that strikes down the abomination of logic which is Roe vs. Wade, viagra sale view he would NOT be making abortion illegal.

He would be making it possible for the state legislatures to again exercise their democratic duty of regulating the matter.

Some states would certainly prohibit abortion. Others would not.

The posture that Alito could single handly deny women access to abortions is dastardly and duplicitous.

I’m so mad I could spit.

Either there are U.S. senators who are so stupid that they don’t understand the roles of our three branches of government OR there are U.S. senators who are such manipulative pieces of trash that they don’t mind misrepresenting the truth in an effort to panic the American public into thinking that the Supreme Court is going to make abortion illegal IF Judge Alito is confirmed.

Shame on you, Senators. Shame on you.

    While what you are saying may be technically true, there are many US states, including Wisconsin, that currently have criminal abortion statutes on the books. If Roe v. Wade were repealed, women and physicians in Wisconsin would face prison and fines for the performance of an abortion for any reason other than when a pregnant woman was dying. The 1973 landmark case of Roe v. Wade is the only thing stopping the enforcement of this criminal abortion statute. So therefore, it would be illegal, without new legislation in Wisconsin.

    But the Supreme Court STILL wouldn’t be making abortion illegal.

    They would be allowing Wisconsin to legislate the matter.

    If we don’t like the law Wisconsin already has in place (and you have to ask yourself why the state HAS a law in place), then it can be changed.

    But the matter would be back where it belongs: in the legislatures.

    If pro-choice lobbyists really believe that 70% of Americans believe in a woman’s right to choose, they shouldn’t be afraid of having a vote on it.

    I think that abortions should be illegal. It is not right to kill an young innocent child of God. It hasent even had a chance to explore the world and already your going to take its chances of haveing a life away from it. Its not right. How would you feel if it were you who was about to be aborted? Just think about that.
