REALLY? I WONDER IF THIS LEGAL RIGHT AND WARPED MENTALITY WILL BE CHALLENGED A HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW?
Many people during slavery thought it was fine to have it especially in the south where its economy was built upon slavery and benefited so many on a personal level--forget those who suffered under slavery, the owners benefited and they had a legal right to own! And given slavery's legality, it was their personal decision to have slaves and should not then be a legal debate as it concerns their personal choice to take advantage of the law that allowed slavery.
I could never figure out how good people in the segregated south, good people that I knew, wanted the segregated south to remain, separate but equal. Of course separate but equal wasn't! But it was the law and they abided, because someone was personally benefiting from this legalized institution in the south.
Since Roe V. Wade, abortion, like segregation and slavery before it, is legal and remains legal today--abortion the killing, the murder of innocent human life, homicide, is legal in the USA. Who bats an eye apart from fanatical pro-life Christians? Even the main stream media applauds a mother's right to kill her child, to commit infanticide, homicide, murder, all in the name of her personal needs discussed with her nurse or doctor. It is a personal decision not a legal debate after all!
And when pro-life Christians protest in front of an abortion clinic that its personnel murders innocent human life, which side does the press take and most of liberal America? The child's side, the one being murdered, or the murdering abortionists and the mother's right to choose to make this decision?
How is it that our progressive American culture today accepts abortion as evil as it is and wants to remove Robert E. Lee's statues from parks throughout the south because he supported the legality of slavery based upon states' rights and the fact that it was legal in the south? Logically, where is the difference and why do we uphold abortion clinics whose economy profits off of the murder of babies?
And as I recall both Hilary Clinton and President Barack Obama, our first mixed raced president, were in favor of partial birth abortion. Should they have statues and monument erected in their honor? And if there are statues and monuments already built in their honor, should not these be removed now and not wait for a future recognition of the great evil of abortion and the murders of millions and millions of babies since 1973?
