Examining the Abortion Issue
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots / Right Side Patriots Radio

“The idea that we’re going to make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child based on a decision by the Supreme Court, I think goes way overboard.”                - Joe Biden's words regarding protecting Roe v. Wade,and the right to abort “a child” 
Before I get into the political aspects regarding the recently leaked opinion draft about the SCOTUS most probably repealing Roe v. Wade, let me say that I, like most people of conscience, am against abortion with “late term abortion” and so-called “after-birth abortion” being, in my opinion, paramount to premeditated murder. However, unlike some, I also believe that abortion should be allowed under four instances, those being if the mother's life is jeopardized, rape, incest, or if the baby being carried is so medically compromised that it has zero chance of either being born alive or surviving after birth. 

Now here, and while some might be taken aback, I want to state that as one grounded in science fact not religious dogma...and please know that no malice or disrespect to others beliefs is intended here...I do not believe that human life begins at conception, but that it begins when what has become the fetus sees its heart starting to beat. And why do I believe this...because science fact, let alone common sense, proves that without a beating heart human life is unsustainable.

In simple medical terms, after conception what started out as a mere group of dividing cells goes through many stages, from a zygote, to a morula, to a blastocyst, while only becoming an embryo 12 days after conception. And the embryo moniker remains through week six which by then has seen a rudimentary heart having started to beat. And by week ten the fetal heart will have fully developed and begun pumping oxygenated blood through its now recognizable fetus body form, while by this time most women know or at least suspect that they're pregnant as certain bodily changes have already begun happening, whether she's willing to accept that as fact or not.

And at this point I must emphatically state that I believe abortion must not ever be used as a means of either birth control nor as collective population control. And as for the later, one needs to look at and truly understand the words of Planned Parenthood's infamous founder Margaret Sanger. A true racist who, throughout her life, showed disdain for black people, Sanger carried on a not so silent crusade against said black people. In fact, her very thought processes can clearly be seen in her December 10, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence J. Gamble where she stated, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population...”

Now back to week ten where at this point the fetus' heart is now continuously beating, and the once what was but a group of cells is now a living human being growing within its mother's body, still parasitic in nature as it has yet to reach viability, meaning it cannot exist and survive on its own. And still it truly is an individual who has a right to his or her life no matter if the mother now decides she no longer wants or ever wanted the being growing inside her. And it's at this stage in development...the stage where the beating human heart dictates that life has truly begun...where the so called Heartbeat Law comes into effect for to take a human life at this point or beyond, in my opinion, remains murder.

And why...because abortion at this point is surely being used as a last attempt means of birth control, something that should have been thought of and used before having unprotected sex. And with there being many contraceptive methods available both over the counter and by prescription, the old adage of “oops” has no place in today's modern place as a reason to have an abortion except in the four instances I've previously mentioned. Remember, acts of passion, at times, do have consequences... consequences that no innocent baby must be forced to pay with his or her own life.

But also know that I personally have no problem with the “morning after pill” for the simple reason that it must be taken within 72-hours after unprotected sex, which basically equates to pre-embryonic time...a time when no heart has formed, no heart is beating...hence one is not technically aborting life. And along with this I believe that abortion must never fall into the “selective” category, meaning if the woman carrying said baby and/or her partner does not want the gender she is in male or female with the other 60+ genders that encompass the “woke movement” being but sheer stupidity and utter nonsense...nor should a baby be aborted for treatable conditions like, but not limited to, Downs Syndrome or spinabifida for example, as these children can and do become valuable members of society much loved by their families and friends.

And as for those women who do get pregnant unintentionally and who do not meet the four criteria I previously mentioned, these women should not abort what is their mistake but put the baby they are carrying up for adoption as there are many couples who face infertility issues...couples who would gladly adopt to create their much wanted family... the family human biology itself cannot give them.

Now as for the political aspect of abortion, it is my belief that abortion should never have become a political issue in the first place let alone a federal issue, it should have stayed a state's issue if even that. Spawned of the feminist movement of the 1970's, the entire “It's My Body, My Choice” musings that led to the media's deemed “landmark decision” by the High Court, found in Roe v. Wade” that the U.S. Constitution protects a pregnant woman's “liberty” to choose to have an abortion without “excessive government restrictions.”

Yet the problem with said ruling always was and still is today, what about the life of the unborn child...what about its right to choose life instead of being disposed of like yesterday's trash. And while Joe Biden...the man who for decades as a senator was against tax funding for abortion...has raised quite a bit of ire amongst those in his own party by his recently calling the unborn what is to be aborted “a child,” as the left still wants you to believe that what will be disposed of or have its body parts sold to the highest "for profit" bidder is anything but “a child.”

Simply, this is but another instance of where the liberal left gets away with what is now, in my personal opinion, government sanctioned “murder,” for once that “child's” heart has started beating it must be afforded the same Constitutional rights and protections as the woman who willingly is taking away said child's right to life...let alone its “liberty and happiness.” Just because the then Supreme Court justices seemed to have misinterpreted the word “liberty” fifty years ago does not mean that said decision cannot be repealed today. Times change, the mood of the people change, politics itself changes, while common sense again gets lost in the shuffle of the left's political agenda game playing.

Roe v. Wade” and its right to abortion became not just the main catalyst for a decline in American culture, values, and institutions, but yet another distraction to pull us away from the Founders and Framers true intentions regarding federal constitutional law vs. the constitutionally given predominance of “states rights.” 

And in regards to abortion, upon which in passing Roe v. Wade in 1973, saw the High Court citing the 1868 Fourteenth Amendment...the very amendment which expanded protections of rights for citizens at the state level, most especially for freed slaves who were being subject to new discriminatory state laws...but it was not intended to cancel out the key Tenth Amendment...the amendment stating that, “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.” 

Simply, “states rights” do in this instance trump federal law. And why...because abortion remains a social issue and not a matter of federal policy. And yet with the High Court's 1973 decision that is exactly what happened in their basically overruling states rights by granting federal protection to those women who chose to about “the child” they carry. And this decision alone allowed the baby killing operation known as “Planned Parenthood” to perform 354,871 abortions in one year alone, while only suggesting to 2,667 women that they place their unwanted “child” up for adoption as opposed to aborting it.

Don't believe's Planned Parenthood's 2019-2020 Annual Report (2021-2022 is not out yet) where you can see these and more disturbing facts and figures for yourself. And said litany includes that Planned Parenthood” continues to receive both government grants and more than $500 million dollars in taxpayer funding every year, with much of their taxpayer dollars coming through reimbursements for Medicaid services which are jointly funded by federal and state taxpayers...meaning monies are garnered from even those of us against abortion...and also through Biden's reinstating Title X,which President Trump had rescinded, thus allowing federal funds to once again refer women for abortion.

So what are the chances of the Supreme Court reversing “Roe v. Wade” and sending abortion back to the states, especially after the recent memo leak? The chances are still good if and only if the justices don't bend to Democrat pressure, threats against their person, staged revolts by loony leftist women or men who think they can give birth, or to media-generated propaganda, for the truth remains that abortion was and always should be an issue left up to each individual state. 

Remember, in overturning “Roe v. Wade” the justices are not...I repeat not...banning abortion outright but simply removing it from federal protection, thus allowing each state to decide for themselves whether all abortions will be outlawed; if they will implement the Heartbeat Law or some variation thereof; or choose or not choose to set a given time frame and/or circumstances in which abortion will be allowed. In other words, giving back to the states the right of self-determination that our Founders and Framers laid down as law in the Constitution.

And while so many do hold different views...religiously, personally, and policy wise...than I do in regards to abortion, and believe that Roe v. Wade is
“settled law” into perpetuity, the fact remains that abortion itself does make a mockery of our Constitution for nowhere in the Constitution does it say neither in alluding nor in actual words that the killing of her unborn
child is a woman's right. And what those sitting on Supreme Court back in 1973 forgot when handing down their politically motivated and ever so misguided decision is the scientific fact that there are two lives involved in abortion...the woman's and her innocent child...a “child” who has as much right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” as she does. 

Simply, children are indeed our country's future, to take away that future takes away the very essence of who we are now and who we will be as a nation in the foreseeable future. Case closed.
