A man’s home is his castle. “A proverbial expression that illustrates the principle of individual privacy, which is fundamental to the American system of government.”
What I do in my home is my own private business. I can smoke weed, watch porn, wear pantyhose, worship Satan, drink absinthe and engage in any sexual practice I desire.
This is fundamental to the American system of government.
By the same token, whatever a woman chooses to do with her own body is her own private business, and hers alone. It is not up to her neighbor, church, government, or any other entity to decide for her, no matter what their motivation is.
I am a strong advocate of democracy and women’s rights, and I am horrified and angry at the prospect of the Roe v. Wade ruling reversal.
This historical 1973 decision clearly stated that “A person may choose to have an abortion until a fetus becomes viable, based on the right to privacy contained in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
I have already seen it, and I hope that there will be massive demonstrations all over the country to stop what clearly goes against the will of the American people.
According to Forbes magazine (updated May 3, 2022) “Gallup polls show Americans’ support for abortion in all or most cases at 80% in May 2021, only slightly higher than in 1975 (76%), and the Pew Research Center finds 59% of adults believe abortion should be legal, compared to 60% in 1995—though there has been fluctuation, with support dropping to a low of 47% in 2009.”
No matter what the nosy do-gooders will dictate, abortions won’t stop. If banned, they will become more dangerous and will primarily affect people who need it most, juveniles and people of modest means.
America is becoming an increasingly oppressive society and if we are not careful, we will end up in an autocratic state where obscene Special Military Operations will be forced on people and lauded as patriotic deeds.
The Supreme Court’s impending, politically motivated decision, must be fought on all fronts and not be allowed to become the law of the land.
