Women do not have basic constitutional rights. Unless you consider “voting rights” basic. The constitution DOES NOT cover healthcare either.
We would of had protection back in 1972, IF the Equal Rights Act was passed. However, it was defeated and largely because of a WOMAN named Phyllis Schlafly.
Phyllis Schlafly held paleoconservative social and political views, opposed liberal feminism, gay rights and abortion, and successfully campaigned against ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
How did Phyllis do this? Phyllis Schlafly was perhaps the most visible opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment. Her “Stop ERA” campaign hinged on the belief that the ERA would eliminate laws designed to protect women and led to the eventual defeat of the amendment.
When in reality the ERA would have given:
Men and women shall have equal rights throughout the United States and every place subject to its jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Meaning, Women will not be discriminated against. Nor will their body autonomy come into question. Meaning Roe V Wade would have been solidified.
Furthermore, what the SCOTUS has done was indeed a violation of the constitution. Yet not for the reasons people think. (Since many think it was a violation of women’s rights when that does not exist – constitutionally) it was a violation of CHURCH AND STATE. The first amendment. And they have violated the 14th amendment.
First Amendment- When the First Amendment was adopted in 1791, the establishment clause applied only to the federal government, prohibiting the federal government from any involvement in religion. By 1833, all states had disestablished religion from government, providing protections for religious liberty in state constitutions.
The first amendment to the US Constitution states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Meaning- Congress shall not use their religious beliefs to make a RULING Or DECISION. They took an oath to be unbiased during their “meetings”.
Which brings us to the 14th Amendment.
14, section 3 – All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Meaning men and women have a right to life. Meaning taking away abortions for legit medical reasons that may cause life threatening issues were infringed upon.
Ectopic pregnancy is not a viable pregnancy and is life threatening. The “egg” and “cells” can rupture the Fallopian tubes, causing mass hemorrhage ( internal bleeding). Ectopic pregnancy are not exemptions from the anti-abortion laws, when it should be!
Placental Abruptions happen and although SOME rare occasions it corrects itself. There are times when they don’t and again will cause internal bleeding and fetal death. If the dead “fetus” is not removed this will cause fatal infection and sepsis. This causes a woman’s DEATH. Again infringing upon the right to life.
14th amendment “oath”. The oaths taking before settling into office is for said Senator, President and SCOTUS to uphold the constitution fully without biases. This was infringed upon. They lied under oath.
Because religious views played a big role in their decisions. 🖕🏽This is why there is separation between church and freaking state.
Life does not begin at conception. Cells begin at conception. Implantation begins, life does not. Therefore these antiabortionists are basically saying CANCER CELLS have A RIGHT TO LIFE. They are saying mens sperm have a right to life. Even though all men jerk off into a sock and abort that seed.
Let me see you prolife jerks outlaw Masturbation. I also want to see you adopt children from the orphanage’s. You are not prolife you are probirth. Because once that kid is born, there is NO affordable healthcare, daycare or preschool.
I am prochoice. The freedom to choose. The freedom to practice your religion without shoving it down someone else’s throat. The freedom to protest, the freedom to form an opinion, to choose a job, to go to the college you want or to not go.
