A Grim Milestone...

The 34th anniversary of Roe vs Wade.
I'm sure there are many celebrations going on.

47,282,923 Victims of Civil-Rights Violations (so far).

Here is an interesting perspective that I cotton to myself -

From the Cedars Cultural and Educational Foundation:

Abortion, Declaration of Independence and the Constitution

Since God, the Benefactor of our civil rights, declares that a child is a person "endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights...", we need examine which constitutional
rights are violated when a child is aborted.

A. Declaration of Independence: A child is "...endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...". Thus abortion
denies the child this most basic of their God-given rights.

B. 6th Amendment in essence states that "...the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public be confronted with the witnesses against him, to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor..."
Abortion imposes the penalty for a capital crime upon an unborn child. The child is brutally executed without charge and without the protections of this amendment.

C. 8th Amendment: This guarantees protection against "...cruel and unusual punishments..."
First, the child is not guilty of anything worthy of punishment. Secondly, the unwarranted punishment of abortion is, by it's nature "cruel and unusual".
Nowhere in America is the death penalty imposed by dismemberment in tearing the person apart until dead. Nowhere in America is the death penalty imposed which burns a person to death.
Abortion is an execution worse than that given to mass murderers. Many convicted murderers are permitted to live. Not so with an unborn child who’s guilty being alive.

D. 14 Amendment
This amendment guarantees the protection of due process.
"...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 any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
To destroy an unborn child is a clear denial of their right to "due process" and,contrary to the provisions of this amendment abortion is a denial of the unborn child's right
to "...equal protection of the laws." which includes the protection of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.", the core of our national and individual existence.
It's time for another civil-rights movement...
