Anti-abortion proponents either don’t get it, or they just love to see what they can get away with by chipping away at a fundamental liberty, new law by new law. Their ultimate goal, of course, is to make every abortion a crime, regardless of the circumstances.
Some religious oriented politicians would even punish unintended miscarriages resulting from “bad” behavior. If God intended it, well, that’s OK, they reason, but if a pregnant woman intends it; they’re going to find some way to make that a felony.
Only if she prays to God for a miscarriage and God answers her prayer with a spontaneous miscarriage, I suppose, should she avoid the wrath of the criminal law, if anti-abortionists have their way. They want the law to decree what they think God wants. Their position is grounded entirely upon religious ideology.
"We are a multicultural society now and cultures are bringing their traditions to America that really defy the values of America, including cultures that value males over females," declared one of the anti-abortion lawmakers, a fervent “culture collective” absolutist.
And, just how, you might ask, will the Arizona State Pregnant Police find out the reason in a pregnant woman’s mind to seek an abortion? That’s right; the law actually purports to require every woman to state publicly her reason. The state can bring criminal proceedings to force her to talk. The state can convene a full blown grand jury investigation.
Thus, with the stroke of a state governor’s pen, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the
is rendered null and void in the State of United States of America when it comes to the authorities probing the mind and body of innocent pregnant women. The state can investigate, intimidate, and dominate vulnerable human beings – nothing new there. Arizona
If the anti-liberty folks can’t have their way in wiping out the liberty right completely, and immediately, they’re perfectly content to pass one unconstitutional law after another in a grand effort to put their metaphorical foot squarely inside the American cultural door.
Perhaps one day not so far off, they’ll find a majority of religious oriented judges on the SCOTUS who essentially believe as they do. Maybe someday the bible will trump the United States Constitution.
That will be a sad day in
