Murder Is Not A Right


Abortion is murder. It is. It is the taking of another life. Whether that life is attached to you or not, it is a life. Period.

What is odd to me is that the American feminist movement has taken the wide spectrum of women's rights and callously reduced it to whether women should have the right to kill their unborn babies. Real issues that affect women across the board are the right to equal pay, legal protection against sexual harassment and equal standing in healthcare (why is Viagra covered, but not birth control?). But these issues have been eclipsed by the uproar over abortion. This is why I am not, and have never been, an American feminist.

I find it incredibly irritating to listen to the debates about Roberts' nomination to the Supreme Court because they all boil down to whether he will uphold Roe v. Wade. Abortion, like gay marriage, is a great political issue because people find it very easy to pick a side. No thinking is required. Emotion guides the decision and the brain gets another day off. Dumb-dumbs across the political spectrum love to argue about black and white issues because their feeble brains are incapable of addressing real issues.

More important to me in the debate over Roberts is what side he will take in George WMD Bush v. Constitution of the U.S. This is a very important case, one that has been making its way through the legal system since 2001. The Constitution has held its own in a couple fights, but those WMD's, weapons of mass distraction, have really gained steam. Will the American right to due process survive the recently re-named "war on terror"? Is the NY random bag search the beginning of a slippery slope erasure of the concept of probable cause?

Murder is not a right and never has been. But the right of free speech, the right of free assembly, the right to counsel and the rights of due process are the foundations of America. Whether these rights survive the Bush Administration will guide America's future. These are the questions Roberts must answer.

"A true patriot does not confuse government with country.
A patriot’s loyalty is to his country, and loyalty to country
requires holding government accountable."
Paul Craig Roberts

I swear, II, you need to write a book. You crack me up!!!!

Abortion sometimes seems like the only issue Democrats want to talk about. It's the rich and middle-class white woman's Holy Grail, and it's sad to see the Roberts nomination turn on this one issue.

Short shrift is given to Robert's position on virtually everything else. My primary concerns are his views on the limits of presidential power in times of "war."

Thank you for being an intellectual independant. It's refreshing to see someone who can bring origional thought to a discussion and not just carry around their political party's talking points. I'm truly impressed.

Thank you for your recent visit to The California Conservaive (alanmanning.blogspot.com). I read your comments, and have responded. Please come back again some time and feel free to comment more. I'm always interested in everybody's ideas, so tell some people about TCC, ok?
