Another in a long line of loving, but firm, notes, delivered over the course of many years, to those abolitionists who continue to wrongly claim that abortion is legal in America.
When you cede legality to abortion:
1. You are admitting that you don't really know much about what law is, and how our American constitutional form of republican self-government, premised in the moral law, is supposed to work, or,
2. You are lazy and don't care how badly your rhetorical sloppiness harms the cause of stopping the abortion holocaust in America, or,
3. You are, in reality, on the side of the abortionists and the regulationists in agreeing that the most heinous, lawless, illegal, illicit, illegitimate, and unconstitutional acts can be made "legal" just because you, or they, or a court, or a legislature, or somebody, says so.
I know this going to offend some, but it must be said:
If you insist on continuing to cede legality to abortion, even after you've been repeatedly, patiently, lovingly, corrected, (some of you repeatedly over the course of years,) you despise your brother. You are arrogant and unteachable. And, therefore, you are a danger to the cause and not to be trusted, no matter the number and volume of your proclamations, or how large the crowd of your followers.
"When human laws contradict or discountenance the means, which are necessary to preserve the essential rights of any society, they defeat the proper end of all laws, and so become null and void."
-- Alexander Hamilton
"[A] law repugnant to the Constitution is void, and [...] courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument."
-- Chief Justice John Marshall, summation, Marbury v. Madison, 1803
Here is the supreme law in America. Any statute or court opinion to the contrary is null and void. In other words, it must be considered not to exist:
"No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law." – The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution
"No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." – The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution
Abortion is not legal anywhere in America. Never has been, and never can be. Get it through your thick skulls, Christians.
