Our natural rights adhere to us because of who and what we are, not because of our location. We are, each of us, made in the image and likeness of God. (See Genesis 1:26). Our value derives from that fact, from that reality, not from where we might happen to be today.
When God said, "You shall not murder," He meant that you shall not murder anyone, obviously. When He said, "You shall not steal," He meant that you shall not steal from anyone, obviously. These are the simple moral premises of decent, just human government. I have a right, granted by God, not to be murdered or stolen from. And you have an equal right not to be murdered or stolen from. It's simple. This is American Civics 101.
He never said, "You shall not murder or steal, unless your victim is over there rather than over here." No. Everyone has an intrinsic God-given, unalienable right to not be murdered or stolen from, no matter where they are. These rights precede and supersede all manmade laws and constitutions. They apply to all human beings, all persons, everywhere, in all ages. We are ALL supposed to be protected by our laws, not by our location.
These natural law principles were the very foundation stones of the American republic.
In Dobbs v. Jackson, "Justice" Samuel Alito rightly points out the arbitrary nature of Roe v. Wade, and how foolish it was for the Blackmun court to determine whether a child would be protected based on their location in relation to a hospital. But, then, hypocritically, he and his colleagues ruled that innocent babies would henceforth be protected based SOLELY on their location, i.e., what state they happen to be in today. And, very poor protection that is, in light of the fact that any murder-minded mother can still simply change her location in order to slaughter her offspring, at any time, under the color of "law."
The phrase "overturning Roe" is utterly meaningless when any and all unborn children can still be murdered in our country, as long as they are murdered in the government-approved place.
It's not supposed to be that way in America. Our republic was founded and established on the principle that government - all government, at all levels - exists to provide equal protection for the God-given, unalienable, individual right to life.
Our Constitution's ultimate stated purpose is "to secure the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity."
And that Constitution, which every officer of government in this country is required to swear an oath to support and defend, absolutely requires equal protection under the law for every innocent person, in every state. It's not optional. It's not "up to the states to decide." Please, America, stop pretending that it is. And, stop doing the wicked things that these foolish, hypocritical judges tell you to do.
