16 Sep Abortion Advocates: “Pile on the Laws!”
by Melissa Anderson
We are a government formed to legislate the collective moral conscienceness into laws to govern the whole. By the People, For the People. We are all the government. Our opinions are not only relevant, they are required. Our moral voices are not only relevant, they are required. This is especially true when a small faction with loud voices demand government support of and funding for abortion and tell the People to back away.
Pro-abortion advocates ask for the government (that’s us) to allow their abortions. They ask for the government (that’s us) to pass laws to fund their abortions. They ask for the government (that’s us) to pass laws to give federal monies to abortion providers. Then pro-abortion activists have the audacity to say that our opinions don’t matter, our morals are irrelevant and our consciences unnecessary. They ask, beg, for the government to make laws, legislate, fund, approve, then they have the gall to say “keep your laws off my body.”
When people say “keep your laws off my body,” what they really mean is “pile on the laws.”
– Minors cannot consent to dental work. Keep your laws off my body? No. Legislate that in this area and this area only, the minor who could not consent to having her teeth cleaned can now consent to a surgical procedure. “Pile the laws onto my body.”
– The First Amendment protects speech and the free exercise of religion. It is broad in meaning and in scope. Keep your laws off my body? No. Instead, legislate that people cannot practice their right to free speech with a certain distance from an abortion clinic. A pure Constitutional right, political speech, has been whittled away in the making of laws to protect abortion. “Pile the laws onto my body.”
– Surgical procedures must be performed in hospitals. Except for abortion. This surgical procedure is performed in a non-hospital clinic. Pile on the laws, because only the law allows women to enter a clinic, usually without an actual doctor, and have a surgery performed.
Abortion laws do not create new freedoms in the law. They restrict the freedom of others already attained. Abortion NEEDS the protection of our laws to survive. Think about it: What other “purely medical procedure” as they call it needs the legislation that abortion businesses need? Not a single one.
Abortion enjoys liberties because a small faction of The People have bought into the fallacies of the Abortion movement while the majority have been told that our voices don’t matter, our religion is unwanted and our morality, unjustified. But in the end, We are the People. We have no obligation to legislate, fund, agree to, or ignore anything that requires the protection of the laws to continue. Like slavery, abortion will exist for only so long as We the People are afraid to legislate our own morality, and for only so long as we agree to “pile on the laws.”
