Re: Roe vs. Wade
Roe vs. Wade was written by Harry Blackmun, Richard Nixon’s third nominee for the seat after two previous nominees had been turned down by the Senate. That’s like being the third choice for a prom date.
The decision itself appalled many, including one Harvard law professor who favored legalized abortion. I read the decision once. Although I am not a trained lawyer, I can read English and apply logic & I thought it was vacuous.
Blackmun et al, found a right to privacy in The Constitution which is not mentioned at all and which had never been noticed before. Since it is not a right that is mentioned, by the Ninth & Tenth Amendments, it’s logical that it would be up to the people and the states to squabble over it.
Even since Roe vs. Wade, The Supreme Court of Rhode Island has concluded that no right to privacy exists in the state, citing that it has invited the legislature to enact a right to privacy but it has not done so.
Which raises a lot of questions. If there is a right to privacy in the Constitution which is the supreme law of this nation then why is it necessary for any state to enact a right to privacy? Conversely, if a state needs a law to confirm a right to privacy then why doesn’t the federal government need one?
I think these are valid questions to address but I don’t expect any answers anytime soon.

One of the lesser known circumstances behind Roe v. Wade is that Norma McCorvey, the litigant, had two female lawyers to represent her. They claimed that Norma had been gang raped. This was a lie. She became pregnant by her boyfriend who promptly ditched her. The lawyers believed she would gain the sympathy of the court by claiming she'd been gang raped. 62 million unborn children killed and God only knows how many grieving mother's and it was all predicated on a lie. All real Truth comes from God. A lie is a denial of truth therefore a lie is also a denial of God.
Norma, later in life, acknowledged and confessed her sins and became a Christian before she died.
