Ramblings from Georgia

1973, murder, tyranny, compliance.

Posted by apacheangel on January 23, 2012

On January 22, 1973, one of the most egregious usurpations of state criminal law by the federal judiciary was handed down in two unconstitutional Supreme Court decisions. The compliance of the state district attorneys, the acceptance and recognition of the rulings as legitimate by the states, and the compliance of the state legislatures as they changed the laws to be in compliance with the ruling, have contributed to a growing encroachment of federal oversight, a widespread ignorance and misunderstanding of the proper divisions and roles of government, and worst of all, the unchecked slaughter of over 50 million prenatal people without any hope for justice to be done to their killers.

The widespread ignorance about the role of the separate branches and divisions of government, coupled with a desire to stem the flow of blood has led to a movement to pass amendments to both state and federal constitutions to grant personhood to those living in the womb. This passion is blindly hurling us towards allowing the government to take a very dangerous power into its hands: the power to decide who is a person and who is not. As quickly as they can grant personhood they can take it away, and once we give them the power to make those decisions, they can decide to eliminate anyone from that circle they wish too; the elderly, the infirm, the mentally handicapped, or whomever they happen to dislike.

The idea behind the personhood amendments stems from the Roe v. Wade opinion; the court declared that “The appellee and certain amici argue that the fetus is a “person” within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. In support of this, they outline at length and in detail

the well-known facts of fetal development. If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.” (Roe v. Wade, IX, 50) So, pro-life activists have decided to play by the playbook that the court gave them, and declare that the fetus does in fact have personhood. Doing so only further legitimizes the unconstitutional decision. Every court has jurisdiction, and any court decision made outside the jurisdiction of that court is null. To recognize as legitimate a decision which is already legally without standing is at best ludicrous, and dangerous to a continuance of liberty.

Personhood amendments are not the answer to ending abortion.
