Democrats and the 14th Amendment

Left v Right 14th amendment

Democrat presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is a true Democrat.  When asked about his position on abortion, he said:

“I will fight as strong as I can to defend a woman’s right to choose. I believe that it is an outrage that Republicans who tell us how much they hate the government now want to tell every American — every American woman what she can and cannot do with her body. And I do agree with the Secretary. I don’t believe there’s any constitutional protection for the unborn.”

“I think that decision ultimately has got to be made by the woman. I have a 100 percent pro-choice voting record throughout my career. That decision must be made by the woman, must be made by her family and her physician, not by the federal government, not by the state government.”

Ted Cruz: Congress needs to protect the unborn

Last December, Princeton Professor Robert George interviewed Senator Ted Cruz, who argued that unborn babies are PERSONS within the meaning of the 14th Amendment, ERGO they have a right to life under the nation’s founding document.  Moreover, the 5th section of the 14th Amendment calls specifically on Congress to enforce this in the law.


Below is a partial transcript of the section of the interview that begins at 9:34.  This whole interview is well worth your time.  IMHO, there is no other Republican presidential candidate that deserves my vote.


   GEORGE: Ted, the Fourteenth Amendment says that no state shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Now, the amendment in its fifth section includes a provision that delegates to the Congress the power, and I quote, to enforce by appropriate legislation the provisions of this article.

CRUZ: Yep.

GEORGE: Now, do you believe that unborn babies are persons within the meaning of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, and if so will you call on Congress to use its authority under the Fourteenth Amendment, pursuant to Section 5, to protect the unborn? Or do you take the view, as some do, that we can’t do that until Roe v. Wade is overturned, either by the court itself or by constitutional amendment? Where do you stand on that?

CRUZ: Listen, absolutely yes. I think the first obligation of everyone in public office is to protect life. Life is foundational. In fact, as you look at the Declaration, that ordering of unalienable rights, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I think it’s a very deliberate ordering. Without life there is no liberty, and without liberty there is no pursuit of happiness. That each builds upon the other, and I very much agree with the Pope’s longstanding, and prior popes before him, longstanding call to protect every human life from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death.

GEORGE: And we can do that with congressional action without waiting for Roe v. Wade being overturned?

CRUZ:  Absolutely yes.

Unborn PERSONS?!

On April 3, 2016, Hillary Clinton made the absolutely extraordinary statement that “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.”

It’s not extraordinary that she thinks the unborn can be slaughtered with impunity.  That’s just the Democrat Party Line.

What’s extraordinary is that she referred to the unborn as PERSONS.

The entire abortion argument is predicated on the idea that fetuses are PROPERTY, NOT PERSONS.

Until Roe v. Wade, the civil rights movement consisted entirely of shifting segments of humans from the category of PROPERTY (women, slaves, criminals, employees) to the category of PERSONS (living, human beings with equal rights under the law).

Abortion is the sole, shameful example of our nation moving a segment of our population in the other direction.

It should terrify us that a major political figure and presidential wannabe has stated publicly that the unborn are, in fact, PERSONS who she believes have no right to protection under our laws.

The nation’s founders believed that rights are granted equally by God to all His human children.

Progressives believe that rights are the property of the elite to give or withhold as they see fit.

This is the basis for their support for abortion and for their attacks on the religious freedoms of Bible-believing Christians and Jews.

It’s a very short step from “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights” to “[Fill in the blank] doesn’t have constitutional rights.

Literal vs. Figurative

This is a little side trip into some examples of people who take literal way too seriously. To those of us who are sticklers for grammar and punctuation (Bluebird and myself, in particular), this is a little relief from the angst of bearing witness to lesser individuals’ feeble attempts at communicating properly. Hope you get a few smiles before todays descent into inanity.
