How Dobbs and Roe are identical
If you thought they were different, like most folks, you've been fooled
If you ask most Americans the main thing that Roe v. Wade did half a century ago, their reply will be that “it legalized abortion.”
Sorry. Wrong answer. The main thing that Roe did was to dehumanize the unborn child and deprive them of their explicit, imperative equal protection rights under the provisions of the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments, in every state in the Union.
Courts have no authority to “legalize” anything. Constitutionally, courts cannot make laws. And, according to our founders, laws, and the rulings of courts in individual cases, are to be considered legally null and void anyway if they violate the moral law or the Constitution, which abortion most certainly does. (See: The Destructive Fallacy of Judicial Supremacy.)
"When human laws contradict or discountenance the means, which are necessary to preserve the essential rights of any society, they defeat the proper end of all laws, and so become null and void."
"[A] law repugnant to the Constitution is void, and [...] courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument."
-- Chief Justice John Marshall, Marbury v. Madison, 1803
Don’t forget, we’re talking about a morally-based Constitution which states as its ultimate purpose the securing of “the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity.” It couldn’t be any clearer.
If you ask most Americans the main thing that Dobbs v. Jackson did last year, their reply will be that it “overturned Roe.”
Again, a *LOUD BUZZER*.
Sorry. Wrong answer. The main thing that Dobbs did was to dehumanize the unborn child and deprive them of their explicit, imperative equal protection rights under the provisions of the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments, in every state in the Union.
You’ll notice that, in its most important aspect, Dobbs did the exact same bloody thing that was done by the Blackmun Supreme Court in Roe.
The current Dobbs court completely abandoned posterity in its immoral, unconstitutional ruling. Not only that, it abandoned the very cornerstone principle contained our national charter, the Declaration of Independence, that our rights, starting with the supreme human right, the right to life, are God-given, and therefore unalienable.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are CREATED EQUAL, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men."
The Declaration of Independence
Clearly, the natural law is the premise of the American republic. And this court threw away that premise, which is the basis of our claim to liberty as a people.
This court made it quite clear that, in gross violation of their own oaths, they believe that the arbitrary decisions of a democratic majority can overrule—can alienate—the most sacred, essential individual human right.
And what is the predictable result? A year after Dobbs, any child conceived in America, or in any state within the United States, can still be murdered under the color of “law.” Every single child can still be murdered, as long as that child is murdered in the proper location, and by some completely arbitrary set of lawless “pro-life” rules.
And so, the evil fruit of both Roe and Dobbs are exactly the same.
Which, it practical terms, means that this bloody genocide continues, unabated.
