Mississippi Asks Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade
December 16, 2021
In a lawsuit over a Mississippi anti-abortion law, Mississippi has asked the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Mississippi’s legal arguments are reasonable and logical. Roe v. Wade found that there is a Constitutional right to have an abortion. However, the Constitution mentions no such right. It just simply is not there. Such a right cannot even be sensibly inferred from the Constitution; it has no support in the intent of the Constitution, nor in its history or traditions. In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court simply made a policy decision that an abortion right was a good idea. Mississippi argues that such a decision should be left up to the states and people through the democratic process.
An unborn child is a human being with the right to life. At 5-6 weeks old, an unborn child’s heart starts beating. At about 8 weeks, he or she starts to move in the womb. All basic physiological functions are present at 9 weeks. At about 10 weeks, hair, fingernails, and toenails begin to form, and vital organs start to function. At 11 weeks, the diaphragm is developing, and the unborn child may even hiccup. At 12 weeks, the child can open and close fingers and sense stimulation from outside the womb.
How can we even think to kill such a precious little child?
