A State that does not Secure its Citizens' Right to Life is Failing to Fulfill the Entire Purpose for its Creation

Center for Self Governance (CSG) Administrative Team — February 7, 2019

   

It seems increasingly popular to use the 10th Amendment to justify carte blanche legislative authority within the States. Even some Presidential candidates have implied that because of the 10th Amendment, States can “pass whatever laws they want.” Recently, others have said that if a State wants to legalize abortion, the 10th Amendment gives the State the power to do so.

I would like to assert that some issues cannot be legislated by the States. In particular, abortion is NOT a State’s rights issue, and here’s why: We cannot fully understand the 10th Amendment until we understand of the 9th Amendment as well. The 9th Amendment says: “The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

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, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

Let's put this issue in perspective.

More Americans have been killed by those waving the flag of "Women's Health" than by all of our enemies in warfare, ever.

And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses. Nehemiah 4:14 (KJV)
