Drafted in 2011, this important document is an unequivocal demand by We the People that those who take the constitutional oath of office keep it, and provide Equal Protection for Posterity.
“No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law.” — The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

The Destructive Fallacy of Judicial Supremacy

Americans often think they can do nothing about abortion, in the belief that "Roe v. Wade is the law of the land." This presumption is based on a misunderstanding of the judiciary's role in our constitutional republic. Much of that misunderstanding stems from a revisionist reading of the 1803 case Marbury v.

Regarding Dobbs v. Jackson:
The author of Roe v. Wade, Harry Blackmun, understood the contest was between a woman's right and a child's right.
"The appellee and certain amici argue that the fetus is a 'person' within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. ... 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." (Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Roe v. Wade, 1973)
To truly overrule Roe v. Wade, therefore, the Court would have to uphold the child's right to life. Dobbs fails to do so. By saying the child's fate should be decided by the "democratic process," Dobbs perpetuates the error of Roe.

Abortion has a parallel with American slavery: both contradict the principles of the Declaration of Independence and invite the wrath of a just God.
Frederick Douglass warned that once American principles are abandoned, "all is lost."
But there is hope: the end of slavery proves that we can and must work to uproot injustice and finally bring about equal protection for all—without delay.
