Personally, if I were a politician when it came to guns and abortions, I would simply go with the Constitution...wait a minute, we ARE supposed to go with the Constitution. Silly me!

The constitution says people can have guns. It says nothing about abortions.

The constitution says people can have guns. It says nothing about abortions.


The Constitution, in the Ninth Amendment, protects certain unenumerated rights, including the right of privacy. "Privacy" includes the right of people to make their own medical decisions without having the government make those decisions for them. The right to decide whether to gestate or terminate a pregnancy is one of those mmedical decisions. Or do you think the government should have the right to determine how many pregnancies a woman should be fored to gestate? The right to make that decision belongs to the woman in consultation with those she deems to be appropriate advisors, not to the government.

That right ends when you take the people's money or it involves another human life.

bBut nice try.

Funny how the 9th and 10th amendments, and really all other amendments, apply when it comes something the left cares about, but they go away when is not something they care about.
