For years I have asked the question “How can taking the life of an innocent human being be Constitutional?”
— the target of the abortion is alive, as a distinct entity, from conception and has never been anything but alive.
— the target of the abortion is a human being and has never been anything else. He or she has never been a worm, a bird, a cabbage, a monkey, a fish or any other life form other than a human being.
— the target of the abortion, never having entered into the human society, is as innocent as can be imagined.
— the abortion does indeed take this life.
— this life has been taken without “due process of law” as required by the US Constitution.
— the presumption of innocence, Constitutionally granted in criminal cases, is denied to the object of abortion.
— legal representation is denied to the object of abortion as is the right to confront the accuser.
— presentation of legal charges and a jury trial of peers is denied to the object of abortion.
Again I ask “How can the taking the life of an innocent human being be Constitutional?”
