I thought I’d take a moment today and share what the 14th Amendment actually says. This way you are informed.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
14th Amendment sec. 1
The 14th Amendment guarantees life, liberty and property. It does not guarantee or give the right to murder, which is technically what abortion is. It gives each state the right to make laws, within certain perimeters. Life is protected.
It’s that simple. They’re interpreting the Constitution. It’s not taking anybody’s rights away. It’s not giving rights to anybody. First of all, God does that. But that said, there’s 50 states for a reason. We’re not a parliamentary system like Canada, or France. We have 50 states for a reason, 50 legislatures for a reason, so that decisions can be made by the people in these states.
Nowhere does it state that abortion (murder) is a federal right. Life, liberty and property are protected under the amendment. States, and its citizens, have sole authority to make or reject these kind of laws….as I stated in a previous post. The federal government’s only job is to protect life.
I personally don’t want the federal government to have that kind of power. If they have the power to say you can have an abortion…they can also determine other things. For example, they could force you to get vaccinated against your will. You might say, but they do “force” vaccinations on our children. We are wrong to think that way. We do have religious exemptions. As a parent we can say no, it’s our right to protect our child if we feel it is wrong. The school system might deny a public education, but there are other options. Again, that’s at state level and you can argue that at state level we still have options. Nowhere in the US Constitution/Bill of Rights can the government force anything on you. It is our protection from a government gone tyrannical. Our founding fathers designed our government this say on purpose, with separation of powers. They didn’t want the government, at any level, to have that much power.
As things are right now, there is a power grab going on, has been for a while. Which is why we’re in so much turmoil.
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
