Abortion and the Courts

This is some fine thinking here from Michael Fragoso on why it is a mistake to say, as some do, that "because Republican judges helped to give us Roe v. Wade, it doesn't really make a difference which party is in charge of nominating and confirming judges." :

A longstanding complaint from certain pro-lifers is that the history of abortion jurisprudence is a history of Republican appointees liberalizing abortion laws and keeping the abortion license unrestricted. It is a complaint that soi dissant pro-lifers echo to discredit Republicans not infrequently, and one that has occasional currency among some broader segments of the conservative movement.

The Roe v. Wade Court never assumed that because our founding principles inscribed in The Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal (created equal, not born equal) and endowed by their Creator (not the government)with certain unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" sovereign personhood was among the endowed unalienable rights, so Amendment 9 - Construction of Constitution. Ratified 12/15/1791says:
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
Roe v. Wade denied and disparaged the sovereign personhood of the newly begotten human being in spite of the self-evident truths. Roe denied the father the ownership of his own seed, his living seed, his fatherhood. Roe, emasculated every human male in our nation. Roe denied the rational immortal soul of the human being created. Roe redefined the human being, the sovereignty of the human person and the freedom of our founding principles. Does it matter who enshrined all this criminality in our law? I am angry and ashamed.
