What is the draft opinion about the landmark US abortion decision Roe v. Wade and how did we find out about it?
So this draft judgement is how the Supreme Court views the American Constitution in that they say ‘legal approach which holds that laws, including the constitution, should be applied as they were understood when first passed. Alito argues over several pages that abortion was not a right accepted or protected in the US for much of the nation’s history before 1973.’
However, this Constitution was implemented in the late 1700s and most of the World has progressed much since then, with a few exceptions, Afghanistan for one and it appears the US for another.
Medical processes since then are no way what they were in the late 1700s, but in general no one is wishing to proceed as they were in the late 1700s. So some, especially those with Republican views are picking and choosing which they still wish to abide by and those they don’t and other, which they tend to mistranslate.
Human Rights have progressed so, much in many countries, while in some have regressed, Afghanistan being a prime example, especially with regards to women. So, in effect, if Roe v Wade is overturned so some women’s rights will be as they were in the late 1700s rather than the 21st century, the US will, in some respects be similar to Afghanistan. Thereby, Republican law having some similar aspects to Taliban law, this really what Republicans wish for.
Abortion is not the only contentious issue for there is also the US Gun Laws. If we abide as in the possible overthrow of Roe v Wade that the ruling should follow the Constitution as it was in the late 1700s. It would mean the armaments should be similar to those of the late 1700s and not the supreme weapons of the 21st century, such as AK-47s.
In the late 1700s civilian militias were formed as it was not sure if the national forces could be trusted, especially in some areas of the US, but, in reality can that be said today.
It would appear now that many have ‘arms’ without any involvement in any militias, surely that is against the Constitution, unless it is for hunting and home defense, but not while within any outside communities as surely that is why there are Police forces, which in many instances there were not in the late 1700s, except for perhaps an untrained Sheriff and some deputies.
Americans appear to pick and choose what they live by and in many instances infringe on many Human Rights of others.
