The Justices of the Supreme Court made their decision not to decide, by passing the legality of abortion on to each state.
The next step, of course, is to have protestors on both sides of the decision gather to share their distain or happiness over the decision.
The U.S. has enshrined in its Constitution freedoms of speech and peaceable assembly, as well as redress of grievances to the government. Therefore, protesting without destroying property as done in the Summer of 2020 all across America, is a citizen’s right. This right is not extended to the Justices’ homes endangering them and their families, but unfortunately, many people who are breaking the laws daily don’t have any consequences.
Why do people feel the need to destroy building, cars, businesses, and sometimes kill people, when they don’t agree with certain decisions and political outcomes? Why do they revert to animalistic behavior? I don’t have the answer, but for my own safety I stay away from crowds of protestors.
Now is the time to get involved in your local government to be part of the decision-making process for abortion laws as well as other laws that affect one’s life.
Whether you are for or against the decision of abortion, I found it interesting to look up some of the statistics from HeartResearchFunding.org.
- Fewer than 1% of all abortions take place because there has been rape or incest involved to create the pregnancy.
- There have been roughly 60 million abortions since the case was decided in 1973.
- 96.50% of all abortions are therefore performed for social or economic reasons.
If you were reading this hoping that I would share my opinion on the subject of abortion, sorry to disappoint you! I’ll keep this one to myself but, please feel free to voice your thoughts anytime.
