Why Abortion is Unconstitutional

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. . .”

These words penned by our founding fathers in the declaration of independence lay the basis for the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They are quoted many times by human rights activists in their attempts to legalize an ever broadening array of behaviors that are questionable at best. However, there is one behavior that these words, backed by good scientific research, absolutely forbid. That behavior is the act of aborting a human fetus.

Some of you reading this are already scoffing, but I will prove to you that what I am asserting is absolutely true and beyond any reasonable reproach.

Abortion rights activists say a lot of things that sound reasonable before you really look into them. “My body my business” is one of the most famous. Let’s say for a minute that I agree with this statement wholeheartedly and have no argument against it at all. There is still one problem. Genetic research has shown beyond all doubt that a human fetus is in fact not part of the mother’s body at all. To begin with, the fetus has a distinct genetic code that is separate from the mother’s, though part of it is derived from hers. This difference is so important that the placenta acts as a barrier against the mother’s immune system to prevent her own body from killing the fetus as if it were a bacterial infection. That’s right. The mother’s own body recognizes that the fetus is not part of her body. So, different genetic code, mother’s body wants to reject it, the fetus is therefore NOT her body at all, but an entirely different one.

Okay then, is the fetus in fact human? Abortion rights activists argue that the fetus is not human until it is born. Other than the fact that this is obviously a ridiculous statement, and the fact that some judges bought it is a magnificent failure in the legal system, there is also scientific evidence to negate this argument as well. Once again, genetics is the hero. Genetic research has shown that the DNA of the fetus is distinctly human from the moment of conception. DNA testing is legal proof of identity in court, and is used in all manner of cases from rape and murder to paternity. It establishes species and identity with irreproachable legality. This precedent therefore makes a human fetus legally human as well as genetically human. The unborn fetus is human.

Finally, is the fetus actually alive? Even this is also an obvious “yes” there are those, specifically abortion rights activists and abortion clinic workers of all kinds, who would argue otherwise. Let’s define a living cell the way research scientists do. A living cell is any cell which actively engages the processes of life. The basic processes are consumption and use of energy, creation and expulsion of waste, and reproduction. A living organism is an organism comprised of living cells. Given this definition, a human fetus is alive from the moment of conception, not birth. Stimulation research further backs this up. It has been demonstrated beyond all reasonable doubt that an unborn fetus reacts to sound and touch in the same way a birthed baby does. It has even been shown that a fetus can feel physical pain. This research not only shows physical life, but mental awareness as well. The fetus is alive.

So, I have established that a human fetus in fact a living human being. Now, in America all living human beings have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For a mother to abort this living human being, to kill it, is to deny this person the right to life specifically, but also the right to any liberty that human could have had, and all happiness that human could have pursued. To deny these basic rights to any human person in America is unconstitutional. Human rights activists have been saying this for years to try to put an end to the death penalty. But these same hypocrites claim it is a mother’s right to deny these rights to her unborn baby.

It is the job of the U.S. courts to uphold the constitution, and in the arena of abortion they have failed utterly. These babies are proven to be living human beings separate from their mothers, and that gives them the same basic rights as the rest of us. To deny them these rights is a crime, and if aborting the baby is the way it happens the crime is murder.

On a final note, there is solid legal precedence to support all of these assertions in court. I have already mentioned how DNA evidence is used to establish individual human identity, and to establish species identity in the courts. This gives precedence to declare an unborn fetus to be a human being that is separate, though attached to the mother. There is also a new law that has been upheld as constitutional that’s sets a legal precedence for fetal rights. The Laci Peterson law states that anyone who kills a pregnant woman is also guilty of killing the unborn baby. This constitutionally upheld law sets a legal precedence for declaring a human fetus to be a living human being. The science and the legal precedence that have been set lay a firm undeniable foundation for the courts to recognize what pro-lifers have known all along. That an unborn baby is just as alive, and just as human as you or I, and thereby protected by the same rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that our founding fathers established as the foundation of our own government.
