On a purely social level, society's casual attitude toward abortion is deadening our compassion and sensitivity toward the estate of marriage, the role of parents, the tenderness of childhood, and the need for the community's protection of its weaker segments.
On a legal basis, the current mandated legality of abortion is founded upon two separate lies, two different cases involving frauds upon the court: Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. The lead plaintiffs in those cases have since admitted that the facts told to the courts were complete fabrications.
Medically, the ruling in Roe v. Wade is entirely dependent upon a 1973 view of viability of an unborn baby. Our current medical knowledge now makes most of Rowe v. Wade inapplicable, if judges would actually confine themselves to the language of the ruling.
On a financial basis, we would not have a Medicaid, Medicare, or Social Security problem if we had not aborted the lives and careers of 30 million taxpayers.
On Constitutional grounds, our first organic document creating our nation says:
"We are all endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, among those are life, liberty and pursuit of happiness."
This language from our Declaration of Independence is mirrored in the 14th Amendment. If, then, we are all endowed with these rights, and they cannot be alienated, then no one has the right to unilaterally withhold the right to life from another.
On a spiritual basis, each of the major religions of the world also recognize that life is given by the Creator. Government, then, cannot take away that which was given by the Creator.
There is no rational basis upon which one can justify abortion.
