When the Government Plays God: The Slippery Slope from Abortions to Executions

The Still left would suggest that unborn infants do not have constitutional rights as well as the only right that issues is a woman’s right to privacy in choosing whether or not in order to abort a pregnancy.

Abortion upon demand is the ultimate State tyranny ; the State basically declares that certain classes associated with human beings are not persons, and therefore not entitled to the protection of the law. The State defends the ‘ right’ associated with some people to kill others, just as the courts safeguarded the ‘ property rights’ of slave masters within their slaves. ” — Ron Paul

The government  wants   to play god.

It wants the ability to decide who lives or even dies and whose rights are worthy of protection.

Delve beneath the rhetoric and spin that have turned abortion into a politicized, polarized and propagandized  frontline in the culture wars , and you will find a greater menace at work.

Abortion may be front and center in the power struggle between Left and the Right over who has the right to decide— the government or the individual— when it comes to bodily autonomy, the right in order to privacy, sexual freedom, the particular rights of the unborn, and property interests in your body, but there’s so much more going on here.

The particular Left would suggest that  unborn babies do not have constitutional rights   and the only right that issues is a woman’s right to privacy in choosing whether or not to abort a pregnancy. The appropriate, while fixated on preserving the lives of unborn babies, seems less concerned about what happens to those lives from birth to death.

What few seem willing to address is that in the 30 years since the U. S. Supreme Court issued the landmark ruling in  Roe v. Wade , the government is at a believe that it not only has the strength to determine who is deserving of constitutional rights in the eyes from the law but it also has the power to deny those legal rights to an American citizen.

This is how the illigal baby killing debate— a politicized tug-of-war over when an unborn kid is considered a human being with rights— plays into the police state’s hands by laying the particular groundwork for discussions about who else may or may not be worth rights.

Even if (as a  leaked out draft opinion   in the case of  Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Wellness Organization  suggests) the Supreme Court overturns its  earlier rulings   recognizing abortion like a constitutional right under the 14th Amendment, that will not resolve the bigger problem that plagues us today: namely, that all along the spectrum of life— in the unborn child to the aged— the government continues to play fast and loose with the life of the citizenry.

Take a good, hard consider the many ways in which Americans are now being denied their rights beneath the Constitution.

American families who have their canines shot, their homes removed and their children terrorized or, worse,   slain by errant SWAT team raids   in the center of the night are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Disabled people who are being strip searched, handcuffed, arrested   plus “ diagnosed” by police as dangerous or mentally unstable merely because they stutter and walk unevenly are being denied their rights beneath the Constitution.

School-aged children as young as 4-years-old who are leg shackled, handcuffed plus strip searched for  violating school zero threshold policies by chewing the Pop Tart into the shape of a gun   plus playing an imaginary video game of cops and criminals, or engaging in childish behavior such as crying or jumping are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Unarmed citizens that are tasered or shot simply by police   to get daring to hesitate, stutter, move a muscle, flee or even disagree in any way with a police order are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Likewise, Americans— young and old alike— who are  shot by police because they pointed a garden hose   at a police officer, achieved for their registration in their baseball glove box, relied upon the cane to steady by themselves, or were seen having fun with air rifles or BB guns are being denied their particular rights under the Constitution.

Female motorists who are unlucky enough to be stopped for a questionable traffic misdemeanor only to be subjected simply by police to  cavity searches by the side from the road   are now being denied their rights underneath the Constitution.

Man pedestrians and motorists alike who are being subjected to  roadside strip queries and rectal probes   by police centered largely on the color of their skin are being denied their particular rights under the Constitution.

American  people subjected to government surveillance   whereby their phone calls are being listened in upon, their mail and sms read, their movements monitored and their transactions monitored are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Homeowners who are being fined and arrested for raising chickens in their backyard,   allowing the lawn in their front yards to grow too long , and holding Bible studies in their homes are being denied their legal rights under the Constitution.

Decorated military veterans who are being  arrested just for criticizing the government on social networking   such as Facebook are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Homeless individuals who are being stressed, arrested and run out of towns by  laws that criminalize homelessness   are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Individuals whose  DNA has been forcibly gathered and entered into federal and state law enforcement databases   whether or not they have been convicted of any crime are now being denied their rights beneath the Constitution.

Drivers whose  license discs are being scanned, uploaded to a police database and utilized to map their movements , whether or not they are suspected associated with any crime, are being denied their rights under the Metabolic rate. The same goes for  drivers who are being ticketed for running afoul of red light cameras   without any real chance to defend themselves against this kind of charge are being denied their rights under the Constitution.

Protesters and  activists who are being tagged domestic terrorists and extremists   and charged of hate crimes to get speaking freely are being denied their rights under the Metabolism. Likewise, American citizens who being  targeted for murder by drone strikes abroad   without having already been charged, tried and found guilty of treason are being refused their rights under the Metabolic rate.

Hard-working Americans whose  bank accounts, houses, cars electronics and cash are seized by law enforcement   (operating based on asset forfeiture schemes that provide profit incentives for road robbery) are being denied their own rights under the Constitution.

So , what is the typical denominator here?

These are all American citizens— endowed by their Inventor with certain unalienable rights , rights that no person or government can take far from them, among these the ideal to life, liberty and the quest for happiness— and they are all being oppressed in one way yet another by a government that has cultivated drunk on power, cash and its own authority.

If the government— whether it is the President, Congress, the courts or any federal, condition or local agent or agency— can decide that any person has  simply no   rights, after that that person becomes less than a citizen, less than human, less than deserving of respect, dignity, civility and bodily integrity. He or she turns into an “ it, ” a faceless number that can be tallied and tracked, a quantifiable mass of tissues that can be discarded without conscience, an expendable cost which can be written off without a second thought, or an animal that can be bought, sold, branded, chained, caged, bred, neutered and euthanized at will.

That is a slippery slope that justifies all manner of violations in the name of national security, the interest of the condition and the so-called greater good.

Yet those who founded this country thought that what we conceive associated with as our rights received to us by God— we are created equal, according to the nation’s founding document, the particular Declaration of Independence— which government cannot create, neither can it extinguish our God-given rights. To do so would be to anoint the government with god-like forces and elevate it over the citizenry.

Unfortunately, we have been dancing with this particular devil for quite some time now.

If we continue to await the government to restore our freedoms, respect our rights, control in its abuses and restrain its agents from riding roughshod over our lives, our own liberty and our pleasure, then we will be waiting forever.

Already, the politicos are beating the particular war drums to herald the next phase of the abortion wars.

President Biden wants voters to  elect more pro-abortion rights officials   to ensure that “ a woman’s right to choose is fundamental. ” The Senate  plans to vote to codify the right to an abortion   into federal regulation. Chief Justice John G. Roberts is  starting an investigation   into how the Supreme Court’s write abortion ruling was leaked out. And polling indicates that the  majority   of the American individuals want abortion to remain lawful.

Like clockwork, we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of yet another political festival that could get scary, unpleasant and overwhelming really quick.

Before you get as well distracted by this easily timed diversion that has everyone forgetting about spiking gasoline prices, inflation, housing disadvantages, and warring empires, remind yourself that no matter how the Supreme Court rules in  Dobbs , it will not resolve the problem of a culture that values life based on the sliding scale.   Neither will it help us navigate the moral, ethical and scientific minefields that wait for us as technology plus humanity move ever closer to a point of singularity.

Humanity is being propelled at warp speed in to a whole new frontier when it comes to privacy, bodily autonomy, and what it indicates to be a human being. As such, we all haven’t even begun to wrap our heads close to how present-day legal arguments over bodily autonomy, personal privacy, vaccine mandates, the passing away penalty, and abortion perform into future discussions regarding singularity, artificial intelligence, cloning, and the privacy rights individuals in the face of increasingly invasive, intrusive and unavoidable government technologies.

Yet here is what I know.

Life is an inalienable right.

Simply by allowing the government to decide that or what is deserving of rights, it shifts the entire dialogue from one in which we are “ endowed by our Originator with certain inalienable rights” (that of life, freedom property and the pursuit of happiness) to one in which only these favored by the government get to appreciate such rights.

If all people are made equal, then all lives should be equally worthy of defense.

There is certainly an idea embraced by both Right and the Left based on their biases that there is a hierarchy to life, with some life worthier of protection compared to others, but there is no hierarchy of freedoms.

All freedoms hang jointly.

As I make clear in my book  Battlefield America: The Battle on the American People   and in the fictional counterpart  The Erik Blair Diaries , we must in no way stop working to protect life, protect our freedoms and maintain some semblance of our humanity.

Freedom cannot be the piece-meal venture.
