Abortion and The Right to Life
Article one, section eight of the United States Constitution lists the enumerated powers of Congress. The 10th Amendment to the Constitution states that anything not specifically listed in Article one, section eight is in the province of "State's Rights" and the Federal government has no authority in such instances. Therefore Roe v Wade should be overturned. Having said that...Speaking as a former fetus, I am Pro-Life! For me, the question of when life begins is no question at all. When the cells of a fertilized egg divide...that's life.
And when you look at the economy... the number of abortions performed since 1973 when Roe v. Wade legalized abortions is 53 million. If you figure an average salary of $36,000 per person, that equates to roughly $145.9 billion in lost tax revenues.
Our current political leaders - including our current representation all claim to have Christian values. If they were Christian, they would know that it's wrong to kill at any stage of life.
