My Thoughts:

This meme brings up an interesting point. Is abortion a Constitutional right? I don’t think so, let me explain why.

Many women and men think that abortion is a Constitutional right. I can’t imagine how they think so. The Constitution guarantees (among other things) life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I think that applies to babies too.

If the pregnancy is risking endangering the baby’s life, then the mother probably has a right to abort. She also has a right to life, obviously. But once the baby has a heartbeat, I think it is considered a human. The topic is somewhat of a tricky one, especially because of economic concerns, but I think that the baby has a right to live once it has a heartbeat and is living. There are many horrible things that could have happened to the mother to make her pregnant. Things like rape, incest, etc. If she doesn’t want that baby I think that is perfectly understandable. But once the baby has a heartbeat it is a living human and should be treated as such.

This meme is also interesting because it brings up the point that liberals have seemingly contradictory and non-nonsensical views about gun rights and abortion rights. They claim that abortion is a right yet it isn’t alluded to anywhere in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or any other amendment. However, gun rights are guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment. Yet many liberals still support abortion but not gun rights. That makes no sense to me. Abortion may be a tricky legal case in some situations. I think that good (albeit not moral) legal arguments could be made on both sides in cases of rape, incest, inability to raise the baby without state assistance, or risk of death to the mother. But there is no grey area for gun rights.  The 2nd Amendment guarantees them.
