More abortion news. I have always wondered about the 'privacy' angle on abortion and how it is the Constitution's privacy clause that gives women the right to murder their unborn children.
I mean, with that reasoning, I'd say that all criminal acts then should be protected under the privacy clause, I mean, Common Sense is what we supposedly founded this country on. But alas . . .
- The Florida Supreme Court is considering whether to uphold a law banning most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, which would automatically trigger a stricter six-week ban.
- Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and others argue that the state constitution's privacy clause has protected the right to abortion for over 40 years.
- The state contends that the privacy clause was not intended to cover abortion and that the legislature should have the authority to regulate the issue.
