The Unconscionable Clause
Founder and future President James Madison, Jr. wrote in FEDERALIST # 45:
We've come a long long way from there baby... to the point of restricting ones personal beliefs and religious beliefs it appears."The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce...The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State."
"Is there not the right to refuse to perform an abortion?Obama is taking away that same right for doctors and nurses that do not believe in abortion...
There are analogies. Let us note a dramatic one. A prison guard who does not believe in the death penalty has the right to decline assignment to activate the electric chair."
"The Obama administration and Congress are moving quickly to deny a medical provider the comparable right. By a 56-41 vote, the United States Senate has defeated an amendment to legislation which would have sustained the right of a physician or other person to decline to abort a baby if federal taxpayer funds or the long arm of the feds were involved in the treatment.Obama administration is racking up quite a record on aborting babies....
Sixteen senators claiming to be Roman Catholic, 15 Democrats and one Republican, voted against the conscience clause. Nine such Senators, eight Republicans and one Democrat, voted for the conscience clause."
"It reversed the so-called Mexico City Policy, which precluded usage of American taxpayers’ money by international organizations to provide abortions.Whatever the founding fathers might have thought about abortion, they would have been very disappointed in how the federal government has steamrolled over states rights and personal rights.
It repealed embryonic-stem-cell research restrictions.
It championed funding by American taxpayers of $ 50 million to the United Nations Population Fund, which has supported cruel aspects of Chinese population control procedures.
Perhaps most dramatically of all, the President nominated, and the Senate confirmed, that conspicuous friend of abortion, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, to be Secretary of Health and Human Services, a new dimension for the camel-in-the-tent riddle."
