Seeing the outrage reminds me of how outraged individuals were over losing the right to own slaves.
A lawless president has inspired lawless legislatures. Our laws are crystal clear the government cannot come between a [man] & [his property].
[This] will cost Alabama [men] their [livelihood], and threatens the [property] rights of [men] across the country. We must fight back, and our next president must act to enshrine [slavery] into law.
57% of voters think [slavery] should stay in place, poll says
You know what? Sometimes the law is morally wrong.
Slavery was legal. 100%. No question. It was legal. But it was morally wrong. So we fought to overturn that and free slaves to give them the same rights we held to be self-evident.
Those are the same rights that the unborn have. Not the same rights they deserve, not the same rights they will one day get: the same rights that they have. We are infringing on their pre-existing— not made-by-the-government— rights. Just as we were the slaves. Exactly the same.Permalink
