To The Herald-Whig:
I noticed the story on Page 16A of the Feb. 15 issue of The Herald-Whig, written by Summer Ballentine of the Associated Press.
I also have a copy of the U.S. Constitution.
The last paragraph of this story illustrates the wickedness involved within our judicial systems ever since the Roe v. Wade court ruling in 1973.
The story states that decisions made by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in several court cases, including cases in 2015 and 2016, indicated that requiring medical providers to check for a fetal heartbeat before performing an abortion is unconstitutional.
These decisions were and always will be in error.
Our Declaration of Independence clearly states that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The United States and the court system both ignore our Constitution by allowing abortion in any way, shape or form.
Amendment 14 of the Constitution reads that all persons born in the United States are citizens of the United States and the state where they reside. It says that no state shall deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
I must say that abortion is not performed by due process of law. Abortion unduly ends a human life, thereby depriving that person of life.
Our U.S. government and our entire court system must come to the realization that they must answer to God for all decisions they make, and they must realize that God is our ultimate judge.
Please pray for our nation, our courts and our entire government.
