Roe vs. Wade should be upheld.
On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court
made a very serious mistake. That mistake was, that it
took the decision for legalizing abortion out of the
hands of the fifty (50) state legislatures and put it
in the hands of the federal government.
The good news about that horrible decision is that we
live in a Constitutional Republic where we as Americans
can elect men and women to positions from the very
lowest to the very highest political positions in
every state in these United States that will use their
elected positions to incrementally bring a change in
our country from a culture of death to a culture of
Should the U.S. Supreme Court have voted to strip the
rights of these fifty (50) states to make their own
decisions about laws regarding pregnancy termination?
On 01/22/1973 I was within three months of my sixteenth
(16th) birthday. I had arrived as a legal immigrant to
the United States of America, four and one half years
before, with a limited fluency in English. It would be
years later while I was in college before I would even
begin to understand the debate and the decision that
had been made that year. But by then it was over. The
High Court had ruled. Or was it over? The truth was,
it was not over and now 30 years later we are still
suffering from this High Court, high hand tactics of
taking the decision away from the states and their
constituents and making it themselves.
Did the U.S. Supreme Court have to vote to take away
the right of each state to decide on its own about
My answer to that question is No. The U.S. Supreme
Court on a regular basis decides to stay out of
decisions at lower court levels. They should have
decided to stay out of this debate and allow each
individual state legislature to decide their own laws
on this issue. These state legislatures are closer to
the people and as a result they should have been
allowed to decide this very emotional issue in each one
of their own state capitals.
Fast forward now to November 1988, I began my candidacy
to replace Congressman Anthony C. Beilenson. He was
proud to tell his constituents that he was the father
of abortion in the state of California. When I began
running for the United States House of Representatives,
my pro-life position then as it is has remained is that
I believed that the U.S. Supreme Court should not have
stripped away the right of each of the fifty (50)
states to decide individually on pregnancy termination.
It is wrong, that because of the actions taken by that
U.S. Supreme Court in 1973, no state on its own
independent of the others can decide that the science
supports that termination's of pregnancy are
termination's of lives not tissue and thereby must not
be allowed to remain legal.
