I fully understand the idea of wanting perceived injustices to be resolved at the state rather than nationally. That was my issue with Roe v Wade in the first place, the idea of nine unelected officials deciding a decades-long moral debate is ludicrous. State laws should, in general, be more specific than national laws because it’s closer to the people.
That being said, if the national government is going to exist then the national government should be consistent.
Murder is illegal nationwide.
Murder is defined as the killing of another human being.
If a pregnant woman is killed in a car accident, the other driver involved is charged with double homicide.
And yet abortion is still legal and even considered a right by some people.
At the end of the day, I’m technically not even asking for the national government to abolish abortion on the national level. I’m asking for them to call a spade a spade. Regardless of convenience or feelings abortion is murder. With all that in mind the government is more than welcome to reevaluate how it looks at murder, I just want all of the lying and cognitive dissonance to stop.
