Obama has released a new radio ad attacking McCain’s positions on abortion, labeling them as extremist. Here are some quotes on the ad’s content from the Political Punch:
"As a nurse practitioner with Planned Parenthood," says a woman's voice, "I know abortion is one of most difficult decisions a woman will ever make. I'm Val Baron. Let me tell you - if Roe v Wade is overturned, the lives and health of women will be put at risk. That's why this election is so important. John McCain's out of touch with women today. McCain wants to take away our right to choose. That's what women need to understand. That's how high the stakes are.""As president, John McCain will make abortion illegal," says an announcer. "McCain says quote, 'I do not support Roe v. Wade. It should be overturned.' And listen to McCain's answer on Meet the Press.""A constitutional amendment to ban all abortions," says the late great Tim Russert. "You're for that?""Yes, sir," says McCain."We can't let John McCain take away our right to choose," says Baron. "We can't let him take us back."
First, this is a despicable ad, because it is using fear tactics to scare women into voting for Obama. There are several things the ad does not say, and you have to be completely ignorant about the Constitution, the Supreme Court, the Executive Branch, and the Legislative Branch to believe the ad.1. Roe v. Wade (1973) will not be overturned with the current makeup of the Court. Someone actually has to come off the Court for that to even have a chance, which even then is so minute as to have any fear whatsoever that it will be overturned. And that’s the biggest lie of all. It wouldn’t even be overturned. It would be returned to the states where the people could decide.
As President, John McCain cannot legislate. He cannot “make abortion illegal.” A simple understanding of how our government works would debunk this lie.
What is wrong with John McCain not supporting Roe v. Wade? Is there no First Amendment? Even leftist law professors agree it was one of the most poorly decided legal decisions the Court ever made. The issue should have been left to the states under the Tenth Amendment. Instead, the Court hijacked the issue, and by judicial fiat trumped the entire history of American law, which until 1973 allowed the individual states to decide. You may think it is good policy to make abortion legal, but that does not mean that the Court should legislate the issue. The choice should have been left to the American people and the legislatures. Roe v. Wade was an anti-choice, anti-states’ rights decision, all to appease the radical “choice” crowd. If they were truly pro-choice, they would let the states decide these important decisions.
You have to be absolutely ignorant to think that John McCain could somehow pass an abortion ban amendment. First, the President of the United States cannot pass an amendment, nor does he or she have any role in the decision:
From the institution in charge of ratification process, the Government Archives:
"Since the President does not have a constitutional role in the amendment process, the joint resolution does not go to the White House for signature or approval."
How absolutely ignorant is an ad that claims he does have a role?
- How likely do you think it would be that the two houses would propose and amendment when they will be Democrat controlled? Even if they were not Democrat controlled, you’d still need 2/3 of the House and Senate to propose the amendment:
"The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures."
Do you think that such an amendment proposal could get through the House and Senate? Not a chance. And even if it does, it has to be approved by 38 of the 50 states, which is impossible as well.
The Supreme Court liberal Justices knew that it would be impossible to pass a Constitutional amendment banning abortion, so they decided to amend the Constitution on their own. Five people in all of America circumvented states’ rights and the Constitution to declare that there is no choice in the abortion issue. Who even needs the amendment process when you have a Supreme Court in your pockets? Instead of Big Oil, the Left has Big Court.
So, to suggest that McCain can somehow overturn Roe v. Wade is the pinnacle of ignorance. Then again, the Left supports the Messiah, Barack America, who can change the world. Maybe that is why they believe the President can do more than he’s Constitutionally allowed. Maybe they want to change that, too, to institute their socialist agenda.
