Ours is a nation of laws. Because the U.S. is a constitutional republic, the very fabric of American society has been woven on the premise that every citizen is subject to the law, and that the law itself is subject to constitutional limitations. Such a premise has served our country remarkably well and has produced one of the most effective legal systems ever devised. Unfortunately, the law's subjection to the Constitution has recently come to entail the law's subjection to the Supreme Court. In other words, at present, nine justices can place themselves "above the law," making a mockery of constitutional republicanism.
Only by understanding the power the Court wields, and the nature of the problem such power creates, can we understand the ramifications of the abortion decisions.
[Starting tomorrow, I will post a series of condensed articles from "A Resource Manual" on the horrors of abortion, infanticide & euthanasia]
