Hillary Clinton: 'The Unborn Person Doesn't Have Constitutional Rights' - Breitbart
We didn't, and without that, the Supreme Court has no power to act on the issue. The Supreme Court is only able to analyze constitutional, legislative, administrative, and common law, it is incapable of creating new law from whole cloth. Roe v. Wade was not constitutional analysis, but constitutional divination. They do not have that power.
As for privacy, it does not exist in the Constitution. The right to privacy has never gone as far as murder, not in this country anyway. The threshold issues are the constitutional/human rights issues, privacy always takes second seat to these. Until these issues are actually addressed by the people, the privacy right may exist but cannot usurp the state legal framework. States have the right, and duty to assume the constitutional/human rights exist and apply until the debate determines otherwise, and the Constitution is amended accordingly.
The question as to when constitutional rights accrue has never been debated by the public, and never enshrined in law, constitutional or otherwise. Until we have that debate Clinton is wrong. The Supreme Court may have spoken, and it may control the outcome of further judicial cases, but it was wrong, and its actions created a monster, which will continue to devour political time and energy until the people address this situation to their satisfaction.
For the most part the modern Supreme Court Justices have been intellectual fools, brilliant, but without sufficient actual life experiences to adjudicate the law. This can only be rectified by broadening the bench with people who have actual life experiences.
