Democrats going ‘state’s rights’ on abortion

leave a comment »

For years, I’ve argued that states, or voters, should decide abortion.  In other words, my problem with Roe v Wade was that it took the decision away from voters!  

In recent weeks, we’ve seen a surge of “blue states,” such as New York, rushing to pass their own abortion laws,.

The latest is Rhode Island, according to news reports:  

Like her fellow nominally Catholic governor Andrew Cuomo, Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo, who is also nominally Catholic, supports legislation making abortions legal up until the moment of birth.

The legislation, titled “The Reproductive Health Care Act, “ states that the state shall not “restrict an individual person from terminating that individual’s pregnancy after fetal viability when necessary to preserve the health or life of that individual…” 

The legislation asserts, “For purposes of this section, ‘fetal viability’ means that stage of gestation where the attending physician, taking into account the particular facts of the case, has determined that there is a reasonable likelihood of the fetus’ sustained survival outside of the womb with or without artificial support.”

The legislation repeals language in the state’s general laws saying that human life begins at conception. 

Virginia is lining up, as we hear.

Where do we go from here?   As I recall, Roe v Wade was about abortion in the first 12 weeks or so said the front page story on The New York Times back in 1973.

Are the new laws in New York or the ones contemplated in New Hampshire or Virginia in violation of  Roe v Wade?  Did anyone ever say that a woman has the right to an abortion at any time of her pregnancy?  Did Roe say that?

Furthermore, does Texas, or another state, now have the right to pass a law that restricts abortion after 12 weeks?

It’s a moral and legal mess.  Maybe it’s time for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe and let the states figure it out.  It appears that some are already doing that!

Does Maduro really have the armed forces?

leave a comment »

We hear that President Nicolas Maduro has the support of the armed forces.  But does he really? 

Remember the Kremlin back in 1991?  They ordered the armed forces to put down the Yeltsin movement but they didn’t.  In other words, soldiers were not willing to fight their own people to support a corrupt and unpopular regime.

I see the same thing happening down in Venezuela.

First, Maduro has not sent a task force to arrest Interim President Juan Guaido, as we see in news reports:  

More than 700 opponents of President Nicolas Maduro have been arrested during the latest push by Venezuela’s opposition to oust the socialist leader.

But there’s one anti-government activist security forces notably haven’t touched: Juan Guaido, the lawmaker who declared himself interim president in a direct challenge to Maduro’s rule.

So why not?  Why not deliver the knockout punch and put your opponent in jail?

I think that Maduro knows that such a move would provoke one of these three reactions, or all of them at once:

1) The armed forces will not arrest the man supported by the people in the streets;

2) Maduro is afraid that he will be arrested; and best of all,

3) It could bring about a military intervention or some kind of regional force made up of U.S. Marines, Brazilian troops and others.

Does Maduro really have the armed forces on his side?  He probably has the Cubans, but not much more.

Maduro needs to get out quickly —  or he will spend a long time chatting to a cellmate called Noriega in the U.S.
