From a Constitutional standpoint, Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided. Why? Because the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution plainly stipulate that ALL matters not explicitly given to Federal authority, belong to the individual states to decide.

From the Democrats we hear talking points of forcing all states to legalize abortion, and from the Republicans we hear talking points forcing all states to ban abortion. Where is the regard for the Constitution of the United States of America?

Since both parties fail to respect our Constitution in this matter, one can only conclude that they are both happily using the matter as a wedge issue to divide the American people for their own political benefits, and that, folks, is about as unAmerican as you can get.

Make no mistake about it - The Federalizing of policies and issues which belong to the states was started by the Liberals long ago, but has now been embraced by the Bush faction of Neocons in Washington, but who said they were Conservative, except themselves, in their own empty rhetoric, devoid of anything that can reasonably be construed as Conservative principles?

To use an analogy from Animal Farm by George Orwell, the Democrats and Republicans sat around the table, and nobody could tell which was which.
