Pro-lifer: Dems need lesson on federalism and freedom

U.S. ConstitutionA notion expressed by Democratic presidential contenders could violate the U.S. Constitution.

The top contenders vying for the White House have expressed the idea that the federal government has the right to review state laws or proposed bills that would regulate the industry, and negate ones they don't agree with.

Noah Brandt of Americans United for Life tells OneNewsNow that could negate state-level regulation of abortion clinics and upend state laws about parental notification, waiting periods, and ultrasounds.

“Abortion fanaticism has become its own religion in so many ways with its acolytes demanding fealty at all costs,” he says, “even if it violates the basic tenets of American freedom such as self-rule, federalism, and protection of life.”

The extremely liberal candidates want to abolish the requirement that abortionists have admitting privileges as required of other doctors.

According to Brandt, however, abortion doctors should have the requirement to send their patients to an emergency room if something goes wrong.

“And this is too much for them?” he asks. “That sort of tells us that these pro-abortion candidates and politicians, any law that protects life, or the health of women and girls, is too much for them.”

He says the remaining candidates need to examine the U.S. Constitution which deals with the separation of powers between state and federal governments, and that likely would provide the answer as well as the Roe v Wade decision, which allows states to regulate abortions.
