Bodies, Choices

“Bodies, Choices,” Monterey Coast Weekly – July 7, 2022

For all those screaming and yelling about this, they should understand one thing: the Constitution (“Letters,” June 30-July 6). Upon being sworn in, the justices take an oath “to support and defend the Constitution.” The Constitution says that those rights not enumerated in the Constitution shall be returned to the People. Abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution.

The Court rightfully decided that it should “be returned to the People.”Returned to the People! That’s democracy! We, the people, get to vote for our legislators. I can think of two countries where abortions are the norm: North Korea and China. Anyone who wants to move to either of these countries, I will help them pack, and wish them luck in their new environs.
