DEMOCRAT Eleanor Holmes Norton: Abortion Is A “Constitutional Right”…”

Who knew?

Via Red Alert:

The Constitution apparently protects Americans’ right to bear arms, freedom of speech and right to have an abortion, according to Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.).

The non-voting delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives was a guest on PBS‘ ‘To the Contrary‘ this week, where the women discussed Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis’ filibuster of the 20-week abortion ban bill. Holmes Norton spoke out against the polling data that shows a majority of Texans support the proposed legislation.

“It’s very interesting for you to tell me, or to tell the world, that 62 percent of this or that are for or against somebody’s constitutional rights,” she told the other panelists.

She stressed that abortion was not subject to public opinion, since the matter was already decided with Roe v. Wade. Holmes Norton then stated again that the 1973 Supreme Court case ”declared that the right to an abortion…is a constitutional right.” […]

The Congresswoman is correct in saying that the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade declared abortion constitutional and a “fundamental right.” But that doesn’t mean an abortion is a constitutional right. There is no amendment that guarantees a woman’s access to an abortion, unlike the right to bears arms or the freedom of speech.

Obama voted 4 times in support of infanticide:

The liberal media ignored this gruesome story.

Today Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told the National Right to Life Convention that Democrats don’t care about infanticide.
Life News reported:

During a speech at the National Right to Life convention on Friday, pro-life Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Democrats in the Senate don’t really care that abortionists like Kermit Gosnell kill babies in what is essentially infanticide.

Cruz opened by thanking pro-life advocates for their efforts.

“Thank you for that commitment to those who are most vulnerable among us, despite the ridicule of the mainstream media,” he said.

Cruz recalled the story of when his older daughter was getting ready for her unborn younger sister to be be born. And he remembered how his daughter offered his unborn child her blanket to cuddle with and chew on for security.

“It is amazing that, as a two-year-old, child, Caroline was able to understand something that Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid don’t understand.”

…Cruz mentioned Douglas Karpen, the late-term abortion practitioner who practices in Houston, Texas who also kills babies born alive and he said Senate Democrats don’t care that someone like Karpen operates like that. He condemned news outlets that ignored Gosnell and said pro-life advocates were successful in pressuring the media to cover his murder trial.
