Ben Shapiro: “No, Abortion Isn’t A Constitutional Right”
Simple facts. The Left is anti-life. The Constitution has no mention of abortion in any way, shape or form. That is law that was made from the bench of the Supreme Court and should never have happened.
No, murder isn’t a Constitutional right! Let’s call abortion by its real name!

In the past several weeks, a bevy of states have passed extensive new restrictions on abortion. Alabama has effectively banned abortion from point of conception. Georgia has banned abortion from the time a heartbeat is detected, as have Ohio, Kentucky and Mississippi. Missouri has banned abortion after eight weeks. Other states are on the move as well.
This has prompted paroxysms of rage from the media and the political left — the same folks who celebrated when New York passed a law effectively allowing abortion up until point of birth and who defended Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s perverse statements about late-term abortion. According to these thinkers, conservatives have encroached on a supposed “right to abortion” inherent in the Constitution.
This, of course, is a lie. There is no “right to abortion” in the Constitution. The founders would have been appalled by such a statement. The Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade (1973) is a legal monstrosity by every available metric: As legal scholar John Hart Ely wrote, Roe “is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.” The court’s rationale is specious; the court relied on the ridiculous precedent in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965) that a broad “right to privacy” can be crafted from “penumbras, formed by emanations.” Then the court extended that right to privacy to include the killing of a third party, an unborn human life — and overrode state definitions of human life in the process.

Not only is abortion, not a constitutional right I believe it is a denial of constitutional rights for another person the baby. The government doesn’t grant you constitutional rights they are natural, the government can only take them away.
But if a woman decides to keep a baby it magically has those rights. But the government let alone a mother doesn’t have the ability to grant constitutional rights, therefore, the only thing I can conclude is that the government would have to deny constitutional rights of the baby in the case of abortion.
