I'm still looking for that personal right to an abortion in the words of our US Constitution. One would think that abortion, like so many other so called Federal rights and Federal restrictions really fall under the Tenth Amendment, i.e., fall under the purview of the States. But silly me, I'm not PC.
I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.
Abortion isn't a "right," per se', but it has, in many ways, become one. Lots of things we consider "rights" nowadays aren't specifically listed in the constitution. Instead of changing the constitution every decade or so, society finds ways to put certain "right" under other umbrella rights guaranteed by the constitution. I don't know if that's right or wrong, good or bad, but it's just the way it works.
What if you couldn't afford one?
But, back before the infestation of the idea that the government exists to provide you with the means to exercise your rights, if you did not provide yourself with said equimpent, you would be punished.
