The recent Dobbs opinion, by the Supreme Court of the United States, overruled both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey and returned the subject and discussion of abortion to the States as it had been for the first 185 years of America's history. Regardless of your political agenda, if you're honest with yourself, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization corrected a grievous error made by the Supreme Court nearly 50 years ago.
Since January 1973 and under the guise of a 'right' that never existed, more than 63 million unborn children have been murdered in the United States. During that time, abortion has become a convenient birth control method for far too many women.
But forcing an entire nation to submit to and pay for the personal decisions of women who choose to terminate the lives of their unborn children was wrong from the very start and a considerable majority of legal scholars acknowledge that fact. Neither abortion nor privacy is found within the U.S. Constitution. Any doubt about this is not founded in fact.
With that in mind, the Tenth Amendment's (of the U.S. Constitution) simple language, which is a part of the Bill of Rights and was ratified on December 15, 1791, confirms—
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”
But now, Leftists are lining up to pay for and otherwise encourage and support abortions for anyone living in a state where access to abortions is now either restricted or prohibited. Many companies, including Amazon and Tesla, have made public statements to say their shareholders will pay for travel and accommodation to facilitate the murder of unborn children, in violation of state law, where abortion is prohibited.
If crossing state lines for what one state describes as underage sex or sex with a minor is a criminal offense and if someone who facilitates that act also commits a crime, how is it not a crime for a corporation or a wealthy, sympathetic person to pay for someone to cross state lines to murder an unborn child?
If abortion is illegal in a state and someone pays for someone else to cross state lines to violate that law, then, I would say that both the person who breaks the law and returns and the person or entity making it possible for the first person to violate the law should be prosecuted.
