Our rights do not come from the Constitution

Our rights do not come from the Constitution

It’s all over the internet. Hillary Clinton on Meet the Press declaring that the unborn do not have “Constitutional rights.”

People on both sides of the abortion issue are hopping mad.

The Pro-Abortion faction is furious because the former Miss Rodham refers to the unborn child as a “person.”

What nerve!! A person?!

Just the other day, Planned Parenthood Coven Leader Cecile Richards bemoaned that we need to “humanize” abortion. By that, apparently she meant humanize everything but the human who is being slaughtered and sold for parts.

Naturally Pro-Life people are mortified that Hillary is effectively declaring the unborn unworthy of having rights. Especially when you consider how Hillary doles out rights like they’re going out of style. You have a “right” to use the bathroom of your choice. You have a “right” to earn $15.00 per hour. You have a “right” to income equality. You have a “right” to healthcare.

But there is something even more disgusting about Hillary’s moronic declaration on Meet the Press than the fact that she wants to determine whether or not the unborn child has “rights.”

The question she is asked by Chuck Todd is, “When or if does an unborn child have constitutional rights?”

Let’s leave aside this grammatical mess of a question and ask yourself this. “Constitutional rights?”

See, this is the problem with the Left. The question itself assumes that rights are something that are bestowed on a person by the Government. The Constitution doesn’t give us rights.

The Constitution is there to preserve and protect our God-given rights.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —

The purpose of Government is not to endow us with rights or to determine when and if we become endowed with rights. Government is there to secure these rights.

The very premise of the question is flawed.

But, you see, Hillary Clinton is NEVER going to say, “Chuck, it isn’t up to government to determine when someone has the rights they are endowed with by our Creator.” Because Hillary Clinton does not believe that our rights come from God; she believes they are handed out like merits by the government.

Our rights do not come from the Constitution. But for Hillary, that is precisely what she believes.

Listen to this arrogant bitch:

Well, under our laws, currently … uh … that is not something that … uh … exists. Uh … The … uh … the … the … unborn … uh … person … uh … doesn’t have constitutional rights. Now, that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can … uh … in the vast majority of … uh … instances to … you know … help a mother who is carrying a child … uh … and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support. It doesn’t mean that … uh … you don’t … uh … do everything possible to try tuh … uh … fulfill your obligations, but it … it … does not include … uh … sacrificing the woman’s right to make decisions, and I think that’s … uh … an important distinction that, under Roe vs. Wade … uh … we’ve had enshrined under our Constitution.

This idiot seems to believe that it is the government’s responsibility to make sure a pregnant woman has everything she needs to bring a child to term. She believes government must “fulfill its obligations.”

But the one and only obligation the government has regarding the rights of the people is to secure these rights, not bestow them upon us.

Hillary Clinton is completely unaware of what the primary function of government is supposed to be.

The Preamble to the Constitution says:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Government is to secure our rights.

The Constitution does not grant rights to the individual. It never has.

The Constitution is in place to protect the rights that we as human beings have — wholly apart from government.

In Hillary’s world, the “right to make a decision” about terminating a pregnancy is “enshrined” in our Constitution. In other words, it is a “right” that the Supreme Court created. Whereas, the right to life, endowed in us by our Creator, takes a back seat to a man-made “right” imposed on the people by nine unelected judges.

In Hillary’s world, the government gets to pick and choose which “rights” will be bestowed upon us, when we are permitted to enjoy these “rights,” and what “rights” take precedence over our God-given Rights.

Without a Constitution, we still possess God-given Rights. Hillary does not get to determine “if and when” these God-given Rights apply. Government doesn’t get to determine it. And neither does the Supreme Court.

Nobody is to decide for us whether or not our God-given Rights are ours to have. Nobody.

Not the Supreme Court. Not the President. Not even our Constitution.

And yet listen to this woman so cavalierly stating who does and does not enjoy “Constitutional rights” as if such a thing even exists.

For Leftists like Hillary Clinton, you are not endowed by your Creator with any Rights. Not even the right to life. Government, and government alone, is the arbiter of “rights.”

Honestly. The arrogance and ignorance of this woman really is mind-boggling.

    Hillary is a COMMUNIST. You get what she wants you to have, and you will like it. If you do not comply, she will take it all away from you, and throw your sorry a$$ into prison. If you are lucky she will let you, and 99 others, “clean” her 600 sq. ft. microwave, uhh, err FREE SPEECH room, …and there isn’t anything you can say or do about it.


    So, stand over there, …wait your turn, …and STFU!


    Elections have consequences. CHOOSE WISELY!
