53. The outlaw court, the Subversive 6, tries to rewrite the Constitution in their image

Section 1 of the 14th Amendment:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It is not written in mystic runes that only a select cabal can understand. It means what it says. By its Dobbs ruling, the Supreme Court elevated a parasite within a woman's body to personhood and endowed it with superior rights to her. She is held in indentured servitude to the state so long as that parasite is within her. Men do not have their rights subjugated to the parasite's newly created rights. This is undeniable unequal protection -- all persons who are not pregnant are better protected by the law, while all pregnant persons have their privileges and immunities severely restricted by law. The parasite is clearly not a citizen, as defined in the Constitution.

The Supreme Court is a rogue, outlaw court which is subverting the supreme law of the land and replacing it with extremist religious opinions.

Christians believe that the death of Christ was the only sacrifice required. milestogo Jul 2022 #29
