Are rights innate or are they a possession of the intellect?
Does an embryo or fetus have a right to life? Does a person in a permanent vegetative state?
Does an adult’s right to the pursuit of happiness trump a fetus’ right to life?
Does the Ninth Amendment give Supreme court Justices the right to infer an unspecified right from others expressly stated?
I maintain a right depends on the ability to intellectually desire something, and that the very young and the mentally deficient can desire life in a way that an embryo or vegetative (pvs) person can’t.
I also maintain that a desire to live can be assumed in a comatose person because of previous knowledge of life, but that a fetus has no right to life because of no previous knowledge, therefore no intellectual desire.
I also maintain that if Justices can’t infer rights asserted by plaintiffs then the Ninth Amendment is rendered absurd, since there is no reason to assert the existence of non-specified rights if they can’t be affirmed, and because it would be unreasonable to expect every conceivable act in liberty to be specifically legislated for.
Therefore abortion is a right, and judicial activism is a false claim attributed to the proper interpretation of laws.
