The current argument in favor of mandating masks, vaccines, and lockdowns due to SARS COVID-19 is that it is more important to safeguard the health of the general public than their innate freedom to decide what happens to their own bodies.
If this is true, then why is it okay for women to have abortions, which is a medical procedure that statistically murders unborn children/American citizens, to the tune of 61,628,584 abortions since 1973? That is about one-sixth of the current population in the U.S., according to the 2020 census, which averages to about 1,283,928.83 abortions per year.
The Supreme Court ruled that a person, in this instance a woman, is the only one who has the right to decide what happens to her body, be it having an abortion, which is 100 percent fatal to at least one—the unborn child/American citizen—because their freedom of choice is more important than the health and life of another individual.
The Democratic Party, the Progressive Left, the Biden administration, and most of the mainstream news media (i.e., CNN, The Washington Post, and MSNBC) now are making the argument that due to the SARS COVID-19 virus, which only has a 2 to 3 percent chance of transmission—not to mention the chance dying from it is anywhere from 0.00001 to 2.3 percent depending on age, weight, and/or any pre-existing conditions—that the government, be it local, state, and/or federal has the right to decide to mandate the individual, for instance, the same woman mentioned above, to wear a mask, have a vaccine shot, and be isolated in lockdown due to the possibility of endangering the health and life of other individuals.
This is a legal, ethical, and moral contradiction to, and therefore jeopardizes, the argument in favor of Roe vs. Wade, which places the freedom of the individual over the health and life of another individual, an unborn child/American citizen.
Basically, if the government, be it local, federal, and/or state, has the right to force a legal adult woman to wear a mask, get a COVID-19 vaccine, and be locked down in isolation, to try to eliminate the minute chance of people catching COVID-19, and the minute chance they catch it, of dying from it, then the government, be it local, federal, and/or state, has the right to ban abortions, which does absolutely kills thousands of unborn children/American citizens each day.
This is an apples to apples comparison because if the individual doesn’t have the right to control what they do or don’t do with their bodies, due to a minute statistical chance it could cause another individual to catch a deadly virus, which also has a minute statistical chance of killing them, then they do not have the right to have an abortion, which has a 100 percent chance of killing at least one unborn child/ American citizen.
If the Democratic Party, the progressive Left, the Biden administration, and most of the mainstream news media (i.e., CNN, Washington Post, and MSNBC) can mandate masks, vaccines, and lockdowns, then when the Republican Party wins in 2022, they could just as easily ban all abortions in the United States! Even governors and city counsels could ban abortion, too, for the same reasons I mentioned above, because once any government authority crosses this line, then the door is wide open!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
