Exactly. I got into an debate over the right to life and I find that to be one of the hardest decisions I have come to. That Constitutionally speaking
in regards to life.
I have decided to go with my gut instincts on that issue that it is the right of a women to get an abortion if there was a rape, health risk, incest
or not late term.
This goes against my moral and spiritual beliefs, BUT, it is the basis of my stance on freedoms so I cannot be hypocritical. As for the substance you
mention, I think all substances need to be legalized. There is NOTHING in the Constitution or Natural Law that allows the banishment of any
If the government is allowed to dictate what is put in my body, they own my body then.
That goes against the very definition of Natural Law. The state has no rights in regards to anyone's body.
Be it birth or any other such things.
That could be a Constitutional argument. My body is mine by rights and the state has no overpowering right to contradict my choices.
I know one of the priest class lawyers would bring into the argument the elastic clause but of course, I do not follow the dictates of the priests. I
am a heretic.

Sorry, sometimes I can be an ass. Must be my personality or that I have four older brothers, that until I was 12 and kicked two of their asses, I had
to take their guff day in and day out. Growing up on a farm I usually had to do parts of their chores and to this day, I don't appreciate being told
what to do. It may be another reason why I am all about rights.
Like I said, Sorry.
