    forced pregnancy is technically involuntary servitude as defined in the 13th amendment. Slavery.    

    The right to be left alone to make personal decisions is the most fundamental right of an American citizen.  Only slaves, military members, minors and incompetents may have those rights abridged.

    So if the government abridges the rights of women to equal protection under the law because of incorporated entities interference in law making those laws are unconstitutional on their face. Or the government has denied women their constitutional rights for decades.

    •  Absolutely! Forced Birth IS Slavery! (5+ / 0-)

      I have been saying this for years and I wish that the Democrats would have the backbone to tell it like it is: that the state forcing women to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term and give birth against her will is a blatant violation of the 13th Amendment's guarantee against involuntary servitude.

      In fact, I do think that Roe v. Wade should have at least been partially decided on this provision of the Constitution.

      Thanks for stating this!
