Science has overtaken the Supreme Court, and a conflict is looming.
Two simple questions:
(1) Do you believe that the Constitution is the “supreme Law of the Land,” as stated in Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the Constitution of the United States?
(2) Do you believe that the science of DNA has progressed to definitively prove that a person was at the place the DNA sample was collected from?
Never miss a local story.
If you answered no to either, then you can ignore the rest of this letter, if yes, then there is one inescapable conclusion you can come to, and that is that the “any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” (14th Amendment), provision is currently the Constitutional protection that must be provided to the newly created person as the sperm penetrates the egg, since DNA has proven that said person has a separate DNA from both the mother and father.
If this situation is uncomfortable for you, then your conflict is with the Constitution, not any other person or group. Your remedy is to propose and push for a constitutional amendment to amend or rescind the 14th Amendment.
Just food for thought!
