I strongly believe in states rights. For most issues, states would have different standards. Legal drinking age should be established at the state level. Driving age should be established at the state level. Penalties for crimes should be established at the state level. The federal government should provide for our national defense and to protect our constitutional rights.
I am very Pro-Life. There are several candidates that propose that Roe vs Wade should be overturned and handled at the state level. For a long time, I agreed.
After hearing Mike Huckabee defend his position on a constitutional amendment to end abortion, I have changed my mind. His argument is that abortion is a Moral issue, just as slavery was. To follow the states rights arguments would allow one state to outlaw slavery and a neighbor state to protect it as a right of it’s citizens. How could this ever be Moral or even fair?
That is why abortion must be abolished by constitutional amendment.
