We’ve Lost Our Minds

As a Black American, I understand what happens when being human is not enough to be protected as a human being by the highest law of our land and I thank God for the Fourteenth (14th) Amendment to the United States Constitution.
The Fourteenth (14th) Amendment makes it extremely clear that no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, nor deny any person the equal protection of the law. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia understood this to apply to all human beings (from the womb to the tomb), when he said the United States Constitution “says what it says and doesn’t say what it doesn’t say.”
Today, it is equally clear that the Empire State (New York) Assembly does not believe being human is enough to merit the full protection of the law. Today, not only can a full term baby in the womb of his or her own mother be violently dismembered from limb to limb, he or she can now be legally shot in the heart with a poison dart to kill him or her by both doctors and non-doctors. Today, in my opinion, we the people, who vote for such legislators, have sunk to a whole new level of depravity.
As of February 13th, 2016, the Court has one vacant seat following the untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia, those who believe all human life matters will miss him dearly. However, as a Black American, in light of February being Black History Month where we remember the lives lost in the fight to have all human beings created in the image of God recognized as deserving life, liberty, property, and equal protection from the highest law of our land, it is apparent to me that we’ve lost more than a great Supreme Court Justice . . . we’ve lost our minds.
