Bernie Sanders declares abortion is a ’constitutional right’

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday declared abortion is a ’constitutional right’. He did not elaborate on his tweet. Sanders’ comments follow Alabama’s legislature passing a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony at any stage of pregnancy with almost no exceptions.

"constitutional", you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means!

quite the opposite. the constitution and the 14th ammendment explicitly guarantee the protection of the right to life....so you must first find a logical reason to omit that guarentee before you can make other assumptions.

The right to free speech does no harm. The right to Own a gun does no harm. The list goes on... The right to kill something, by all scientific fact, human? Pretty sure that doesn't follow the same logic...

If everything is a Constitutional right then nothing is a Constitutional right. This is Sanders, and many other Lefties, diminishing the value and power of the Constitution. This will eventually bring on a totalitarian state where all "rights" will come from government and the Constitution will be taught as an outdated and ineffective/inefficient document to be mocked and ridiculed.

last time I checked, it takes 2/3 of both chambers and 3/4 of states to change the constitution, and we are no where near having that kind of broad consensus about anything, regardless of what vocal senators or candidates may think or be willing to say to try to get elected. The culture war is over folks. The left has lost, badly. They may continue to bury themselves deeper and deeper for a while more, but even young people are waking up to their insanity.

If anything, the Constitution directly opposes abortion with the 14th Amendment guaranteeing the right to life...

No Bernie, ending a life because it would inconvenience you is NOT a Constitutional right.
