Thanks to Roe v Wade ? What are you talking about ? No one could be legally forced to choose to abort against their will, before or after Roe v Wade.
In godless countries run by godless people anything can be forced. Read some world history, people. And ifnot, look no farther than China

Like it or not all laws are based on "someone's" moral and ethical judgement. No matter how hard you try and deny it, that is a reality that can NEVER be altered.

Yes, you are really that stupid.
The Constitution's main purpose is to limit government. Any 1L knows that.
The DOI states in pertinent part: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
It is the same mindset the founding fathers had to write the Constitution; to ensure government could not deprive the citizens of the United States from those "unalienable rights."
There's not mention of morality in those words. Morality is subjective and the law; the constitution, and our freedom, is OBJECTIVE.
You're an idiot and it has been proven, over an over and over again.
Getting people banned, or as you say "bounced," only goes to show your level of desperation and inability to muster anything better than the proverbial "sore loser."
Now, go rub some ointment on your a$$. I apologize for the welts I left by spanking it so hard.
Maybe you'd want to have me arrested for child abuse...
LMFJAO!!!!
So what is the basis of our constitution? Where did the idea come from that we had God given rights? Where did our laws come from originally and who decided what should be punishable and what isn't?

I wasn't there. Were you? If so, answer your own question.

With the exception of the State of Louisiana and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, who follow the codes of laws of France and Spain respectively, our laws came from English common law.

As to who decided what's punishable and what isn't, I can tell you who didn't, and who doesn't in the United States; religion. The United States is a secular nation. Hence the provision of the 1st Amendment, which prohibits the establishment of religion by our governments, both state and federal.

britanica says

The common law of England was largely created in the period after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Anglo-Saxons, especially after the accession of Alfred the Great (871), had developed a body of rules resembling those being used by the Germanic peoples of northern Europe. Local customs governed most matters, while the church played a large part in government. Crimes were treated as wrongs for which compensation was made to the victim.

It seems that the the church did have much import into Eng common law and thereby Amer law.

You can't keep me down, I'm back. I am in the legal profession, and I am so smart that I stay ahead of you guys. I decide what's punishable and what isn't. I don't know how to take a hint no matter how many times I get banned. I just can't stay away from here. I love hanging out here because it's mostly full of women that I feel I can dominate with my crudeness, and bully tactics. Getting people banned, or as you say "bounced," only goes to show your level of desperation and inability to muster anything better than the proverbial "sore loser." It certainly isn't because I'm a complete loser and can't take a hint. Never mind the fact that I practically dared everyone with the "what are you going to do about it?" I guess you guys can do something about it which is why I have to keep joining again.

Now, go rub some ointment on your a$$. I apologize for the welts I left by spanking it so hard. Maybe you'd want to have me arrested for child abuse... I am the type you know.

I love spanking asses especially if they have balls in the front. Line up please, and girls, put a strap on for me please.

I have several topix profiles ready and waiting for every time I can't take the hint because I really am a pre teen acting bitch.

Maybe this will help you.

Nor did any side in the struggle to legislate morality at our nationís founding say to its opponents that trying to legislate morality was a breach of the wall of separation between church and state. Morality, after all, is not a church. They would have laughed at the confusion of mind revealed in one who thought that separating church from state meant separating morality from law. They wanted the nation to be moral. They wanted its laws to be just. But they did not want to give any one church a national legal advantage over the others. They did not want the nation to be Presbyterian, Baptist, or Roman Catholic, which is a far different issue from whether or not to have ethics-driven law.1 Under the Constitution the Founders enshrined freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. In seeking to avoid a state-established church, they were not thereby establishing secularism or separating law from morality.

The very fact that the Founders were creating a new Constitution for their fledgling nation arose because they understood the actions of King George to be morally evil, and politically unjust.2 They all knew quite well that morality belonged in politics, in fact that politics was simply morality applied to the public square, to the publicís business.

This is really me but I want to cause disruption on here, and my credibility is shot due to the many many times I have been banned proving I really am a little girl waiting for her boobies to come in so that I may play with them. These socks in my little girls bra will have to do in the meantime. Now who can I frame for this? Who will join me in framing someone else?

The constitution doesn't say anything about your god, much less that rights come from him.

I don't believe that is true. Early man relied on instinct just as wild animals do. He set up no system of laws and it was survival of the fittest or the luckiest.
