Hence, we are guaranteed certain ”inalienable rights” under the Declaration of Independence, namely, life first, then liberty, because without life, liberty is a moot point. These rights come from our Creator and cannot be given or taken by men, including government. Sadly, late-term abortion was made “legal” in Maryland by statute way back in 1992. Therefore, no constitutional amendment is needed. A constitutional amendment will literally deregulate the entire abortion industry, which, ironically, was the “reason” for legalizing abortion in the first place, so that safety regulations could prevent maternal deaths from “back-alley” abortions.
