Do women’s “rights” trump men’s?

According to our American Constitution all citizens of the United States have rights enumerated in Amendments.  In 1920 men gave women the right to vote by passing the Nineteenth Amendment.

The Constitution does not limit (“deny or disparage”) “others (rights) retained by the people.” But special rights were never intended for noncitizens. And Rights belong to individuals, not demographic groups. No legal American citizen is denied constitutional rights.

One of many vague and confusing aspects of demands for new “rights” by women begs the question: why do they demand special rights? One, sanctioned by the federal court,—the so-called right to kill their unborn babies—is barbaric and immoral. Millions are slaughtered simply as a birth control method. Birth of an unwanted child poses an inconvenience to some women’s lifestyles.

Provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood, was established to practice eugenics—improving the racial quality of the population by selective breeding. This vile organization supplies 30-40 percent of all abortions (324,000 each year) in the U. S. (


Often some women don’t seem to know what they want, and become emotionally irrational about it.

Recently, a Wilmington StarNews article described a small rally in old downtown Wilmington to mimic the 500,000 Women’s March in Washington, D. D. on President Trump’s first full day in office. (Link below)

Makenzie Holland, StarNews staff writer, interviewed some women who attended the rally. Cassidy Lamb, one of the speakers, said that the phrase “It’s not just a moment, it’s a movement…resonated” with her.

She may have gotten this idea from President Donald Trump who called “Make America Great Again” a movement—just as the conservative “Tea Party” is a movement; both successful. I predict women’s marches won’t be, despite Lamb’s wanting “to keep the momentum going.” They are not based on acceptable American values.

Facebook posts advise that these women “stay vigilant” and “let your voice be heard.” That assumes some of them are alert and have something to say; not evident in this newspaper article.

Ms. Lamb doesn’t seem to know what’s going on. She’s been writing and calling her representatives; about what, we don’t know. Oh, and she’d “really like to learn more about organizations (what kind?) in town and how me and my family can get involved.”

Local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People President Deborah Maxwell predicted that “keeping contact and keeping informed” and “educating the public” (about what?) is the key to keep momentum going. Educating and spreading false propaganda are quite different processes.

And, of course, the women are “reaching out” to congressional representatives, said Roberta Penn, an organizer of the march. She says they are responsible to tell what they want and “protesting when they don’t get it.” This sounds like a child-parent relationship.

Maxwell said the Wilmington women were diverse and “were there for a united cause.” Based on this article, I have no idea what the “cause” was. Why were these women marching?  I doubt that any of them know. I suspect they have been stirred up by professional leftist organizers to rally and protest whenever they are told—regardless the politically generated social justice issue.
