Considering the issues of abortion and government intrusion on constitutionally mandated rights is complex and is not always clear. This paper has addressed insufficient abortion rulings by the Supreme Court enacting a rule that does not take into account certain mitigating factors, such as anencephaly. In addition, by addressing the Biden-Harris Administration’s attempt at further government overstepping in the realm of public health and COVID-19, this paper attempts to clarify that the government may continue to run roughshod over civil liberties. To respond to these issues, education and evaluations of candidates on the part of the American people are crucial. John Adams, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, stated that “[liberty] must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned, and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood” (Adams). To fulfill the desires and vision of the Founding Fathers, it’s incumbent upon the American people to pursue liberty and seek out meaningful methods of transformation for the unstable system that currently exists.
