Every state legislator in the U.S. takes an oath to uphold their state and federal Constitutions. However, in the real world, those oaths can apparently be meaningless. Last year, I wrote about state laws that allow children to consent to vaccines and other medical treatments. These laws clearly violate the U.S. Constitution, but legislatures are passing them anyway, promoting healthcare industry profits while thumbing their noses at parents' Constitutional rights. More than 33 years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court said: "Most children, even in adolescence, simply are not able to make sound judgments concerning many decisions, including their need for medical care or treatment. Parents can and must make those judgments." Federal law is a higher legal authority than state law, so state legislatures are supposed to defer to the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Constitution. But apparently, healthcare industry profits are a "higher" calling to most politicians.
