3 key constitutional questions we have to answer in our struggle against the Crown

The crown pandemic sweeping the globe has dramatically changed American life. Much of the nation is always under protection orders in the stores are closed and more than 26 million people are now out of work even at home. But along with the new, practical issues that define our new life – When is it safe to see my family? How do I get to get my stimulus check? What cleaning products work best to keep my house safe – flu viruses’ is also pose complex constitutional questions that highlight the deep ideological differences of the country in the middle of a crisis. While the federal and state governments, much of the economy shutter had to slow the spread of the virus, they feel some Americans have gone too far, violating the rights enshrined in the Constitution, such as the right to bear arms or to practice religion freedom. The fight takes place across the country in the courts, where numerous cases were presented to the questions is between religious gatherings are social distancing restrictions are identified both abortion clinics injured non-essential medical services shuttering of women’s right to the procedure. President Donald Trump the need to “liberate” some states with strict public health measures a tweet, but also criticized Georgia for the restrictions to be solved soon. In a briefing at the White House on 17 April, Trump appeared with the feeling of citizens to restrictions on how he told how his own advisors, the reopening may be too fast disastrous chafing empathy. “I think some things are too difficult,” he said. Here are beating the three young crown constitutional battles in the war. participating First Amendment restrictions on religious gatherings- including the number of people who are allowed to see the services have become a serious problem in several states. In recent weeks, several lawsuits have been filed claiming all over the country that the First Amendment guarantee restrictions violate the free exercise of religion. Churches and interest groups have already filed lawsuits against governments in several states, including Kansas, New Mexico, Texas, Mississippi, Florida and California. In Kansas, for example, the government has introduced a limit of 10 people in religious meetings; the governor’s office said that six deaths and 80 cases in religious meetings crown of the state have been associated. But a court order blocked the execution of the order in the state two of the governor asked and said that “churches and religious activities seem to have been identified among the essential functions for further treatment.” The judge is considering the possibility of broader injunction should take, and in other cases, as there are in the country has not yet even completed. The Trump administration has done a great interest in this case religious freedom. The Justice Department has filed a declaration of interest in a similar case in Mississippi, with a siding church that claims authorities unfairly targeted for the application, if members of the community to participate in a drive-in service l ‘ April 8 Attorney general William Barr were punished says that issues of religious freedom is a shared priority for the Department of Justice during the pandemic. “Whatever measures are taken are against religion are set against any similar business activities and others,” said Barr Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on April 21, “You can only religion for special loads.” In a conversation between hosted more than 500 religious leaders from the White House on April 23, Barr was “very concerned”, according to a source on the call, of situations in which religious meetings are limited at a different level than other activities. “This is the heart of the First Amendment,” Barr said after the meeting participant who also stressed the attorney general said he is in touch with US attorneys across the country in other cases had similar problems.

Second Amendment Second Amendment issues are close to place themselves in the conditions in which businesses and retailers “non-essential” bought as a weapon “material”. Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, for example, has had the closure of weapons as part of international efforts to slow the orderly transfer viruses. Several causes were from gun groups, businesses and owners who defy the closures, including one proposed by the National Rifle Association in New York presented the claims of Governor Andrew Cuomo “effectively and indefinitely suspended, a key component of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution “classified with no significant offers weapons and forcing them to close. On March 28, the Ministry issued Homeland Security (DHS), the characteristic leadership “workers to operate the door weapon, ammunition or manufacturers of products, retailers, importers, distributors, and Shooting” as part of the “essential workers Critical Infrastructure . ” The guidelines are “advisory not to be …” according to the document and should be “considered a federal or standard policy.” However, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, which covers closures separate actions to be tackled, by contrast, then their decisions and allow new armories open. “It would be my definition, but which is defined at the federal level,” said Democrat of New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on March 30, announced the resumption of trade in weapons. At the center of these debates Trump has offered its sales gun support, another State control measures by imposing gun during lambasting crown, although they were not a direct response to the pandemic. “What did they do in Virginia regarding the second amendment only a terrible thing,” he said at the conference on April 17. (He was governor of Virginia gun control measures signed into law in April, even though most of the bills before spreading crown pandemic discussed by the United States and introduced.) The right to abortion Several States have temporarily no medical procedure essential, banned for help to get medical care given the national shortage. But states such as Texas, Alabama, Ohio, Arkansas, Iowa and Oklahoma also put abortion in this category, to stop the challenges of the groups to court to abortion rights, saying that the service is opportunistic and unconstitutional. “The crown novel manage to get exactly what anti-abortion activists have fought for almost five decades, has never presented the biggest threat to legal abortion in America,” Robin Marty, director of communications for Goldammer Fund, one of abortion funds Alabama, she wrote on time. Defense organizations and abortion providers filed lawsuits in Alabama, Iowa, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas, with the argument that orders violate the first mark abortion in the case of Roe v. Wade, which protects the right of women to abortion. “Prohibition of this pandemic user access to abortion is unconstitutional,” Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement. “Abortion care is time-critical and essential health care, which has a significant impact on the health and life of a person, so it is protected as a fundamental right.” In early April they were granted injunctions in Ohio, Alabama and Oklahoma, so the forward starting process. The cause Iowa was dropped after the government made it clear that not all surgical abortions would be prohibited. Some miscarriages can also continues in Texas after the governor loosened the original restrictions in a new order in late April.
