Are the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses being abused?

  • The Clauses Are Being Misinterpreted and Misused

    The Due Process Clauses ensure procedural due process of law and do not ensure substantive due process of law. This is the way the original Due Process Clause was originally interpreted. The Equal Protection Clause ensures the equal enforcement of the laws and does not ensure the equal content of the laws. The equal protection of the laws, as mentioned in the Clause, means the equal enforcement of the laws. It does not mean the equal content of the laws. The Equal Protection Clause immediately follows the Due Process Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States' Constitution. That context suggests the Equal Protection Clause, like the Due Process Clause, is a procedural clause that does not include "a substantive component." The original intent of the three Clauses, two Due Process Clauses and one Equal Protection Clause, denote the laws in effect, as the originally intended interpretations of the Clauses represent the laws that are truly prevailing in nature.
