19. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

20. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

The only reasonable situation I can see would be in the case where the infant is clearly deceased but for some reason has not spontaneously aborted. Even then it possible for miracles to happen and we as children of God must take all precautions when it comes to a fragile new life.
