Life at Conception or Murder?

Jenni H. of the National Pro-Life Alliance re-sent an email ascribed to Senator Rand Paul which encourages readers to sign a petition promoting the Life at Conception Act. This is one of those cases in which the petition is actually a fund raiser.

 

I am typically annoyed by these kind of fund raisers because they feel a bit deceptive. Fund raising petitions smack of irrelevance pulling on the heart strings of a cause an organization or political candidate senses will finance their agenda.

 

At the same time I also understand it takes money to move an agenda you or I are very supportive toward. This is a case in which I am very supportive. I feel it is murder to kill an unborn child. Leftists and feminists tell women abortion isn’t murder. They tell them that killing an unborn child is really the simple removal of a fetus that is nothing else than a female body part like ovaries or an appendix.

 

The thing is ovaries are akin to eggs. Unfertilized that egg is nothing but a body part that is expendable. An appendix is not a vital organ in which experts only guess as to what its function or used to be to our older ancient ancestors. An appendix is not an organ in which life perpetuates independently from a woman’s body at an ever maturing rate.

 

The organ that scientists and doctors call a fetus is that which does increasingly mature and someday will be expelled by a female body to grow and live independently. That makes a fetus more than an organ. That makes a fetus a living person. If you believe in a Creator that living person has a living soul. If you are an idiotic atheist that living person is destined for sentience. To forcefully terminate that life against the desires of that life is murder. It is irrelevant if that unborn life does not have the capability to comprehend its future sentience.

 

Either way terminating a life is murder especially if the primary reason for doing so is as a form of birth control. I could care less if a Leftist or feminist argues about an unborn baby that is conceived in rape, incest or physical defect. Those unborn children comprise less than 5% of aborted babies. 98% of aborted babies are killed because a gal and/or guy copulated and primarily the gal is convinced or has been convinced it is an personal inconvenience.

 

On a personal level I would like to stop all abortion except if the life of the female depends on an abortion. BUT DEAR GOD, killing an unborn child as a form of birth control or convenience is simply murder. 2% or less of abortions occur because of rape, incest or physical defect. THIS MEANS 98% unborn babies are legally murdered! THAT IS CRAZY!

 

So sign the National Pro-Life Alliance Life at Conception Act. For God’s sake if it is in your budget send the NPLA some dough for the cause. If you are not an NPLA find another organization that supports giving rights to an unborn baby so he or she does not become a part 98% murder rate of legalized infanticide.

Did you see the message below?

Following huge pro-life advancements in the last election, Senator Rand Paul is working hard to pass the Life at Conception Act and it’s vital you act.

If you haven’t signed it yet, I hope you will take a moment to do so by clicking here.

If you have signed it already, could you spread the word by forwarding this email to your friends and family?

Every name on the petition will help build support for the Life at Conception Act.

Subject: Sign the Petition to Bypass Roe v. Wade

 

For more than 40 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.

They have invented laws that condemned to painful deaths without trial more than 61 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.”

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.

In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases.

But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended.

Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.

Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it.

That is why it’s so urgent you sign the petition to your Senators and Congressman that I will link to in a moment.

Thanks to the results of the last election, you and I are in a better than ever position to force an up or down roll call vote on the Life at Conception Act.

And your petition will help do just that.

Signing the Life at Conception Act petition will help break through the opposition clinging to abortion-on-demand and ultimately win a vote on this life-saving bill to overturn Roe v. Wade.

A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection.

This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.”

When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.

Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster.

But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a constitutional right.

Instead the Supreme Court said:

“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”

Then the High Court made a key admission:

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., “Roe” who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

The fact is, the 14th Amendment couldn’t be clearer:

“. . . nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.”

Furthermore, the 14th Amendment says:

“Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”

That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.

But this simple, logical and obviously right legislation will not become law without a fight.

And that’s where your help is critical.

You see, it will be a tough fight, but I believe with your signed petition it is one we can win.

Please click here to sign your petition right away.

 

By turning up the heat through a massive, national, grass-roots campaign in this session of Congress, one of two things will happen.

If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.

But even if a Life at Conception Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will send another crew of radical abortionists down to defeat in the two thousand sixteen elections.

Either way, the unborn win . . . unless you do nothing.

That’s why the National Pro-Life Alliance is contacting hundreds of thousands of Americans just like you to mobilize a grass-roots army to pass a Life at Conception Act.

The first thing you must do is sign your petition by clicking here.

They are the key ingredient in the National Pro-Life Alliance’s plan to pass a Life at Conception Act. They’ll also organize:

 

Hard-hitting TV, radio and newspaper ads to be run just before each vote, detailing the horrors of abortion and mobilizing the American people.

 

Extensive personal lobbying of key members of Congress by rank and file National Pro-Life Alliance members and staff.

 

A series of newspaper columns to be distributed free to all 1,387 daily newspapers now published in the United States.

 

An extensive email, direct mail and telephone campaign to generate at least one million petitions to Congress like the one linked to in this letter.

 

Of course, to do all this will take a lot of money.

Just to email and mail the letters necessary to produce one million petitions will cost at least $460,000.

Newspaper, TV and radio are even more expensive.

But I’m sure you’ll agree pro-lifers cannot just sit by watching the slaughter continue.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s goal is to deliver one million petitions to the House and Senate in support of a Life at Conception Act.

When the bill comes up for a vote in Congress, it is crucial to have the full weight of an informed public backing the pro-life position.

I feel confident that the folks at National Pro-Life Alliance can gather those one million petitions.

But even though many Americans who receive this email will sign the petition, many won’t be able to contribute. That’s why it’s vital you give $10, $25, $50, $100, or even more if you can.

Without your help the National Pro-Life Alliance will be unable to gather the one million petitions and mount the full-scale national campaign necessary to pass a Life at Conception Act.

A sacrificial gift of $35 or even $100 or $500 now could spare literally millions of innocent babies in years to come.  But if that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know that a National Pro-Life Alliance supporter wants to make your decision to give easier by agreeing to match your donation, no matter the size, increasing its value by 50%!

So please respond right away with your signed petition.

And please help with a contribution of at least $25 or $35. Some people have already given as much as $500. Others have given $50 and $100.

But no matter how much you give, whether it’s chipping in with $10 or a larger contribution of $150, I guarantee your contribution is urgently needed and will be deeply appreciated.

That’s why I hope and pray that you will not delay a moment to make a contribution of $1000, $500, $100, $50, $25, or even $10 if you can.

Your contribution to the National Pro-Life Alliance and your signed petition will be the first steps toward reversing Roe v. Wade and waking up the politicians about where our barbarous pro-abortion policy is taking us.

Sincerely,

Rand Paul,
United States Senator

 

P.S. The Supreme Court itself admitted — if Congress declares unborn children “persons” under the law, the constitutional case for abortion-on-demand “collapses.”

 

That’s why it’s so critical to work to get a vote on the Life at Conception Act, legislation that would reverse Roe v. Wade.

Please help make that happen. Sign your petition today to the National Pro-Life Alliance to reverse Roe v. Wade.

Your petition is the critical first step in fighting to end abortion.

Along with your signed petition, please consider making a sacrificial contribution of $100, $50, $25.  If that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know a generous donor has agreed to match all contributions, no matter the size, increasing your gift to the National Pro-Life Alliance by 50%!

Sign the Life at Conception Act Below

 

Dear Pro-life American,

Tragically, over 4,000 babies are aborted every day in our nation.

That’s over 1.6 million every year!

But by passing a Life at Conception Act you and I can end abortion in America!

The Supreme Court itself admitted in Roe that once Congress establishes the personhood of unborn children, they must be protected by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution which explicitly says: “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property.”

Since the Supreme Court is waiting for someone to tell them who the law counts as persons, let’s not wait another minute!

Your petition will let your Senators and Congressman know that their constituents support full protection for the unborn and that they must stand for life in Washington.

After signing the petition, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10, $25 or more to NPLA.  No matter the amount you give, your donation will be matched by a generous supporter!

     Sincerely,

Because every human life is precious in the eyes of God, and science and common sense dictate that life begins at conception, it is clear that abortion is the wanton taking of human life and no truly great nation can allow this practice to take place.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s members, staff and volunteers are dedicated to halting this slaughter once and for all. And despite the many remaining obstacles, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Personhood Defeats Baby Killing Abortion


Truth of Abortion

 Personhood for All - No Matter how Small

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John R. Houk

© March 3, 2014

 

The Personhood Movement does not get a lot of publicity from the Mainstream Media because of an opinion set down by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The decision of the SCOTUS Roe v. Wade made abortion on demand legal regardless of any legislation or people’s initiatives on a State or Federal level. The irony of the Roe v. Wade decision is SCOTUS then and in later decisions not necessarily about abortion but of personhood left the door open legislatures – State & Federal – to define personhood which would have a huge effect of the Secular Humanist Leftist agenda of demoralizing America. Which is probably the reason the MSM does not give a lot of attention except for occasionally printing anti-personhood propaganda.

 

“Nevertheless, the Supreme Court justices enshrined this logical inconsistency in their 1973 decision to legalize abortion. By allowing mothers to abort their babies, the Court implicitly operated on the assumption that in this instance it is acceptable for one person to end the life of another, giving no regard to the innocence of that person or his God-given right to life.

 

This could only be done by denying the personhood of the fetus (a Latin term for the unborn child, meaning “little one”). In the face of the state of Texas’ argument that “the fetus is a ‘person’ within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment,” Justice Harry Blackmun responded, “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.” Justice Blackmun nevertheless concluded that, “the word ‘person’ as used in the Fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn.”

 

The High Court’s confusion over the nature of personhood was again demonstrated on January 21, 2010, when it ruled in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, that corporations are considered persons under the Constitution. Although technically corporations are identified as “legal fictions,” by extending to corporations “personhood,” the Court affirmed their right under the First Amendment to engage in political campaign speech.

 

Thus we have the supreme irony—which only our American judicial system is capable of —corporations are now considered persons, but unborn babies in the womb are not.” (A Person’s a Person, No Matter How Small; By Dr. Karen Gushta; Stop the War on Children; 2/21/11)

 

AND SO the very SCOTUS decisions that activist courts made child murder legal has given an out to make abortion murder by law.

 

With this in mind Senator Rand Paul has been involved for some time to get voters to sign a Personhood petition to support a Federal (U.S. Congress) Life Begins at Conception Act. I will post the most recent email signed by Rand Paul but is actually sent out by the National Pro-Life Alliance momentarily. Prior to that though I am going to post a page from Personhood USA that clearly presents the Personhood case. Personhood USA must be on to something for when I Googled “Personhood Movement” that organization came with a number of Left Wing blogs and news sites doing hit pieces on it. I even noticed in a one Google summary (sorry I didn’t pay attention at the time to the link) that suggested that Personhood USA might cause a rift in the Pro-Life movement. This kind of press makes Personhood USA an organization and website to be attentive toward if irritates Leftists so much.

 

If you don’t want to wait to get to Rand Paul to sign the petition you can go HERE. BUT I would hope you would read through the Personhood USA definition to get a clearer understanding.

What is Personhood?

 

Personhood USA About Us Page

 

Personhood is the cultural and legal recognition of the equal and unalienable rights of human beings.

 

VIDEO: Pro-life? What is it?

 

“Nothing is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man.”

Thomas Jefferson

 

When the term “person” is applied to a particular class of human beings, it is an affirmation of their individual rights. In other words, to be a person is to be protected by a series of God-given rights and constitutional guarantees such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

 

This terrifies the pro-abortion foes!

 

They know that if we clearly define the preborn baby as a person, they will have the same right to life as all Americans do!

 

This then also begs the question, is every human being a person?

 

There is a very real sense in which the need to answer this second question is, in itself, an absurdity.

 

If you look up the word “person” in your average dictionary (we’ll use Webster’s), you’ll find something like this: “Person n. A human being.”

 

“After fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being. It is no longer a matter of taste or opinion…it is plain experimental evidence. Each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception.”

Dr. Jerome Lejeune, “Father of Modern Genetics”

 

A person, simply put, is a human being. This fact should be enough. The intrinsic humanity of unborn children, by definition, makes them persons, and should, therefore, guarantee their protection under the law.

 

Personhood holds the key to filling the “Blackmun Hole,” a startling admission in the Roe v. Wade majority opinion:

 

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.”

Justice Harry Blackmun, Roe v. Wade

 

VIDEO: Roe v. Wade

 

In 1973, the science of fetology was not able to prove, as it can now, that a living, fully human, and unique individual exists at the moment of fertilization and continues to grow through various stages of development in a continuum until death.

 

However, pick up any embryology book today and you will find that your life and every person’s life began at fertilization (Click to read more). [Blog Editor: Unfortunately the link is missing where it reads “Click to read more”.]

 

“[The zygote], formed by the union of an oocyte and a sperm, is the beginning of a new human being.”

Keith L. Moore in The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology, 7th edition. Philadelphia, PA: Saunders, 2003. pp. 16, 2.

 

For nearly forty years, however, this has not been the case. The situation we are left with is that, in America, there is a group of living human beings who have no protection under the law and are being killed en masse every day. It is truly astounding, but not wholly unprecedented.

 

“In the eyes of the law…the slave is not a person.”

Virginia Supreme Court, 1858

 

VIDEO: A Day To Advance!

 

Throughout history, certain people groups have felt the brunt of a system which denied their humanity, stripped their personhood, and subjected them to horrors beyond measure. While the legal framework that made such horrors possible has now been removed, it remains firmly in place for preborn Americans.

 

There remains one, and only one, group of human beings in the United States today for which being human is not enough. The inconvenience of their existence has resulted in this shameful injustice.

 

What is a person? A person is a human being at every age.

 

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am a Pro-Life/ANTI-Abortion kind of guy. I don’t believe a woman has a right to kill an unborn baby’s life. The woman might carry the unborn life but that does not make the baby a portion of her body. The concept of Pro-Choice – i.e. a woman should be able to choose decisions about her own body – is a load of self-delusion by Leftist ideology more interested in controlling/managing the extent of the Earth’s population (See Also HERE) than the Civil Liberties of a person’s life (Personhood) that has not been born yet.

 

In early 1973 the Supreme Court exacted a piece of unconstitutional Judicial Activism by creating law rather than ruling on the constitutionality of a law. In essence the case of Roe v Wade the Justices decided by fiat and a 7-2 vote to allow women to kill their unborn babies on demand. The Heritage Foundation has a great summary of the Roe v Wade decision:

 

Summary

In a 7-2 opinion by Justice Harry Blackmun, the Court ruled that a right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees a woman’s right to an abortion.  The Due Process Clause protects a broad right to privacy that is also found in the Ninth Amendment and the penumbras of the Bill of Rights.  This substantive due process right to privacy permits a woman to terminate her pregnancy for any reason during the first trimester.  Subsequent to approximately the end of the first trimester, the state may reasonably regulate abortions in ways related to maternal health.  After viability, the state may regulate or proscribe abortions, but it must permit them if found necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother, an exception which was expanded in Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton.

 

Analysis

This case is activist because the Supreme Court relies upon notions of living constitutionalism, invoking the doctrine of “substantive due process” to create a right that is nowhere to be found in the text of the Constitution.  This doctrine, which was established in Dred Scott v. Sandford, is the prime example of judges reading broad constitutional terms divorced from any textual or originalist moorings, thereby making them empty vessels into which they can pour any policy preferences they desire.  The Due Process Clause, which is now being used by judges as a judicial wildcard, was simply meant to protect the citizens from government abuse by ensuring that no one be deprived of life, liberty, or property except by a fair process.  The fact that the Court has used the word substantive to describe a clause that is clearly about process creates an anachronism that defies language and logic.  The Court in Roe wields the Clause to support abortion rights without any reasoned justification: after citing previous Supreme Court cases that erroneously established a broad constitutional right to privacy, the Court blithely asserted that this right “is broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.”

 

The opinion, which received a wave of criticism from those on both sides of the abortion debate, is infamous not only for its foundationless assertions about the meaning of the Due Process Clause, but also for its flawed historical analysis.  In an attempt to evaluate societal opinions about abortion throughout history, Blackmun looks to ancient societies, such as the Persian Empire, as well as the views of modern American lobbying organizations, but completely skips over the state of abortion regulation at the time of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment.  Conveniently so.  In 1868 “there were at least 36 laws enacted by state or territorial legislatures limiting abortion, stated Justice William Rehnquist in his dissent.

 

In his dissent, Justice Byron White accurately described this decision as “an exercise of raw judicial power.”  Under the guise of constitutional interpretation, the activist majority seized from the American people their ability to decide this controversial issue through the democratic process. (Roe v. Wade; Heritage Foundation)

 

There is an innovative Pro-Life plan to circumvent Leftists in Congress and in the Supreme Court. The plan is called the Life at Conception Movement (Personhood). Some Pro-Life Activists in individual States have been lobbying for such a law on a State basis. Senator Rand Paul has taken the Movement to the National level by introducing S. 583 in March 2013:

 

Calendar No. 30

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

 

S. 583

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

March 18, 2013

 

Read the second time and placed on the calendar


A BILL

 

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

 

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Life at Conception Act of 2013’.

 

SEC. 2. RIGHT TO LIFE.

 

To implement equal protection for the right to life of each born and preborn human person, and pursuant to the duty and authority of the Congress, including Congress’ power under article I, section 8, to make necessary and proper laws, and Congress’ power under section 5 of the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Congress hereby declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child.

 

SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

 

In this Act:

 

(1) HUMAN PERSON; HUMAN BEING- The terms ‘human person’ and ‘human being’ include each member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being.

 

(2) STATE- The term ‘State’, and as used in the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States and other applicable provisions of the Constitution, includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and each other territory or possession of the United States.

 

Calendar No. 30

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

S. 583

 

A BILL

 

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.


March 18, 2013

Read the second time and placed on the calendar (S. 583: A bill to implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the rightGovTrack.us)

 

Here is the Library of Congress summary of S. 583:

 

3/14/2013–Introduced.

 

Life at Conception Act of 2013 – Declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being beginning at the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual comes into being. Prohibits construing this Act to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child. (S. 583 Library of Congress Summary; GovTrack.us)

 

The only drawback I see about S. 583 is that it is a Bill rather than an Amendment. A Bill is easy to repeal depending on the Political Party in power in Congress and/or POTUS. An Amendment centered around the Life at Conception Movement is difficult if not also impossible to get through Congress with America’s current political spectrum divide. On the other hand if Congress managed to pass such an Amendment I suspect a sufficient number of States would line up behind it. The most populous States may be bastions of Leftist deception; however more States are Conservative on the Pro-Life stand pertaining to abortion. Amendments are ratified by State Ratification rather than a direct popular vote.

 

If S. 583 passed with the slimmest of margins in both Houses of Congress I suspect the voters’ choice for President in 2008 and 2012 – our Marxist-in-Chief – would veto the legislation. However, a successful Congressional campaign to enact the Life at Conception Act can lead to an annual thorn in Obama’s side until a Conservative President is elected in 2016. With the Life at Conception Act in mind it should be a no-brainer that Conservatives must win both the Senate and the House in the November 2014 General Elections.

 

At any rate the standard form of pressure that can be placed on our Representatives and Senators is via the petition method. Obviously petitions have no impact on the law on a Federal basis; however Representatives and Senators due pay attention to the numbers of their constituents that sign a petition. The petition numbers give legislators an idea on how to operate their campaigns for reelection.

 

The National Pro-Life Alliance (NPLA) has been at least one of the vehicles that Senator Rand Paul to educate voters on the Life at Conception Act and how such a bill would use the Supreme Court’s own guidelines to make abortion on demand as a birth control method to at least become limited. The NPLA is not only using petitions to influence Representatives and Senators but the organization is also using the petition method as a fundraiser. This a fantastic fundraiser to participate in particularly for Christians who still believe in Biblical Morality. The NPLA petition will lead you to a donation page that will offer choices of donations. Take note that if you are in my boat and have a tight budget and you desire to make sure you give to your Church you might feel a bit limited if you even can donate to the Life at Conception cause; nonetheless one of the options is “other”. So I say, “DO SOMETHING!’ even if it is just $1 buck.

Sign the petition to bypass Roe v. Wade

 

By Senator Rand Paul

Sent: 10/24/2013 3:23 PM

Sent by National Pro-Life Alliance

 

Dear Concerned American,

For 40 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.

They have invented laws that condemned to painful deaths without trial more than 56 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.”

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.

In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases.

But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended.

Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.

Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it.

That is why it’s so urgent you sign the petition to your Senators and Congressman that I will link to in a moment.

You see, in the coming year it is vital every Member of Congress be put on record.

And your petition today will help do just that.

Signing the Life at Conception Act petition will help break through the opposition clinging to abortion-on-demand and get a vote on this life-saving bill to overturn Roe v. Wade.

A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection.

This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.”

When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.

Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster.

But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a constitutional right.

Instead the Supreme Court said:

“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”

 

Then the High Court made a key admission:

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., “Roe” who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

The fact is, the 14th Amendment couldn’t be clearer:

“. . . nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.”

Furthermore, the 14th Amendment says:

“Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”

That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.

But this simple, logical and obviously right legislation will not become law without a fight.

And that’s where your help is critical.
Please click here to sign your petition right away.

By turning up the heat on Congress in 2013 through a massive, national, grass-roots campaign, one of two things will happen.

If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.

But even if a Life at Conception Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will set the stage to defeat radical abortionists in the next election.

Either way, the unborn win . . . unless you do nothing.

That’s why the National Pro-Life Alliance is contacting hundreds of thousands of Americans just like you to mobilize a grass-roots army to pass a Life at Conception Act. The first thing you must do is sign your petition by clicking here.

They are the key ingredient in the National Pro-Life Alliance’s plan to pass a Life at Conception Act. They’ll also organize:

 

Hard-hitting TV, radio and newspaper ads to be run just before each vote, detailing the horrors of abortion and mobilizing the American people.

 

Extensive personal lobbying of key members of Congress by rank and file National Pro-Life Alliance members and staff.

 

A series of newspaper columns to be distributed free to all 1,437 daily newspapers now published in the United States.

 

An extensive email, direct mail and telephone campaign to generate at least one million petitions to Congress like the one linked to in this letter.

 

Of course, to do all this will take a lot of money.

Just to email and mail the letters necessary to produce one million petitions will cost at least $460,000.

Newspaper, TV and radio are even more expensive.

But I’m sure you’ll agree pro-lifers cannot just sit by watching the slaughter continue.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s goal is to deliver one million petitions to the House and Senate in support of a Life at Conception Act.

When the bill comes up for a vote in Congress, it is crucial to have the full weight of an informed public backing the pro-life position.

I feel confident that the folks at National Pro-Life Alliance can gather those one million petitions.

But even though many Americans who receive this email will sign the petition, many won’t be able to contribute. That’s why it’s vital you give $10, $25, $50, $100, or even more if you can.

Without your help the National Pro-Life Alliance will be unable to gather the one million petitions and mount the full-scale national campaign necessary to pass a Life at Conception Act.

A sacrificial gift of $35 or even $100 or $500 now could spare literally millions of innocent babies in years to come. But if that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know that a National Pro-Life Alliance supporter wants to make your decision to give easier by agreeing to match your donation, no matter the size, increasing its value by 50%!

So please respond right away with your signed petition.

 

And please help with a contribution of at least $25 or $35. Some people have already given as much as $500. Others have given $50 and $100.

But no matter how much you give, whether it’s chipping in with $10 or a larger contribution of $150, I guarantee your contribution is urgently needed and will be deeply appreciated.

That’s why I hope and pray that you will not delay a moment to make a contribution of $1000, $500, $100, $50, $25, or even $10 if you can.

Your contribution to the National Pro-Life Alliance and your signed petition will be the first steps toward reversing Roe v. Wade and waking up the politicians about where our barbarous pro-abortion policy is taking us.

Sincerely,

Rand Paul,
United States Senator

 

P.S. The Supreme Court itself admitted — if Congress declares unborn children “persons” under the law, the constitutional case for abortion-on-demand “collapses.”

 

Please help make that happen. Sign your petition today to the National Pro-Life Alliance to reverse Roe v. Wade, along with a sacrificial contribution of $100, $50, $25.  If that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know a generous donor has agreed to match all contributions, no matter the size, increasing your gift to the National Pro-Life Alliance by 50%!

Life at Conception Overturns Roe v Wade


John R. Houk

© July 28, 2013

 

Senator Rand Paul explains how Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision allows for legislators – State level and Federal level – to define when life begins for an unborn baby. Thus defining life beginning at conception effectively ends abortion murder. Why? Because the 14th Amendment protects life.

 

VIDEO: Rand Paul on the Life at Conception Act

 

Amendment 14

 

SECTION 1.

 

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

 

SECTION 2.

 

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

 

SECTION 3.

 

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

 

SECTION 4.

 

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

 

SECTION 5.

 

The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

 

Section 1 is the reference giving rights to humans. I highlighted the relevant portions in bold print above, but for the sake of brevity below is the highlighted bold print of Section 1:

 

No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

 

In the matter of Texas disallowing abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy when the kid is fully formed and recognized as a human, you can see the outrage I feel toward Leftists that feel a21 Week Old Baby on Delivery woman’s Right of Choice outweighs a human being’s Right to Live.

Abortion is murder. I’m not going to get into argument abortion in cases of rape, incest or the threat to a mother’s life. Those three pro-abortion arguments are a mere diversion to distract Pro-Life and uninformed people on the fence about abortion about the overwhelming reason abortions happen. THAT REASON is birth control! DEFINITELY birth control abortion is murder and must be stopped!

Because every human life is precious in the eyes of God, and science and common sense dictate that life begins at conception, it is clear that abortion is the wanton taking of human life and no truly great nation can allow this practice to take place.

Ever since the dreadful Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, more than 55 million precious unborn babies have lost their lives.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s members, staff and volunteers are dedicated to halting this slaughter once and for all. And despite the many remaining obstacles, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

National Pro-Life Alliance’s Focus Is Passing Substantive Pro-Life Legislation

The National Pro-Life Alliance occupies a unique and important role in the pro-life movement. The focus of many other pro-life organizations is research, publications or counseling.

These are all important and worthy activities, but the National Pro-Life Alliance is singular in its focus on passing pro-life legislation that will protect the unborn from the moment of conception onward.

We believe that it is not sufficient to merely support minor regulations on abortion in a few outrageous cases.

Instead, members of the National Pro-Life Alliance lobby both incumbents and candidates for office to come out clearly for measure like a Life at Conception Act to legislatively define constitutionally-protected “personhood” as beginning at the moment of conception.

Grass-Roots Pressure Has Built Record Support in Congress for Ending, Not Merely Regulating, Abortion-on-Demand

The grass-roots lobbying efforts of our 650,000 members have garnered a record level of support and cosponsors for such substantive measures.

The fact is, even with pro-abortion politicians still in leadership positions in the Senate and a radical President in the White House, pro-lifers have record support in Congress. More than 80 new members of Congress were elected on pro-life platforms. Now pro-lifers must hold the feet of each and every self-proclaimed “pro-life” member of Congress to the fire and demand meaningful legislation to limit, and ultimately end, abortion-on-demand.

Yet pro-abortion politicians from both parties will use every trick available to stop pro-life legislation. Nevertheless READ THE REST

Get Over the Gaffe and STILL Support Akin for Senate


Todd Akin Family

John R. Houk

© August 22, 2012

 

GOP Rep. Todd Akin is running for the Senate Seat currently held by the Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill. Akin has enjoyed an ever widening poll lead over McCaskill until a gaffe moment made him out to be an uncaring male concerning the issue of rape and abortion.

 

Democrats jumped on Akin like flies on manure. That was to be expected from Leftist hypocrites. The irony has been is that many big dog Republicans including presumptive Republican Nominee for President Mitt Romney.

 

Now I think I can guess why these Establishment Republicans sold Akin out.

 

I am certain at the top of the list is Political Correctness and the ability of the Democratic Party to control (or at least manage) the Media talking points when it comes to Republicans, Tea Party Candidates and Social Conservatives. Establishment Republicans are ever concerned on the damage the Left Mainstream Media (MSM) can form in the mind of voters concerning image.

                                                       

Next on the list of the Establishment sell-out of Akin is an actual Establishment Republican dislike of the ever growing Conservative wing of the GOP that primarily dedicated to Tea Party politics and Social Conservatism. In essence it is my belief the Establishment Republican power base are the Crony Capitalists that Tea Party Conservatives are weary of being associated.

 

For a little clarity’s sake, what is Crony Capitalism?

 

Crony capitalism and genuine capitalism, if not opposites, are fundamentally opposed. Unfortunately the broader public, to date, is largely unaware of this.

 

Crony capitalism is the marriage of the state and private special interests. Some people have called it corporatism, mercantilism, fascism, or even Communism.

 

We will call it crony capitalism.

 

By whatever name, it is phony capitalism.

 

Over the years the public has been taught that many of the problems it faces on a day to day basis such as the lack of jobs, rising prices, corruption in Congress, and so on are a result of capitalism.

 

If so, it is a perverted capitalism.

 

These unsavory realities are largely the result of government/private “partnerships.”

 

Whether in banking, agriculture, housing, energy, transportation, manufacturing, or nearly any other facet of the economy, the “unsavory” parts are often the result of public/private collusion.

 

Why can’t you get any kind of return on … READ THE REST (What is Crony Capitalism; website AgainstCronyCapitalism.org)

 

These are my thoughts on why Akin’s own Republican Party has sold him out on a gaffe.

 

As I said, I am not surprised the Dems went after Akin’s gaffe because Dems are hypocrites when it comes to the moral high ground. If I Googled enough I can come up with a number of Dems that had moral or near criminal behavior that the Dems and the MSM never called for a resignation or not to run an election campaign. However I like to point out one of the biggest Dem dog the Democrats protected from political fall-out.

 

That big dog Dem is former President Slick Willie (Bill or William) Clinton. Clinton’s behavior at the least was an adulterous skirt chaser and at the worst a serial rapist. When Clinton’s sperm was proven to be on the skirt of then intern Monica Lewinsky, it was indisputable proof an unfaithful husband. Clinton should have resigned and of course he refused. AND the Dems and the MSM backed Clinton’s desire to remain in the Office of President of the United States.

 

Rep. Todd Akin in his campaign to unseat Claire McCaskill from the Senate is a Pro-Life Social Conservative. He believes life begins at conception (as do I). His thoughts on abortion and the right to life run so deep that he is in the crowd that rape should not be a reason for killing a baby (I waver back and forth on this issue). In explaining his Pro-Life stance he used the words “legitimate rape” in an interview. Of course there is no such thing as a legitimate rape. So what other phrase could Rep. Akin have used?

 

Perhaps there is a difference between rape and consensual rough sex. In which case, a better word for “legitimate” would be actual rape. Statistics do show that actual rape produces far less pregnancies than consensual sex. Do the statistics line up with Akin’s thought that a woman’s biology somehow prevents male sperm from fertilizing a female egg in rape? This is where Akin screwed up. The statistics and the alleged science Akin refers to are not a match.

 

The statistics refer more to the occasions of rape and pregnancy has more to do with the sexual prowess of the rapist. An example I read runs something like – a rapist is impotent or prematurely ejaculates – hence the statistics implicates a failure of planting the male seed rather than the female body rejecting a rapist’s sperm.

 

Below are three WND articles that defend Rep. Todd Akin’s right to stick to his guns and continue to run for the Office of Senator from the State of Missouri based on his politics rather than a gaffe – really the first if not only gaffe in Akin’s campaign to unseat a Liberal Democratic Party Senator.

Constitutionally Overrule SCOTUS on Abortion

How do we overturn the abortion flood opened by Roe v. Wade? Take the Supreme Court out of the equation by Congress defining life begins at conception just as the Bible declares. Congress can do this without an Amendment to the Constitution by enacting a Bill.

 

1 “Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
And take heed, you peoples from afar!
The Lord has called Me from the womb;
From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name.
2 And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword;
In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me,
And made Me a polished shaft;
In His quiver He has hidden Me.” (Isa. 49: 1-2
NKJV)

 

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jer. 1: 5
NKJV)

 

Senator Rand Paul is circulating a petition to show Congress that voters are more Pro-Life than kill the unborn baby. Now we all know the purpose of the petition is a fund raiser; nonetheless imagine if there was viral Internet support to work around the Supreme Court constitutionally. You can read Rand Paul’s stand on abortion/Pro-Life from his Senate-Govt. website HERE.

Left Wing liar-crook Senator Reid is the current Senate Majority leader by virtue of the Dems being the majority in the Senate. As you know the Dems elicit their pro-abortion stance by not recognizing a fetus is a human life and thus a woman has a right to choose to get rid of that nuisance organ produced by sex with a male. Senator Reid has made no bones about it – he will block any Life Begins at Conception legislation in the Senate.

Legislatively Overturning Roe v. Wade with a Life at Conception Act

A Frontal Assault on Roe v. Wade’s Protection of Abortion-on-Demand

 

 

By National Pro-Life Alliance

 

For more than thirty years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.

  

The result has been a brutal holocaust that has claimed the lives of more than 55 million innocent and helpless unborn children in America.

  

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.

   

As a result, many pro-lifers resigned themselves to protecting a life here and there — passing laws which slightly regulate abortion in the most outrageous cases. Others tiptoed around the Supreme Court, hoping they wouldn’t be offended.

 

Life at Conception Act Follows the High Court’s Instructions by Defining When Life Begins

   

Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.

   

Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion by using the Constitution instead of amending it.

   

A simple majority vote in both houses of Congress is all that is needed to pass a Life at Conception Act as opposed to the two-thirds required to add a Constitutional amendment.

   

When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.

   

Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster. But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a Constitutional right.

   

Instead the Supreme Court said:

 

“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”

 

Life at Conception Act Would Dismantle Roe Using the Supreme Court’s Own Language

   

Then the High Court made a key admission:

 

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e. “Roe” who sought the abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

   

That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.

   

A Life at Conception Act changes the focus of the abortion debate. It takes the Supreme Court out of the equation and places responsibility squarely on the shoulders of the elected representatives who, unlike life term judges, must respond to grass-roots pressure.

  

National Pro-Life Alliance members have led the fight to end abortion-on-demand by passing a Life at Conception Act. They have generated over 1.5 million petitions to Congress to date urging lawmakers to cosponsor and fight for passage of a Life at Conception Act.

 

Fight to Overturn Roe v. Wade Heats Up in Congress

   

Those continued efforts have led to ever-increasing support for a Life at Conception Act in Congress. In the 112th Session of Congress, Pro-life Members of Congress introduced Life at Conception Acts – in both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

   

Thanks to the grassroots lobbying of National Pro-Life Alliance members, the Life at Conception Act was introduced with an all time record number of cosponsors, in both houses. And NPLA members will continue to hold the politicians accountable, pushing for an up or down vote on a Life at Conception Act.

   

In the U.S. Senate, pro-life floor leader Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) introduced the Life at Conception Act, S. 91.

   

Behind the two Life at Conception Act bills in the House are Congressman Duncan D. Hunter (R-CA) and Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA). By introducing H.R. 374, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, the son of former Life at Conception Act sponsor Duncan L. Hunter, is following in his father’s footsteps.

   

Hunter serves as the Representative of the 52nd Congressional District of California, the post held by his father prior to his retirement in 2007.

   

Congressman Paul Broun, the author of H.R. 212, is a former medical doctor who entered the political arena in 2007.

   

Congressman Broun has since sought to use his medical expertise to legally establish the scientific fact that conception marks the creation of a genetically unique human being, who should be guaranteed Constitutional protection under the 14th Amendment.

   

An up or down vote on the Life at Conception Act will put politicians on record either for or against ending abortion-on-demand.

  

Pro-lifers are urged to call (202) 224-3121 and insist that their Congressmen cosponsor H.R. 374 and H.R. 212, and that their Senators cosponsor S. 91 today…

Legislatively Overturning Roe v. Wade with a Life at Conception Act

 

National Pro-Life Alliance Homepage

 

NPLA Mission:

 

Because every human life is precious in the eyes of God, and science and common sense dictate that life begins at conception, it is clear that abortion is the wanton taking of human life and no truly great nation can allow this practice to take place.

   

Ever since the dreadful Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, more than 55 million precious unborn babies have lost their lives.

   

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s members, staff and volunteers are dedicated to halting this slaughter once and for all. And despite the many remaining obstacles, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
