Four thousand babies are aborted each day in the United States of America which equals 1,460,000 children that are aborted every years.
As defenders of all human life; we firmly resolve to end abortion. The ratification of the Life at Conception Act is a means to bring us closer to ending the holocaust of the most innocent citizens of our nation.
If Congress affirms the personhood of every unborn children, the Supreme Court must protect them through the 14th Amendment. The United States Consitution explicitly states "nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property."
The United States Supreme Court - unknowledgeable about the preamble of the Constitution - needs to be instructed on the definition of 'personhood'
The Preamble declares that the purpose of the Constitution is "to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."
The United States Congress needs to tell the Supreme Court who the law counts as persons!
The Congress of the United States needs to hear the voice of the citizenry who understand that "posterity" includes the unborn!
Each signature of a pro-life citizen boldly declares to the Senators and Congressment that the constitutents of their respective states or congressional districts support the full protection of the unborn under the law. An overwhelming number of American citizens are opposed to the current abortion-on-demand practice.
Hence, Senators and Congressmen must take a stand for the protection of unborn life!
It is time for pro-life citizen advocates to exercise the God given liberty of 'petition of redress of grivances' for which the Founders of our nation pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.
Nine men and women in the United States Supreme Court have played God with the lives of the most innocent human life for thirty-nine years.
56 million babies have been condemned to a painful death without trial through aribitrary relative law for merely being an 'inconvenient' burden.
Despite the principal of law secured to the American people through the ninth and tenth amendments of the United States Constitution; the United States Supreme Court overturned an overwhelming number of state laws protecting human life thus forcing abortion-on-demand upon the American citizenry.
The landmark decision of Roe v. Wade in the year of 1973 continues to violate the sanctity of human life.
The pro-life movement has felt limited in protecting life by passing some laws which slightly control abortion in outrageous cases.
It is time that pro-life advocate stands firm and no longer be intimidated by the Supreme Court. The time is long past due that we no longer care if the Supreme Court is offended by the valiant stand to protect human life.
Pro-life advocate shall no longer grovel before a court composed of finite limited imperfect men and women who make arbitrary relative decisions.
The Life at Conception Act when passed into law would utlize the ruling of the Supreme Court in the Roe v. Wade decision. Abortion of demand can be abolished by utilizing the Constitution instead of attempting to amend the document.
We shall continue to exercise the liberty to petition our Senators and Congressmen for redress of our grievances!
Members of the national media talk of the impact of economic issues upon elections which were held in the past. The national media ignors how well Pro-life candidates did at the election polls.
Pro-life advocates must begin to understand that not a few pro-life candidates were elected to Congress and an overwhelming majority of Americans are opposed to abortion-on-demand!
Therefore, every member of Congress must be put on record.
Pro-life advocates must break through the staunch well entrenched opposition which clings to abortion-on-demand.
The Life at Conception Act is the vanguard invasion upon the bastions which continue to support abortion-on-demand.
A vote for the Life at Conception Act is a necessary preliminary slavo directed to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The Life at Conception Act affirms that unborn children are 'persons' protected by law. Unborn children - "our posterity" - are 'persons' of which the 14th Amendment to the Constitution addresses and therefore are entitled to legal protection under the law.
This admission of the high court in the Roe v. Wade decision is the Achilles' heal which will cause the case for the continued legalization of abortion to collapse.
Furthermore, the Preamble of the United States Constitution declares:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
"We the People of the United States, in Order to .....secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..."
In the First Edition of An American Dictionary of the English Language; Noah Webster defined posterity as:
1. Decendents; children, children's children, &c. indefinitely; the race that proceeds from a progenitor. The whole human race are the posterity of Adam. 2. In a general sense, succeeding generations; opposed to ancestory. 'To the unhappy that unjustly bleed, Heav'n gives posterity t' avenge the deed. Pope
Notice the quotation from Pope used by Noah Webster to illuminate the meaning of posterity.
"To the unhappy that unjustly bleed, Heav'n gives posterity t' avenge the deed."
The Supreme Court delivered the infamous Roe v. Wade decision based on an undefined spurious 'right of privacy' which the high court 'discovered' in 'emanations' of 'penumbrae' of the United States Constitution.
Webster defines emanation as:
"Emanation" The act of flowing or proceeding from a fountain-head or orgin. 2. That which issues, flows or proceeds from any source, substance or body; efflux; effluvium. Light is an emanation from the sun; wisdom, from God; the authority of laws, from the supreme power.
"Penumbrae" An area in which something exists to a lesser or uncertain degree: "The First Amendment has a penumbra where privacy is protected from governmental intrusion" (Joseph A. Califano, Jr.)
The Roe v. Wade decision is a constitutional disaster in essence related to the Dred Scott Decision in which men, women, and children of the black race were legally considered to be property.
One must understand that the Supreme Court never declared that abortion itself was a constitutional right!
The United States Supreme Court declared:
"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."
The Supreme Court then admitted this key principle:
"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 14th Amendment of the United States is perfectly clear in this regard:
". . . 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 declares:
"Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
Hence, Congress has the power through the Life at Conception Act to enforce the provisions of the 14th Amendment.
The simple, logical, ethically moral legislation will not become law without verbal conflict and opposition.
The assistance of the individual patriot is critical; one's personal signature is of great value and significance.
The American Revolution was a long bitter fight for independence. Consequently, the fight to defend and protect the unborn will be tough and costly. We can win for Truth is with us!
A massive, national, grass-roots campaign during the current session of Congress will have positive results.
As a pro-life activist, public pressure on Democrat and Republican politicians elected on pro-life platforms will be put in the position to fulfill the campaign promises they made to their respective constituents. Ultimately they will pass the bill into law or be removed from political office through the lawful means of election.
Even if the Life at Conception Act isn't passed into law; public attention upon radical abortionists will result in the defeat of pro-abortion radicals during the next election.
Furthermore, the citizens of the United States will know explicitly which of our Senators and members of the House are advocates of the pro-life position to protect unborn children. There will be no opportunity to hide in the presumed 'more important legislation' which they would have us believe they are engaged in conducting.
The first salvo toward victory in America is for the individual prolife citizen to sign the petition.
A key ingredient in the plan of the National Pro-Life Alliance is to pass the Life at Conception Act. It is time to organize!
As Rand Paul proclaims:
"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."
If Pro-life advocates mail letters and utilize the technologies of the Internet including e-mail; the cost to produce a million petitions will be reduced.
A flood of letters to the editors of newspapers and magazine cannot be ignored. Television, radio, and newspapers desire to maintain the illusion of being relavent and on the cutting edge of news as it happens.
In order to maintain that illusion of perception; they cannot continue to ignore the voice of a vast majority of Americans who are opposed to abortion-on-demand. They will be seen by an informed audience as being irrelevant and out of touch with contemporary issues!
As Pro-life advocates; we cannot proceed to casually watch the slaughter of the most innocent members of our society.
The goal of the National Pro-life Alliance is to deliver a million petitions to the House and Senate which support the Life at Conception Act.
It is of crucial importance to have the full weight of an inteligent well informed public which firmly supports the pro-life position when the bill is debated on the floor of the House and Senate.
I feel confident that the folks at National Pro-Life Alliance can gather those one million petitions.
A full scale national campaign is necessary to pass the Life at Conception Act to save the lives of millions of babies throughout the 21st Century.
The United Nations declared 1979 as the "International Year of the Child" and it is time that "our posterity" are included in the definition of children through affirmation.
The signature of an individual citizen contribute to reversing the uncompassionate Roe v. Wade decision that disregards the sanctity of human life.
It is time to dramtically awaken the sleeping politicians of both houses of Congress to the barbarour pro-life policies which occur in America every minute of the day.
If Congress declares that unborn children are 'persons' under the law, the constitutinal case for abortion-on-demand collapses.
It is of critical importance to get Congress to vote on the Life at Conception Act.
Be valiant, be courageous for the glory of God and the protection of children whom He has created in his image.
Petition is the first critical step in the fight to end abortion. The inalienable rights of freedom of speech, press, assembly and freedom of religion must be utilized wisely in order to fulfill God's purpose in our time.
Life at Conception Act Petition to:
Your U.S. Senators and Representative
Whereas: Because of Roe v. Wade, more than 56 million unborn children have died through abortion; and
Whereas: In Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court declared it could not resolve "the difficult question of when life begins" – and on the basis of this unresolved question, declared a new "right to abortion" based on a "right of privacy"; and
Whereas: The 14th Amendment to the Constitution 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 law"; and
Whereas: In Roe, the Supreme Court admitted: "If . . . personhood [for the unborn] is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [Fourteenth] Amendment..." (Roe v. Wade [410 US 113 at 156-7]); and
Whereas: Science is clear that human life begins at conception when a new human being is formed; and
Whereas: The American people oppose abortion-on-demand and want innocent human life to be protected especially when it is most defenseless; and
Whereas: It belongs to Congress to resolve the question the Supreme Court said IT cannot resolve; and
Whereas: A Life at Conception Act, by declaring that unborn children are persons legally entitled to constitutional protection, will rescue millions of unborn children from dying by abortion-on-demand;
Therefore: I urge you to cosponsor and cast every vote for a Life at Conception Act, and to do everything necessary to win ultimate passage in the United States Congress.
This declaration is based upon a letter which I received from Rand Paul in which I as a pro-life advocate chose to further illuminate the position concerning the Life at Conception Act.
