14th Amendment, U.S.
Many of us take it for granted and feel we are entitled to certain basic
inalienable rights. And
we ARE afforded these rights (as per the 14th Amendment to the
Constitution). But there are many who are
incapable, for a variety of reasons, of defending themselves against man-made
"laws" that defy the dignity that God intends for them to have.
They are vulnerable to the "freedom of choice" that others
claim to have, who step on the defenseless for their own purposes.
think that many people who say they are "pro-choice" don't realize
what that means. Essentially,
according to current law, a woman has a RIGHT TO KILL the infant in her womb FOR
ANY REASON. Our current laws support
is legislation in Congress which was introduced on January 24, 2017 (S.231) entitled the "Life at Conception Act". There's
a related bill in the House of Representatives (H.R.681).
The purpose of the bill is "to implement equal protection under the
14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States for the right to life of each born and preborn human person".
term "human person" is defined as "each
member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment
of fertilization or cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of
the human species comes into being".
Alexander Mooney (R-WV) made these opening remarks to Congress on January 24,
am honored to be the lead sponsor of the Life at Conception Act, which
simply defines human life as beginning at the moment of conception. As a
result, unborn babies are entitled to legal protection under the
Constitution. We had a record number of original cosponsors this past
Congress, and I pray this bill will pass Congress swiftly. I believe
that we have a moral obligation to protect the unborn at every stage of
Life at Conception Act is a crucial part of the long-term battle to
protect the unborn. It started 44 years ago to the week, in 1973 in the
Roe v. Wade decision when the Supreme Court asserted that, because the
beginning of life is not legally defined by Congress, it is up for
interpretation by the court. The Life at Conception Act simply fills
that gap and defines that human life begins at the moment of conception.
Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, recently restated publicly his
belief that human life begins at conception. There is bipartisan
agreement on this issue. It is important for Congress to define human
life because the unborn are the most helpless among us. They need us to
have enough courage to step up and protect them.
bill also sets a standard for promoting and encouraging a culture of
life. If enacted, it would simply affirm what we all know in our hearts
and minds to be true: that unborn babies deserve our protection.
year, the Life at Conception Act had 146 cosponsors in the U.S. House of
Representatives... I hope that more Representatives will join me in
promoting respect and protection for all human life.
I continue to be guided by my faith and values. I look forward to
working with my colleagues to defend the innocent and give voice to the
legislatively defining life as beginning at the moment of conception,
the Life at Conception Act provides all human life with the protection
of the 14th Amendment to the
United States Constitution, which protects "life, liberty and
Thanks to advances in technology, we are now able to see the
developing fetus in its earliest stages via 3D ultrasound.
This technology wasn't available when Roe v. Wade made abortions legal
in 1974. If this technology had been available in 1974, do you think there would
have been any doubt as to the humanity of the infant in the womb?
the stages of fetal development here:
When the Life at Conception Act passes, we can finally see an end to 44 years of
deliberate death and destruction of innocent human lives!
know, someone is going to say, but what about the victims of rape?
Shouldn't they be allowed to abort this child who was not created out
of love? My heart is very heavy for
women who experience this tragic act. It
happens to far too many women. I am
praying that women who conceive a child after being exposed to the violence of a
rape crime will turn to the Lord God, Who will comfort them throughout their
ordeal. God promises to always be
not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will
strengthen you, I will help you." (Isaiah 41:10)
IS IMPERATIVE THAT OUR SOCIETY SUPPORT VICTIMS OF RAPE. This includes the
physical, psychological and financial support they need. It includes prenatal
care and postnatal care, and legal resources to help them place their babies up
for adoption, if they choose to do so.
VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE
babies in the womb who are killed in vehicular accidents or as a result of
violence to the mother. Several
states have laws that add a second murder charge... one for the mother and one
for the unborn child.
According to data published by the National Right to Life Committee in 2014, 29
states have homicide laws that recognize unborn children as victims in any stage
of fetal development. 8 states
recognize the unborn as victims after a specified period (eight weeks or at the
stage of viability). Interestingly,
ONLY ONE STATE (TEXAS) added this disclaimer:
law does not apply to "conduct committed by the mother of the unborn child"
or to "a lawful medical procedure performed by a physician or other licensed
health care provider with the requisite consent."
currently state legislation pending in NJ which will REDUCE the number of
abortions, by banning them after 20 weeks. According
to National Pro-Life
Alliance, "Sadly, this judicial tyranny has caused many pro-life
organizations to limit themselves to pressing for limited laws to slightly
control abortion in the more outrageous cases, hoping not to offend the courts.
But by passing the Sanctity of Life Act, Congress can finally put an end
to this judicial tyranny once and for all."
With these limited laws, only a portion of the unborn will be saved. Many consider this to be a victory but it is an unpalatable compromise and by no means the
goal. My concern is that it is not
setting the bar high enough... Since
God is on our side, shouldn't we strive to save ALL babies in the womb?
Don't you think that that would be more acceptable and pleasing to God?
we have faith, then nothing can stop our God, Who is Almighty and powerful. We
know that God can answer our prayers beyond our expectations. We should
persevere in prayer (Romans 12:12). If
we all contact our Congress Representatives and and spread the word to everyone we know encouraging them to do the same, we CAN make the Life at Conception Act
