ignored my last two letters to you regarding the Life at Conception Act (S.231
I have written many letters to politicians regarding my views on various issues,
yet this is the first issue which has seemed to paralyze my representatives into
silence, and inaction...
dismiss my concerns as being ultra-conservative and based on a morality grounded
in my Christian faith, I want to point out to you that this is not merely a
religious issue, and it should not be utilized as a political issue. In fact,
there are more than six million pro-lifers in the
who aren't affiliated with religion. Therefore, rather than assuming that I'm
in the minority, be assured that I have plenty of company from others who agree
that abortion is the taking of a human life, a life that deserves protection,
even protection, apparently, from it's own mother. http://www.secularprolife.org/six-million
because a woman has a right to do what she wants with her own body, does not
imply that she has the right to step on the rights of the fetus growing within
I urge you
to read a well-researched and objective scientific paper by Maureen Condic, PhD,
"When Does Human Life Begin? The
Scientific Evidence and Terminology Revisited".
The Supreme Court never
declared 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...
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,
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."
Constitution clearly guarantees the right to life (14th Amendment); now it needs
to be enforced.
you come back at me with the usual, non-committal and carefully crafted
responses, let me give you 10 counter-responses:
It's time to put an end to the murder of
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
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 Supreme Court acknowledged that they need to be told who the law counts as
persons, I urge you to cast your vote for the Life at Conception Act.
Congress to delay no further regarding this legislation but take immediate
action to vote on and pass this bill. Please
do the right thing and join the growing number of supporters and sponsors of
this bill. We can no longer ignore
the rights of the unborn, who have done nothing to deserve to die.
