Life at Conception Act Petition Proposed, by John Hull

COMMENTARY | U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Wis., and the National Pro-Life Alliance are circulating a petition in an effort to put an end to the atrocities legalized by Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that allows for abortion on demand.

The petition urges your local senators and representatives to vote in favor of a Life at Conception Act that would put a stop to convenience abortions, saving almost 4,000 babies every day. The act would affirm the life of the unborn child and bring to him or her the rights and protections of the U.S. Constitution.

According to the introduction by Dr. Paul, “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.'”

In his opinion on Roe, former Justice Harry Blackmun wrote, “In support of this, they outline at length and in detail the well-known facts of fetal development. 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 [14th] Amendment. The appellant conceded as much on reargument.”

The left claims women have the right to abortion on demand, for any reason, as shown in a newsletter of left-wing organization, The Supreme Court, however, did not support this claim.

Blackmun’s colleague, Justice Warren Burger, in his concurrence wrote, “Plainly, the Court today rejects any claim that the Constitution requires abortions on demand.”

This abhorrent decision, allowing for abortion in the first trimester, led directly to the undeniable infanticide permitted by partial birth abortion.

In one method of early term abortion, as described by a procedure called Dilation & Curettage (D&C), a baby is barbarically torn limb from limb. This method is used up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Another procedure involves inserting forceps into the womb and crushing and tearing body parts away from the child. This procedure is used up to 18 weeks of pregnancy.

By 9 weeks the baby can feel light touch and commonly curls his/her toes (all 10 are formed by now) or otherwise reacts to the light touch, as shown by the Endowment for Human Development. If they can feel a light touch and react, it stands to reason they can also feel themselves being torn apart at 9 weeks.

Abortions are performed as late as the last 3 months of pregnancy by methods such as ramming scissors into the viable child’s skull while partially exposed and sucking out the brain with a vacuum tube.

It is time to put an end to killing babies as a form of birth control simply because the parents were irresponsible. We have devolved into a culture where personal responsibility is a foreign concept. Because of this, millions of innocent lives are brutally and agonizingly terminated as a matter of convenience.

I signed the petition and hope you will, too.
