For decades, social conservatives have fought for the overturning of Roe v. Wade, believing it enables the murder of innocent life. I join this chorus of conservatives who call for the protection of the preborn, but I have a question for those who oppose us. Why does any freedom-loving American support the 1973 decision in Roe? Not only does this flawed U.S. Supreme Court decision destroy innocent life, but with it the very foundations of our free society.
For both faith-based and small government conservatives (whom I hope are the same folks), this is an issue of national consequence. In fact, recently, Texas Governor Rick Perry, a man respected by TEA Party and social conservatives, came-out in favor of a Constitutional amendment which would prohibit the practice of abortion in America. He understands something I believe is crucial for conservatives to comprehend: Roe v. Wade is not only a decree of death to millions, but it is judicial fiat in its filthiest form.
The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution clearly protects the natural, unalienable rights of all American citizens. This Amendment was ratified in 1868, and its definition of personhood was based on a report by the American Medical Association issued in 1859. This AMA report states, emphatically, that life begins at conception. So, even if supporters of abortion-on-demand try and twist science to support their conclusions, they still have a legal problem, assuming a future Supreme Court develops a moral spine.
The 1973 U.S. Supreme Court, and all subsequent courts that have upheld Roe, have ignored the will of the people, instead choosing to impose their will on us all. This is judicial activism; whereby the courts have stolen power from the states and from the people, and have granted themselves the power to make policy. In short, they have usurped the role of the legislative branch to promote their agenda of death.
To roll-back this radical power grab of an activist judiciary, I support a Constitutional Amendment which will ban the practice of abortion in all 50 states. The only way to preserve the integrity of the States, the power of the people and the personhood of the preborn is for the American People, through their representatives and state legislatures, to ratify a 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution to cut-off abortion in this Country.
Let’s end uninterrupted evil and judicial abuse of power. Let’s begin the movement to pass a Constitutional amendment to end abortion in America.
