WHEREAS: Because of Roe v. Wade, millions of 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 guarnteed
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, gentically neither "part" of either parent,
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 unborn children are

Persons entitled to constitutional protection, will rescue
millions of unborn children from dying through

THEREFORE: I urge you to cast every vote for a Life at Conception Act, and

to do everything possible to bring it to a full vote in the U.S.
House and Senate in this session of Congress.
