Here’s Hoping Capital Crime Case Ends Roe v. Wade

Jessie Phillips murdered Erica Droze Phillips & unborn baby in 2009

 

The Personhood argument against baby-killing abortion has arisen in Alabama within the merits of a capital crime of a husband murdering his pregnant wife:

 

In the case, [Jesse] Phillips was charged with the murders of his wife and unborn child, and sentenced to be executed. The state Supreme Court affirmed the sentence, rejecting claims that Phillips could not be sentenced for the unborn child’s death because the child was not a “person.” (WND article below)

 

This is a State Supreme Court ruling and not a Federal Court ruling. I will be surprised if the Alabama State Supreme Court does not make an appearance in Federal Court. Think of the irony as a bunch of Leftist baby-killing supporters rage that a convicted murderer was not only convicted of murdering his wife but also convicted of killing his unborn child.

 

I can hardly wait to see how the Left/Democrats spin an anti-Personhood argument when a person removes TWO lives from among the living. Why did Jessie Phillips kill his wife Erica Phillips?

 

… A jury in June 2012 found him guilty and put him on death row for the slaying, which took place at Lakeside Car Wash on Alabama 69 in Guntersville.

 

Court documents indicate that Phillips became angry because his wife had not changed the wet diaper of their young daughter. He subsequently shot Erica Phillips in the back of the head, leaving her body lying in one of the car wash bays; the 23-year-old died early the next morning at Huntsville Hospital.

 

Both of the couple’s children were present when the shooting occurred, as were two of Erica Phillips’ brothers. Jessie Phillips fled the scene without the children.

 

He later turned himself in for the murder and, in interviews with police, admitted knowing his wife was eight weeks pregnant at the time he shot her.  (Alabama man sentenced to death for 2nd time in pregnant wife’s murder; By Crystal Bonvillian; AL.com; 2/12/16)

 

There is absolutely zero doubt that Jessie Phillips is a heinous murderer. The Left is stuck with the conundrum of defending a wife-killer to perpetuate the heinous ideology that a woman has more rights over her body than an unborn life has a right to live.

 

The success of Personhood essentially boils down to this question: When does a life in a woman’s womb become a person?

 

The divide then becomes religious faith versus secularism. A secularist-minded person will look at biological criteria while a person of religious faith – particularly Christian faith – examines the criteria that life proceeds from God Almighty.

 

As to faith here is some valid thinking from the “Founding Charter for Personhood Alliance”:

 

WHEREAS, the Bible affirms the personhood, sanctity, dignity and value of every human being from the moment of our individual creation, as evidenced by the doctrine of Imago Dei and through the marital union of a man and woman (Gen 1:26-28), our being known by God even before being formed in the womb (Jer 1:5), the incarnation of Christ (Luke 1-2), and the sacrifice of Christ to atone for the sins of humanity and restore fellowship between God and man (Rom. 5:12-21);

 

The significant Biblical Scriptures in the above Personhood Charter are in order of usage are:

 

Genesis 1:26-28 (NKJV)

 

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over [a]all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that [b]moves on the earth.”

 

Jeremiah 1:4-5 (NKJV)

 

Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:

 

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified[a] you;
[b]ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

 

[It stands to reason if God formed the Prophet Jeremiah in his mother’s womb, He formed YOU in your mother’s womb and He formed the entire human race in their mother’s womb.]

 

Luke Chapter one and two are the birth of Jesus Christ story. I am not going to quote the entirety of those two chapters. But to signify the importance of God in the birth process, here are some select quotes:

 

Luke 1: 26-33, 35; 2: 10-12, 15-16 (NKJV)

 

1 26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; [a]blessed are you among women!”

29 But [b]when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

 

35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

 

2 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a [a]manger.”

 

15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.

 

Romans 5: 12-21 (NKJV)

 

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the [a]offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. 16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many [b]offenses resulted in justification. 17 For if by the one man’s [c]offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

18 Therefore, as through [d]one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one[e] Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

I gotta tell ya … For me all arguments using biology to determine life before birth are irrelevant in favor of the Redemptive view of God for humankind through Jesus Christ the Savior.

 

Jessie Phillips took two lives and is being held accountable according to the laws of the State of Alabama. BUT those lives removed from the living – Erica Droze Phillips and her unborn child – were and are certified by God Almighty.

STATE SUPREME COURT: ROE V. WADE ‘PATENTLY ILLOGICAL’

Shocking decision declares unborn baby is ‘a person’

 

By Bob Unruh

October 19, 2018

WND

 

Alabama State Justice Tom Parker

 

The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled that an unborn baby is a “person” under the law, and, consequently, the death of that person can be punished with execution.

 

Further, in a special concurrence, Justice Tom Parker called on the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that created a “right” to abortion.

 

“I write specially to expound upon the principles presented in the main opinion and to note the continued legal anomaly and logical fallacy that is Roe v. Wade,” he said. “I urge the United States Supreme Court to overrule this increasingly isolated exception to the rights of unborn children.”

 

Parker affirmed the Alabama court’s rationale that “unborn children are persons entitled to the full and equal protection of the law.”

 

He asserted Roe v. Wade is “without historical or constitutional support, carved out an exception to the rights of unborn children and prohibited states from recognizing an unborn child’s inalienable right to life when that right conflicts with a woman’s ‘right’ to abortion.”

 

“This judicially created exception of Roe is an aberration to the natural law … and common law of the states,” Parker said.

 

He noted the Alabama court’s opinion stated the “obvious truth that unborn children are people and thus entitled to the full protection of the law” in its decision to reject Jessie Phillips’ arguments “that the unborn child he murdered, Baby Doe, was not a ‘person’ under Alabama law.”

 

In the case, Phillips was charged with the murders of his wife and unborn child, and sentenced to be executed. The state Supreme Court affirmed the sentence, rejecting claims that Phillips could not be sentenced for the unborn child’s death because the child was not a “person.”

 

The fault in the Roe decision was cited by Justice Harry Blackmun, who wrote the majority opinion.

 

He said the justices didn’t have the scientific evidence to determine if an unborn baby is a person, but “personhood” is the foundation of the case.

 

Blackmun wrote: “(If the) suggestion of personhood [of the preborn] is established, the [abortion rights] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

 

The Alabama ruling is not the only one to point out to the U.S. Supreme Court that Roe was wrongly decided.

 

In August, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down an Alabama law banning the gruesome, second-trimester abortion procedure in which limbs are removed from a baby’s body in the womb.

 

At the time, Chief Judge Ed Carnes lamented in his opinion that he was bound by U.S. Supreme Court precedent to rule against the state, writing that “dismemberment” is the best description of the procedure, which clinically is known as dilation and extraction.

 

“In our judicial system, there is only one Supreme Court, and we are not it,” he wrote, calling the high court’s history of abortion rulings an “aberration” of constitutional law.

 

And Judge Joel Dubina wrote separately to express his agreement with Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia in Gonzales v. Carhart in which Thomas wrote, “I write separately to reiterate my view that the Court’s abortion jurisprudence,” including in Planned Parenthood v. Casey and Roe v. Wade, “has no basis in the Constitution.”

 

“The problem I have, as noted in the Chief Judge’s opinion, is that I am not on the Supreme Court, and as a federal appellate judge, I am bound by my oath to follow all of the Supreme Court’s precedents, whether I agree with them or not,” Dubina wrote.

 

The opinion had no use for the politically correct language of “choice” and “women’s rights.”

 

“This case involves a method of abortion that is clinically referred to as Dilation and Evacuation (D & E). Or dismemberment abortion, as the state less clinically calls it. That name is more accurate because the method involves tearing apart and extracting piece-by-piece from the uterus what was until then a living unborn child,” he wrote.

 

And a year ago, eight members of the Alabama Supreme Court revived a wrongful death claim against a physician even though the life that was lost was that of a “pre-viable” unborn child.

 

That ruling set the state in direct conflict with the Roe v. Wade decision.

 

The Alabama judges at the time criticized the Roe decision’s “incoherent standard” of viability.

 

The newest opinion notes that Alabama law states an unborn child is a person under the state’s intentional murder statute.

 

According to Liberty Counsel, “Justice Parker wrote separately to emphasize how broadly and consistently the law and judicial decisions in Alabama and around the country protect the rights of unborn children. This, Justice Parker said, contrasts with ‘the continued legal anomaly and logical fallacy that is Roe v. Wade.’”

 

In his opinion, Parker called on the Supreme Court to act: “It is my hope and prayer that the United States Supreme Court will take note of the crescendoing chorus of the laws of the states in which unborn children are given full legal protection and allow the states to recognize and defend the inalienable right to life possessed by every unborn child, even when that right must trump the ‘right’ of a woman to obtain an abortion.”

 

He said that by ensuring broad legal protections for unborn children, including under Alabama’s capital murder statutes, “we affirm once again that unborn children are persons with value and dignity equal to that of all persons.”

 

“There is a growing chorus of voices urging the Supreme Court to overrule its abortion decisions,” said Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver. “The Supreme Court has created a constitutional aberration and caused incalculable harm by its abortion decisions. In 1992, Justice Kennedy voted with the majority to overrule Roe v. Wade, and then flipped his vote 30 days before the opinion was released to uphold Roe. It is time to correct course and overrule this horrible chapter in American and Supreme Court history.”

 

He continued: “We applaud Justice Tom Parker in calling on the Supreme Court to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision and once again protect precious children, women, and families. Abortion is simply a euphemism created by activists to soften what it really is: the murder of innocent unborn children.

 

“We must stop this human genocide. We must demand that the Supreme Court undo the horrendous ruling and make the womb a safe place again in America. As we hear about the horrible descriptions of the dismemberment of Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi, every breathing person naturally shutters. Yet, every day in America, helpless, preborn children are dismembered while they are still alive. We too must shutter at this horrible act and stop it.”

 

Parker is currently an associate justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and is running for the position of chief justice. Parker won the primary election on June 5, 2018.

 

In his new concurrence, Parker said a “person is a person, regardless of age, physical development, or location.”

 

“Baby Doe had just as much a right to life as did [mother] Erica Phillips. … Phillips was sentenced to death for the murder of two persons; Erica and Baby Doe were equally persons.”

 

He added: “In spite of voluminous state laws recognizing that the lives of unborn children are increasingly entitled to full legal protection, the isolated Roe exception stubbornly endures. … Some liberal justices on the United States Supreme Court adamantly defend the isolated Roe exception. I have written extensively explaining why the Roe exception lacks legal foundation and is patently illogical.”

 

The ruling, he said, “stands as an indictment against the United States Supreme Court.”

 

The only way it can continue, he said, is if the U.S. Supreme Court justices “insist, against all scientific evidence and reason, that unborn children are not human.”

Yurki Shares AFA & NPLA Emails


Yurki1000 sent a cross post to a Stand4Life email that was supportive David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt who are being prosecuted in California for exposing Planned Parenthood use of live birth killing of babies to use their body parts for research.

 

Since then Yurki1000 has commented twice on the post.

 

The first comment is AFA alert on boycotting Target on their support for Transgender bathroom rights and homosexual marriage.

 

The last comment is a Pro-Life issue sent out by NPLA. The issue an unborn child, two-days before his due date, was killed by a drunk driver. There was no prosecution because the baby was not considered a person. Hence the NPLA supports the Life at Conception Act. An unborn child is as much a person as any man or woman.

 

Below are two comment he has posted to date.

Thanks John 😊

 

AFA sends me email:

 

– Dear Jyrki,

 

In April 2016, Target Corporation announced its stores would begin allowing men free access to the same restrooms and changing rooms as little girls. American Family Association immediately launched a boycott Target pledge which has garnered nearly 1.4 million signatures.

 

Target’s decision is unacceptable for families, and their dangerous and misguided policy continues to put women and children in harm’s way.

 

It is urgent the Target boycott reach 1.5 million signers by the end of April. At that point, I will personally return to Minneapolis with an additional 500,000 names. I will then discuss how Target can invite 1.5 million AFA supporters back to their stores by having a common sense bathroom and dressing room policy that links use of these rooms to a person’s biological sex.

 

Help us reach the 1.5 million signature mark.

 

If you haven’t signed the boycott pledge, please sign it today!

 

If you have signed the pledge, please forward this email to your family and friends.

 

Most important: Share this information with your Sunday School class and encourage them to sign the pledge at http://www.afa.net/target.

 

If our mission resonates with you, please consider supporting our work financially with a tax-deductible donation. The easiest way to do that is through online giving. It is easy to use, and most of all, it is secure.

From NPLA:

 

– Dear Jyrki,

 

Little Brady Surovik was the long awaited 8 pound 2 oz. child of Heather Surovik, but tragically little Brady’s life was suddenly snuffed out by a drunk driver in Colorado on July 5th, 2012.

 

Under Colorado law the drunk driver would normally be charged with vehicular homicide.

 

Yet Colorado prosecutors refused to bring any charges against the driver.

 

Why you ask?

 

You see Brady was two days away from birth.

 

Colorado state law prevented charging the drunk driver because the law stated Brady was not yet “a person.”

 

For the lack of a mere two days, the drunk driver literally got away scot-free.

 

You and I know there is no difference between an unborn and a born baby; just differences in size and weight.

 

Though this drunk driver may have got away with taking one innocent life; abortionists have been getting away with taking over a million lives every year for 44 years.

 

Of course laws against drunk driving will never completely end the slaughter on the highways. But together you and I can end the long lived slaughter that is abortion.

 

That is why your National Pro-Life Alliance is committed to passing a Life at Conception Act in Congress to overturn Roe v. Wade and define that life begins at conception.

 

Again I thank you for all you do.

 

For Life,
Martin Fox, President

A Baby is a Person


Respect Life All Ages

Inspired by Jay DePalmo – ‘By the Roots’

John R. Houk

© October 14, 2014

 

This is an awesome Christian essay/sermon sent to me via email through the Alumni connection where I also attended. Jay writes about seeds taking root. The application is to sin that take root in a person by giving yourself permission. The permission may begin as a non-effective harmless seed but if the seed takes root, then the longer the weed grows the deeper its roots grow absorbing nutrients to strangle out the good plants in one’s life. The deeper the roots the more difficult it is to pull out that strangling weed.

 

Jay is writing about character choices a young person might choose that can become harmful. However, what got my attention is where Jay DePalmo works when he is not in direct service for the Lord. According to the info at the end of the essay sent by the alumnus, Jay works in a managerial position for Hobby Lobby. The title provided in the bio is VP of “Hobby Lobby Manufacturing”.

 

As a Conservative political blogger this piqued my interest because Hobby Lobby took on the Obama Administration pertaining to Religious Freedom and the mandate for employers to provide insurance for forms of birth control that a Biblical Christian would find to be ungodly. Those forms of birth control relate to taking an unborn baby’s life (cough murder) for no other reason than birth control.

 

Hobby Lobby stood up to the Obama Administration and won at the Supreme Court meaning Hobby Lobby and like-mind Christian owners’ of business do not have to support baby killing in the name of a woman’s choice. A child’s choice – especially an infant that is born or unborn – has to be protected by the rule of law. An unborn baby may be sustained by a woman however it is a separate life apart from any harmful choices made by a woman sustaining that separate life.

 

The alumni email did not provide a date that as to when Jay DePalmo wrote this astounding essay on the roots of spiritual weeds in one’s life. However thanks to Google I found the same essay posted by Debbie Kinsey of Management Ministries. The date of that post is October 6, 2014.

My wife and I serve our local church as Youth Pastors. A while back we took the youth to a local park for a scavenger hunt. One of the things the teens had to bring back to us was a weed that had been pulled out of the ground with all of its roots still attached. As I was watching the young people pull at the weeds I was getting a good laugh. They struggled and struggled to get a weed to come up intact and whole. I told them “You have to go for the smaller ones; they are easier to get out.”

 

This was an object lesson for the youth. We had been teaching on the subject of ‘Roots’. The main thing we wanted the teenagers to learn is that once something takes root, it becomes difficult to remove. The more it grows and develops, the more effort it takes to get rid of it. The teenagers were just not strong enough to up root the mature weeds.

 

Believe it or not, the Bible has much to say about seeds, harvest, fruit, and roots. When Jesus cursed the fig tree in Mark chapter 11, the Bible says that “It dried up by the roots” (Mark 11:20). In order for the tree to die, what was feeding it had to die first. Because the tree was large, the Apostles did not see the result with their eyes right away; the roots were underground. Sometimes others do not see the roots in our lives, but they do see the tree and the fruit that those roots produce through our words and actions.

 

The things we put into us every day through our eyes, our ears, and our thoughts are seeds that can develop roots and become ingrained in our lives, actions, and habits. Just as these teenagers struggled to pull up the weeds by the roots, we will struggle to remove things from our lives that we allow to grow and become strongholds. And, none of us want to produce bad fruit!

 

Of course we all think of the big things like addictions to drugs, tobacco, or alcohol. These things obviously can grab hold of a person’s life and wreak havoc of it. But did you realize that Worry, Bitterness, and Un-forgiveness are just as bad. They can ruin your life from the inside out!

 

It could be constantly worrying about our kids, our future, our RVP visit, etc. Or maybe it is letting bitterness take root because Mr. So and So got promoted before we did. Or maybe it is not being able to forgive a person in your life who has hurt you. All of these things are like drinking poison! They will eat your insides causing the production of bad fruit in the form of your words and actions!

 

The longer we allow something to stay in our life the stronger it will become until we have a real fight on our hands. It is always easier to deal with things in your life when they are small. We must be diligent to not let these types of things develop roots. Let’s be quick to repent. Let’s be quick to forgive. Let’s be quick to turn to our Heavenly Father for direction and peace, leaving our cares with Him. Let’s only water what we want to grow in our lives!

 

Be careful and cautious of what seed you are allowing into your life. Let’s determine today to allow only the Word of God and ways of God to take root in our lives! All the others we will pull up and burn!

 

Have a SUPER awesome day today;

 

Jay

Personhood Defeats Baby Killing Abortion


Truth of Abortion

 Personhood for All - No Matter how Small

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John R. Houk

© March 3, 2014

 

The Personhood Movement does not get a lot of publicity from the Mainstream Media because of an opinion set down by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The decision of the SCOTUS Roe v. Wade made abortion on demand legal regardless of any legislation or people’s initiatives on a State or Federal level. The irony of the Roe v. Wade decision is SCOTUS then and in later decisions not necessarily about abortion but of personhood left the door open legislatures – State & Federal – to define personhood which would have a huge effect of the Secular Humanist Leftist agenda of demoralizing America. Which is probably the reason the MSM does not give a lot of attention except for occasionally printing anti-personhood propaganda.

 

“Nevertheless, the Supreme Court justices enshrined this logical inconsistency in their 1973 decision to legalize abortion. By allowing mothers to abort their babies, the Court implicitly operated on the assumption that in this instance it is acceptable for one person to end the life of another, giving no regard to the innocence of that person or his God-given right to life.

 

This could only be done by denying the personhood of the fetus (a Latin term for the unborn child, meaning “little one”). In the face of the state of Texas’ argument that “the fetus is a ‘person’ within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment,” Justice Harry Blackmun responded, “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 Amendment.” Justice Blackmun nevertheless concluded that, “the word ‘person’ as used in the Fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn.”

 

The High Court’s confusion over the nature of personhood was again demonstrated on January 21, 2010, when it ruled in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, that corporations are considered persons under the Constitution. Although technically corporations are identified as “legal fictions,” by extending to corporations “personhood,” the Court affirmed their right under the First Amendment to engage in political campaign speech.

 

Thus we have the supreme irony—which only our American judicial system is capable of —corporations are now considered persons, but unborn babies in the womb are not.” (A Person’s a Person, No Matter How Small; By Dr. Karen Gushta; Stop the War on Children; 2/21/11)

 

AND SO the very SCOTUS decisions that activist courts made child murder legal has given an out to make abortion murder by law.

 

With this in mind Senator Rand Paul has been involved for some time to get voters to sign a Personhood petition to support a Federal (U.S. Congress) Life Begins at Conception Act. I will post the most recent email signed by Rand Paul but is actually sent out by the National Pro-Life Alliance momentarily. Prior to that though I am going to post a page from Personhood USA that clearly presents the Personhood case. Personhood USA must be on to something for when I Googled “Personhood Movement” that organization came with a number of Left Wing blogs and news sites doing hit pieces on it. I even noticed in a one Google summary (sorry I didn’t pay attention at the time to the link) that suggested that Personhood USA might cause a rift in the Pro-Life movement. This kind of press makes Personhood USA an organization and website to be attentive toward if irritates Leftists so much.

 

If you don’t want to wait to get to Rand Paul to sign the petition you can go HERE. BUT I would hope you would read through the Personhood USA definition to get a clearer understanding.

What is Personhood?

 

Personhood USA About Us Page

 

Personhood is the cultural and legal recognition of the equal and unalienable rights of human beings.

 

VIDEO: Pro-life? What is it?

 

“Nothing is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man.”

Thomas Jefferson

 

When the term “person” is applied to a particular class of human beings, it is an affirmation of their individual rights. In other words, to be a person is to be protected by a series of God-given rights and constitutional guarantees such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

 

This terrifies the pro-abortion foes!

 

They know that if we clearly define the preborn baby as a person, they will have the same right to life as all Americans do!

 

This then also begs the question, is every human being a person?

 

There is a very real sense in which the need to answer this second question is, in itself, an absurdity.

 

If you look up the word “person” in your average dictionary (we’ll use Webster’s), you’ll find something like this: “Person n. A human being.”

 

“After fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being. It is no longer a matter of taste or opinion…it is plain experimental evidence. Each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception.”

Dr. Jerome Lejeune, “Father of Modern Genetics”

 

A person, simply put, is a human being. This fact should be enough. The intrinsic humanity of unborn children, by definition, makes them persons, and should, therefore, guarantee their protection under the law.

 

Personhood holds the key to filling the “Blackmun Hole,” a startling admission in the Roe v. Wade majority opinion:

 

“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 Amendment.”

Justice Harry Blackmun, Roe v. Wade

In 1973, the science of fetology was not able to prove, as it can now, that a living, fully human, and unique individual exists at the moment of fertilization and continues to grow through various stages of development in a continuum until death.

 

However, pick up any embryology book today and you will find that your life and every person’s life began at fertilization (Click to read more). [Blog Editor: Unfortunately the link is missing where it reads “Click to read more”.]

For nearly forty years, however, this has not been the case. The situation we are left with is that, in America, there is a group of living human beings who have no protection under the law and are being killed en masse every day. It is truly astounding, but not wholly unprecedented.

 

“In the eyes of the law…the slave is not a person.”

Virginia Supreme Court, 1858

Throughout history, certain people groups have felt the brunt of a system which denied their humanity, stripped their personhood, and subjected them to horrors beyond measure. While the legal framework that made such horrors possible has now been removed, it remains firmly in place for preborn Americans.

 

There remains one, and only one, group of human beings in the United States today for which being human is not enough. The inconvenience of their existence has resulted in this shameful injustice.

 

What is a person? A person is a human being at every age.

For over 40 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.

They have invented laws that condemned to painful deaths without trial more than 56 million babies for the crime of being “inconvenient.”

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation’s throat.

In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases.

But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended.

Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.

Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it.

That is why it’s so urgent you sign the petition to your Senators and Congressman that I will link to in a moment.

You see, in the coming year it is vital every Member of Congress be put on record.

And your petition today will help do just that.

Signing the Life at Conception Act petition will help break through the opposition clinging to abortion-on-demand and get a vote on this life-saving bill to overturn Roe v. Wade.

A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection.

This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.”

When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.

Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster.

But never once did the Supreme Court declare 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.”

Then the High Court made a key admission:

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., “Roe” who sought an abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

The fact is, the 14th Amendment couldn’t be clearer:

“. . . 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.”

That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.

But this simple, logical and obviously right legislation will not become law without a fight.

And that’s where your help is critical.

Please click here to sign your petition right away.

 

By turning up the heat on Congress in 2013 through a massive, national, grass-roots campaign, one of two things will happen.

If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.

But even if a Life at Conception Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will set the stage to defeat radical abortionists in the next election.

Either way, the unborn win . . . unless you do nothing.

That’s why the National Pro-Life Alliance is contacting hundreds of thousands of Americans just like you to mobilize a grass-roots army to pass a Life at Conception Act.

 

The first thing you must do is sign your petition by clicking here.

They are the key ingredient in the National Pro-Life Alliance’s plan to pass a Life at Conception Act. They’ll also organize:

 

Hard-hitting TV, radio and newspaper ads to be run just before each vote, detailing the horrors of abortion and mobilizing the American people.

 

Extensive personal lobbying of key members of Congress by rank and file National Pro-Life Alliance members and staff.

 

A series of newspaper columns to be distributed free to all 1,437 daily newspapers now published in the United States.

 

An extensive email, direct mail and telephone campaign to generate at least one million petitions to Congress like the one linked to in this letter.

 

Of course, to do all this will take a lot of money.

Just to email and mail the letters necessary to produce one million petitions will cost at least $460,000.

Newspaper, TV and radio are even more expensive.

But I’m sure you’ll agree pro-lifers cannot just sit by watching the slaughter continue.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s goal is to deliver one million petitions to the House and Senate in support of a Life at Conception Act.

When the bill comes up for a vote in Congress, it is crucial to have the full weight of an informed public backing the pro-life position.

I feel confident that the folks at National Pro-Life Alliance can gather those one million petitions.

But even though many Americans who receive this email will sign the petition, many won’t be able to contribute. That’s why it’s vital you give $10, $25, $50, $100, or even more if you can.

Without your help the National Pro-Life Alliance will be unable to gather the one million petitions and mount the full-scale national campaign necessary to pass a Life at Conception Act.

A sacrificial gift of $35 or even $100 or $500 now could spare literally millions of innocent babies in years to come. But if that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know that a National Pro-Life Alliance supporter wants to make your decision to give easier by agreeing to match your donation, no matter the size, increasing its value by 50%!

So please respond right away with your signed petition.

 

And please help with a contribution of at least $25 or $35. Some people have already given as much as $500. Others have given $50 and $100.

But no matter how much you give, whether it’s chipping in with $10 or a larger contribution of $150, I guarantee your contribution is urgently needed and will be deeply appreciated.

That’s why I hope and pray that you will not delay a moment to make a contribution of $1000, $500, $100, $50, $25, or even $10 if you can.

Your contribution to the National Pro-Life Alliance and your signed petition will be the first steps toward reversing Roe v. Wade and waking up the politicians about where our barbarous pro-abortion policy is taking us.

Sincerely,

 

Rand Paul,
United States Senator

 

P.S.

 

The Supreme Court itself admitted — if Congress declares unborn children “persons” under the law, the constitutional case for abortion-on-demand “collapses.”

 

Please help make that happen. Sign your petition today to the National Pro-Life Alliance to reverse Roe v. Wade, along with a sacrificial contribution of $100, $50, $25.  If that’s too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of $10.

You should also know a generous donor has agreed to match all contributions, no matter the size, increasing your gift to the National Pro-Life Alliance by 50%!

National Pro-Life Alliance Mission

 

Because every human life is precious in the eyes of God, and science and common sense dictate that life begins at conception, it is clear that abortion is the wanton taking of human life and no truly great nation can allow this practice to take place.

Ever since the dreadful Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, more than 55 million precious unborn babies have lost their lives.

The National Pro-Life Alliance’s members, staff and volunteers are dedicated to halting this slaughter once and for all. And despite the many remaining obstacles, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

National Pro-Life Alliance’s Focus Is Passing Substantive Pro-Life Legislation

The National Pro-Life Alliance occupies a unique and important role in the pro-life movement. The focus of many other pro-life organizations is research, publications or counseling.

These are all important and worthy activities, but the National Pro-Life Alliance is singular in its focus on passing pro-life legislation that will protect the unborn from the moment of conception onward.

We believe that it is not sufficient to merely support minor regulations on abortion in a few outrageous cases.

Instead, members of the National Pro-Life Alliance lobby both incumbents and candidates for office to come out clearly for measure like a Life at Conception Act to legislatively define constitutionally-protected “personhood” as beginning at the moment of conception.

Grass-Roots Pressure Has Built Record Support in Congress for Ending, Not Merely Regulating, Abortion-on-Demand

The grass-roots lobbying efforts of our 650,000 members have garnered a record level of support and cosponsors for such substantive measures.

The fact is, even with pro-abortion politicians still in leadership positions in the Senate and a radical President in the White House, pro-lifers have record support in Congress. More than 80 new members of Congress were elected on pro-life platforms. Now pro-lifers must hold the feet of each and every self-proclaimed “pro-life” member of Congress to the fire and demand meaningful legislation to limit, and ultimately end, abortion-on-demand.

Yet pro-abortion politicians from both parties will use every trick available to stop pro-life legislation. Nevertheless, READ THE REST

SUPPORT Life Begins at Conception

I am a Pro-Life/ANTI-Abortion kind of guy. I don’t believe a woman has a right to kill an unborn baby’s life. The woman might carry the unborn life but that does not make the baby a portion of her body. The concept of Pro-Choice – i.e. a woman should be able to choose decisions about her own body – is a load of self-delusion by Leftist ideology more interested in controlling/managing the extent of the Earth’s population (See Also HERE) than the Civil Liberties of a person’s life (Personhood) that has not been born yet.

 

In early 1973 the Supreme Court exacted a piece of unconstitutional Judicial Activism by creating law rather than ruling on the constitutionality of a law. In essence the case of Roe v Wade the Justices decided by fiat and a 7-2 vote to allow women to kill their unborn babies on demand. The Heritage Foundation has a great summary of the Roe v Wade decision:

 

Summary

In a 7-2 opinion by Justice Harry Blackmun, the Court ruled that a right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees a woman’s right to an abortion.  The Due Process Clause protects a broad right to privacy that is also found in the Ninth Amendment and the penumbras of the Bill of Rights.  This substantive due process right to privacy permits a woman to terminate her pregnancy for any reason during the first trimester.  Subsequent to approximately the end of the first trimester, the state may reasonably regulate abortions in ways related to maternal health.  After viability, the state may regulate or proscribe abortions, but it must permit them if found necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother, an exception which was expanded in Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton.

 

Analysis

This case is activist because the Supreme Court relies upon notions of living constitutionalism, invoking the doctrine of “substantive due process” to create a right that is nowhere to be found in the text of the Constitution.  This doctrine, which was established in Dred Scott v. Sandford, is the prime example of judges reading broad constitutional terms divorced from any textual or originalist moorings, thereby making them empty vessels into which they can pour any policy preferences they desire.  The Due Process Clause, which is now being used by judges as a judicial wildcard, was simply meant to protect the citizens from government abuse by ensuring that no one be deprived of life, liberty, or property except by a fair process.  The fact that the Court has used the word substantive to describe a clause that is clearly about process creates an anachronism that defies language and logic.  The Court in Roe wields the Clause to support abortion rights without any reasoned justification: after citing previous Supreme Court cases that erroneously established a broad constitutional right to privacy, the Court blithely asserted that this right “is broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.”

 

The opinion, which received a wave of criticism from those on both sides of the abortion debate, is infamous not only for its foundationless assertions about the meaning of the Due Process Clause, but also for its flawed historical analysis.  In an attempt to evaluate societal opinions about abortion throughout history, Blackmun looks to ancient societies, such as the Persian Empire, as well as the views of modern American lobbying organizations, but completely skips over the state of abortion regulation at the time of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment.  Conveniently so.  In 1868 “there were at least 36 laws enacted by state or territorial legislatures limiting abortion, stated Justice William Rehnquist in his dissent.

 

In his dissent, Justice Byron White accurately described this decision as “an exercise of raw judicial power.”  Under the guise of constitutional interpretation, the activist majority seized from the American people their ability to decide this controversial issue through the democratic process. (Roe v. Wade; Heritage Foundation)

 

There is an innovative Pro-Life plan to circumvent Leftists in Congress and in the Supreme Court. The plan is called the Life at Conception Movement (Personhood). Some Pro-Life Activists in individual States have been lobbying for such a law on a State basis. Senator Rand Paul has taken the Movement to the National level by introducing S. 583 in March 2013:

 

Calendar No. 30

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

 

S. 583

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

 

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

 

March 14, 2013

 

Mr. PAUL (for himself, Mr. WICKER, Mr. BARRASSO, Mr. BOOZMAN, Mr. BURR, Mr. COATS, Mr. COBURN, Mr. ENZI, Mrs. FISCHER, Mr. GRASSLEY, Mr. HOEVEN, Mr. INHOFE, Mr. MORAN, Mr. RISCH, Mr. THUNE, and Mr. JOHANNS) introduced the following bill; which was read the first time

 

March 18, 2013

 

Read the second time and placed on the calendar


A BILL

 

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

 

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Life at Conception Act of 2013’.

 

SEC. 2. RIGHT TO LIFE.

 

To implement equal protection for the right to life of each born and preborn human person, and pursuant to the duty and authority of the Congress, including Congress’ power under article I, section 8, to make necessary and proper laws, and Congress’ power under section 5 of the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Congress hereby declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child.

 

SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

 

In this Act:

 

(1) HUMAN PERSON; HUMAN BEING- The terms ‘human person’ and ‘human being’ include each member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being.

 

(2) STATE- The term ‘State’, and as used in the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States and other applicable provisions of the Constitution, includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and each other territory or possession of the United States.

 

Calendar No. 30

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

S. 583

 

A BILL

 

To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.


March 18, 2013

Read the second time and placed on the calendar (S. 583: A bill to implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the rightGovTrack.us)

 

Here is the Library of Congress summary of S. 583:

 

3/14/2013–Introduced.

 

Life at Conception Act of 2013 – Declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being beginning at the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual comes into being. Prohibits construing this Act to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child. (S. 583 Library of Congress Summary; GovTrack.us)

 

The only drawback I see about S. 583 is that it is a Bill rather than an Amendment. A Bill is easy to repeal depending on the Political Party in power in Congress and/or POTUS. An Amendment centered around the Life at Conception Movement is difficult if not also impossible to get through Congress with America’s current political spectrum divide. On the other hand if Congress managed to pass such an Amendment I suspect a sufficient number of States would line up behind it. The most populous States may be bastions of Leftist deception; however more States are Conservative on the Pro-Life stand pertaining to abortion. Amendments are ratified by State Ratification rather than a direct popular vote.

 

If S. 583 passed with the slimmest of margins in both Houses of Congress I suspect the voters’ choice for President in 2008 and 2012 – our Marxist-in-Chief – would veto the legislation. However, a successful Congressional campaign to enact the Life at Conception Act can lead to an annual thorn in Obama’s side until a Conservative President is elected in 2016. With the Life at Conception Act in mind it should be a no-brainer that Conservatives must win both the Senate and the House in the November 2014 General Elections.

 

At any rate the standard form of pressure that can be placed on our Representatives and Senators is via the petition method. Obviously petitions have no impact on the law on a Federal basis; however Representatives and Senators due pay attention to the numbers of their constituents that sign a petition. The petition numbers give legislators an idea on how to operate their campaigns for reelection.

 

The National Pro-Life Alliance (NPLA) has been at least one of the vehicles that Senator Rand Paul to educate voters on the Life at Conception Act and how such a bill would use the Supreme Court’s own guidelines to make abortion on demand as a birth control method to at least become limited. The NPLA is not only using petitions to influence Representatives and Senators but the organization is also using the petition method as a fundraiser. This a fantastic fundraiser to participate in particularly for Christians who still believe in Biblical Morality. The NPLA petition will lead you to a donation page that will offer choices of donations. Take note that if you are in my boat and have a tight budget and you desire to make sure you give to your Church you might feel a bit limited if you even can donate to the Life at Conception cause; nonetheless one of the options is “other”. So I say, “DO SOMETHING!’ even if it is just $1 buck.

Get Over the Gaffe and STILL Support Akin for Senate


Todd Akin Family

John R. Houk

© August 22, 2012

 

GOP Rep. Todd Akin is running for the Senate Seat currently held by the Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill. Akin has enjoyed an ever widening poll lead over McCaskill until a gaffe moment made him out to be an uncaring male concerning the issue of rape and abortion.

 

Democrats jumped on Akin like flies on manure. That was to be expected from Leftist hypocrites. The irony has been is that many big dog Republicans including presumptive Republican Nominee for President Mitt Romney.

 

Now I think I can guess why these Establishment Republicans sold Akin out.

 

I am certain at the top of the list is Political Correctness and the ability of the Democratic Party to control (or at least manage) the Media talking points when it comes to Republicans, Tea Party Candidates and Social Conservatives. Establishment Republicans are ever concerned on the damage the Left Mainstream Media (MSM) can form in the mind of voters concerning image.

                                                       

Next on the list of the Establishment sell-out of Akin is an actual Establishment Republican dislike of the ever growing Conservative wing of the GOP that primarily dedicated to Tea Party politics and Social Conservatism. In essence it is my belief the Establishment Republican power base are the Crony Capitalists that Tea Party Conservatives are weary of being associated.

 

For a little clarity’s sake, what is Crony Capitalism?

 

Crony capitalism and genuine capitalism, if not opposites, are fundamentally opposed. Unfortunately the broader public, to date, is largely unaware of this.

 

Crony capitalism is the marriage of the state and private special interests. Some people have called it corporatism, mercantilism, fascism, or even Communism.

 

We will call it crony capitalism.

 

By whatever name, it is phony capitalism.

 

Over the years the public has been taught that many of the problems it faces on a day to day basis such as the lack of jobs, rising prices, corruption in Congress, and so on are a result of capitalism.

 

If so, it is a perverted capitalism.

 

These unsavory realities are largely the result of government/private “partnerships.”

 

Whether in banking, agriculture, housing, energy, transportation, manufacturing, or nearly any other facet of the economy, the “unsavory” parts are often the result of public/private collusion.

These are my thoughts on why Akin’s own Republican Party has sold him out on a gaffe.

 

As I said, I am not surprised the Dems went after Akin’s gaffe because Dems are hypocrites when it comes to the moral high ground. If I Googled enough I can come up with a number of Dems that had moral or near criminal behavior that the Dems and the MSM never called for a resignation or not to run an election campaign. However I like to point out one of the biggest Dem dog the Democrats protected from political fall-out.

 

That big dog Dem is former President Slick Willie (Bill or William) Clinton. Clinton’s behavior at the least was an adulterous skirt chaser and at the worst a serial rapist. When Clinton’s sperm was proven to be on the skirt of then intern Monica Lewinsky, it was indisputable proof an unfaithful husband. Clinton should have resigned and of course he refused. AND the Dems and the MSM backed Clinton’s desire to remain in the Office of President of the United States.

 

Rep. Todd Akin in his campaign to unseat Claire McCaskill from the Senate is a Pro-Life Social Conservative. He believes life begins at conception (as do I). His thoughts on abortion and the right to life run so deep that he is in the crowd that rape should not be a reason for killing a baby (I waver back and forth on this issue). In explaining his Pro-Life stance he used the words “legitimate rape” in an interview. Of course there is no such thing as a legitimate rape. So what other phrase could Rep. Akin have used?

 

Perhaps there is a difference between rape and consensual rough sex. In which case, a better word for “legitimate” would be actual rape. Statistics do show that actual rape produces far less pregnancies than consensual sex. Do the statistics line up with Akin’s thought that a woman’s biology somehow prevents male sperm from fertilizing a female egg in rape? This is where Akin screwed up. The statistics and the alleged science Akin refers to are not a match.

 

The statistics refer more to the occasions of rape and pregnancy has more to do with the sexual prowess of the rapist. An example I read runs something like – a rapist is impotent or prematurely ejaculates – hence the statistics implicates a failure of planting the male seed rather than the female body rejecting a rapist’s sperm.

 

Below are three WND articles that defend Rep. Todd Akin’s right to stick to his guns and continue to run for the Office of Senator from the State of Missouri based on his politics rather than a gaffe – really the first if not only gaffe in Akin’s campaign to unseat a Liberal Democratic Party Senator.
