Because abortion kills an unborn human being, abortion is wrong by definition (Beckwith 1993). The current law is nothing more than abortion on demand. Women have no limits on their “rights” to kill their babies at any stage. Even after viability, the courts have allowed for an exception for health. This exception is always interpreted so generally that just about any reason can be related to a woman’s health. Doe v. Bolton defined health as including: “physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age—relevant to the wellbeing of the patient.
We staunchly oppose this position. We are convinced that our opponents have an agenda even larger than reversing Roe v. Wade and criminalizing abortion. They want to eliminate contraception as well. Through some clever twists in definition, they claim that all contraceptives, except condoms and diaphragms, are actually abortifacient—that is, they stop a pregnancy. The trick is that they do not discuss pregnancy but talk about conception: they say the fertilized egg is a human being. But there is no pregnancy until the fertilized egg attaches itself to the wall of the uterus and begins to draw nutrients.
If not, we must amend the Constitution to protect unborn life. Roe v. Wade is one of the worst Supreme Court decisions ever. Even those who are not religious or as passionate as others about protecting unborn children find this case to be deplorable. The activist, liberal judges on the Court created a so-called right to privacy out of thin air! Nothing in the Constitution suggests that governments have to stay out of matters relating to sex and procreation. This is “legislating from the bench” of the worst kind.
