Ensuring public servants respect and uphold the belief that human life is sacred not only helps to foster a society built around family values, it helps ensure programs like Social Security and Medicare will continue.

Petition to: United States Congress

We the people of the United States acknowledge a need to protect innocent members of the public who are being killed.  

America currently treats some people inconsistently, depending on whether or not that person is wanted.  Evidence for this inconsistency exists in:

1.  Cases where the legality of taking the life of a human being is determined based on age, often varying from state to state.  

2.  Homicide cases where an injury to a pregnant woman causes death, wherein the person who has committed the crime is charged with two counts of homicide.  

3.  Medical cases wherein the loss of the life of a pregnant woman has occurred due to negligence, wherein legal damages account for the loss of two separate lives, mother and child. 

Because we believe every human life is sacred, regardless of whether a person is wanted by his or her family, we acknowledge the need for legal reform that allows for consistent treatment of human persons.  

Accordingly, we believe the best means to accomplish this reform is to require that all citizens who desire to serve the public must attest that they believe all innocent human life is sacred.  Thus, while exercising their duties in office, all people, particularly unborn children, have great assurance that their right to life will be preserved. 

Insofar as a true democracy is subject to whatever forms of ignorance predominate in the majority, we declare it a priority to educate all those who are unaware or would deny facts surrounding the intrinsic dignity of all human beings.  Such education would naturally result in a democracy wherein all elected leaders recognize the rights of every person.

However, insofar as this education has not or cannot be achieved, we declare the need for ascension to a form of government ruled by a republic, where such public servants embrace and naturally uphold laws that allow for the protection of the dignity and rights of all human beings, from their moment of conception to natural death.  Accordingly, the right to life shall not be subject to one or more judges or democratic vote, especially since it is clear that widespread ignorance or indifference hinders our government from protecting the most basic right of all, the right to life.  

It is a known scientific fact that every human person begins their life at the moment of conception.  Accordingly, we assert that a person is created and takes their earliest identifiable form at the moment of conception, the time at which he or she has a full human genome, which includes the mitochondrial DNA, i.e. the Eve gene. 

Although such a person would be incapable of demonstrating their personhood at such an early stage of development, except by the possession of a full human genome and through continuing to grow, such a person shall receive full protection of their rights under law, in particular, the right to life, i.e. to continue growing.  However, if the continued growth of this person should threaten the life of his or her mother, only the mother and her family or husband shall decide whether or not to attempt delivery of that child in a manner that may result in the loss of life, whether the mother’s, child’s, or both.  Furthermore, no healthcare provider shall be forced to make an attempt to deliver that child if that provider believes such an act will undoubtedly and directly result in the loss of that child.  Moreover, they retain the right to conscientiously object to carrying out such an act. 

Although we know that rape and associated cases of incest are terrible occurrences, the right to life of any child conceived during such an act shall be protected. 

We know there are many beliefs that are life-affirming and reflect the sacredness of life, and in particular, human life.  Some people hold such beliefs without necessarily believing in a higher power or God.  For many however, this truth is affirmed in the knowledge that every person is made in the image of God and therefore, has infinite worth. 

We know America’s foundation rests on the belief that human rights have been given by a Creator, a Creator who has endowed every person with the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness / right to own property.  Therefore, it is fitting that those who would affirm that life is sacred and that every innocent human person has a right to life, would also be fit for public service. 

In contrast, we believe one who does not believe that every innocent human person, from the moment of their conception, has a right to life, is unfit to hold public office, regardless of whether or not they’re agnostic or would deny the existence of a God who has made mankind in His image. 

In conclusion, upholding the dignity of every human person flows from a government composed of leaders who recognize the sanctity of human life, who will create and support legislation that protects those who cannot protect themselves, exemplifying that they are fit to act in the best interest of the public. 

Furthermore, eliminating the option to kill an unborn child through abortion aids in the development of a society that respects life, marriage and family –the nucleus of civilization.  Likewise, the number one cause of poverty in America is divorce.  In that the day of becoming “one flesh” is less hallowed through the injustices of sexual immorality, laws that protect the rights of unborn children deepen the bonds and value of marriage, helping to establish a culture of life and healthy civilization.  Moreover, ensuring public servants respect and uphold the belief that human life is sacred not only helps to foster a society built around family values, it helps ensure programs like Social Security and Medicare will continue.  

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
