We demand hearings for the Life at Conception Act
Pro-lifers are always told that we must accept morally flawed legislation because it is the best that we can hope to achieve under the current circumstances. Never mind that we have the largest GOP majority in decades.
Rank and file pro-lifers are told over and over that if we only would overlook our principles and support "pro-life" candidates then we will at least be able to make incremental gains. Of course, once the people do their part and vote in "pro-life" legislators, the politicians decide to pull the plug on even the weakest of flawed legislation.
We are tired of this kabuki dance.
The Life at Conception Act goes to the heart of the matter by defining the preborn child as the bearer of fundamental rights, and therefore protected by the constitution from the moment of conception.
Pro-lifers are wondering if the moral cancer of abortion is nothing but an electoral game for the GOP. Many of us are tired of being told the lie that we have to violate our conscience in order to make political gains.
The members of the Personhood Alliance: Personhood Alabama, Alaska Right to Life, Cleveland RTL, Personhood Florida, Georgia Right to Life, Personhood Iowa, Personhood Mississippi, Personhood Nebraska, NH Right to Life PAC, Personhood Nevada, Personhood New York, Personhood Ohio, Personhood Virginia, ProLifePhysicians.org, Pro-Life Wisconsin, and Save the 1 demand that we hold congressional hearings on the Life at Conception Act.
H.R. 816, the Life at Conception Act now has 127 co-sponsors, including one Democrat! The bill's stated purpose is 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."
This is common sense!
This is what every pro-lifer believes. So why can't a large GOP congressional majority not even muster the will to hold a hearing on this legislation!
With this petition, you can join your voice to the other members of the Personhood Alliance in urging members of congress to get behind the Life at Conception Act.
The Life at Conception Act will enable congress to combat the judicial tyranny which has allowed a group of unelected judges to undemocratically force abortion on demand upon our nation.
There is simply no reason why the Congress has to cower to the Supreme Court when the 14th amendment clearly gives the Congress, not the Supreme Court the right and duty to enforce the equal protection clause: "The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article." Section 5 of the 14th Amendment
It is time for the people's representatives to do their job. As pro-lifers we understand that weak-kneed compromise leads us nowhere.
Sign this petition to send a message to the Congress: support the Life at Conception Act, schedule congressional hearings NOW!!
