Life is truly a gift from God. And it is the most fundamental of all human rights. Life begins at fertilization. I will sponsor legislation to confer constitutional protection upon unborn babies and to protect life until natural death. I also favor a Human Life Amendment to our Constitution.
Since the Supreme Court decisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton in 1973 unleashed the horror of abortion-on-demand upon our nation, over 50,000,000 innocent little unborn boys and girls have been killed by abortion. This is really the "slaughter of the innocents" and it simply must be stopped.
For the sake of the little ones, for the sake of the women who are exploited by the abortion industry, and for the sake of our nation, we simply must stop the killing.
Here's another way to attempt to grasp the atrociousness of 1.2 million abortions each year. Since America's founding to the present time, there have been about 30 wars and/or military conflicts. Over that timeframe of almost 240 years there has been a total of about 1.3 million COMBINED deaths due to military action. Nearly as many abortions have been performed, resulting in the death of the child, in a single year than the combined deaths due to every military action.
Congressional Summary: Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011: Imposes criminal penalties on anyone who knowingly or knowingly attempts to:
Sponsor's Letter (Rep. Trent Franks):PRENDA restricts sex-selection abortion and race-selection abortion, and the coercion of a woman to obtain either. The woman seeking an abortion is exempted from prosecution, while abortion providers are held to account.
Opponents' Opinion (Erin Gloria Ryan on jezebel.com):Rep. Franks, a white man, has claimed that his desire to disallow "race-selective abortions" is based on his concern that the black community is having so many abortions. He doesn't say how, exactly, doctors are supposed to determine that a black woman seeking an abortion is doing so because her fetus would be black or whether she's just doing it because she doesn't want to be pregnant. Let's be honest here: this isn't really about saving girls and minorities; it's about eventually making abortion illegal. A sex-selection ban would present the Supreme Court with a dilemma: it dares the pro-abortion justices to embrace an abortion right to kill girls for being girls.
