The slaughter of the innocents simply must be stopped

"We hold these truths to be self-evident," wrote Thomas Jefferson, "that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

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.

1.2 million deaths from abortions: far more than all US wars

I must state the obvious in no uncertain terms. We are in a life and death struggle. Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, America has averaged about 1.2 million abortions per year. That is a staggering number, and the majority of people cannot in actuality comprehend its enormity. 1.2 million deaths due to abortion represent more deaths than all deaths in America due to heart disease and all forms of cancer combined annually.

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.

Ban abortions for sex selection or race selection.

Hice co-sponsored PRENDA: Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act

Congressional Summary: Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011: Imposes criminal penalties on anyone who knowingly or knowingly attempts to:

  1. perform an abortion that is sought based on the sex, gender, color or race of the child, or the race of a parent;
  2. use the threat of force to intimidate any person for the purpose of coercing a sex-selection or race-selection abortion;
  3. solicit or accept funds for the performance of such an abortion; or
  4. transport a woman across a state line for the purpose of obtaining such an abortion.
Deems a violation of this Act to be prohibited discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. (Violators lose federal funding.)

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.
