A little over a year ago I wrote a piece titled Personhood. To America’s abortion industry, Personhood is a four letter word. It represents everything they refuse to acknowledge. Personhood rightly conveys living, human status to an unborn child, thereby invoking the protection of their right to life under our Constitution. Planned Parenthood would have you believe that an unborn child does not become a living human being until they say it does. Personhood means to them that they will have to stop killing babies for money and get a real job.
On a week during which the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare, the abortion industry’s best friend, and trashed our Constitution with several other acts of legislation from the bench, I felt today was a good time to revisit the reality of personhood, and reflect on the most important of all our rights; the right to life. Essential, divinely ordained human rights can’t be changed or created out of thin air by a cadre of 9 tenured for life jurists, overreaching their authority on the whims of political correctness.
Personhood is granted at conception, at the same instant every new life is granted the gift of life. The following piece, written on May 1 of last year, states my case for personhood. Nothing will ever change my position on personhood and I will continue to fight for every unborn child’s right to life; for as long as it takes.
The Alabama Supreme Court’s recent ruling that unborn children are afforded personhood and equal protection under the law, as guaranteed by the 14th Amendment, may be the death-knell for abortion. If an unborn child is afforded constitutional protection at every stage of its life, Roe v Wade is rendered mute; case closed. I can stop writing letters. Planned Parenthood is done. If only it were so easy. Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry will spend millions to overturn this ruling. They know that once an unborn child is legally determined to be a living human being, i.e. a person, abortion will be defined under the law as something it already is; murder. This is a very important step and one that I believe is a quantum leap forward for the pro-life movement.
I’m convinced that the knuckleheads we send to Washington won’t end abortion. It’s up to the states to make this happen. Organizations like the National Right to Life Committee and Personhood USA will end the killing. NARAL calls Personhood USA an extreme anti-choice group. Translated, that means Personhood USA respects every unborn child’s right to life. Personhood measures are on the 2014 ballots in North Dakota and Colorado. The abortion industry is scared and I like it. There is no morally or ethically based reason to fight legislation that will codify the obvious; that an unborn child is a living human being. Planned Parenthood President, Cecile Richards recently said that she didn’t consider her 3 children to be alive until the moment of their birth. What, pray tell, did she think was growing and kicking inside her other than a living human being?
All the abortion industry has to work with is misinformation and denial. They can’t be truthful about what they do and why they do it because they know that the ugly truth that they kill babies for money will put them out of business. They know that killing babies is a multi-billion dollar business and that most people would be appalled at the extent of the slaughter in our country. They don’t want the average American to know that another baby is killed every 26 seconds in the greatest country on earth. They don’t want the average American to know that at 20 weeks and older an unborn baby can feel the pain of being killed.
Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry don’t want unborn children to be considered human. They want you to believe that you become human only at the moment of your birth. They want you to believe that a full-term, fully viable baby is not human until it completely leaves its mother’s body. They want you to believe that this full-term baby can be delivered with only the very top of its head still in the birth canal, and then have its skull punctured and its brain suctioned from its body. They want you to call this procedure partial-birth abortion; not murder.
I support a woman’s right to choose just about anything other than choosing to have her baby killed. I believe that every baby is a living human being from the moment of conception and that its right to life is inviolable. Humans are persons. Babies are human. Babies are persons. Personhood places them off-limits to the abortionist.
