Life at Conception Act - Declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being beginning at the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual comes into being. Prohibits construing this Act to Help authorize the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child. Can You Help ?
Upon introduction of a bill or resolution in the House or Senate, legislative analysts in the Congressional Research Service (CRS) of the Library of Congress write a short summary that objectively describes the measure's significant provisions. Introduced version summaries are subject to length limitations as a matter of policy.
When a measure receives action (e.g., it is reported from a committee or passed by the House or Senate), the analysts then write an expanded summary, detailing the measure's effect upon programs and current law. Bill summaries are written as a result of a congressional action and may not always correspond to a document published by the Government Printing Office. A final Public Law summary is prepared upon enactment into law.
Each summary description identifies the date and version of the measure, and indicates whether there have been amendments: e.g., Passed House amended (07/19/2013).

A Frontal Assault on Roe v. Wade's Protection of Abortion-on-Demand
For forty years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played God with innocent human life.
The result has been a brutal holocaust that has claimed the lives of more than 56 million innocent and helpless unborn children in America.
In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling forced abortion-on-demand down our nation's throat.
As a result, many pro-lifers resigned themselves to protecting a life here and there -- passing laws which slightly regulate abortion in the most outrageous cases. Others tiptoed around the Supreme Court, hoping they wouldn't be offended.
Life at Conception Act Follows the High Court's
Instructions by Defining When Life Begins
Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.
Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion by using the Constitution instead of amending it.
A simple majority vote in both houses of Congress is all that is needed to pass a Life at Conception Act as opposed to the two-thirds required to add a Constitutional amendment.
When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined "right of privacy" which it "discovered" in so-called "emanations" of "penumbrae" of the Constitution.
Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster. But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a Constitutional right.
Instead the Supreme Court said:
"We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man's knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer."
Life at Conception Act Would
Dismantle Roe Using the Supreme Court's Own Language
Then the High Court made a key admission:
"If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case [i.e. "Roe" who sought the abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment."
That's exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.
A Life at Conception Act changes the focus of the abortion debate. It takes the Supreme Court out of the equation and places responsibility squarely on the shoulders of the elected representatives who, unlike life term judges, must respond to grass-roots pressure.
National Pro-Life Alliance members have led the fight to end abortion-on-demand by passing a Life at Conception Act. They have generated over 1.5 million petitions to Congress to date urging lawmakers to cosponsor and fight for passage of a Life at Conception Act.
Fight to Overturn Roe v. Wade Heats Up in Congress
Those continued efforts have led to ever-increasing support for a Life at Conception Act in Congress. In the 113th Session of Congress, Pro-life Members of Congress introduced Life at Conception Acts – in both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
Thanks to the grassroots lobbying of National Pro-Life Alliance members, the Life at Conception Act was introduced with an all time record number of cosponsors, in both houses. And NPLA members will continue to hold the politicians accountable, pushing for an up or down vote on a Life at Conception Act.
In the U.S. Senate, pro-life floor leader Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the Life at Conception Act, S. 583.
Behind the two Life at Conception Act bills in the House are Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA).
Congressman Paul Broun, the author of H.R. 23, is a former medical doctor who entered the political arena in 2007.
Congressman Broun has since sought to use his medical expertise to legally establish the scientific fact that conception marks the creation of a genetically unique human being, who should be guaranteed Constitutional protection under the 14th Amendment.
An up or down vote on the Life at Conception Act will put politicians on record either for or against ending abortion-on-demand.
Pro-lifers are urged to call (202) 224-3121 and insist that their Congressmen cosponsor H.R. 23 and H.R. 1091, and that their Senators cosponsor S. 583 today.

Life at Conception Act - an overview
Protects All Unborn by Legislatively Establishing Their “Personhood. ”A Life at Conception Act - as introduced in the 113th Congress by Congressman Jim Jordan (H.R.
1091) and in the Senate by Senator Rand Paul (S. 583) - is legislation that, quite simply, would
declare the unborn to be “persons” under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, and therefore
entitled to the right to life guaranteed therein. The 14th Amendment states: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of
citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or
property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws. ”Uses Rather than Amends the Constitution Since Congress May Define
“Personhood. ”Section 5, 14th Amendment -
the provisions of this article. ”“Congress Shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, In the past, corporations have been established as “persons” under the 14th Amendment and the
Supreme Court has upheld this notion providing a clear precedent for legislatively defining who or
what is in fact a “person” under the Amendment. Certainly a human being yet to be born --
possessing its own unique set of human DNA -- is more worthy of the term “person” than a
corporate entity. Roe v. Wade Would be Effectively Reversed.4
Court to be an absolute constitutional right. In fact, when writing the majority opinion in
Wade Abortion Never Declared Absolute “Right” - Abortion has never been declared by the Roe v., Justice Harry Blackmun wrote: "We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. . . the judiciary at this point in
the development of man's knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer. "The Court then admitted: "If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case [i.e. "Roe" who sought
the abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life is then guaranteed by the [14th]
Amendment. "A Life at Conception Act, by establishing personhood for the unborn, would do just that.4
was legalized more than forty years ago. Since 1973 there have been major breakthroughs in
medical technology. We can now detect a fetal heartbeat only 5 weeks after conception and fetal
brain waves can be measured at just 8 weeks. Ultrasound allows us to see a baby as he moves,
sleeps and sucks his thumb in the womb.
The fact that each of us possesses blood type, gender and DNA distinct from the mother
beginning at the moment of conception is irrefutable proof that we are members of the human
race or “persons. ”Technological Advances Provide Further Proof that Life Begins at Conception - Abortion Most Americans Agree that Life Begins at Conception. Recent polls have demonstrated that a clear majority of Americans believe life begins at the moment
of conception. One such poll, conducted by
58% believe that a new human life begins at the moment an egg is fertilized. Newsweek and published as a cover story, showed that A Constitutional Amendment is Unnecessary in Dealing with Roe v. Wade.4

unborn, it requires only a simple majority vote in both Houses and the President’s signature for
passage. Since a Life at Conception Act uses existing language in the 14th Amendment to protect the Life at Conception Act - an overview The Life at Conception Act Ends Experimentation on Humans Without Prohibiting
Effective Stem Cell Research. This legislation protects human life from the moment of conception. Since adult stem cells are not
and cannot become a human life, this bill will have no affect on adult stem cell research, which has
been successfully used for many years in the treatment of a variety of diseases.
However, it would prohibit experiments on baby embryos where the human life is intentionally
created and destroyed. Such experiments on human babies have produced absolutely no medical
advances. The Life at Conception Act Would be Enforced Through Elected Legislatures, Not
the Hostile Federal Court System. By legislatively defining life as beginning at the moment of conception, the Life at Conception Act
provides all human life with the protection of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution
which protects “life, liberty and property.”
In that way, this legislation will remove all obstacles in which unelected judges, by judicial edict,
prevent the people and their elected officials from enacting
With judicial obstacles gone, Congress and state legislatures can then craft language with the specific
protections and penalties. any protection of human life. A Life at Conception Act is Consistent with Supreme Court Precedent.Since a Life at Conception Act must pass by majority vote in both Houses of Congress, and be
signed into law by the President, the measure will go to the Court with considerable backing in the
likely event it is challenged.
In addition, in
In fact, in other contexts Congress has already defined the term “person” and the Supreme Court has
upheld this power. For example in 1 USC §1 the word “person” is defined by Congress to include
corporations and companies. The Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld this definition. Roe v. Wade the Court has said that if personhood is established the case for abortion A Life at Conception Act is an Achievable Means of Making Progress in Defense of
the Sanctity of Life. The bill will be considered by the Subcommittee on the Constitution in the House and by the
Judiciary Committee in the Senate. To get action on the bill, it is essential to recruit a large number
Through its nationwide federal Pro-Life Candidate Survey Program and member communications,
the National Pro-Life Alliance is stressing that cosponsoring the Life at Conception Act is the true
measure of an elected official’s commitment to the pro-life cause.
Win or lose, a mere vote on this legislation will give pro-life activists a reason to mobilize for those
candidates who truly support the sanctity of life. National Pro-Life Alliance5211 Port Royal Road, Suite 500 • Springfield, VA 22151
ABORTION IS MOSTLY FOR MEN....IT MAKES WOMEN MORE willing to give them FREE SEX, BOTH around going from one empty so called relationship to another..and has not benefited women at all..and that's what some men like...Sex without commitment or responsibility..
Now the men dont have to marry you....WHY PAY FOR THE COW..WHEN YOU CAN GET IT FOR FREE....CHEAP!
The New Morality...this new mind set...has caused great harm to our nation...AND MEN AND WOMEN..
WHO WILL BE THERE FOR YOU IN YOUR OLD AGE? You do realize you are going to grow old.. weak and a bit helpless in time.
Many people today..have had no children..and will get old...and will be dying all alone..in their greatest time of need...Old Age is something every one of us will experience.....Who will care about you..Who will help you..cause you are not an oasis..you WILL need help..
WHO WILL LOVE YOU if you have made no investment IN YOUR OWN FUTURE?
THE MEDIA IS USED FOR SOCIAL ENGINEERING..CHANGING MIND SET...and has PROGRAMMED our CITIZENRY into thinking that its cool to be single and free...If that were true..then no one would ever seek relationships...But there are those who will mimic what they see on TV..
AMERICANS WERE MUCH HAPPIER BEFORE ABORTION..AND WOMEN JOINING IN THE WORK FORCE...
WAS ABORTION INSTALLED IN ORDER TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR WOMEN TO ENTER THE WORK FORCE??? WHY WOULD THIS BE SO???
They didnt want you making babies..they wanted you working... TO PROVIDE more money FOR THE ELITES..A SECOND STREAM OF INCOME THROUGH INCOME TAXES....paid to their PRIVATELY OWNED LOOTING, REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH STATION.....THE IRS (Is not a part of the US GOV).
FEMINISM WAS NOT FOR WOMEN..IT IS FOR GREEDY IMMORAL MEN...ITS THE WORST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO WOMEN..AND TO AMERICAN CHILDREN. ITS TIME TO STOP THE INSANITY OF LIBERAL THINKING.
LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER...IT MAKES NO SENSE TO THOSE WHO CAN SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE OF LIFE..
WOMEN CONTROL THE MORALITY OF THE LAND....
Medically a foetus can't survive independently before the third trimester and the hipocratic oath dictates a pregnancy can be terminated if it threatens the mother's life, so even if you make abortion clinics illegal you still can't make pregnancy termination resulting in foetus death illegal in any regular hospital under the authority of a medical doctor.
All you can do is make abortion clinics illegal or seeking an abortion illegal, but you can't make medical instruction or procedure illegal without alienating the United States from every other developed nation as a backwards step into puritan mediaeval rulership.
So it's a moot argument. Life at conception is not something that can ever exist for you, because it's bullshit that you made up in your head. The real facts are completely different from things that redneck backwards morons make up in their heads. And you sure as shit don't have the right to force everyone else to live like redneck backwards morons just because you want to personally. They won't stand for it, and you can't be successful in the first place.
Everyone in the medical community including myself agree's that life begins a conception. Medically speaking, a new born baby can't survive independently either. So, it's your point that is moot. Your post is a clear indication of the extent of your indoctrination.
It seems you people think abortion is a step forward. That part of a Nations "development" into the realm of enlightenment is killing baby's. In fact, what you liberals construe as " developed " is a bit bizarre to say the least. Example, one would think that a peoples less reliance on government would be a step forward but not with liberals.
The "developed" Country's you speak of are mostly bankrupt aren't they. In fact, nearly everyone of them including ourselves. Bankrupt from massive entitlements. Just as in abortion, it's always the most innocent that are forced to take the responsibility whether financially or by death.
Would our Forefather's forward Constitutional Right's to a fetus of an American citizen of the United States if they were alive today?, sure they would. Why?, because the fetus has life. Whether in the womb or not is immaterial. That's why shooting a person committing suicide is still considered murder.
Your post is the typical liberal double-standard argument. It's not a life, however, kill a pregnant woman it's double-homicide. Which is it?. Abortion law is the foundation of liberal double-standard law making. It's was the prelude to why America is so f**ked up today.
VANIR: Medically a foetus can't survive independently before the third trimester
*****MUSIC: Can you survive a trimester out in the back country..all alone? Should you be aborted too because you cannot survive living in pristine land without any cities..stores...people..Your words..are so typical of people of your kind...Programmed..all saying the same crap...as if you all went to LIB SCHOOL together..Not an original thought in the whole lot of ya.
FACT.. ROE V WADE...WAS NOT PASSED CONSTITUTIONALLY..IT WAS FORCED ON US...ANY LAW PASSED THAT DOES NOT LINE UP WITH THE US CONSTITUTION..IS CONSIDERED NULL AND VOID...And the unborn are OUR POSTERITY mentioned in that document...WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE FOR WHAT WE ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL WANT not just be forced into accepting what you want...It cannot be up to a couple of crooked liberal judges to change direction of an entire nation ..WE THE PEOPLE..are the GOVERNMENT..DONT FORGET THAT...AND WE THE PEOPLE..DONT LIKE ABORTION....CAUSE ITS MURDER...AND WERE NOT INCLINED TO MURDER OTHER PEOPLE.
we deserve a vote on abortion..Its up to all of us..not just your liberal pet judges.
VANIR: All you can do is make abortion clinics illegal or seeking an abortion illegal, but you can't make medical instruction or procedure illegal without alienating the United States from every other developed nation as a backwards step into puritan mediaeval rulership.
I was a teen when Planned Murderhood came to town...I remember how they pushed abortions...lying to us about the baby..telling us it looked like a fish...WELL HELLS BELLS..WHEN I SAW MY UNBORN CHILD...IT LOOKED LIKE A HUMAN BEING...HELLS BELLS..IMAGINE THAT..
AMERICA WAS A GREAT AND POWERFUL NATION.....BEFORE ABORTION..Its after abortion was made legal..that we began to slip down the slippery slope..and went from being a decent people who respected life...to a narcissistic society changing our men into MALE DOGS..AND our women into FEMALE B*TCHES IN HEAT..No one can honestly deny this has happened ..A NATION WITHOUT STRONG FAMILY VALUES..IS A NATION THAT WILL FALL. Abortion kills families.
Its abortion that teaches a DISRESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE that has changed us into a heartless people willing to murder INNOCENT middle eastern peeps..TO ROB THEM OF RESOURCES AND OIL...cause the PARALLEL GOV told them to..THE PARALLEL GOV IS RAN BY FOREIGNERS...NGO's are their gov institution..FUNDED BY YOU..
ABORTION IS ABOUT PEOPLE too focused on their crotch today WHICH was created by crooked media..to cripple this nation...SEX IS A WEAPON OF WAR BEING USED AGAINST US TO DESTROY OUR MORALITY..cause the MERCHANTS and the INDUSTRIAL MEDICAL COMPLEX cannot make money off of moral people..
We dont : support their abortion industry..we dont gamble..wh*re around and catch diseases that must be treated...we dont smoke..drink excessively...or go into credit card debt..buy their porn..go to their strip clubs...That is why they had to demoralize us...SO THEY CAN MAKE LOTTSA MOOLAH OFF OF US...YOU CANT SEE THIS??? or are you just too damned focused on your crotch to see the bigger picture here?
ABORION CREATED 'MALES' not men..BARBARIANS on the same level as a beast..searching for the females in heat.- This was the 'gift' created by abortion..and immorality..ALMOST NO ONE acted that way before the 70's.. AND barbarians do NOT create a civilized and peaceful prosperous society. THEY NEVER HAVE...which will only further lead to the decay of our moral PURITAN society we used to live under when AMERICA WAS GREAT..AND HER PEOPLE WERE A DECENT PEOPLE..UNLIKE WHAT WE SEE TODAY..
SORRY DUDE.BUT I CANT STAND WATCHING THE DECAY IVE SEEN IN MY COUNTRY IN MY LIFETIME...I LIVED IN A TIME WHERE THINGS WERE WONDERFUL..PEOPLE WERE MORAL AND DECENT...PEOPLE STAYED MARRIED..there was little to no crime...even in cities..todays world is a pile of shit..because the people have been systematically..incrementally programmed to be barbaric...and immoral.....WH*REMONGERS..and CHILD MURDERERS ARE INCAPABLE OF CREATING A CIVILIZED SOCIETY...HOW CAN THEY CREATE..WHAT THEY DO NOT KNOW???? ..Just take a look around you...there IS MY PROOF.
IS THIS TOO PURITAN FOR YOU? WHAT IS WRONG WITH BEING 'CIVILIZED' and respecting my body..? Im disease free..
ANYWAY...America was a great nation..then came free love..abortion...birth control pills..divorce...anyone with half a brain knows this is the left hand path if you know what that means. ....
So RESPECTING HUMAN LIFE..IS BACKWARDS TO YOU..unexceptionable? Well tuff..you dont get to make up all the rules..WE DESERVE TO VOTE ON THIS ISSUE..AND THE RESULTS NEED TO BE RESPECTED BY BOTH SIDES...In reality..the way the nation is set up...ITS STATE RIGHTS..THAT COUNT...EACH STATE CAN MAKE ITS OWN LAW IN REGARDS TO ABORTION...but its still not a good idea to cheapen human life by murdering the most innocent and helpless Americans..the unborn.....OUR POSTERITY that was mentioned in our law.
SEE DUDE..YOUR THOROUGHLY PROPAGANDIZED AND BRAINWASHED...and you dont want to have to buck up and take care of the child you helped to create..with some wh*re you met in a bar...Before abortion..MEN DID NOT BEHAVE THAT WAY...SO MUCH..Abortion has feed the beast of immorality..and barbarianism
ABORTION WAS CREATED FOR MEN....NOT WOMEN..
JUST AS THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT WAS ALSO CREATED FOR MEN...SO THEY COULD DOUBLE THE INCOME TAXES PAID TO THE IRS A PRIVATELY OWNED AGENCY..OF THE COMMUNIST WING OF THE PRESENT D*CK-TATER SHIP US FAUX PARALELL GOV.
ITS A MANS WORLD...WHEN WOMEN NO LONGER RESPECT THEMSELVES...then the Men have ALL CONTROL - WOMEN CONTROL THE MORALITY OF THE LAND..the more immoral the women are...the more Barbaric the men become.
I teach young women to respect themselves...so they can have wonderful marriages with men who also respect themselves...
WATER SEEKS ITS OWN LEVEL
FUN I FOUND someone like you quite Biblically inclined, I hope your interpretations don't differ as she prooves what I alway knew. It is not my battle but right is truth.
Many people think that a human being is created at the time of conception but this belief is not supported by the bible. The fact that a living sperm penetrates a living ovum resulting in the formation of a living fetus does not mean that the fetus is a living human being. According to the bible, a fetus is not a living person with a soul until after drawing its first breath.
After God formed man in Genesis 2:7, He “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and it was then that the man became a living being”. Although the man was fully formed by God in all respects, he was not a living being until after taking his first breath.
In Job 33:4, it states: “The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Again, to quote Ezekiel 37:5&6, “Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord.”
In Exodus 21:22 it states that if a man causes a woman to have a miscarriage, he shall be fined; however, if the woman dies then he will be put to death. It should be apparent from this that the aborted fetus is not considered a living human being since the resulting punishment for the abortion is nothing more than a fine; it is not classified by the bible as a capital offense.
According to the bible, destroying a living fetus does not equate to killing a living human being even though the fetus has the potential of becoming a human being. One can not kill something that has not been born and taken a breath. This means that a stillborn would not be considered a human being either. Of course, every living sperm has the potential of becoming a human being although not one in a million will make it; the rest are aborted. .
God has decreed, for one reason or another, that at least one-third of all pregnancies shall be terminated by a spontaneous abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy and that a number will be terminated after the first trimester. It would appear that God does not have any more regard for the loss of a fetus than he does for the loss of a placenta or a foreskin despite the fact that these were living tissue as the result of conception.
In a number of versions of the bible, one of the commandments in Exodus 20 that was spoken by God to Moses states: “You shall not kill”. According to the Mosaic text, this should read “You shall not murder” since the bible has commandments stating that people shall be put to death for a number of different offenses. Exodus 21:17 states: “Whoever curses his father or mother shall be put to death.” There are other capital offenses in Exodus 21. Of course, the commandment “You shall not kill” is not present in the commandments written by God on the stone tablets. For those who are not familiar with the commandments on the stone tablets that were placed in the Ark of the Covenant, they are enumerated in Exodus 34. The popular ten commandments that are enumerated in Exodus 20 were spoken by God to Moses who then relayed them to his people; they were never written.
There is nothing in the bible to indicate that a fetus is considered to be anything other than living tissue and, according to scripture, it does not become a living being until after it has taken a breath.
Source: "The bible tells us when a fetus becomes a living being," by Dr. Joe Schwartz
Many cite the scripture Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." God is omnipotent. He has known all of us since before creation. This scripture is irrelevant as it pertains to when a fetus becomes a living being. The same reasoning applies to Psalm 139:13-14.
Numbers 5 describes "the Lord" ordering an abortion. Many argue that this is a misinterpretation. It is clearly stated in verse 22, "May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries."
Before extremists turned the issue of reproductive choice into a political football, views on this matter were weren't nearly so drastic. For some history, read "The ‘biblical view’ that’s younger than the Happy Meal" Then check out, The Not-So-Lofty Origins of the Evangelical Pro-Life Movement. and How I Lost Faith in the “Pro-Life” Movement.
In 1973, Wallie Amos ‘W. A.’ Criswell, President of the Southern Baptist Convention from 1968 to 1970, said this: “I have always felt that it was only after a child was born and had a life separate from its mother that it became an individual person, and it has always, therefore, seemed to me that what is best for the mother and for the future should be allowed."
If you don't like abortion, don't have one. But don't judge others who may be in terrible circumstances that you can't possibly understand. Especially when your judgements are based on a politically motivated and questionable interpretation of the Bible (at best). When women don’t have personal choice over their own reproductive decisions they end up butchered in back alley abortions or thrown in jail for having a miscarriage. Certain types of birth control are outlawed when a fertilized egg is classified as a “person” as well.
Those who say, "If you're a Christian, you have to be against abortion, and therefore you must vote republican," are simply reciting talking points from false teachers.
In the end, if abortion was such a grievous sin Jesus would have mentioned it. He said nothing.
“She heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the doors; They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a wh*re; God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes; 'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose.” ~ Erik Francis Schrody (Everlast), from the song, “What It’s Like.”
The Constitution protects OURSELVES...AND OUR POSTERITY.. The Posterity are future children to come.....Abortion has caused part of American society to become CHILDISH... Having children is good for America...and it helps people to grow up..and learn how to be responsible for someone else besides yourself.....America was better off before abortion and divorces...& selfishness.....NARCISSISM became normal..
What does the Bible say about abortion?
by Ryan Turner
The Bible does not specifically mention the word abortion, but it has a number of significant things to say about unborn children. These Biblical statements indicate that the unborn are persons. Therefore, abortion is wrong since it is killing a human being. A simplified form of our argument is the following:
Premise #1: It is wrong to murder a person. Premise #2: The unborn is a person. Conclusion: Therefore, it is wrong to murder the unborn. Premise #1: It is wrong to murder a person.
There are few objections to the notion that it is wrong to murder a person. Murder is the unlawful taking of someone’s life, while killing is the lawful taking of someone’s life. For just a small sample of the Biblical passages forbidding murder, see Gen. 9:6; Mt. 15:19; 19:18; Mk. 10:19; Lk. 18:20; Jn. 8:44; Acts 3:14; and Rom. 1:28-29; 13:9. Premise #2: The unborn is a person.
It is this premise which is disputed by many in our culture today. However, the Bible clearly teaches that the unborn is a person due to the following reasons. Possession of Personal Attributes
First, the unborn possesses personal attributes such as sin and joy. In Psalm 51:5, David says, “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.” In Luke 1:44, “For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy.” Described by Personal Pronouns
Second, the Bible also uses personal pronouns to describe unborn children. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Matthew 1:20-21 states, “But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.’” Jesus: A Baby at Conception
Third, regarding the conception of Jesus, Matthew 1:20 says, “But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.’” The fact that the angel tells Joseph that “the Child who has been conceived” is “of the Holy Spirit” indicates that Jesus certainly was a person at the moment of conception. Called Children
Fourth, the unborn are called children. Luke 1:41 states, “When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit (1:44).” Protected by the same Punishment as for Adults
Fifth, perhaps the strongest argument against abortion from Scripture is the fact that the same punishment is applicable to someone who kills or injures an unborn child as for one who kills or injures an adult. Exodus 21:22-23 states, “If men struggle with each other and strike a woman with child so that she gives birth prematurely, yet there is no injury, he shall surely be fined as the woman's husband may demand of him, and he shall pay as the judges decide. But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life . . . " This strongly indicates that the Mosaic Law viewed the unborn as persons worthy of the same protection and rights as adults. Called by God before Birth
Sixth, the unborn are even called by God before birth. Almost echoing the prophetic commission of Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5, Isaiah 49:1 says, “Listen to me, O islands, And pay attention, you peoples from afar, the LORD called me from the womb; from the body of my mother He named me.” Known Personally by God just like any other Person
Seventh, the unborn are known personally and intimately by God in the same way He would know any other person. Describing David, Psalm 139:15-16 says, “My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written; the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.” Describing the prophet Jeremiah, Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Conclusion
The Bible definitely teaches that the unborn are persons because the unborn possess personal attributes, are described by personal pronouns, Jesus is called a child at conception, the unborn are called children, are protected by the same punishment as for adults, are called by God before birth, and are known personally by God just like any other person. Since abortion is murdering a person, abortion is morally wrong (Gen. 9:6; Rom. 1:28-29).
Norman Geisler, Systematic Theology.
The abortion industry is loosing participation.
People have figured it out...abortion leads to sexual promiscuity.
Men dont honor women who have sex with them in parking lots..etc..or will use them for a month or two..then move on to the next cow
Abortion has allowed men to take no responsibility..never to marry..to remain perpetual children..to hoard their money instead of sharing with their children..wife...making a stronger United States.
I think in some states..it will be successful
SOLUTION TO ALL OUR PROBLEMS...
STOP FORCING US TO PAY FOR ABORTIONS...No man as the right to force another man to do things that are lawless..and against their morality...
Stop forcing us to pay..then we will stop going after Roe V Wade...simple solution..
SAME WITH GAY MARRIAGE...IT ALREADY EXISTS..BUT THE LIARS TRY TO MAKE YOU THINK THE PEOPLE OF RELIGION..ARE BIGOTS...
Marriage is a RELIGIOUS TERM...
Gays have their UNIONS.
so..what in the hell is the problem here?
Its a few programmed militant gays hired by the globalists..to try to shit on God and his creation...thats all.
Gay already can be married..in CIVIL UNIONS.
MARRIAGE AND CIVIL UNIONS ARE BOTH THE SAME..CONTRACTS..
SO WHY ALL THE HOOPLA?
ITS AL DESIGNED TO SHIT ON MORAL PEOPLE..RELIGIOUS PEOPLE..
AND THAT IS WHAT WE OPPOSE. Kill your baby all you want..but dont as us to participate in your human sacrifice to the devil god
Good thread. This is one of many reasons why I like Rand Paul. His true passion to save millions of babies being slaughtered for no reason at all. What was it over 56 million or more?
Abortion as a means of birth control or "abortion on demand" as Rand Paul put it, is not only wrong, but it has severely cheapened the dignity of life as well. Look in society now, how many children are being murdered daily. This is the result.
I've heard some pro-abortionist say a baby isn't a baby until it's born. Well anyone that's worked in healthcare, or a mothers that's had certain complications giving birth such as, unable to fully dilate or the baby getting stuck in the birthing canal, know this not to be true. Does the OBGYN tell you, well it's not a baby so there's nothing we can do? No he performs a C-section most of the time and does anything to deliver a healthy baby. It doesn't have a BC, but trust me that baby is alive.
I get it that many don't like anyone telling them what to do, but I'm sure that baby doesn't want someone choosing it's death sentence for no reason at all, just because mommy or daddy doesn't want he or she. I understand there are certain circumstances when abortion is necessary. (rape, incest or the health of the mother) and I am all for the use of contraceptives.. but to abort as a means needs to of BC needs to stop.
We need more voices like Rand Paul in congress and I encourage pro-lifers to sign this petition.
IMO every time politicians open their filthy lying gaps, regardless if its pro-life or pro-choice, the only intention is to gain more votes. Not even single one of them cares about aborted children or screwed up lives of women (and their children). Only one thing they care is money in their pockets an how to get their pockets thicker.
Those who care about smtng other than money are not in politics anyway
Those who cheer up to every word those clowns say from the stage are fools who can't see that politicians simply using people feelngs to get their spot in an office.
Politics an morals don't have anything in common.
I don't need a birth certificate to know I am a person.
You sir are a fool and a bigot.
Your anti Jewish sentiment is vile and contemptible. It reeks of ignorance and the kind of filth that all genocides begin with - including the genocide of children in abortion.
The abortionist argument that the embryo or zygote is not a person begs the question of what it is that constitutes being a person. The argument follows that a child, before the 'age of reason' (12 or 13) is not fully human and therefore does not require the same protections under the law. They are but 'potential' human persons and therefore as non-contributing members lack value. It is not until they are old enough and mature enough to participate in fully adult human activities that they become persons.
Therefore all children below grade seven or so can also be considered worthless.
Abortion is primarily for the convenience of the parents and their acquisition of material things, advancement in their occupations and 'freedom' from any imposition on their sexual appetites.
Even if I were to accept the possibilities of the extreme conditions of rape, incest or the like I would advise that one only abortion per person simply on an economic platform. Anyone who wishes to have more than one abortion ought to exact payment from some not for profit organization that raises funds for this purpose and let the 'libertarians' hold counsel with their own.
Why am I forced to finance a medical procedure that I consider equivocal to genocide on moral grounds?
Your points about greed and medical research would easily be a sensible argument for the dissolution of the 'space program' which serves absolutely no one except the military industrial complex who could work in secret during the cold war under the guise of national security. Anything they invented could have been done without such waste and the resources put to education, health and lifting people out of the cycle of poverty.
Your arguments relating pro-abortion (or in my mind pro-murder) being somehow tied to Judaism is so putrid and rancid that it belongs in a cess pool with you and your white supremacist colleagues.
If you looked at my profile you would see that I am a Roman Catholic (which by the way is the oldest Christian tradition and holds to the same reverence to Judaic tradition as did Jesus as one realizes by the last supper being the Passover supper).
The roots of a man doesn't make him any more or less of a man. Pride in one's family background or traditions is not a cause for arrogance but a normal and healthy sense of belonging. That is why traditions are valuable. If someone strays far from their historical traditions they sometimes become lost and feel unable to connect.
That is fine if that same person reasons that their connectedness is not dependent upon race or ethnicity but on being fully human. It requires a new set of values which allow for others to take pleasure in their traditions of dress, dance, music, art, language as well as beliefs. It does not intimidate a mature person but broadens their horizons as they explore the beauty of others traditions.
Sometimes a mixed race person or a person with parents of different religious or cultural backgrounds can be apprehensive about joining one or the other and feels alienated from both. This is a normal reaction as one wishes to please both parents but is unable to do so for fear of abandoning or betraying one or the other.
At some point, as an adult one makes a stand (for whatever reason) and looks for truth so as to align one's own values with something constant and coherent. That was one of the paths that lead me to where I now reside.
It does not prevent me from appreciation of other's perspectives but I know (and I don't know HOW I know) that the unborn child is a child. Therefore it is a human being and the taking of that life is murder.
All the ethnocentric attacks on religious cultural backgrounds or beliefs (Judaism is one of the favorite targets - but so is Catholicism) are but distractions from honest and sincere attempts to find common grounds and agree on basic truths. The squabbling and insulting is detrimental and leads to atrocities like genocide.
If you seek peace work for justice.
