Reps should be supporting Life at Conception Act

Editor,

This is an open letter to Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell and Rep. Rick Larson:

Please join others in Congress and co-sponsor the Life at Conception Act.

Since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, approximately one million babies each year have died through abortion. In Roe, the Supreme Court admitted that if personhood for the unborn is established, the case for abortion collapses since the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the 14th Amendment. The justices also stated that it belongs to Congress to resolve this question and not the Supreme Court.

Now is the time for Congress to resolve this issue. The Life at Conception Act, by declaring that unborn babies are persons legally entitled to constitutional protection, will rescue millions of unborn babies from dying by abortion-on-demand.

Not only will this act save millions of children from an untimely death, it will also save millions of men and women from the emotional distress caused by the regret of having an abortion, and it will save the physical well-being of many women who experience post-abortion medical complications.

For those who seek emotional healing from abortion or other tragedies such as sexual abuse, please contact Healing Hearts Ministries International at healinghearts.org

I urge you all, my representatives — my voice — in Congress, to co-sponsor, insist that it comes to a vote and cast your vote for Life at the Conception Act.

Lorinda Newton

Clinton
