LIFE AT CONCEPTION ACT GAINS SUPPORT IN CONGRESS
The culture of life is growing once again! After 40 years since abortion was sanctioned by the Supreme Court of the United States in Roe v. Wade, Americans are overwhelmingly calling for the respect for life.
In the Spring newsletter of the National Pro-Life Alliance President, Martin Fox, the Life at Conception Act has over 160 cosponsors in Congress. According to the Roe v. Wade decision the court did not delate abortion by itself to be a Constitutional Right.
“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 went on to say:
“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.”
And so in the 113th Session of Congress both houses have introduced a “Life at Conception Act.” Senator Rand Paul, (R-KY) introduced the Act into the Senate, while Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA) have both introduced the Act in the House.
You can help. Call (202) 224-3121 and ask your Congressmen to co-sponsor H.R. 23 and H.R. 1091, and ask your Senators to co-sponsor S. 583 today.

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES SUPPORTS HOBBY LOBBY
Everyone is talking about the ruling that privately owned companies do not have to provide contraceptions to their employees. This is clearly another advance in restoring the culture of life in our society. And I congratulate the Green and Hahn families for standing strong and courageously for their religious beliefs. I also thank them for pursuing this issue and for not just accepting what is intolerable to us all.
However, one MUST take a step backwards and wonder when did businesses loose the right to choose what benefits they can afford, or desire to give to their employees? Who gave central government the right to dictate to the individual or the small business what they must buy or what they must provide?
Isn’t this a major loss of freedom? It just so happens to include religious freedom. And what about the side effects of mandated contraception. Anything foreign that invades the body, be it chemical or physical, challenges the natural immunity of the body. What about the side effects? Just wondering…
