IN THE SENATE
Senator David Ho introduced the following bill which was referred to the committee on ______________________________________________.
This bill will make abortion illegal in the United States.
The Congress hereby finds and declares that Abortion is considered to be unconstitutional according to the 14th Amendment. The 14th Amendment states that everyone in the United States is granted all legal protections already granted to citizens.1 Aborting the fetus is murdering a citizen of the United States. These rights extend to anyone within the boundaries of United States. The unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. The United States in law should support for a human life amendment to the Constitution, and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to unborn children. The United States shall also oppose the use of public revenues for abortion and will eliminate funding for organizations which advocate or support abortion. Abortion effectively violates an unborn baby’s 14th Amendment rights to life, liberty, and property, as well as due process and equal protection.
Abortion is murder as referring to unborn babies as "fetus," "embryo," or "zygote," may be scientifically correct, but does not change the fact that these are human beings. Though called "parasite," "blob," or "tissue," give each fetus about 266 days after conception and see what emerges from his mother's womb. A baby’s nerves are in place after 6-8 weeks after conception. The chemicals necessary to send messages over nerve pathways to the brain are present by 12 weeks.2 Abortion clinics have lied as many abortionists have admitted that abortion is murder. Former abortion clinic worker Kathy Sparks has stated that “We lied... We would say it is not a baby yet and that it is just tissue, like a clot...”3 M.D. Benjamin Kalish has stated that during an abortion operation, he feels a little peculiar about it because he is a physician and is trained to conserve life, but here he is destroying/preventing it.4 Professor Camille Pagila from the University of Philadelphia has stated that abortion is murder as it is the extermination of the powerless by the powerful.5 Aborting a fetus is preventing life from happening and that is considered killing life itself. This bill will protect those who are unable to protect themselves, the innocent fetuses within the womb of women.
The argument that abortion is needed to save a mother’s life is a common misperception. Out of 1,000 women procuring abortion, only two cite protecting their own lives as the reason for the abortion.6 Abortion is rarely necessary to save a woman’s life. Furthermore, four hundred and eighty physicians have signed a public declaration stating: “ I agree that there is never a situation in the law or in the ethical practice of medicine where a preborn child’s life be intentionally destroyed by a procured abortion for the purpose of saving the life of the mother.”7 It can be agreed that there are a number of conditions that threaten the pregnant woman’s life, but with many of these threats, they can be treated. If under rare circumstances such that dangerous conditions that threaten the mother’s life are present, an abortion will be permitted.
Abortion is actually considered unsafe. Women are 3.5 times more likely to die over the next year after an abortion. One third of women also suffer health complications, potentially life-threatening complications, and more. Such complications include increases in depression, increases in rate of suicide, higher infertility rate, or permanent infertility, and breast cancer.8 In fact, for women aborting a first pregnancy, the risk of breast cancer nearly doubles after a first-trimester abortion and is multiplied with two or more abortions.9 Women are prone to many of these risks because...
