we've got signatures, help us get to 10,000 by November 28, 2008
Congressman Steve King is heading a National Pro-Life Alliance and wants to gather 1 million signatures nationwide asking the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to pass a law stating that the life of an unborn baby begins at conception.
In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court said in Roe vs. Wade: "once Congress establishes the personhood of unborn children, they must be protected by the 14th amendment to the constitution which explicitly says: "nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property."
It has been clearly established by the medical community that life does begin at conception.
The U.S. Senate currently has 29 senators who have voted pro-family on every issue. The U.S. House currently has 125 congressmen who have voted pro-family on every issue.
As Citizens we need to let our senators know that we want them to vote in favor of a Life at Conception Act, and to do everything necessary to ultimate passage in the U.S. Congress.
The Citizen's Petition to Reverse Roe vs. Wade to U.S. House of

WHEREAS: The 14th Amendment to the Constitution 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 law"; and
WHEREAS: In Roe, the Supreme Court admitted: "If....personhood [for the
unborn] is established, the appellant's case, of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [fourteenth] Amendment..." (Roe v. Wade [410 US 113 at 156-7]) ; and
WHEREAS: Science is clear that human life begins at conception when
a new human being formed; and
WHEREAS: The American people oppose abortion-on-demand and want innocent human life to be protected especially when it is most
WHEREAS: It belongs to Congress to resolve the question the Supreme Court said IT cannot resolve; and
WHEREAS: A Life at Conception Act, by declaring unborn children are persons entitled to constitutional protection, will rescue millions of unborn children from dying through abortion-on-demand;
THEREFORE: I urge you to cast every vote for a Life at Conception Act, and to do everything possible to bring it to win ultimate passage in the United States Congress.
