Our Justice Center this week seeks to overturn Roe v Wade.  Roe is the US Supreme Court decision permitting the killing of babies in the womb.   For the first time in a long while, the Court plans to review a state law regulating abortion. We plan to file a brief in the Supreme Court on behalf of Right to Life in this important case. Please Pray.  

In this case we call on the Court to overrule its diabolical decision legalizing abortion.  Please Pray.

Here is an excerpt summarizing some our arguments.

… resolution of the question before this Court presupposes the existence of a 14thAmendment liberty interest in abortion. This presupposition is wrong. 

This Court in Roe and its progenitor precedents incorrectly concluded that the meaning of the 14thAmendment included a liberty interest in the right to abort an unborn child as part of one’s personal autonomy.  Not a single word uttered or written in the promulgation of the 14th Amendment, however, even remotely suggests that the Amendment includes a right to abortion. Undeniably, it is clear from the historical discussion that the authors of the Amendment never contemplated including such a diabolical entitlement.  Indeed, judicially contriving such a liberty interest destabilizes representative constitutional governance because it: 1) exceeds the scope of the Judicial Power, 2) bypasses constitutionally required processes for amending the Constitution, 3) undermines the institutional legitimacy of the judiciary, and 4) fails to adequately address the profound government interest in protecting unborn human life.

Petitioner contends that simply because the erroneous decisions in Roe and its progeny occurred, that they must stand. That is wrong. Incorrectly decided extra-constitutional decisions must not stand.  When, as here, the factual and legal grounds for a court decision are  incorrect, policy arguments supporting stare decisis do not justify perpetuation of those errors.  Likewise, when a court decision extra-constitutionally creates a rule, policy arguments supporting stare decisis lack merit.

Because the 14th Amendment does not include the liberty to kill an unborn child, the Louisiana law at issue cannot violate the 14th Amendment. This Court should, therefore, overrule Roe and any of its progeny holding otherwise.

Please Pray.
