October 13, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The Democrat Party has long facilitated the deaths of 1.5 million unborn American children annually. Today, the Democrat Party not only embraces abortion on demand throughout nine months of pregnancy, but also promises to make all American taxpayers fund it, and promotes the infanticide of babies who survive abortion.

At the urging of his party, presidential nominee Joe Biden reversed his onetime opposition to taxpayer funded abortion, and also promised to enshrine Roe v. Wade in federal law to prevent its reversal. Biden’s choice of Kamala Harris as running mate signals that a Democrat win in November will unleash not only a radical expansion of unrestricted abortion on demand, but also a rabid persecution of pro-life advocates.

Kamala Harris was California’s Attorney General when David Daleiden, director of the Center for Medical Progress, presented evidence that Planned Parenthood was illegally selling aborted baby body parts. Rather than investigate Planned Parenthood, Harris ordered law enforcement to raid Mr. Daleiden’s home and investigate him. Kamala Harris’s political career has long been funded by Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. Daleiden has since sued Harris alleging that she conspired with Planned Parenthood to violate his civil rights.

Protecting our inalienable right to life is the overriding human rights issue of all time because the right to life is the foundation of all other human rights. Reason, Scripture and Apostolic Tradition agree that it is always and everywhere wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human life. There is no greater crime.

Mother Teresa, a living saint who embodied social justice and the Beatitudes, understood this. She often decried the evil of abortion stating, “A child is a gift of God … And if we accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion.”

PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):

With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.

We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!

PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):

In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.

Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.

In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”

We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.

PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):

Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)

PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):

In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.

Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.

Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.

_____________________________________________________________________________

More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred. 

It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it. 

Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved. 

However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.

According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.

We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.

Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.

Roe v. Wade must come to an end!

Similarly, the US Catholic Bishops document entitled Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship states, “The direct and intentional destruction of innocent human life is always wrong and is not just one issue among many.” Pope Benedict XVI elaborated, “Not all moral issues have the same weight as abortion and euthanasia. There may be legitimate diversity of opinion among Catholics about war, the death penalty, immigration … but not with regard to abortion and euthanasia.”

Increasingly, Americans also recognize that the Democrat Party’s radical abortion stance is part of its march toward socialism. Socialism is a Marxist form of government that violates human dignity and destroys individual rights. Since the Democratic Party first removed God from its party’s platform in 2012, it has increasingly promoted an atheistic socialist form of government that promises a man-made “equality for all” including free education and free healthcare.

As Margaret Thatcher once quipped, “The problem with socialism is that you always run out of someone else’s money,” and the results are fatally disastrous. Socialism is recognized as the leading man-made cause of misery and death across human history.

The current administration, in contrast, has fought for and continues to promote an America rooted in the Judeo-Christian heritage of our Constitution; an America governed by the rule of law based upon our God-given inalienable rights. President Trump has fought for the protection of the unborn, appointed justices faithful to God’s natural law, stood for parental rights and school choice, strengthened our military, secured our borders while working to improve legal immigration procedures, and negotiated fair trade agreements to improve our economy. Most importantly, our President has fought to protect our right to conduct our affairs in the Public Square and workplace without discrimination against our religious faith.

For all American citizens of good will — especially those who are faithful Christians — who value our God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and the Bill of Rights, particularly our First Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech, Religion and Association, the choice to make this November has never been clearer.
