Abolish Abortion in Texas
Abolish Abortion in Texas
We the people of Texas call upon Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, Ruth R. Hughs, Ken Paxton, the members of the Texas Senate and the Texas House to act immediately in light of these facts to abolish abortion in the State of Texas.
- Whereas, abortion is the murder of an unborn child.
- Whereas, such an act is barbaric, a violation of the commands of God written in stone, scripture and the human heart.
- Whereas Roe v. Wade, as a judicial opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States has been the means by which the federal government has justified and legalized the murder of unborn children, it is an illegitimate decision violating the commands of God, the conscience of humankind, and the Constitution of the United States.
- Whereas, the states unjustly acquiesced to the ruling of the Supreme Court and have permitted and regulated abortion, they share culpability with the Court and the Government of the United States for designating the unborn as less than human, treating life in the womb as less than life, and committing a crime far worse than the relegation of African slaves at the time of the founding of the United States to a mere three fifths of a person, due to denying their full personhood.
- Whereas, Scripture itself, confirms the full personhood of the unborn child by providing capital punishment for those who harm a pregnant woman causing the death of her child, as well as the positive testimony of John the Baptist praising Jesus while still in the womb.
- Whereas, medical science exposes the myth behind this denial of the full personhood of the child and the farce that the child is only potential life, by fact that the child is growing, responds to stimuli, has a designated sex from conception, and meets every marker used to define life and humanity from the earliest moments of existence.
- Whereas, abortion proponents implicitly recognize the humanity of the unborn child by making defenses for their views grounded in arguments that forcing a woman to continue her pregnancy is akin to compulsory organ donation or that the child is a trespasser who can be removed from the premises, to even affirming that the child is a human being but the mother’s rights trump the rights of the child.
- Whereas, state law itself acknowledges the full humanity of the child in the majority of jurisdictions within the United States providing criminal prosecution and civil suit to anyone who either willfully or accidentally so injures a woman as to cause the early termination of her pregnancy or should a pregnant woman be killed her crime is prosecuted as double homicide.
- Whereas, it is universally acknowledged that the unborn child is a human life and not mere potential life by the fact that no one refers to their “wanted child” as potential life during pregnancy, nor do they say they are carrying a fetus, or marking a calendar for the day that full humanity fully invests in the child, but rather universally refer to the baby being carried in the womb, state they are “eating for two” and in numerous other ways demonstrate the reality of a child already in existence and maturing within the womb of his/her mother.
- Therefore, given that it is universally known that the unborn child is a human life, not mere potential life, but an individual in possession of one’s own humanity, the State of Texas has the responsibility to protect the life of the unborn child with all the force of law, criminal penalties, as afforded to every other person in the State of Texas by including abortion as a crime within homicide statutes.
- Therefore, given that Texas law already recognizes the full humanity of the child with criminal prosecutions and through civil suits when a child is killed within the womb of its mother, the State of Texas ought to end the schizophrenia of protecting such life in one set of circumstances and regulating the murder of such life in another based upon a capricious label such as “wanted” or “unwanted” instead of upon the inherent humanity of the child.
- Therefore, given even the abortion proponents argumentation of the implicit humanity of the child by asserting that the child is a “person” seeking an organ donation or a “person” capable of trespassing, the State of Texas should affirm this fact of personhood by providing proper legal protections for these “persons” as the State of Texas would in any other person under the law.
- Therefore, since medical science, Texas law punishing harm, injury and death to the unborn child, and the abortion proponents own argumentation affirms the full humanity and personhood of the child, the State of Texas should nullify the Roe v. Wade decision, which in its own opinion stated, “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case, of course, collapses, [410 U.S. 113, 157] for the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.” In other words, if it is shown that the unborn child is a human person, then Roe’s decision is void and the unborn child is due all protections under the law.
- Therefore, since Scripture itself, affirms the full personhood of the unborn child, and since every elected official in the State of Texas answers to an authority higher than the Supreme Court and the Government of the United States; one day giving an account of their actions prior to meeting either their eternal judgment or reward, the elected officials ought to act with fear and trembling knowing that mere politically expedient or the pragmatically easy votes will not go unpunished in the light of their failure to right the wrongs under their acquiescence to Roe.
- Therefore, since abortion is a crime worse than slavery, with over a 150 children being murdered each day in Texas, the State of Texas has the responsibility to act immediately to end this crime with much more diligence and fervor than the federal government acted to end slavery, given that lives literally depend upon the State of Texas acting.
- Therefore, since Roe v. Wade is the judicial means of compelling states to permit and regulate the murder of children in the State of Texas, the Texas Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, the Texas Senate and the Texas House have the responsibility to reject such a ruling as patently immoral and nullify it as having any bearing in the State of Texas instead of acquiescing to the ruling in a manner akin to those under Hitler who justified the murders on their watch as merely “following orders.”
- Therefore, given the fact that abortion is a barbaric act, a violation of the commands of God written in stone, scripture and the human heart, the Government of the State of Texas is under divine judgment for each life lost and in willful rebellion against their creator to whom they will have to give an account every moment they allow Roe to be the legal standard within the State of Texas.
Therefore, since abortion is the murder of an unborn child, the Government of the State of Texas has the duty to end the practice of abortion in the State of Texas by passing legislation abolishing abortion, by providing criminal penalties for those who perform and those procure abortions, as one would any individual who murders a child or a mother who is guilty of infanticide. We the undersigned acknowledge these truths and call upon Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, Ruth R. Hughs, Ken Paxton, the members of the Texas Senate and the Texas House to move into emergency session for the purpose of abolishing abortion and providing legal protections to all the unborn within the State of Texas.
