Abortion is illegal. And protecting, committing, funding, or participating in the act is criminal. Period.
I do not make this statement because the Constitution says it, but because God says it.
The Bible was the chief source of law and morality for the founders of our nation. They understood that God's protective laws, such as "thou shalt not murder," were not negotiable.
The truth of my assertion can easily be seen in America's founding documents, for example:
In the Declaration of Independence, our founders were acknowledging a "self-evident truth," wherein they stated, "All men are created equal with certain unalienable rights." Did you catch that? They were not "born equal," but rather "created equal" by their Creator with certain unalienable rights – chiefly, life. And we all know every human being is created in the womb of a mother.
Declaration of Independence signer, Benjamin Rush, who was also a doctor, stated that life's "first motion is produced by the stimulus of the male seed upon the female ovum ... No sooner is the female ovum thus set in motion, and the fetus formed, than its capacity of life is supported."
In the Constitution, we find the framers securing and guaranteeing protection of all life in the 5th Amendment: "No person shall be deprived of life…without due process of law." The 14th Amendment also states, "nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…" This applies to every living person, and we know abortion violates this right by killing babies before they're born, let alone before due process.
John Locke, who highly influenced the Founders' views, extracted from the laws of nature and specified individuals are: "not to kill another man; not to know more women than one; not to procure abortion; not to expose their children; not to take from another what is his …"
The obvious truth Locke was asserting by stating abortion violates natural law was that abortion did, in fact, violate another human being's right to live. He then wrote in a letter to the Bishop of Worcester, "The body of an embryo, dying in the womb, may be very little, not the thousandth part of an ordinary man. For since from the first conception and beginning of formation, it has life."
Today, we know far more about our biological development than Locke could; we can actually see our children inside their mothers, we can hear their hearts beating when they're no bigger than jellybeans. We can craft 3-D models of your child's face before they're born.
Fortunately, Americans no longer have to argue about whether our preborn children are really human beings: Planned Parenthood admits it freely, when they use the parts of aborted babies as "donors."
What Planned Parenthood actually asserts is that it is right for them to kill these preborn humans, because some humans are worthy of life, and others are worth more dead, in pieces. This outrageous claim violates God's Law, natural law, and therefore American law, in every way.
