Right To Life
We believe that the right to life is the first inalienable right, without which there can be no other rights. We believe that all human life has intrinsic worth and therefore support vigorous legal protection at all stages of life, from the unborn child to the elderly to the infirmed and disabled.
We believe the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection applies to unborn children. Unborn children should be classified as legal persons, not as legal property.
We believe Roe v. Wade should be reversed through judicial action or through the passage of a Constitutional Human Life Amendment.
We oppose the use of public funds to pay for abortions or to fund organizations that advocate for abortion.
We believe adoption is a loving and viable alternative to abortion. We extend compassion to women who have experienced abortion and support pregnancy centers that help women in need.
We believe any pursuit of medical advances should be pro-life. We, therefore, oppose research on fetal tissue obtained from induced abortions, human embryonic stem cell research, as well as trafficking in the organs and body parts of aborted babies.
We believe public or private efforts to “create” a human being via cloning should be opposed, as well as the appropriation of federal or state funds for any such research.
We believe human trafficking is morally reprehensible and should be condemned. Rigorous efforts should be made to eradicate the practice, and perpetrators and enablers should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We extend compassion to the victims and survivors of human trafficking and encourage efforts to help them rebuild their lives and protect them from potential re-victimization.
