Unborn Child Amendment – Amending the US Constitution Through State Legislatures

There can be no blacker blot on America’s judicial history than Roe vs. Wade and subsequent judicial rulings that extend the age of the Unborn Child beyond the first trimester during which the mother can abort, with impunity, an unwanted Child. This incredibly evil ruling has effectively declared war on the Unborn Child, the father of the Unborn Child, the grandparents, and the young mother who in many cases understands little or nothing about the consequences of her choice. Consequences that are triggered after she gives birth to other children who she learns to love.

Congress and the States cannot overturn Roe vs. Wade with incremental legislation. When the Supreme Court mandated a “constitutional amendment” from the bench in Roe vs. Wade, it created a new “Constitution”, without ratification by the States. It removed the inalienable right to life for the Unborn Child and replaced it with an un-enumerated right of privacy for the mother.

it will take several years for the States to complete their Legislative Calls on Congress instructing Congress to convene the “Single Issue” Unborn Child Amendment Convention. Our strategy is to pressure Congress into sending the Amendment to the States for ratification voluntarily. As the States complete their Legislative Calls, Congress will realize that it will soon be forced, by the States, to convene a “Single Issue” Unborn Child Amendment Convention. It is possible that Congress, under pressure from Legislative Calls, will send the Amendment to the States for ratification before it is forced to convene a Convention. If this happens the Calling States are agreeing to withdraw their Calls for a Convention. In either case, whether Congress sends the Amendment to the States for ratification or is forced to convene a Convention, the Unborn Child will be given standing as a “Person” in the United States Constitution after the Amendment is ratified.

The States alone have the authority to “limit” the agenda and authority of a Federal Convention. The States alone can Call for a “Single Issue” Convention by agreeing among themselves the purpose, terms, conditions, duration, and agenda for the Convention. Congress does not have the authority to define a “Single Issue” Convention. Congress’ authority, under Article V of the United States Constitution, empowers it to convene a Convention as Called for and defined by the Several States. The Several States alone have the authority to enforce the terms and conditions set forth in this Legislative Call and Agreement between the Calling States for the Unborn Child Amendment Convention.
