Resolution Calling for Action on the Right to Life Act

Whereas, The America First Party affirms in its platform that "principle espoused in the Declaration of Independence, that we are all endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, and among them is the right to life;" and,

Whereas, we hold that "The right to life is not superseded by any foreign or domestic law;" and,

Whereas, "The America First Party recognizes that life begins at conception and continues until natural death;" and,

Whereas, "We support the overturning of Roe v. Wade and seek the passage and vigorous enforcement of legislation which protects the right to life, regardless of age or state of gestation;" and,

Whereas, Justice Harry Blackmun stated in section IX of the majority opinion in the case of Roe v. Wade, "If personhood is established, the case for legalized abortion collapses, for the fetus' right to life would be guaranteed by the 14th Amendment"; and

Whereas, "The Right to Life Act", House Resolution 552, was introduced more than one year ago and has languished in Committee ever since, with no action taken since it was referred to the Constitution Subcommittee; and,

Whereas, "The Right to Life Act" is a simply worded bill that, if enacted into law, would implement equal protection under law for the right to life of each born and preborn human person; and,

Whereas it is disgraceful that only 77 members of Congress have chosen to co-sponsor this important civil rights legislation, none of them Senators;

Now therefore be it Resolved by the America First National Committee:

That We call upon all members of Congress who claim to be Pro-Life or to be defenders of civil rights to provide proof of that claim through their co-sponsorship of "The Right to Life Act"; and,

That We call upon at least one Senator to introduce identical companion legislation in that body; and,

That we call upon Congress to take immediate action to bring "The Right to Life Act" to the floor of both chambers for a vote; and,

That we call upon all members of Congress who claim to be Pro-Life or to be defenders of civil rights to vote for this bill so that it may be presented to the President; and,

That we call upon President Bush to sign this bill into law as soon as he receives it; and,

That we condemn any member of Congress, the President, any organization, or citizen who claims to be Pro-Life who prevents these actions from being taken, either by opposition or negligence and apathy.

(Adopted by the America First National Committee on February 21, 2006)
