Whereas: Because of Roe v. Wade, more than 56 million unborn children have died through abortion; and

Whereas: In Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court declared it could not resolve "the difficult question of when life begins"; and

Whereas: The 14th Amendment to the Constitution states: no state shall “deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law;” and

Whereas: In Roe, the Supreme Court admitted: "If personhood [for the unborn] is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [Fourteenth] Amendment..." (Roe v. Wade [410 US 113 at 156-7]); and

Whereas: It belongs to the State of North Carolina to resolve the question the Supreme Court said it cannot resolve; and

Whereas: A Life at Conception Act, by declaring that unborn children are persons legally entitled to constitutional protection, will rescue millions of unborn children from dying by abortion-on-demand; and

Therefore: I urge you to cosponsor and cast every vote for a Life at Conception Act, and to do everything necessary to win ultimate passage in the North Carolina General Assembly and in Congress.
