Time to Rein in the Supreme Court‏

from Steve Stockman
United States Congressman

For more than 40 years, nine unelected men and women on the Supreme Court have played god with innocent human life. They have invented laws that condemned more than 61 million babies to painful deaths without trial for the crime of being “inconvenient.”

The Supreme Court has permitted paid assassins to stab, burn, dissect, poison and throw these innocent babies away like trash. That’s why it is so urgent you sign the petition to your two Senators and Congressman.

You see, with your petition and support, Congress can pass a bill that will use Congress' power under Article III, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution to take away the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction on abortion.

It is frightening where we’re headed. The calloused attitude toward life by our highest government officials is dragging our whole society down.

I’m sure that by now you have heard of the Gosnell case. In his filthy, bloodstained “House of Horrors,” abortionist Kermit Gosnell routinely delivered babies, then killed them.

Any sane person can see the horror of killing a newborn.  But the reality is if Gosnell had killed babies in the womb and then delivered them, he would have done what abortionists do every day – protected by the Supreme Court’s absurd “right to privacy.”

That’s why it’s so important you and I do all we can.

In the past, we pro-lifers have limited ourselves to protecting a life here and there -- passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases. But pro-life organizations always tiptoed around the Supreme Court, hoping they wouldn’t be offended.

Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.

That’s why I am hoping you will support the National Pro-Life Alliance, a proven, aggressive pro-life group, in a dramatic offensive to save lives. With your help, the National Pro-Life Alliance’s ultimate plan is to pass a bill that by itself will save more innocent lives than all the reform legislation passed in the last 42 years . . . COMBINED!

It’s called the Sanctity of Life Act

This important legislation is a companion bill to the Life at Conception Act, which as you know, would use the Supreme Court’s own language to overturn Roe v. Wade.

But the Sanctity of Life Act would complement the Life at Conception Act by using the power given to Congress in Article III, Sections 1 and 2 of the U.S. Constitution to strip all federal courts of their power to judicially shield abortion.

Congress has always had the authority under the Constitution to limit the courts’ jurisdiction. However, until recently we haven’t had the votes in either House of Congress. But in the last two elections pro-lifers played a crucial role in electing new Congressmen who are pledged to defend life.

Now I look forward to the day when a pro-life President and Congress will end abortion-on-demand once and for all. By turning up the heat through a massive, national, grass-roots campaign in this session of Congress, one of two things will happen.

If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.

But even if the Sanctity of Life Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will send another crew of radical pro-abortionists down to defeat in the next election.

Either way, the unborn win . . . unless you do nothing. 

That’s why your immediate action is needed.
