|Although the federal judiciary makes abortion
legal, many people who are "pro-life" resist abolishing
the federal government because they see this as aiding the
"pro-choice" forces. They believe "the
government" is necessary to prevent abortions by threatening
violence against those who procure or deliver them.
Abolishing the institutionalization of violence which we call
"the government" is obviously a very
"pro-choice" position. But The
Conspiracy! is pro-life.
This page explains the manufactured conflict between
"pro-life" and "pro-choice."
- There is something tragically wrong when a nation's
mothers kill their own babies a million times a year;
four thousand babies are killed every day in America.
- Polls indicate Americans oppose 90% of all abortions
which take place.
- It is never
necessary to intentionally kill a baby in order to save
the life of a mother. Never.
- Many pro-abortionists say that abortion should be
legal, and rare." Why should the
exercise of a "constitutional right" be
"rare?" This is like a government censor
saying freedom of the press should be
"rare," or a pro-lynching KKK member saying trials
by jury should be "rare." Abortions
should be rare because they are murder.
- Government force -- fines, imprisonment,
or execution -- is
not the solution to abortion.
- If a pregnant woman is pressured to get an abortion
by her abusive so-called "boyfriend," by her
status-conscious parents, and by a greedy abortionist,
she should not then be locked up in prison with a
carjacker and a prostitute.
- The government says it is
"unconstitutional" to teach students that
human beings are created in the image of God, and that
God says not to kill them. Threatening such
mal-educated students with jail will not cause them to

abortion without raising taxes to support an army
of anti-abortion "jackbooted thugs."

Abortion is never necessary to "preserve
the life of the mother."
If a pregnancy is not developing normally and the mother's
life is in imminent danger, then the baby's life is also in
danger; if the mother dies, so will the baby. If the baby must be
removed from its present location to save the mother's life, the
baby can be re-placed somewhere where growth can continue, if not
in the mother, then in an incubator.
Attempting to preserve the baby's life at this point will not
endanger any mother. Deliberately killing the
baby is never necessary. Every attempt should be made to
preserve the life of the baby. The death of an unborn baby should
always be a tragic and unfortunate consequence of underdeveloped
medical technology, never an intentional choice. [return]
