Alan Keyes -- Faith and Freedom Foundation Chairman

Life is a God-given right from fertilization to natural death!

We at the Faith and Freedom Foundation believe the right to life of all innocent persons, from fertilization to natural death, is God-given and unalienable. That is why we consider it to be a moral imperative to fully establish in law that Personhood is granted by our Creator to all human beings from the very beginning of their biological development.

For the principled man or woman, no compromise is possible concerning such a critical matter of life and death. We believe that violators of this supreme right, in words or actions, are unfit for any office of public trust, since any such violation constitutes the breaking of the oath of office and the ultimate destruction of the very basis of our liberty.

Judges who attempt to legislate from the bench, or who abandon the clear principles of our Constitution, must be checked if liberty and justice are to prevail in our society once again.

Personhood of all unborn children must be recognized

Why, you may ask? Because the stated ultimate purpose of the United States Constitution is "to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity." To that end, the Faith and Freedom Foundation recognizes the personhood of all unborn children and their protection by the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments.

The Declaration of Independence states plainly that we are all created equal, endowed by our Creator with our basic human rights. But if human beings can decide who is human and who is not, the doctrine of God-given rights is utterly corrupted.

For these and similar reasons, abortion must be understood as the unjust taking of a human life and a breach of the fundamental principles of our public moral creed. Some people talk about "viability" as a test to determine which human offspring have rights that we must respect, and which do not.

But "might does not make right." So the mere fact that the person in the womb is wholly in its mother's physical power and completely dependent upon her for sustenance gives her no right whatsoever with respect to its life --since the mere possession of physical power can never confer such a right. Therefore, medical procedures resulting in the death of the unborn child, except as an unintended consequence of efforts to save the mother's physical life, are impermissible.

Research must not experiment with human life

No medical advance, and certainly no material profit, justifies denying the claim to humanity of the embryonic human person. Those who try to justify it are driven from one tortured rationalization to another, none addressing the real issue. Being undeveloped, unconscious, unattractive, small or unwanted -- these are not reasons that we accept in any other context for failing to respect the wholeness of moral worth that every human being has from his Creator. Why, therefore, should we accept it in regard to embryonic research?

No -- we do not have the right to take human life merely because it is unconscious, or because it is undeveloped or damaged, or for any other reason that tempts us to deny the equal dignity of all human persons. We ourselves don't want to be used as the basis for experiments without regard for our humanity--and neither should they

Constitutional amendment for life from conception

The most important thing you can do to help the Faith and Freeedom Foundation restore legal protection to the unborn is to champion an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that makes it crystal clear that the right to life of all human beings, from conception to natural death, must be respected. It's simple. It's clear. It must be done. I would issue an executive order immediately granting the full protection of the presidency, and every element of the executive branch, to the life in the womb.

Constitution Preamble includes our unborn posterity

We also need to reiterate the truth that, in the Preamble to our Constitution, it makes clear that the ultimate aim of our government is to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." Our posterity includes many we can't even imagine, who have not yet been born. Surely, it includes those who are sleeping in the womb. I would make sure that no judges were appointed to the Supreme Court who did not strictly respect its mandate to secure the liberties of our posterity.

The Faith and Freedom Foundation thus insists only judges who refuse to legislate from the bench be nominated to the federal courts! It's imperitive that our President be made to see the reason why it's imperitive to nominate only judges who are demonstrably faithful to the judicial role of following only the text of the Constitution, and who not only refuse to legislate from the bench but are committed to reversing prior court decisions where activist judges strayed from the judicial role and legislated from the bench.

No tax funding for organizations promoting abortion

Therefore, no taxpayer dollars should go to any entity that promotes or performs abrotions! Neither should our government give aid to other countrries that would go toward abortion. Until the Personhood amendement is a reality, the Faith and Freedom Foundation will campaign for all funding of Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers be ended, whether corporate or governmental!

Constitutional amendment is a must to stop abortion!

So, you see, we the people MUST have a human life amendment. As stated, the courts have violated the terms of the Constitution. They act as if the unborn are not mentioned in the Constitution, and they lie. In the preamble to the Constitution, regarded as an important and preeminent statement of the goals and purposes and principles of the whole form of government we have, the Constitution says that our aim is to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Our posterity are those not yet born.

Do everything possible to overthrow Roe vs. Wade!

Join with the Faith and Freedom Foundation in pledging to do everything in ourf power to overthrow Roe vs. Wade and get us back where we belong in the acknowledgment of God. We must redouble our resolve, in the face of the great opportunity God has given us, starting with the integrity and courage of Roy Moore in Alabama.

Think of it this way: It's not OK to kill child of, say, six; but it IS OK to kill child in the womb? I remember a civics lesson I gave to fifth graders at a New Hampshire school: "If I were to lose my mind right now and pick one of you up and bash your head against the floor and kill you, would that be right?" A chorus of "No!" It's wrong to kill children, I said, and asked a child, "At what age is it right to kill children? Think it was OK to kill you when you were six?" The child shook his head no.

"Think it was OK to kill you when you were 6 months," I asked. "You sure? Because we live in a country right now where according to some of our courts and some of our politicians, it is OK," I said.

Our rights come from God, and Him alone!

We human beings don't have the right to take away that right from any human being, including the human beings who haven't quite got here yet. Because we have denied freedom to children in the womb who haven't yet gotten to this world, freedom will be denied to you and to your brothers and sisters and to your children.

Summing it up: Abortion is unjust and immoral!

If the Declaration of Independence states our creed, there can be no right to abortion, since it means denying the most fundamental right of all, to human offspring in the womb. But if human beings can decide who is human and who is not, the doctrine of God-given rights is utterly corrupted. Abortion is the unjust taking of a human life and a breach of the fundamental principles of our public moral creed.

Mothers have no right to take a fetus' life! Some people talk about "viability" as a test to determine which offspring have rights that we must respect and which do not. The mere fact that the individual in the womb is wholly in its mother's physical power and completely dependent upon her for sustenance gives her no right whatsoever with respect to its life. Medical procedures resulting in the death of an unborn child, except as a collateral and unintended consequence of efforts to save the mother's physical life, are therefore impermissible.

Abortion issue epitomizes corruption of freedom

I talk about abortion not just because of the issue in and of itself, but because I think it epitomizes the deeper issue, which is the corruption of our idea of freedom--a corruption that is really killing us. I think abortion is a very dramatic example of that corruption and its consequences, because obviously that has direct consequences for the heart that we need to sustain the family. If we harden our hearts against our offspring, and if we aggrandize our self-fulfillment to the extent that we are willing to kill our offspring, that is the extreme case of the self-centered and egotistical and self-worshipping concept of freedom I think is being promoted in various ways in the society.

We are not going to remain a free people if we arrogate to ourselves the right to destroy the rights of others. And that is exactly what we are doing when we embrace the so-called "pro-choice" agenda--which is actually just the pro-abortion agenda.

The Faith and Freedom Foundation makes an exception only for the physical life of the mother. Given the unalienable right to life, including self-preservation, we see no way in principle to avoid making this exception. Personally, I would ACCEPT the rape and incest exceptions only as a matter of political necessity if that is the best legislation we could achieve at the time. I see no grounds in principle for making these exceptions, but as a matter of political prudence it would be suicidal for the pro-life movement to reject these people.
