LIFE At Conception Act – A Primer

Support The LIFE At Conception Act

Over the years it’s become obvious that legislation that protects every baby from abortion is needed.

And your hard work has brought legislation that goes farther than any bill or law has dared to go in over 40 years – the outright abolition of abortion in Alaska by defining babies in the womb as Natural Persons.  

Why choose a Personhood bill?  It’s simple, really.

Take a look at the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution:

“No state shall… deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;

nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

But that’s not all.  Alaska’s Constitution tells us that:

This constitution is dedicated to the principles that all persons have a natural
right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the enjoyment of the rewards
of their own industry; that all persons are equal and entitled to equal rights,
opportunities, and protection under the law; and that all persons have
corresponding obligations to the people and to the State.

Do we really need a Personhood bill?  YES.

Because under the Alaska State Law, children in the womb are not natural persons.  They’re more like property.

And like other property, their mothers can dispose of them whenever she wants, in the privacy of a doctor’s (abortionist) office.

Therefore, they have can’t enjoy the, “right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness,” like the Alaska State Constitution say that you and I can.

The LIFE At Conception Act, HB250, defines children in the womb – from the point of conception to birth – as Natural Persons.

NOT PROPERTY.

PERSONS.
