SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT:
This important Supreme Court case brings one of the most significant challenges to Roe v. Wade in years. In short, the issue in question with the case is whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional.
Our brief argues: "Abortion terminates the life of an independent human being in the early stages of development. The Court should reject the viability line, step down from its inappropriate role as ex officio medical board, and discard the fallacy that women need access to abortion to participate in public life on an equal basis with men." "It is time for this Court to recognize, respect, and protect the life of every vulnerable, defenseless child developing in the womb of his or her mother."
