Overview

Abortion: What The Founding Fathers Thought About It by Duane L. Ostler

This book discusses the views of the founding fathers against abortion, including their views on the anti-abortion 'concealment' laws in their day. It also describes how the common law abortion rule was misinterpreted by the court in Roe v. Wade, since it was solely intended to be a rule of evidence by which an abortionist could be convicted. Most importantly, the book tells how the Ninth Amendment was intended to incorporate the founders' views of natural law as part of the Constitution. Natural law in their day, as expressed by such writers as Locke and Montesquieu, required protection of the unborn from the moment of conception.

I understand that women need choices but is the best solution throwing away a tiny baby? No. Put the baby up for adoption have counseling just dont kill the baby. You will fill guilty. DEATH is not the solution to anything. Especially when it concerns sweet babies who are meant to be CHERISHED and LOVED. ABORTION IS MURDER. Choose life because life is precious. Im proud to be a thirteen year old Catholic girl who believes in this. In the TRUTH.
