‘Ignore Roe’ and the holocaust of the Preborn

January 22, 2012 marks the 39th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision which opened the floodgates to the holocaust of the Preborn. Abort73.com reports on its Facts About Abortion: U.S. Abortion Law page that:

The history of abortion in the United States is far more complicated than most people imagine. It has been an issue of varying contention in this nation for the last 200 years. Nevertheless, abortion has never enjoyed such universal protection under the law as it has for these last three decades. As it stands today, American women have the legal right to obtain an abortion in all 50 states, through all nine months of pregnancy, for virtually any reason at all. This has been true since January of 1973 when the Supreme Court declared that autonomous abortion rights are built into the Constitution, and that any legal barriers which prevent mothers from aborting their children are unconstitutional. This ruling was arrived at on the premise that the 9th and 14th Amendments, according to legal precedent established during the 1960's, guarantees a woman's "right to privacy", a right that extends even to abortion.

Abort73.com continues to explain on its States Abortion Laws page that until 1973, abortion was a states issue and that most abortions were illegal.  However, instead of admitting defeat and states wringing their hands over this infamous court decision, a website called Ignore Roe presents a strategy based on the doctrine of interposition for ending the holocaust of the preborn and explains on its “How Would It Work” page that:

Interposition works both ways.  Either the State interposes between the Federal government and its citizens, or the Federal government interposes between the State and its citizens.  Either the State says "No, we will not allow the murder of innocent unborn children" and begins to prosecute, or the Federal government does.

And continues to give these practical examples of how interposition would work:

The President of the United States could enforce the Constitution and begin prosecuting all who are conspiring to murder the unborn babies.

"This is what their oath of office demands. The president takes an oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution,” not Supreme Court opinions. Further, Article II, Section 3 states that the president is duty-bound to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Any court opinion that is contrary to the Constitution is, by definition, not law. Therefore, the president must not enforce it."

The Governor of a state could do the same thing. He could just start prosecution.  The law enforcement officials of his state are under his direction.  He needs only to call upon them to begin.

The Illinois Department of Public Health reports that in 2010 41,859 pregnancies were terminated in our state.  If we truly believe that life begins at conception, then isn’t it time for the citizens of Illinois to demand that their elected officials practice the doctrine of interposition and bring the holocaust of the Preborn in Illinois to an end? Or will we allow another 40,000+ lives to be destroyed in our state while we plan pro-life marches for the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade?
