Transcript c. Page 2 BROADSIDE/HERIZONS December, 1980 HLA--THE "HUMAN LIFE AMENDMENT"--Put Women in their "Place" --by Jan Stevens The so-called Human Life Amendment as proposed by the National Right-to- Life Committee reads as follows: Section 1. With respect to the right to life, the word person as used in this article and in the Fifth and Fourteenth Articles of Amendment to the Constitution of the United States applies to all human beings irrespective of age, health, function or condition of dependency, including their unborn offspring at every stage of their biological development. Section 2. No unborn person shall be deprived of life by any person; provided, however, that nothing in this article shall prohibit a law permitting only those medical procedures required to prevent the death of the mother. Section 3. The Congress and the several states shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. Comments: 1, The hard-core anti-choicers, according to LIFE ADVOCATE, an anti-abortion anti-women's rights paper published in Houston, are opposed to the clause permitting abortions to save the life of the mother. They consider this a "loophole" and will fight, to have this clause removed or changed so abortions will be prohibited under any circumstances. 2, Because of the clause giving Constitutional rights to the unborn, "every stage of biological development," many forms of birth control, function by expelling an egg which may or may not be fertilized, will be outlawed, because no fertilized egg may be expelled. These forms * of birth control include the IUD and the Pill, which are used by the vast majority of women who use birth control. 3, How could such an amendment be enforced? Women could be ordered to live on reservations during pregnancy, or perhaps even during their entire child-bearing years. Because women do not have the protection of the U.S. Constitution themselves, such laws could be held constitutional. 4, During Hitler's reign in Germany, abortion was illegal, and many women who had miscarriages were asked to prove that the miscarriages were not abortions. Guilty until proven innocent, 5, Big government? Want to have government agents in bed with you? 6, Talk about the "master race" or population control—how does this strike you: Men are ordered to rape women—because NO abortions are allowed, the women MUST have the babies—the men are either only symbolically penalized, or perhaps they just "get away." YES, WE ARE IN DANGER. HOUSTON AREA NOW is declaring a state of emergency for Women's Rights. Please join our effort to keep abortion safe and legal. Contact the Reproductive Rights Task Force.
