Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown on Abortion





 
To my fellow Ohio community,
The following is Senator Sherrod Brown's words in response to m request for him to Support the Senate bill that would protect life and has the potential to reverse Roe vs. Wade...educate yourself and know who you are voting for and what they stand for...

Dear Mr. Xxxxxx:

Thank you for expressing your views on S.91, the Life at Conception Act.

S.91 would implement equal protection under the 14th amendment of the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person. This legislation would effectively criminalize abortion.

While I believe abortion procedures should be rare, they should be safe and legal. A woman's decision to terminate a pregnancy is never an easy one, but it should be a private decision between the woman and her doctor, protected by the constitutional right to privacy.

Although the rate of teenage pregnancy in the United States has been declining, it remains the second-highest in the developed world. Approximately 72 per 1,000 women aged 15-19 -- nearly one million American teenagers -- become pregnant each year. The majority of these pregnancies -- 82 percent -- are unintended. Family planning experts believe criminalizing abortion will not deter teenagers from having sex. The only way to reduce the number of abortions is to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, and the most effective way to accomplish this goal is through access to information about human sexuality and reproductive health care services.

There is a misconception that being pro-choice means you are an "abortion advocate." Nothing could be further from the truth. Abortion is not desirable, but it must remain a choice.

Should this bill be brought before the Senate for a vote, I keep your views in mind.

Sincerely,

Sherrod Brown
United States Senator

  Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV): "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you..."

Thanks for posting this, Papa Bear. I could not agree more that 1) we need to know, understand the positions of those we vote for to represent us and lead us as a nation. 2) We need to be active in the political process by at least expresing our views to them.

Shalom, Art

  Well I don't know him but I am guessing he is a democrat... .enough said. People who murder will pay for it and those who go along with it will pay too.
