PUB 700255: Abolish Abortions by Loyal Millett

ARTICLE I: DECLARATION OF RIGHTS, New Section.

Catchline: Abortions prohibited.

 

We, the People of the State of Florida, do hereby declare that we find the United States Supreme Court ruling of "Roe v. Wade" to be nothing more than legalized infanticide.

We do declare all forms and procedures of abortions to be savage, against all human decency, and no different than the Nazis' medical experimentations.

We do declare that we find it violates our rights and protections under the 14th Amendment that abortions are easily accessible, but treatments for infertility and child adoptions are subject to astronomical costs and severe regulations. Why is it affordable to kill a child, rather than save one?

We, as a federal State of the Union, using our sovereign rights, do declare to the United States that we shall no longer be bound to the judgments and demands of "Roe v. Wade" and all other subsequent judicial rulings.

We recognize that each and every woman whose pregnancy is the result from rape and/or incest, shall be treated with the utmost respect, decency, and care. But the unborn child shall not be killed for the crimes of its father. Provisions and procedures shall be established for each woman who does not wish to keep their child, to offer their child the chance to be adopted by a loving family.

(a) For the purposes of this section:

(1) "unborn human being" shall mean the offspring of human beings from the moment of conception until either live birth or death, including the human conceptus, zygote, morula, blastocyst, embryo and fetus, whether conceived and/or located inside or outside the body of a human female;

(2) "conception" means the fertilization of the ovum of a female individual by the sperm of a male individual; and

(3) "abortion" means the use or prescription of any instrument, medicine, drug, or any other substance or device to intentionally kill an unborn human being.

(b) It shall be unlawful for any person to perform, procure, or attempt to perform an abortion. Any person who performs or procures an abortion shall be guilty of murder of the first degree.

(c) Any person who kills an unborn human being against the mother's wishes shall be guilty of murder of the first degree.

(d) The termination of any pregnancy that is determined to be a medical threat to the life of the mother shall not be subject to the provisions of this section.

(e) Under such provisions as shall be established by law, elective birth control procedures--including, but not limited to: tubal ligation, hysterectomy, and vasectomy--shall be available to the People at reasonable costs.

(f) Nothing in this section shall impair or deny a person's right to use contraceptives and/or birth control devices--including, but not limited to: condoms, spermicide, diaphragms, vaginal rings, and/or oral contraceptive pills.

ARTICLE X: MISCELLANEOUS, Section 22. Parental notice of termination of a minor’s pregnancy.

SECTION 22. Parental notice of termination of a minor’s pregnancy.

The Legislature shall not limit or deny the privacy right guaranteed to a minor under the United States Constitution as interpreted by the United States Supreme Court. Notwithstanding a minor's right of privacy provided in Section 23 of Article I, the Legislature is authorized to require by general law for notification to a parent or guardian of a minor before the termination of the minor's pregnancy. The Legislature shall provide exceptions to such requirement for notification and shall create a process for judicial waiver of the notification.
