TO THE U. S. CONSTITUTION
SECTION 1: As used in this Constitution, the word person shall mean and refer to any and every living human being from the beginning of its existence as a human organism until death.
SECTION 2: Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Constitutional Amendment for Life
The Life Amendment extends the meaning of the word person, as used in the 5th & 14th Amendments, to include all living human beings. The Constitution of the United States of America is the primary legal document of the nation. As such, it sets forth all the functions of the American government. Also included are instructions for revising the Constitution by means of amendments.
Each amendment must be passed by two-thirds of both Houses of Congress, and ratified by three-quarters of the States. Since the Constitution was enacted, there have been twenty-seven amendments. Now greatly needed is a Constitutional Amendment for Life, protecting human life from conception to death. The word person is the key to this amendment.
