An Executive Order to Restore Constitutional Rights to All Human Beings
Since 1973, more than 60 million American children have been killed by the violence of abortion. The horror of approximately 2,000 daily killings stems from the United States Supreme Court’s constitutional errors in Roe v. Wade. The Court promulgated two fundamental errors in Roe. The Lincoln Proposal offers a bold vision to repair our constitutional order by turning the executive’s attention to the task of correcting Roe’s first and foundational error.
Americans need not accept an interminable status quo of indifference toward the rights of the child, due either to the timidity of our political elite or to the presumption of our judiciary class.
Presidents have questioned the Supreme Court’s abortion regime, but until Roe’s first and foundational error in its misreading of the Fourteenth Amendment is addressed directly, America’s abortion culture can never be fully uprooted. The Lincoln Proposal focuses presidential energy not merely on abortion’s regulation, but rather on the ultimate goal of abortion abolition.
The Lincoln Proposal represents the next step toward an American culture capable of overcoming the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence of violence and doubt, and moving bolding into an American future uplifting, empowering, and protecting every member of our common family.
