Sometimes an idea is too good to be true. Wisconsin Right to Life knows a Personhood Amendment is one of those ideas. Our state is already in the best position possible to protect unborn children by keeping, and not negatively impacting, our lifesaving abortion ban (s. 940.04) which is already on the books in Wisconsin.
We are all weary of the long struggle to end abortion and want a solution. However, there are very important reasons why a personhood strategy is risky and unnecessary for Wisconsin.
- Wisconsin has an abortion ban in the statutes (s. 940.04) which prohibits abortion. This law cannot be enforced because of the Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion.
- Once Roe v. Wade is reversed, Wisconsin will be one of the first states in the nation to protect the unborn and shut down its abortion clinics because the abortion ban is already in place.
- A Personhood Amendment to the Wisconsin Constitution creates a serious risk of making the Wisconsin abortion ban (s. 940.04) invalid.
- A Personhood Amendment will not stop a single abortion because it is a philosophical statement which does not prohibit abortion and penalize those who perform them.
- A Personhood Amendment will not overturn Roe v. Wade. Granting personhood of the unborn child has been proposed to the U.S. Supreme Court in over 25 cases and the Court has not accepted this argument.
