$10,000 Offer to National RTL From American RTL to Name 'One' Pro-Life Justice
Date:5/22/2008

DENVER, May 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "American Right To Life is offering attorney James Bopp $10,000 for National RTL," said the group's president Brian Rohrbough, "if he can name a single justice on the current U.S. Supreme Court who has ever acknowledged that the unborn child has a right to life, whether in a majority opinion or a dissent."

"A quarter century after Bopp and NRTL refused President Ronald Reagan's offer to work toward federal personhood legislation, they have long opposed all state personhood efforts," says the group's site AmericanRTL.org.

On May 13, Colorado pro-lifers turned in 131,000 signatures exceeding by 55,000 the number needed to force a statewide vote to acknowledge in law the personhood of the unborn child.

"National Right to Life has misled the pro-life community to think that this is the wrong time to advocate personhood because we need one more Justice on the Supreme Court to have a pro-life majority," said Rohrbough. "But if we added a Justice who would uphold the right to life of the unborn, then we would have only one such Justice. The failed long-term strategy of regulating the killing of a fetus has left America without a single Justice who knows that it's wrong to kill an unborn baby; NRTL's compromise will never produce a pro-life court."

Even Dr. James Dobson, a supporter of the failed regulation strategy admits (http://www.citizenlink.org/focusaction/fofafeatures/A000006802.cfm) that: "Ending partial-birth abortion... does not save a single human life." And writing about this failed PBA ban, Notre Dame law professor emeritus Charles Rice said, "Every justice now on the court accepts the Roe holding that the unborn child is a non-person." For example, Clarence Thomas wrote in his Stenberg dissent that "a State may permit abortion," and Antonin Scalia wrote in Casey, "The states may, if they wish, permit abortion-on-demand," and said on April 9, 2008, "You want the right to abortion? Create it the way most rights are created in a democracy. Persuade your fellow citizens it's a good idea - and pass a law."

"American Right to Life will give $10,000 to National if their general counsel James Bopp can identify even a single U.S. Supreme Court Justice who has acknowledged in any ruling the personhood of the unborn," said Steve Curtis, ARTL's vice president and former chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. "To make their strategy appear successful, National Right To Life has misled the pro-life movement into believing that abortion accomplices like Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Thomas and Scalia are pro-life."

"Every Justice on the Supreme Court is a legal positivist, which is a courtroom moral relativist," Rohrbough said. "Like their Dred Scott counterpart that ruled a black man could be owned as property, the current Republican Supreme Court is wicked and will only learn about the right to life of the unborn from the advancing personhood wing of the pro-life movement."
