Roe v. Wade Viability Standards Are Unscientific, Brief Argues

Jun 3, 2014

Abortion viability standards should be revisited in light of modern advancements in medicine and understanding of children in the womb, Liberty Counsel told the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in an amicus brief filed today.  In Edwards v. Beck, the district court concluded that parts of the Arkansas Human Heartbeat Protection Act were unconstitutional, solely upon the “viability” standard articulated 40 years ago in Roe v. Wade. However, as medical advances have provided greater information about the developing child, the Supreme Court’s viability standards should be abandoned to come in line with science. 

Three generations of Americans have witnessed decisions by the United States Supreme Court which explicitly degrade fellow human beings to something less in law than persons in the whole sense.

Abortion is not only an act of murder against the preborn child, it also destroys the lives of the very women pro-abortion advocates claim to be protecting. The South Dakota Task Force Report on Abortion discovered that women whose first pregnancies ended in abortion were 65% more likely to score in the ‘high risk’ range for clinical depression, compared to women whose first pregnancy resulted in a live birth.

Please pray that the law passed by Arkansas to protect unborn children and women is fully upheld.
