This book discusses the views of the founding fathers against abortion, including their views on the anti-abortion 'concealment' laws in their day. It also describes how the common law abortion rule was misinterpreted by the court in Roe v. Wade, since it was solely intended to be a rule of evidence by which an abortionist could be convicted. Most importantly, the book tells how the Ninth Amendment was intended to incorporate the founders' views of natural law as part of the Constitution. Natural law in their day, as expressed by such writers as Locke and Montesquieu, required protection of the unborn from the moment of conception.show more
