Rate this:
Following the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that effectively legalized abortion in the United States, many conservative politicians and church leaders worked to reverse the decision. In 1981, Senator Jesse Helms, a Republican from North Carolina, introduced the Human Life Bill, which would have defined conception as the beginning of human life. A series of Senate hearings followed the introduction of the bill. Dr. Carolyn Gerster, one of the founders of the National Right to Life Committee, an anti-abortion group, testified that she believed that abortion was a violation of the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence.
