This issue is important to us in the party. Here is what is written in our platform:
“…secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity…” - US Constitution Preamble
“We declare, that all people are created equal; that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness;…” - Constitution of the State of Indiana, Article I, Section 1
Based on the scientific knowledge that the genetic code of the pre-born person is clearly distinguishable from that of either of its parents, we recognize that the pre-born are persons entitled to the protection of law. That being the case, we call upon our state officials to fulfill their obligations to uphold the US Constitution and the state constitution by taking immediate action to end the practice of abortion in Indiana. We further call upon our state legislators to amend the Indiana Constitution to recognize personhood from the moment of conception until natural death. We condemn the practice of so-called “assisted suicide” and call upon our state legislators to resist any and all attempts to legalize euthanasia and suicide.
