Grimm for Govermor panelThat’s what Chad Grimm told Chicago Magazine reporter Carol Felsenthal. You can find the article here.

The specific language in the article follows:

“I’m the only one of the candidates for governor who is pro-life.

“If a pregnant woman is killed it’s considered a double homicide. [He would make exceptions for the health of the mother, leaving that to the doctor and the patient; he notes on his Facebook page, “I consider the murder of an unborn child as the worst kind of harm committed on the most innocent among us!”]

  1. That’s right the constitution is neither pro lchoice or pro life

  2. To suggest the Constitution is neither pro-choice or pro-life is absurd!

    The Constitution is irrefutably 100% PRO-LIFE!

    The very foundation of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution which frames it, is the premise that ALL men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights including; LIFE, liberty and property/pursuit of happiness!

    Now if you want to open discussion on “when life actually begins”, we can discuss that.

    However, if we can agree that life begins at conception, then the discussion is OVER!

    LIFE is the most obvious of all inalienable rights!

  3. I just hope voters know abortion isn’t a function of the states anymore so whether it’s Grimm, Quinn, or Rauner, it really shouldn’t come up to begin with because the Governor can’t exercise any authority with regard to abortion.

    It’s not so clear that the Constitution was pro-life.

    The “life, liberty, pursuit of happiness” quote comes from the DOI, not the Constitution.

    Not only that, those rights may not have been meant to extend to fetuses.

    They didn’t extend to blacks or women so why assume they included fetuses?

    Also, prior to Roe V Wade, abortion was a state issue since the Constitution doesn’t mention it.

    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” -Tenth Amendment, US Constitution.
