The following Resolution was passed by unanimous vote of the National Committee of the Constitution Party at its semi-annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas on February 27, 1998.
Whereas, the Preamble to the 1996 Platform of the U.S. Taxpayers Party states (in part) that members of the party "gratefully acknowledge the blessings of the Lord God as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of this Nation". Said Preamble states further that, "Our Republic is a nation governed by a Constitution, which is rooted in Biblical Law, administered by representatives who are constitutionally elected by the citizens", and, moreover, "In a Republic governed by constitutional law rooted in Biblical Law, all life, liberty, and property are protected because law rules,"and
Whereas, in the section titled, "Abortion", the 1996 Platform of the U.S. Taxpayers Party states, in part, that, "The pre-born child, whose life begins at conception, is a human being created in God’s image. The first duty of the law is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. It is, therefore the duty of all civil government to secure and to safeguard the lives of the pre-born." This duty is a fundamental requirement for all U.S. Taxpayers Party candidates;
Be it therefore Resolved, The U.S. Taxpayers Party National Committee shall not endorse or distribute, allocate, contribute to or solicit funds for, or support in any way whatsoever, any candidate who does not pledge and act to defend and promote the inviolable right to life of innocent human beings, from the moment of conception to natural death -- without exception.
