And the 4th branch of Vermont's gov't is ...

Planned Parenthood building 3There's no mystery about who's behind a campaign to make destruction of preborn life a part of Vermont's Constitution.

Because of concern that the U.S. Supreme Court might overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion for all 50 states, pro-abortion lawmakers in Vermont are pursuing a constitutional amendment to make abortion the law of the land. In doing so, says LifeSiteNews, they hope to insulate a state-level "right" to abortion from future elections.

Mary Hahn Beerworth, who heads Vermont Right to Life Committee, finds it ironic the U.S. was founded on the Declaration of Independence and the right to life.

Beerworth

"Vermont ... has legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy without a single restriction or regulation on the practice of abortion – not even that a doctor perform the procedure; no limit on how late into pregnancy; and ... legalized physician-assisted suicide. And now it wants to enshrine death into the Vermont Constitution," she laments.

It appears to the pro-life leader that one particular organization snaps its fingers and the legislature responds favorably.

"We refer to Planned Parenthood here as the fourth branch of government," she offers, "and every year they simply deliver their wish list. They have so many clinics per capita here that they dominate the political scene."

In order for the amendment to proceed, it would have to gain a majority vote in the House and two-thirds' vote in Senate this session and again next year for Vermonters to vote on it in 2022. It would go into effect the next year. Considering the political climate in Vermont, Beerworth doesn't deny there's a good chance it will succeed.
