Today, many stand with you in this effort to “preserve the safety, health, peace, good order, comfort, convenience, morals and welfare of all inhabitants within the city of Quincy, and to ensure the federal prohibitions on the shipment of abortion pills and abortion-related paraphernalia are obeyed.” 

The negligence of the abortion industry has been tolerated for far too long at the expense of the innocent and vulnerable. If any change is going to be made, it must start with upholding the same standards, transparency and accountability expected of all medical practitioners. 

Quincy, if your city passes this ordinance, you will not be the first to recognize these federal statutes – nor is it likely that your city will be the last. Several federal judges have already opined with favorable statements towards these federal statutes, which many in the abortion industry consider “catastrophic” to abortion access in America. 

Citizens, the ordinance before you requires compliance with federal abortion laws which prohibit the mailing and the receiving of abortion-inducing drugs and abortion paraphernalia. These federal abortion laws, found in 18 U.S.C. §§ 1461–62, have never been repealed by Congress and currently exist as the Supreme Law of the United States of America. 

Equal justice mandates protection for humanity; one blood, one human race, from the womb to the tomb and beyond.

Please vote accordingly.
