The U.S. Constitution requires that the Census Bureau must count the entire U.S. population every 10 years.
The next Census Day is April 1, 2020.
The census count serves as the foundation of the U.S electoral system, assuring that seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are apportioned among the several states according to their populations and every U.S. House and each state legislative district is redistricted as equally as possible, based on population, to assure one person, one vote.
The census will attempt to count virtually every living inhabitant in the United States on that date - every man, woman and child, of every race, age, and national heritage, including immigrants, both legal and illegal.
Slaves used to be counted as only 3/5 ths of a person, but that changed when slavery was banned by the Thirteenth Amendment and the 14th Amendment included former slaves as full persons in the census count..
And unborn children?
Sorry – they don’t count at all. That needs to be changed, too.
In a footnote in his Roe v. Wade abortion decision, Justice Blackmun wrote that, among other reasons, since the unborn had not been included in Census counts, they are not “persons.”
The first words of the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution reads, “We the People…” meaning all 300+ million of us Americans. Are unborn children “people,” too?
Famed geneticist Dr. Jerome Lejeune wrote of the one-celled human zygote, “He is a being, and being human, he is a human being.”
Every human being is a “person.”
The U.S. Constitution requires every “person” to be counted in the census. Thus, every unborn child should be counted.
In God’s eyes, every person, born and unborn, counts. Let’s make sure the government counts every unborn child as well!
