WASHINGTON – Four U.S. Cardinals, testifying before Sen. Birch Bayh’s Subcommittee on Constitutional Amendments, rejected the language of section two of Sen. James Buckley’s proposed Human Life Amendment, in open hearings on March 7th.
The section in question reads as follows: “This article shall not apply in an emergency when a reasonable medical certainty exists that continuation of the pregnancy will cause the death of the mother.”
