ABSTRACT
The article supports the legal and constitutional approach to abortion which was articulated by Stephen Galebach, a graduate of Yale and the Harvard Law School. Galebach said that all U.S. Congress has to do is pass a law defining life. No one questions that human life is protected under the constitution. The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment states that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. Much thought has been given on whether life exists from the point of conception or at some point between conception and birth.
