The Constitutional Convention

Article V of the U.S. Constitution provides two ways to amend the Constitution: 1) by initiative of Congress and approval of both houses, followed by ratification of 3/4 of the state legislatures; and 2) by a call for a constitutional convention by 2/3 of the state legislatures. The amendment adopted by such a convention would then require ratification by 3/4 of the state legislatures.

After consideration of these two ways to amend the U.S. Constitution, RLM encourages all prolife people to work both for the Congressional passage of a Human Life Amendment and through the State Legislatures for passage of a constitutional convention resolution.
