Topic of Keynote SpeechLincoln: On Behalf of Life

In 1849, following his first and only term in Congress, Lincoln retired from politics and returned to the practice of law. He then successfully practiced law for five years.

What prompted him to return to public life? Federal legislation that permitted the expansion of slavery by popular sovereignty (i.e., democracy, majority vote).

This presentation imagines Lincoln returning in 2024, prompted once again by popular sovereignty, this time concerning the fate of preborn human beings.

· How might Lincoln address the prevailing issue of our time?

· How might he respond to cases and controversies bearing on this issue?

· What would he say about the role of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration?

This presentation weaves stories of hope and suggests a way forward. In the end is our beginning. Endowed by our Creator. Upholding inalienable rights. And recommitting to our Constitutional way of government to secure the Blessings of Liberty for ourselves and our Posterity.
