Here is information about the Human Life Amendment (HLA). Some conservatives support the HLA, which would (in effect) make abortion illegal everywhere in the United States. Other conservatives—federalists—merely want to overrule Roe v. Wade, which would return abortion to the states. It is a grave mistake, rooted in ignorance, to think that there is only one conservative position on abortion. In case you’re wondering, I’m a federalist; but if I had to choose between our current abortion regime and a regime in which abortion is illegal everywhere, I’d choose the latter.
