14. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?
They understood that Mankind's nature is to be good & to be tempted by evil to sin. In the "Declaration of Independence," they attributed to "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" America's entitlement to a separate and equal station with England. Dr. H. Lawrence Zillmer, in his 2012 book "Living with Agenda 21: Surrendering Our Freedoms," explains that "The Ten Commandments are but a simplified and abbreviated version of Natural Law" and that "we must live in harmony with Natural Law or die."

16. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?
I believe that birth control stops with conception, and I believe that induced abortion mills such as those in Planned Parenthood facilities should be outlawed. But as a registered nurse in the emergency room of a major medical center in Mobile, Alabama, I frequently cared for women undergoing an abortion. I always assumed it to be spontaneous and that only God knew the reason why. Does the "right to life movement" want these women in distress to be subjected to lie detector tests with questions like "Did you fall down the stairs to lose your child?" I believe that the unborn are in God's jurisdiction and that it is atheistic to believe that the unborn can be protected by man alone from conception to birth.
