“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence
I find it fitting that I share this quote today on the 243rd birthday of the great nation under God.
As we look back on our nation’s history, we have seen how war, slavery, and today abortion has destroyed and divided our nation.
The first unalienable, life, remains true today. Unfortunately, 61 million Americans have had that right taken away from them because of people’s personal convenience in part of a political agenda.
Today we must remind ourselves, now more than ever, that life is a right. It can never be taken away from the unborn to the terminally ill and every walk of life in between. We must defend life or the other two rights God has given us will mean nothing to all Americans.
