In 1776, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “All men are CREATED equal…” He did not write, “All men are BORN equal.” He further wrote, that with that creation, we “are endowed by [our] Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” From the moment we are created, the government’s sole purpose is to secure these rights, including the right to Life.
For 41 years in the United States, our government has not fulfilled its obligation as 55 million innocents have had their lives forfeited with the blessing and consent of the very government that was founded to secure for those 55 million that very right.
The greatest civil rights struggle of our time is not gay marriage, but the right for millions without a voice to speak for themselves to simply live. After all, it is the first unalienable right upon which our nation was established.
