A Tragic Anniversary: 35 years of Roe v. Wade

Today marks the tragic anniversary of Roe v Wade.

  • For 35 years we have denied the unborn human beings the right to life. The Declaration of Independence states,

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. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers form the consent of the governed.

What about the 14th Amendment, "nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws"?
