Abigail Ruth, the girl two doctors wanted to abort
“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.”
(Declaration of Independence)
In 1963, the U.S government passed a law prohibiting the exercise of the freedom to pray in the public school system.
In 1973, a short ten years later, the U.S. government, based on a decision made by the supreme court, gave sanction to the practice of the saline abortion of infants in the womb, violating the God given “right to life” of innocent babies in their mother’s wombs.
In light of the fact that the Declaration of Independence places the right to life as being independent of the government, but given by the Creator, and that the Constitution guaranteed that the legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise there of”, it would appear that both rulings place the government at variance with both the people who originally formed it and the very reasons and principals on which it was founded.
By banning the freedom of prayer and at same time allowing only a scientific origins teaching that supported atheism, the government pretty much outlawed Christianity from the classroom and thereby sanctioned the religion of Atheism by default. In this manner they again violated the first amendment, the establishment clause.
In reaction to the laws banning Christianity from the classrooms, people have recourse to forming their own schools, outside of the sanctions of the Federal government and its reach. In this way they can recover some freedom of control over how and what our own children are taught, from an encroaching government.
But to restore the right to life of infants in their mothers wombs will be a much more difficult task. The very least we can do is to make up our minds that we will neither vote for or support candidates for office who in any way support the practice of abortion.
What party you want to vote for is not the question, but what the candidates stand for clearly is.
The question isn’t only one of how many more babies we allow to be “terminated” in the mothers womb, no matter how brutal that reality is, but also how long we allow this government to operate outside their constitutional and God given limits.They have crossed the fence. If we continue to hesitate, they will not stop there. Governments never do.
Vote those that perpetuate this outrage out of office, no matter how cute, popular, politically correct and glamorous they be. Do not tolerate the violation of God given and ordained rights. You have the power of the vote. Don’t hesistate to use it in defense of our liberties and life itself.
