Right to Life

Everyone has the Natural Right to Life

It should go without saying that life is the most basic human right.  Every human being, from the moment they are conceived, possesses the natural right to live. 

In our Declaration of Independence, the founders eloquently stated that “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.

A person is unlikely to find happiness without liberty and certainly, no one can experience liberty without life.  It is to secure these rights that governments are instituted among men. 

Legitimate governments exist to protect every human life and to ensure that all of them are treated equally.  Funding the termination of human lives is a betrayal and perversion of government’s most basic duty to its citizens.
