"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." — The Declaration of Independence.
Life is an inexorable part of liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Without life, there is no need to fight for freedom.
For the countless unborn, robbed of the chance to even begin their lives outside of the womb, we stop to remember this on the Fourth of July. For the human lives discriminated against because of sex, medical diagnosis, inconvenience of timing, fear for the future, we bow our heads in mourning.
And for the numerous Americans who stand up proudly and fight for the right to life, we celebrate on this Independence Day.
— Jennifer Feeney, LaPorte
