When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable 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 from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
All men are created equal. We have the right to LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. If a government should infringe upon those rights, we have the RIGHT to alter or abolish such a government.
Wow, those are some powerful words. As citizens of the United States of America, we have a right to all those? Especially a right to life? And if a government should infringe upon those rights, we can alter it or abolish it? We the people have some power. Why don’t we use it?
Sure every four years there is something called an election where we get to pick out a new guy to “run” the country or we can decided to stick with the guy who is “running” the country already, provided this would only be his second term. However, in America some 75% of the population sits at home on election day. I am sure they have their reasons, but that only leaves 25% to decide for the rest of the country what we are going to do next.
Sadly of the people who do vote, a great majority put their pocketbook before their brain. We live in a country where any woman can go in to a “clinic” up to 40 weeks of pregnancy and abort their child. We live in a country where people think that the world is two colours, Red and Blue. To be honest, I have no idea who the “Red States” represent and who the “Blue States” represent. Let me tell you something folks, the world of politics isn’t black and white, red or blue, cut and dry.
No, this past Presidential Elections, we had a man running for office who proclaimed his Catholic Faith from Sea to shining Sea, yet is a supporter of a “womans right to choose” in all 9 months of pregnancy and supports so called Gay “Marriages”. Does that mean I am a supporter of our current “Leader”. No. For those who know me, this may come as a shock, but I think the man is a baffoon. He courts the so called “Religious Right” during an election year, passes some poo-poo legislation, signs some executive order then proclaims that he is “Pro-Life”. First of all, anyone who supports the death penelty cannot not pro-life. Hey bring it on, I will take this argument on any day of the week. No matter how evil no matter how awful the crime, one man cannot take the life of another man.
Our country has bought in to the lie. The lie that abortion is a simple easy procedure that can now even be done in the comfort of your own home. But wait there’s more. We also have bought the lie that those who are pro-life are women haters and have no desire to help the woman burdened by an unwanted pregnancy. We think that by using contraceptives, we will keep the teen age girls from getting pregnant, we will keep our marriages childfree, and we will prevent any more children from spoiling our already “perfect” mom/dad/son/daughter family.
Ah yes, since 1973 there have been over 42 MILLION, yes MILLION abortions procured in the USA. (Land of the Free, Home of the Brave) 42 MILLION. Praise God that I wasn’t one of them.
We the People of the United States of America can no longer afford to sit back and watch our future generations be aborted away. We need to fan the flames of the Pro-Life Revolution that has begun. How do we do that?
We start by recognizing that life is valuable from CONCEPTION to Natural Death. We need to recognize the sanctity of the marital act as being between one man and one woman for the procreation of human life. We must remove the contraceptive mentality from our daily lives by being open to all that God gives us.
We must realize that in our fallen world, we may think that “Gay Marriages” are good, but they aren’t. They do not support the Pro-Life Revolution. They are not open to life, they do not create life, they are contrary to the design of the world and they are not faithful to the union that God created for man and woman. We do live in a fallen world, many have same sex attractions, many but they are like a cross to bear and one must learn not to give in to the desires and to give those feelings to our Lord. It is not sinful to have the attraction, it is sinful to act on them.
We must realize that each and every person on this planet has a purpose. If the person is in a permanent coma, they still have a purpose. A crying infant at 3 in the morning has a purpose. Grandma with alzheimers has a purpose. YOU have a purpose. However, the purpose may not be known at this very moment.
