We Hold These Truths to be Self-Evident...

"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 from the consent of the governed...."

Self evident truths - unalienable rights - Are these mere words or do we as a people believe them?

Well, according to a recent poll taken on the 4th of July, people do believe in these truths.

So then what are we doing to act consistent with those beliefs?

There is one way that respects that first right - the right to life - and also serves to protect those who are being denied that right by an oppressive and dictatorial court with the conspiratorial support of legislators at the federal and state levels of government.

Get actively involved in the pro-life movement.

What does that mean?

First and foremost it means to pray every day for an end to legal abortion in this country.
It mans praying and then working for the election of men and women who will stand up on behalf of the unborn and recognize that abortion is a denial of basic human rights.

It means voting against pro-abortion and pro-choice candidates - no matter how they try to "soften" their image.

It means financially helping pro-life groups such as Arizona Right to Life.

It means inviting AZRTL to speak at your church group, civic organization or neighborhood gathering on the sanctity of life.

It means checking out our website for the latest in news.

It means living each day with a commitment to speaking up in defense of life.

It means reminding your minister, pastor, priest or rabbi to speak out in support of the right to life from the pulpit and remind your fellow congregants that they too must stand up for the "least of these" our unborn brothers and sisters and their mothers who are being pressured into killing these precious lives.

So this weekend as you join with your fellow Americans to thank God for the blessings of liberty, remember that the fruits of liberty are not won for all our brothers and sisters, that the unborn have been robbed of their rights by a egoistical court, that these are those in this country who would not share the blessings of liberty with their fellow human beings, and that we must continue to declare our independence from this tyranny that would deny the right to life to all our children born and unborn.

No believer in either the self-evident right of babies not to be legally exterminated before birth, OR of constititional government (whereby laws are considered and passed by the legislature, not imposed via judicial fiat) could possibly disagree with your properly scathing criticism of the "tyrannical" Supreme Court. And certainly, the Declaration's recognition of the primacy of citizen's right to life should have been applied to all judicial decisions regarding legal abortion-on-demand (though the only instances I have ever found of this were in a couple of pre-ROE dissents). However at this point, as a practical matter, even Scalia is on record as declaring that, while he would overturn ROE/DOE/CASEY for their constitutionally baseless reasoning, this would not "restore" pre-birth children's right-to-life, since the founders only intended "walking-around people" to fall under the constitution (from his "60 Minutes" interview). Ironically, Blackmun used this claim in ROE itself to reject the applicability of the 14th Amendment to the state's right to protect pre-birth children's very lives.

So, no one on either side of the issue (the pro-aborts often deliberately mischaracterize this as a scare technique) should have any illusions about the effect of eventually overturning the SCOTUS's abortion regime....
