When "12 Years a Slave" recently garnered the Oscar for best picture, this truth sprang to mind: the pro-choice stance is the slaveholder's position.
You see, back then slaveholders took the view that black people were not developed enough to be treated as human beings, as persons with rights, and therefore were bought and sold like cattle. So stated the Virginia Supreme Court in 1858: "In the eyes of the law … the slave is not a person."
That differs in principle not at all from the pro-abortion advocates today who take the view that unborn babes in the womb are not developed enough to be treated as human beings, as persons with rights, and therefore may be killed at will for the convenience of others with power over life and death.
DEMAND CONGRESS AND OUR STATES PASS THE HUMAN LIFE AMENDMENT AND PERSONHOOD PROTECTIONS FOR OUR MOST INNOCENT
Abortion is anathema for myriad reasons, my friend, but especially here in this greatly blessed Constitutional Republic founded upon God-honoring principles, it bears a terrible, blood-soaked stain of betrayal:
The Declaration of Independence states plainly we are all created equal, endowed by our Creator with our unalienable human rights. So since the Declaration states our creed, there can be no right to abortion, which would mean denying the most fundamental God-given right of all.
But if human beings can re-define the Creator's gift, and decree who is human, who is a person and who is not, the doctrine of God-given rights is utterly corrupted. Abortion, therefore, must be seen as the unjust and immoral taking of a human life – a fatal breach of the bedrock principles of our public moral order.
What's more, the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution makes it clear that the ultimate aim of our government is to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity," which of course comprises by definition persons not yet born. Surely, it includes those littlest human beings in the womb.
Because of our Constitution's stated purpose, we recognize the Personhood of all unborn children and their protection by the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments.
