Life begins at conception, and the right to life is worth protecting and preserving through our nation’s laws.
The Declaration of Independence recognizes, as a self-evident truth, that the Creator has endowed mankind with unalienable rights, beginning with the right to life. In a declaration of matters for which this nation stands, life comes first. America’s laws and America’s greatness flow from this. Yet nearly 200 years later, the Supreme Court jettisoned this right as it bypassed the democratic process and declared abortion to be a “right” in Roe v. Wade.
Nearly 50 years since that fateful Supreme Court Decision, a majority of Americans are still pro-life. Yet, we are forced to watch our taxpayer dollars used by our government to subsidize abortion providers like Planned Parenthood to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. I will never stop fighting to see America return to our pro-life roots, end government funding of abortion, and see the scourge removed from our nation.
Also, I oppose any attempt to redefine marriage as something other than one man and one woman. Following the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage, we need federal legislation protecting religious liberty and conscience rights. It is wrong that businesses and charities are being shut down because they do not subscribe to an incorrect view of marriage.
Even more worrisome is a push to replace the traditional and biological understanding of gender with politically correct ideologies that threaten the equalities that women have fought hard to secure. Policies geared toward this woke understanding of “gender equality” create special carve outs that also threaten religious freedom protections.
We must stand up for the classical virtues that make civil society possible. Strong families, churches, civic organizations, and other voluntary associations are keys to a thriving society and a bulwark against ever-encroaching government. They must be supported.
