All men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Our nation was founded upon this statement, and in the years since its conception, countless men and women have given their lives to protect it. Yet at the same time, every day thousands of innocent children are murdered in abortion clinics around the country, in blatant disregard to this belief we claim to hold dear.

We live in a society that is striving for “equality” and “tolerance” for everyone, but somehow we left out unborn babies. When did we decide that unborn babies were not included in “all men”, and that they were not in fact, “created equal” like the rest of us? What happened to their “inalienable rights”, and why are they not given the chance for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”?

We champion many causes in America: ridding Africa of AIDS, freeing women from the opressiveness of Islam in the Middle East, and even trying to secure human rights for animals: how is it that we are forgetting the plight of human children whose rights are being ignored in our own country? When will America wake up and remember the premise upon which our great nation was founded upon, and once again recognize the rights of the innocent? I pray it is soon.
