These communities, by their representatives in old  Independence Hall, said to the whole world of men: “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.” This was their majestic  interpretation of the economy of the Universe. This was their  lofty, and wise, and noble understanding of the justice of  the Creator to His creatures. [Applause.] Yes, gentlemen, to  all His creatures, to the whole great family of man. In their  enlightened belief, nothing stamped with the Divine image and  likeness was sent into the world to be trodden on, and degraded,  and imbruted by its fellows. They grasped not only the whole  race of man then living, but they reached forward and seized  upon the farthest posterity. They erected a beacon to guide  their children and their children’s children, and the countless  myriads who should inhabit the earth in other ages. Wise  statesmen as they were, they knew the tendency of prosperity  to breed tyrants, and so they established these great  self-evident truths, that when in the distant future some man,  some faction, some interest, should set up the doctrine that  none but rich men, or none but white men, were entitled to life,  liberty and the pursuit of happiness, their posterity might look  up again to the Declaration of Independence and take courage to  renew the battle which their fathers began — so that truth,  and justice, and mercy, and all the humane and Christian virtues  might not be extinguished from the land; so that no man would  hereafter dare to limit and circumscribe the great principles  on which the temple of liberty was being built.

Abraham Lincoln, August 17, 1858

  1. Multimillionaires and the hall of justice.

    Senators, Congressman and Governor’s.
    Of these nobel men and women how many are millionaires twice or twenty or 100 times over?

    I am not choosing to battle a class war with my inquiry, but I can’t help but wonder how many might easily define what Life… Liberty….And the pursuit of Happiness for the rabble who pinch pennies and clip coupons. For over forty years we have witnessed what Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness means for over 59 million aborted fetus’.

    Honorable men and women have wealth and are impeccable with their duty to improve the world around them with their abundance. It’s the Pelosi’s, Clinton’s and other worldly politicians that spit on the Great Declaration of Independence by promoting the sinful activity of demanding monies from taxpayers to fund Worse than Murder Inc.

    If Trump helps to defund this oppressive operation and paves the way for Pro-Life Supreme Court Justices, then my vote for him was one of the best votes I’ve casted in thirty years.

    Liberty and Justice for All…Born and unborn.

  2. Worse Than Murder, Inc.would be considerably restrained, not only by cutting them off from the federal teat, but also by a concerted effort by us opponents to boycott their corporate sponsors. I believe these companies value profits over their perceived benevolence, and would cease funding PP if it affected their bottom line. Stop staying at Hilton’s and Marriots, using American Express, or shopping at Walgreen. And let their CEOs know why.

  3. Edie Eason.

    Your correct.
    If enough of us boycotted them.
    A great venue to kick your idea off would be the March for Life. If all who attended would work hard at getting your idea out we could tighten the noose on PP.
    Corporate will listen to a decline in revenue!

  4. The Great Communicator, Abraham Lincoln, said it most graciously: “They grasped not only the whole race of man then living, but they reached forward and seized upon the farthest posterity. They erected a beacon to guide their children and their children’s children, and the countless myriads who should inhabit the earth in other ages”.
    Our Founding Fathers included in The Preamble to our Constitution, as one of the principles, “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our (Constitutional) Posterity…” Our “Posterity” are all future generations; future generations who are being aborted indiscriminately and unconstitutionally and slaughtered in the womb without being acknowledged and protected as wards of the Court.
    According to Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, the human being is self-determined. In his exercise of free will, the innate attribute of his rational, immortal, human soul, the human being chooses his pursuit of Happiness. The human being’s innate human rights become his civil rights. The sovereign person acknowledges his existence by saying: “I AM”.
    The animal pursues his life through instinct, unable to determine his destiny. The animal cannot reason.
    Father Robert Spitzer says that the animal cannot answer the question “who”, “what”, “when” and/or “where”. The animal cannot distinguish right from wrong, nor break any of the Ten Commandments, nor imagine or create music, nor can the animal express the concepts that the animal cannot entertain. The animal cannot contemplate his existence, its life and its death and address itself as “I AM”. The animal does not have a last will and testament.
    If anyone wishes to place humans and animals in the same category, they are free to expose themselves to such nonsense. They are not free to impose such tyranny on other sovereign persons, who in their sovereignty, institute the sovereign state.
