As the Declaration of Independence wisely stated, all men are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." The heart of liberty is that everyone has a right to live their own life providing they do not harm others. As defenders of liberty, we believe this means that civil government should justly punish those that do harm to others. We believe unborn children are included among those deserving of life and liberty. The government sanctioned taking of another's life is antithetical to true liberty. Since the Roe v. Wade decision and subsequent state actions, abortion has been one of the largest affronts to the unalienable Rights our fathers wrote of and died for.
We favor civil discussions regarding the variety of strategies in how to end abortion. In keeping with our general opposition to government involvement in healthcare decisions, we oppose any allocation of government funds or resources to abortion providers. We strongly support each state's right to resolve these issues through the proper judicial and legislative channels specified in their Constitutions and call on state leaders to defy and resist federal overreaches whether judicial or legislative.
