Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says has been given to all human beings by the Creator, and for which governments are created to protect. Without all three ingredients the phrase comes up short. The law declares a person is dead upon their last heartbeat. A baby’s heart starts to beat five weeks after conception. Shouldn’t the opposite be true?
“LIFE” begins upon conception and without LIFE, the Pursuit of Happiness and Liberty doesn’t stand a chance.
