Bloomington Herald-Times, January 5, 2010
To the editor:
America's founding fathers knew that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. They sought to ensure our ability to preserve and protect those liberties through secession from England.
Because the founders knew that our rights come from God, they wrote the Constitution not to grant rights, but to prevent government from infringing on the rights given to us by God. That is why the Bill of Rights is a list of things government may not do to us.
Later, the 14th Amendment required states to provide equal protection under the law to all persons, a requirement that has been ignored since 1973 as we have slaughtered 50 million unborn children.
On January 24 at 2:00 p.m. at the Monroe County Courthouse, the 2010 Rally for Life will protest the injustice of denying unborn children the basic human right to not be murdered. Please come to the Rally for Life to show support for human rights, liberty and the principle that we have no right to destroy human life created in the image of God.
Last year, the Herald-Times failed to cover the Rally for Life. I encourage the H-T to cover the rally this year.
