Letter: The right to life

Published 10:00 pm Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Our American Declaration of Independence states that, “We hold these truths to be self-evident … that we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life…” Americans have gone to great lengths to protect their right to life.

There is a teaching that instructs its followers to war against, kill and terrorize those who do not believe in their god.

It is not an infringement of religious freedom nor unfairness when representatives of our constitutional republic take action to protect Americans from those who would take our right to life. They are simply doing their duty to defend our God-given unalienable right to life and what Americans should see as a self-evident truth.
