This July 4, We Must Protect Everyone's Inalienable Rights

Unborn children will be spared from abortion tomorrow only because most abortion centers will be closed so that their employees can celebrate Independence Day. 

In the past few years, the abortion lobby has increasingly moved away from its rhetoric about “choice,” toward rhetoric about “reproductive rights” and “reproductive justice.”  Abortion-supporting writer Natasha Chart recently wrote an article titled Just Have the Baby?  A New Mom Reveals Why There is No ‘Just,’ and Not Necessarily Any Justice Either for the pro-abortion site RH Reality Check.  Chart lamented that we need abortion because pregnancy makes women fat, requires them to buy maternity clothes, and can make their feet swell. 

“There’s no ‘just’ about having a baby.  And not necessarily any justice, either,” Chart wrote. 

Since America’s founding, women have made significant progress—gaining suffrage, advancing to top positions in every career field, and holding elected office, for example.  But girls face the very real possibility of being aborted when they are young and most vulnerable, both in America and around the world. 

Despite the abortion industry’s allegations that it believes in justice and rights for all women, it’s not interested in stopping gendercide—the deliberate extermination of baby girls just because of their gender, a growing global problem

Last summer, Live Action released undercover videos showing the abortion industry’s complacency in providing sex-selective abortions to eliminate baby girls.  There’s nothing “just” about killing very young girls just because of their gender. 

As we celebrate Independence Day, let’s not forget that even though women are equal under American law, baby girls are being targeted just for being girls.  There isn’t any freedom or justice for victims of abortion. We must work to make America a place where everyone is guaranteed the inalienable right to life.
