Overstepping Its Authority

Pro-abortion politicians will often say to us, “The government should not be involved in such a personal decision as abortion.”

Our response? The government got “too involved” in abortion when it claimed to have the authority to deprive some human beings of their right to life. The Declaration of Independence asserts that government exists to secure the rights already bestowed by the Creator.

Some say it is none of the government’s business to prohibit abortion. Actually, it is none of the government’s business to permit abortion. As soon as a government does so, it transgresses its authority, denies the Declaration of Independence, and forsakes its primary duty, which is to protect the lives of its citizens.

Indeed, the government should get out of the business of abortion.
