I recently assisted in putting together a conference for hundreds of pastors, who received new courage in preaching the Word of Life. My friend David Barton of Wallbuilders gave a message in which he pointed out that public officials who don’t recognize the first inalienable right, life itself, will not be likely to recognize other inalienable rights we have. He showed specific voting records, and how those who get it right on life will also get it right on economic issues. He summed it up by saying, “If they can take your life, they’ll take your money, too.”
The founding fathers did write about abortion, and did declare that the right to life is the first right that government must recognize and protect. Those who fail to do so fail to govern.
