Why Sign the Declaration?
The Declaration of Dependence is an important document that seeks to unify Americans on a set of life principles which, if pursued successfully, will bring about an end to abortion in America. The principles of this document are derived from the foundations of the American republic, which began with the passionate statement in the Declaration of Independence that all human beings are created equal and endowed by our Creator with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
The Declaration of Dependence reaffirms these foundational principles and acknowledges that since all of our rights (including the right to life) come from our Creator (and not the government) we must declare our dependence upon our Creator as the ultimate source of such rights. By reaffirming our dependence upon God we reaffirm the unalienable rights (including the right to life) which he has granted to us.
The Declaration of Dependence does not advocate a specific political agenda to end abortion. It acknowledges that people will continue to disagree on political strategies to achieve the personhood of the unborn and end abortion. However, it does set forth unifying principles upon which all Americans who value the sanctity of human life can agree. In this capacity The Declaration of Dependence serves to unite Americans on common life principles that, if enacted, will achieve an abortion free America.
