Volume 1, Part 7

Asserting common belief in the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God, the Declaration of Independence then states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." The Constitution was to secure these rights by establishing a government that reflected the consent of the governed. These two documents define Americans as a people and a nation.

The "Right to Life" is listed first and foremost because without it all other rights are severely diminished or rendered meaningless! The words "creation" and "conception" denote the event by which God gives new life. Science shows that human life begins at conception! The fertilized human egg is a unique human per its DNA - the genetic instructions guiding its development and functioning! Science attributes names to the operating "life principle" – one of those names, in Psychology, is "soul."

Today, the greatest threat to human life is abortion - via medical or other means! An "abortifacient" is a substance that induces abortion. The means may be pharmaceutical (the pill), herbal, or mechanical (the IUD). Abortion, by whatever means, is murder of the innocent and defenseless. A Catholic who knowing and willingly is directly involved in an abortion automatically excommunicates his- or herself from the Body of Christ! Such a one is mortally wounded and in dire need of the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. The Church stands ready to receive all who repent and return. And, the Church actively defends the Right to Life!
