The Unalienable Right to Life

by John D. Guandolo

The unprecedented leak of a draft Supreme Court ruling overriding Roe v Wade gives us a moment to reflect on the unalienable right to life and how this is a national security issue for America.

At the time of the founding of America, the primary law book used by the Founding Fathers was Blackstone’s Commentaries which, regarding the right to life, stated:

“Life is an immediate gift of God, a right inherent by nature in every individual; and it begins in contemplation of law as soon as an infant is able to stir in the mother’s womb.”

As a matter of fact, when the Fourteenth Amendment was adopted, 75% of the States made abortion a crime at all stages of pregnancy.

The bedrock of the American law and government is stated clearly in the “ideal” – the Declaration of Independence – for who we as a people strive to be.

“…and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Law of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them.”

Since the Declaration of Independence is a legal document dissolving the legal bonds between the British Crown and the American Colonies, we look to the law used by the Founders to determine what the phrases “the Law of Nature” and “Nature’s God” legally mean.

“The Law of Nature” is legally defined as the will of God as he reveals himself in creation, and “The Law of Nature’s God” is legally defined as “Holy Scripture.”

The law goes on to say that no law can be legislated which contradicts the will of God revealed in creation nor Holy Scripture. It is this way because this is the moral standard for our Constitutional Republic.

The Republic cannot survive without this moral standard in place.

What is fascinating is that in every UTT program, a 75-90 minute session entitled “America’s Foundation in Law & Government” is included, and often blows people out of their seats because they have little understanding of America’s founding principles.

Police officers and federal agents are usually most shocked because they realize the implications for their Oath of Office.

The right to life is an unalienable right which comes from God. The primary duty of the federal government is to defend the unalienable rights of each citizen.

Joe Biden calls abortion a “right” yet no such right has ever existed in the West, the United States, nor in our Constitution to kill another innocent human being.

Since Roe v Wade was adjudicated in 1973, it is estimated that over 60 million children have been killed in the United States through abortions. From 1980 through 1993, over 1.5 million babies were killed each year.

Putting the horrific moral evil of this aside for a moment, that is 60 million citizens who would have been productive workers and earners in our society to advance America’s economy, serve in our military, hold elected office, and raise families of their own.

How can the genocide of 60 million Americans not be considered a major national security issue?
