Our Nation’s Founding
No public document gives more prominence to the idea of natural law, nor relies more crucially upon natural law as a premise, than the Declaration of Independence.
“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.”

Roe v Wade: Unnatural Law
Prior to Roe v. Wade, pre-born humans enjoyed the same protections under the law as everyone else. This attack on innocent human life is without precedent or justification.

In Our Lifetime
Throughout human history, the understanding of right and wrong, guided by conscience, has acknowledged a universal moral law. The Supreme Court of the United States is prone to error in its attempt to interpret and uphold this moral law.
