These people do not actually support the idea of “choice,” but rather that of a particular outcome: abortion.
In the truest sense of the word, there is nothing more American than being pro-choice. This land was first settled by men seeking actual freedom of choice; this being religious freedom. As free will comes from God, men objected to the unlawful authority of their governments. If they were not free to choose for themselves the guiding principles of their lives, they were not free at all. The decision to settle this continent was inherently “pro-choice.” Nowhere is this more evident than in the founding of America’s states. For example, Maryland (which is considered by many as the birthplace of religious freedom in America) was established as a refuge for persecuted Catholics. Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts share similar histories.
The Founding Fathers understood this history and the sanctity of choice. While they believed in the need for a central government, they understood the urgency for Americans to govern themselves. Which is why the Tenth Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights. It is a simple and straight-forward amendment which reads as follows: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Their intent was to allow the people living in each state to decide for themselves issues that are not included in the Constitution such as marriage, religion, abortion, and countless others.
In recent years, the federal government has disregarded this principle of self-government and has continually limited the influence of the States and their inhabitants. As citizens of these united States, we have a duty to God and to our ancestors to restore sovereignty to what was once the most influential form of government in America: the State. Make the choice today.
