Equal Protection and America's Founding

America began 248 years ago as an idea, a set of principles.  By declaring certain truths to be self-evident, the Declaration of Independence affirms that we have inalienable rights because we bear the image of God. The Constitution exists to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”-the born and the preborn. From the moment we exist, through all stages of life, we merit equal protection.  That’s who America is, that’s fairness.  That’s justice, that’s America. 

As we approach this week’s second anniversary of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Supreme Court Decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, our focus is on equal protection for all, from the moment we exist through all stages in life:

Equal Protection applies at every stage of life


A Century and a half ago, we added the 14th Amendment to ensure that never again would we fail to provide equal protection for all.


Through the leadership of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Fredrick Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, Booker T. Washington, John Bingham, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mildred Jefferson, and many others, justice prevailed. That’s the 14th Amendment. That’s Equal Protection for All.


But what about equal protection for those who can’t speak for themselves? 

The littlest among us. The least among us.  They too are entitled to equal protection.  

That’s fairness. That’s justice. Standing with mother and child.
