Vice President Kamala Harris delivered a speech to commemorate the 50th anniversary of ‘Roe v Wade’ in Tallahassee, Florida on Sunday.
During the speech, Harris began to quote the Declaration of Independence. She described the rights of Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Leaving out the crucial first part, Life.
See a clip of that moment below.

Being that this speech was being given to an extremely pro-abortion crowd, it is easy to see why Harris’ speechwriters nixed the right to ‘Life’ from the speech.
The words written in the Declaration of Independence are very specific. Even above Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, our Founders believed and enshrined the right to life as our first principle.
Harris also failed to state that our rights come from our creator, another key component of the Declaration of Independence.
The direct quote from the Declaration is…
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.https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript
It is imperative to combat these misrepresentations of history. Not just as a news outlet, but on an individual basis.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
