Speaking of our humanitarian efforts around the world during last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama said:
America must always stand on the side of human dignity and freedom.
Yes, Mr. President, America must stand for these things, they are the principles that our country was founded on. Unfortunately, for the last 37 years, we as a country have denied the dignity of the weakest and most vulnerable members of our own society and deprived them of their first and most basic human freedom – the right to Life.
Seems to me, if we’re going to promote human dignity and freedom throughout the world, we should begin by promoting it right here in our own country.
