As we celebrate this month both our nation's 243rd birthday and Wyoming's 150 years of statehood, let us be reminded of what our Founding Fathers gave us: "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."

The Founding Fathers recognized that certain rights are God-given, not given by the government. So, they cannot be taken away by the government. Through the years, we have strayed from the ideals that were given to us by our Founding Fathers.

Without malice or anger, let us remember the more than 60 million human beings who have been denied life. These children had no birthday, were not able to experience liberty or pursue happiness. For those women who feel at a loss because of their pregnancy, let's commit ourselves to help them embrace motherhood.
