Preached at: Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
Date: January 19, 1992

Our Declaration of Independence declares, “…all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Dr. Francis Schaeffer said in one of his last messages that the right of life is more fundamental and basic than the right even of liberty or the pursuit of happiness, or any other right, for that matter. Indeed, if you are lying in your coffin, you do not care how many shackles and chains have been wrapped around you. Nor do you care how much money you have in your bank account. Without life, nothing else means anything. Tragically, this right to life is being denied to millions of unborn Americans through abortion
