“Thomas Jefferson Is a Liar”

Throughout the entire history of the United States of America, the American people, as a whole, have fought for equal rights. In fact, the opening of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, reads as follows: “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”. However, Thomas Jefferson is a liar. When it comes to abortion, men are not equal and they have no rights to life, liberty and/or the pursuit of happiness. Although life is supposed to be an unalienable right for all, a woman’s voice is the only one heard when determining if an unborn fetus lives or dies. Is it that two people lay down, roll around, and magically the woman gets pregnant? Or maybe a woman can have sex with herself and impregnate herself? Hmmm, if so, then a woman should have every right to make her own decision about her child’s life. However, longtime studies show that the only way a woman can become pregnant is when her egg is met by a male’s sperm, which sounds like two people are involved to me. Therefore, why is it that the woman has the only say in the unborn child’s destiny? And by determining the outcome of the fetus’ life, she then gains control of her partner’s life and liberty. If a woman chooses to have an abortion, she does not have to take into account how her partner may feel. In a study by Dr. Arthur Shostak, a Professor of Sociology at Drexel University, men whose partner engaged in an abortion reported that they themselves encountered a high level of anxiety and stress, which often brought thoughts and dreams about the fetus. Ninety-eight percent also said that if they could help it, they would never, ever find themselves in this situation again. So, men, what are we going to do about it? You are men, responsible men, labeled as lovers, boyfriends, and husbands, who are willing to take care of their responsibility in making their child, so why let the government and women steal your rights away as the father of the unborn and not having a say? On the flip side of things, imagine yourself going out with the guys one night to drink and have a good time. While sitting at the bar with your friends, a chick walks by and catches your eye. You ask her to sit down with you and the both of you spend the rest of your time at the bar talking and laughing it up. There is definitely physical attraction between you two so she goes back to your house. Once home, both of you get right to the point. Clothes are coming off and flying in every direction, and before you know it, she is on top of you. With all the excitement going on, you both forget to use some form of visible protection, but she tells you between kisses that everything will be okay cause she has been tested and is also on birth control. The next day she leaves after you both exchange numbers, but she doesn’t use your number again until some time later when she calls to tell you she has found out that she is pregnant and that she is keeping it. Therefore, even though

So as men. SO CHALLENGE IT! . and your happiness is questionable. Men. The quote is not “all men are created equal sometimes” or “all men are created equal depending on what the issue is. From one simple decision. you must fight and petition to be heard. so as men. your life is now changed forever. It has nothing to do with advancing one’s gender rights over the other. Sounds like all three of your unalienable rights are taken away. regardless of gender. “all men are created equal”. That is the bottom line. You must realize like the saying says. you both don’t have the right in determining that action’s consequence. that once again. your freedom is limited. you must do the same thing. Instead. women stood up for their rights and fought for equality on certain issues. No excuses or no special circumstances. Therefore. it is the attempt of making everything equal. “you made the bed. ands or buts about it. and should also have the right to be observed as an equal in determining the fetus’ future. period. you must challenge the government to live up to the word of our founding fathers. you are equally responsible in everything that led up to the fetus’ existence. only a woman is guaranteed to make. men should have a say because a fetus is a product that has genetic inheritance from that particular man in question. There should be no ifs.” but instead.both of you made a decision to engage in an action. now you lay in it” applies to both people. Now you must prepare to be financially responsible for a child you had no intention of making. You must realize that when the shoe was on the other foot.Whether the decision is to have an abortion or not.
