The Declaration of independence
According to the criminal justice department, in 2011 around 321 people were sentenced to death penalty, this being only in the state of Texas. Which brings up the question: Is the declaration of independence being respected in the US? Well… Not really! Have you ever seen MTV’s show 16 and pregnant? Well in some of the teen cases they have an abortion; and there are actually places where this is legal and it is “ok” to do it. That being said; in this document you will find some arguments of why the declaration of independence is not being respected.
If you’ve ever read the declaration of independence, you probably noticed that in its second paragraph it clearly states that all men are created equal and that there are certain unalienable rights that governments should never violate. These rights include the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. So lets talk a little about the first unalienable right, the right to life. No government should have the power to take a person’s life, as stated in the DOI the right to live is the first of the unalienable rights.
So why is the government inducing lethal doses into thousands of people, or dropping bombs on Japan killing millions, or approving abortion. There is no possible way of making an end to a life “ok”. Death sentence should be abolished, since it is a clear violation to what The declaration of independence stands for…. As well as abortion and the use of chemical, or nuclear bombs.
Taking a life is not only unacceptable it is a clear violation to what the declaration of independence stands for. Abortion, death sentence and bombs should definitely be abolished and not be taken in count in any situation. Well… that being said the DOI is not being respected in the US and it is clearly being violated. It is a shame that the US actually has the death sentence and its definitely messed up that they don’t respect what the nation is basically based on!
