Biden Declares All 'Endowed by Their Creator' With Right to Life -- And Abortion Must Be Legal

President Joe Biden seemed a little confused when he gave a speech at a church in South Carolina on Sunday.

First, he mistook the Declaration of Independence for the Constitution.

"The Bible teaches that we shall know the truth, and the truth shall set us free," Biden said, according to a White House transcript of his remarks. "Well, I think we do know the truth. We do know the truth. We do know what the choice is here. It's pretty stark. And it's about dignity, respect; it's about whether we believe --"

"We're the most unique nation in the world," Biden said. "Now, everybody says those kinds of things about their country, but every other country is organized based on ethnicity, based on geography, based on religion. But we're the only nation in the world based on an idea -- literally, an idea -- an idea contained in our Constitution that says, 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights' -- life, liberty, etc."

"We've never fully lived up to it, but we've never walked away from it," said Biden. "Every generation, we get closer; until now, it's at stake. It literally is at stake."

It is, of course, the Declaration of Independence -- not the Constitution -- that says "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."


This was not the first time Biden made this mistake. Back on June 29, 2023, he did an interview with Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC. As reported by multiple news sites and memorialized on video, Biden said then: "The Constitution says: We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men and women are created equal, endowed by their Creator."

Biden was correct, however, in declaring that the principle that everyone has a God-given right to life is at stake in America today.

And Biden is one of the politicians putting it at stake.

On the night before he spoke in the South Carolina church, Biden spoke at a dinner in South Carolina, where he vowed to veto a federal ban on abortion and sign a bill to legalize it nationwide.
