During On the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade gave a speech to Kamala Harris in Tallahassee, in which she openly expressed support for the ruling recently overturned by the Supreme Court. In the middle of her speech, she preferred to quote the US Declaration of Independence. However, some pointed out after the quote ended that the vice president decided to leave out one word: life.

The Declaration of Independence was published on July 4, 1776, and the first draft was written by a then young lawyer named Thomas Jefferson. The finishing touches were made by Jefferson himself, who added John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston.

This document made history for the words it contained that guided America through history. “We hold these truths for granted, that all human beings are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” the authors wrote.

More than 200 years later, one would think that today’s leaders would keep that paragraph in mind. Well, maybe not so much. Although Kamala Harris managed to quote Jefferson’s words, she decided to tweak them a bit.

“We both believe and know that America is a promise… It’s a promise of liberty and liberty. Not just some, but for everyone. A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are all endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Be clear, these rights were not granted to us, they belong to us as Americans,” Harris said.

Ted Cruz responded to Kamala Harris

Remarkably, the words she left out were not random, but were previously chosen by either her or her team. “Somehow she forgot that all men are created equal,” Senator Ted Cruz said on an episode of his podcast.

According to the Texas senator, the words written in the Declaration of Independence were “perhaps the most glorious words ever written by man outside of the Bible. It was a bold vision for the future of mankind’s natural rights,” while the VP’s speech “embodies both the ignorance of the modern Democratic Party and utter contempt for our rights.”
