Our Posterity

This is about the born and unborn children of America…..our posterity.  The Founding Fathers of our country,  whose memory that so many current educators are trying to wipe away, were so very interested in their posterity……..the millions of yet unborn.  The Founding Fathers sacrificed their PROSPERITY for their POSTERITY.  Would you take the time to look at what they said about the yet unborn:  

After signing the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote to his wife:  “I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration. Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is more than worth all the means.” 

“And that POSTERITY will triumph in that days transaction, even although we should rue (regret) it, which I trust in God we shall not.”

George Washington wrote in his Orders, July 2, 1776:  “The fate of UNBORN MILLIONS will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. We have, therefore to resolve to conquer or die.” 

At the conclusion of the Revolution, General Washington wrote a Circular Letter Addressed to the Governors of all the States on Disbanding the Army, June 14, 1783, stating:  “According to the system of (government) the States shall adopt at this moment, they will stand or fall … It is yet to be decided, whether the Revolution must ultimately be considered as a blessing or a curse … not to the present age alone, for with our fate will the destiny of UNBORN MILLIONS be involved.”

Colonel William Prescott, who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill, wrote:  “Our forefathers passed the vast Atlantic, spent their blood and treasure, that they might enjoy their liberties, both civil and religious, and transmit them to their POSTERITY. Now if we should give them up, can OUR CHILDREN rise up and call us blessed?” 

“Therefore, we resolve, that it is an indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country, ourselves and POSTERITY to maintain, defend and preserve those civil and religious rights and liberties, for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down entire to FUTURE GENERATIONS.”

Dr. Joseph Warren, who died at the Battle of Bunker Hill, wrote the Suffolk Resolves, September 17, 1774:”Whereas Great Britain of old persecuted and exiled our fugitive parents from their native shores, now pursues us, their guiltless children, with unrelenting severity: “Therefore, we resolve, that it is an indispensable duty which we owe to God, our country, ourselves and POSTERITY .to maintain, defend and preserve those civil and religious rights and liberties, for which many of our fathers fought, bled and died, and to hand them down entire to FUTURE GENERATIONS.”

Daniel Webster stated in 1852:  “The world will cry out ‘shame’ upon us, if we show ourselves unworthy, to be the DESCENDANTS of those great and illustrious men, who fought for their liberty, and secured it to their POSTERITY, by the Constitution of the United States.”

Henry Clay addressed the U.S. Senate:   “The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for POSTERITY — unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual POSTERITY.”

Benjamin Franklin, who signed the Declaration of Independence, wrote of the Constitutional Convention (Federal Gazette, April 8, 1788:  “I have so much faith in the general government of the world by Providence, that I can hardly conceive a transaction of such momentous importance to the welfare of millions now existing, and to exist in the POSTERITY of a great nation, should be suffered to pass without being in some degree influenced, guided and governed by that omnipotent, omnipresent Beneficent Ruler, in whom all inferior spirits live & move and have their being.”

Charles Carroll, the longest-living signer of the Declaration, addressed the city of New York, August 2, 1826: “Grateful to Almighty God for the blessings which, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, He had conferred on my beloved country in her emancipation. I am now the last surviving signer, I do hereby recommend to the present and FUTURE GENERATIONS the principles of that important document as the best earthly inheritance their ancestors could bequeath to them, and pray that the civil and religious liberties they have secured to my country may be perpetuated to remotest POSTERITY and extended to the whole family of man.”

Theodore Roosevelt stated in his Inaugural Address, March 4, 1905:  “No people on earth have more cause to be thankful to the Giver of Good who has blessed us. Much has been given us, and much will rightfully be expected from us. If we fail, the cause of free self-government throughout the world will rock to its foundations, and therefore our responsibility is heavy, to ourselves and to the generations yet UNBORN.” 

“We have faith that we shall not prove false to the memories of the men of the mighty past. They did their work, they left us the splendid heritage we now enjoy.  We in our turn have an assured confidence that we shall be able to leave this heritage unwasted and enlarged to OUR CHILDREN and OUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN.”

Franklin Roosevelt stated at Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts, November 4, 1944:  “We shall be standing before a mighty bar of judgment — the judgment of all of those who have fought and died in this war — the judgment of generations yet UNBORN — the very judgment of God.”

President Ronald Reagan addressed the Alfred M. Landon Lecture Series on Public Issues, September 9, 1982:” I know now what I’m about to say will be very controversial, but I also believe that God’s greatest gift is human life and that we have a sacred duty to protect the innocent human life of an UNBORN CHILD.” 

Reagan wrote in “Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation” (The Human Life Review, 1983): “We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life — the UNBORN — without diminishing the value of all human life.”

In an address “A Charge to Keep,” delivered during his 2000 Presidential Campaign, George W. Bush stated: “I have a reverence for life, my faith teaches that life is a gift from our Creator. In a perfect world, life is given by God and only taken by God. I hope someday our society will respect life, the full spectrum of life from the UNBORN to the elderly. I hope someday UNBORN children will be protected by law and welcomed in life.”

President Trump declared in his State of the Union Address, February 5, 2019: “Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and UNBORN — are made in the holy image of God.”           

“America’s forefathers were willing to sacrifice their prosperity for their POSTERITY, pledging their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to give freedom and opportunity to generations yet UNBORN.”

The Preamble of the U.S. Constitution, 1787, states:
