With respect to the Declaration of Independence, Keyes asserts that abortion is not only wrong, but incompatible with America's foundation. According to Keyes, the Declaration gives every human unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but that the Declaration gives no such power to humans to decide who is human and who is not human. Not only would Keyes seek to overturn the ruling of Roe v. Wade, he would put into place a human life amendment that would return America's view of life back to the intended view as stated in the Declaration of Independence.
