Ryan Bomberger: ‘Humankind’s proclivity toward denying the humanity of others seems endless’
November 28, 2022
WASHINGTON — December is Universal Human Rights Month, a time for people in the United States and around the world to join together and stand up for the rights and dignity of all individuals. December 10 is Human Rights Day, marking the date in 1948 that the U.S. adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations, which states in Article 3:“Everyone deserves the right to life, liberty and security of person.”
It was 1959 when the UN adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and reaffirmed the same in 1989 in its Convention on the Rights of the Child. In those historic documents, the UN declares that “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth.”
Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), believes this human rights declaration should include the human rights of unborn children too. A passionate pro-life factivist, Bomberger fights for the rights of the born and unborn on all fronts.
Bomberger commented, “Shortly after the Supreme court struck down Roe v. Wade in June 2022, President Biden quickly formed the Task Force on Reproductive Healthcare Access summit. The commission was created to subvert state sovereignty by a once semi-pro-life Biden, and was an exercise in distortion and deception by the president and vice president.
“In his opening remarks at the October summit, Biden claimed ‘The Court got Roe right fifty years ago.’ However, forty-nine years ago, he strongly disagreed with the Court’s supremely wrong ruling. In a 1974 interview, Biden expressed: ‘I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion. I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.’”
Bomberger continued, “Humankind’s proclivity toward denying the humanity of others seems endless. Whether it’s discrimination based on pigmentation, gender, age (from the unborn to the elderly), or religion it seems we cannot grasp that we’re all one human race. Every human life deserves justice.
“Pro-life factivism is a continuum. Forget the favorite pro-abortion baseless mantra that we ‘don’t care about children once they’re born.’ We care about life no matter the age or stage. We may not agree with everyone on how that help is given, but all the evidence shows the extensive nature of how pro-life, pro-family, pro-restoration organizations and the Church care for the poor, the broken and those in need. History reminds us that when we fail to care for the least of these and deem them as ‘unwanted’ or a ‘burden’ (whether born or unborn), only violence and destruction follow.
“Nearly five decades of Roe have eliminated over 64 million beautiful possibilities. They’re gone. These are millions who could’ve shone their lights brightly but, instead, were violently extinguished.”
Bomberger concluded, “Protecting human life is rooted in compassion. And that’s carried out daily by millions of peaceful pro-life advocates, over 2,700 pregnancy help centers and 450 maternity homes that provide free care and support to millions facing unplanned pregnancies. As an adoptee and adoptive father, faith-based adoption agencies are a beautiful source of rescue and redemption. Abortion causes American society to turn its back on the most marginalized and accept the status quo. A remnant, though, refuses to be silenced or intimidated. We love the most marginalized and fight peacefully to abolish this evil so that ‘created equal’ applies to every member of the human family.”
The Radiance Foundation celebrates the third anniversary of its’ ground-breaking children’s book, Pro-Life Kids! which promotes the beauty of adoption. The book is designed to empower parents, teachers, faith leaders, and children to know and be able to discuss an age-appropriate pro-life worldview. Pro-Life Kids! is available at www.prolifekids.com.
