Individual Rights in Pennsylvania

Each and every citizen has certain inalienable and fundamental rights. The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania declares these rights and so states:

All men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness.”
The “pursuit of happiness” may be an arguably relative concept, but many people pursue happiness through the creation of family. Family is not an ambivalent concept.

Families today come in many different structures and forms. A family can be blended in various ways and often goes through several transformations.

In Pennsylvania and states nationwide, when it comes to families, what matters most is that each member of a family enjoys the support, love, nurturing and protection of all other members. Family members support each other. Families are the social glue that holds us all together, allowing us to function at our most productive levels.
