I am familiar with the concept of a “natural right” to SEEK happiness… but do we have a “natural right” to OBTAIN happiness? Let’s consult ARTICLE 2:
[Art.] 2. [Natural Rights.] All men have certain natural, essential, and inherent rights – among which are, the enjoying and defending life and liberty; acquiring, possessing, and protecting, property; and, in a word, of seeking and obtaining happiness. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by this state on account of race, creed, color, sex or national origin.
