The writer argues that Lincoln released the paper as an interventional measure to try and ensure that slavery was stopped without changing the inalienable rights of all U.S. citizens provided by the Constitution.

On the other hand, it may be the Declaration of Independence that promoted the idea of separate rights for separate races and genders that still afflicts equality in America. The debate continues....
