Tell the GOP to be proud to be the party of life
They want to ban birth control, they are extreme, they even want to put women in jail who have miscarriages!
I am sure that you have heard the barrage of accusations against pro-life politicians who support personhood.
Liberal abortion interest groups and their allies in the media are attacking every candidate who has ever supported the idea that the right to life and personhood begin at conception.
Unfortunately, many candidates feel like they have to hide their pro-life credentials in order to get elected. By running away from their pro-life convictions they are actually playing into the hands of abortion advocates, making the pro-life position seem outside of the mainstream.
Imagine that, interest groups that defend the dismemberment and poisoning of human beings as a form of birth control accusing pro-lifers of being extreme!
And talking about extremes, did you know that the media has been giving positive coverage to the case in the state of New York that is seeking to have the personhood of chimps established in court? That's right, the media is willing to give friendly coverage for animal personhood, but not for human personhood.
It is time to stand up and be proud to be pro-life, not to apologize.
Did you know that the GOP platform supports the sanctity and the personhood of the unborn? The platform, in the section entitled Sanctity of Life states:
- Faithful to the "self-evident" truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to unborn children. GOP Platform
If a politician is not willing to stand up for his or her values while on the campaign trail, chances are they will never stand up for them in Washington DC.
Pro-lifers like us are tired of the same old promises. While the homosexual lobby has unapologetically advocated for "equality" and made it a socially acceptable position, pro-lifers are forced to disavow their pro-life convictions in order to get elected.
This has got to end.
Many pro-life politicians are buckling under the pressure from the "war on women" crowd. But some are not.
We must support them!
Please sign this petition and share it with others. Every signature will be sent to the leadership of the National Republican Senatorial Committee as well as to the candidates who stand up for their pro-life convictions.
For example, after weeks of incessant barrages from the media about her support of a federal personhood law, US Senate Candidate Joni Earnst (Republican - Iowa) did exactly the right thing and came back with an unambiguous defense of her pro-life convictions:
- "I will continue to stand by that. I am a pro-life candidate, and this has been shaped by my religious beliefs through the years."
