Last night, my husband and I went Christmas shopping for our boys and out to a movie, our first evening without Gunner and Bear in months. Which movie did we chose to see? Lincoln.
Not surprisingly, in the immediate aftermath of President Obama’s win over Mitt Romney last week, many Republicans bared their fangs at the social-conservative wing of the party, either subtly or not so subtly, blaming the loss on those who vote our values. Now, more than ever, our party needs to hold onto our pro-life, pro-human-rights values. In fact, the Republican Party should become more fiercely aligned to the pro-life position than ever.
It is more important than ever for pro-life students to engage in the political process and help shape the future of our nation. This is why Students for Life co-founded the I Vote Pro-Life First initiative. This initiative asks every American, particularly young Americans, to sign the pledge stating that a candidate’s stance on the Life issue will be the most important issue that a person looks at when deciding which candidates to vote for, from local school board to President of the United States.
Please join me and other pro-life leaders this Thursday, September 6th at 9:00pm EST for a national I Vote Pro-Life First webcast!
Students for Life of America team members made sure to greet Planned Parenthood’s Big Pink Bus Tour (http://www.ppav.org/ppavirginia/big_pink_bus_tour) when it stopped in Richmond, VA yesterday. We held a 10 foot banner that listed the names of women who have been killed by legal abortion in the U.S., including Tonya Reaves (www.operationrescue.org/archives/planned-parenthood-ignored-instructions-to-call-911-in-tonya-reaves-abortion-death/), the woman killed this year by a Planned Parenthood in Chicago.
