Will GOP National Convention Pro-Life Support Energize Conservative Voters
The country is now in the third quarter of a presidential election year that may very well determine the direction of the nation for the next quarter century in the battle to establish whether the right to life for the unborn will thrive or wither on the vine. It is clear that historic battle lines are now being drawn, and liberal advertising blitzes are being planned and will be unleashed against Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan next week. This will occur after the GOP National Convention delegates formerly adopt the pro-life plank along with the convention platform in Tampa, Florida.
This right to life platform stand is more than just a thrown-in addition to the party platform to be discarded after the convention nominates Mitt Romney as the Republican Party presidential nominee and Paul Ryan as the vice-presidential nominee. This is a clarion call to all supporters of life that the election is going to define leadership on life itself.
Liberals under President Obama will continue to fight to destroy life by defending a “mother’s” right to kill, to eliminate their child’s life. Sure, it may be couched in neatly convenient neutral terms like ”woman’s right to choose”, but murder by way of abortion, is not a choice, it is a legalized death sentence for the unborn, and a continuing moral scandal supported by liberals who would rather support the “soul” of a tree, rather than the soul of a unborn creation of God.
The real question, is how committed are conservatives to fight for the future of an unborn child, when the Hollywood firebombing machine is revving up as the GOP convention attendees begin to assemble in Tampa? Is this simply a convention platform plank to bring in conservatives? Or is the pro-life stance a rallying point, that has the full weight and credit of the U.S. Constitutional spirit that protects the personhood of each and every man, woman and child in this nation?
The Pro-life plank states in part,“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.”
The words are not difficult to understand. The sanctity of life is fundamental and it is complete! The Fourteenth Amendment protections must apply to an unborn child. Their right to life such should and must be protected. There is no reason for misinterpretation or equivocation.
This pro-life plank gives purpose and clarity of leadership to all convention delegates. Their vote and support, gives them an opportunity to distinguish themselves as warriors for protecting and preserving the right for a child. As they return to their hometowns they have to continue to fight to guarantee the unborn the same identical legal protections and privileges that anyone has in this great and wonderful nation.
The pro-life plank support is essentially a first step which can be likened to the Declaration of the Independence adoption by the Constitutional Convention in 1776. Once it was adopted, there was cause for celebration, but the real battle of independence still had to be fought and more importantly still had to be won. Words of support will not win this war for life, but planning or taking part in pro-life activities in your community will help strengthen a victory for constitutional life federal legislation.
Pro-life activities are occurring this month. For example, the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) organization has begun a 30- stop national tour to raise grassroots attention concerning the Obama administration’s extremist pro-abortion record. Obama’s pro-abortion actions include continuing to use tax dollars to support Planned Parenthood’s abortion-related activities and refusing to protect, “baby girls from the lethal discrimination of sex-selective abortion,” according to SBA.
This week, SBA and Ohio Right to Life have joined SBA in taking the tour to Toledo, Dayton and Lima, Ohio on Wednesday. The state tour continues on Thursday to Cincinnati, Columbus and Zanesville, Ohio. The other battleground states on the tour include, Iowa, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Florida.
As conservative voters it is time to draw a distinct and unmovable line in the sand, where losing freedom and sacrificing justice for the unborn is a future that will no longer be tolerated in America.
The obligation of the nation’s patriot’s is not to yield sovereignty to the Hollywood elite, liberal punditry or to a president whose only obligation it seems is to singlehandedly dismantle the U.S. Constitution’s personal and state’s rights.
Rather the citizen patriot should embrace their God given rights and insure that a nation built on moral biblical principles and constitutional rights, including the right to “life and liberty will not be abridged.
Founding Father and former President John Adams spoke on October 11, 1798, stating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
So stand with strengthening the constitutional cords of our nation and defend its religious heritage in order to protect the right to life of the unborn, now, tomorrow and until their U.S. constitutional protection is won. Now is that time!
