The Human Life Amendment Belongs in the GOP Platform

By Marie Tasy, Executive Director New Jersey Right to Life

Republicans traditionally don’t win the women’s vote. Even pro-abortion Governor Christine Todd Whitman never won the women’s vote. The pro-life Republican party platform sets forth a goal to right a terrible wrong and it’s a worthy one, indeed. Did the abolitionists succeed in eradicating slavery overnight? No, but they perservered and eventually slavery was abolished in our land. Abortion is the human rights issue of our day. It is deeply disturbing that the Democrat party platform supports abortion on demand and states unequivocally that every American taxpayer should be forced to pay for it. This is truly the extreme position and one that is not supported by the majority of Americans. Every abortion is a tragedy and an act of violence that kills children and hurts women. That is why the pro-life movement offers financial and practical help to women in crisis pregnancies through pregnancy aid centers and maternity homes. We also offer help to the growing number of women who regret their abortion through many organizations and community outreach programs. To suggest that we should stop there is ill conceived and short sighted. Even legal scholars who support abortion admit the Supreme Court’s findings in Roe v. Wade are fatally flawed. The basis for the decision was based on a lie. Will abortion be eradicated in our lifetime? Perhaps not, but for Americans who value life, we have every right to work through political and legal avenues (as did our predecessors in previous civil rights struggles) to try to prevent the violent slaughter of millions of unborn children and the wounding of their mothers. We applaud the GOP for setting forth this goal for our country and will continue to work toward the day when this worthy goal becomes a reality.

Todd Akin admitted he misspoke and apologized. It’s time to focus on and expose Obama’s radical positions. Obama never met an abortion he didn’t like. His positions are so extreme he even voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. His HHS contraceptive mandate which is an attack on the first amendment’s religious liberty and freedom of conscience protections was drafted with the help of Planned Parenthood and other like minded groups who will financially benefit from the new policy. Moreover, his national healthcare plan will force every American to pay for abortion and will ration health care for the elderly. He has given millions of our hard earned tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider who has been repeatedly caught on tape aiding and abetting the sexual predators of minors. And there’s so much more! It’s time to expose these positions to the American people and stop playing into the feeding frenzy of the left.

    I wonder if Barrack Hussein Obama ever read what Margaret Sanger wrote?

    “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

    Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

    “Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”

    Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review.

    “Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.

    “Faith is the worst curse of mankind, as  the exact antithesis and enemy of thought.”
    -Ayn Rand

    Wonder if Paul Ryan ever read his role model?

    And what type of help do you offer those who “regret” their abortions- a guest appearance on Fox News?
