About
Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

Ashamed to be "pro-life"

Blarg. It's infuriating to read the Texas gubernatorial candidates stance on abortion. Bell and Friedman are upfront about their pro-choice stance, but Perry and Strayhorn neatly sidesteps the issue. Strayhorn says she "respects the sanctity of life" but declines to answer all but one of the following questions. She answers the question of rape and incest with "it's a tough decision blah blah blah"

Perry doesn't do much better. Though he has a strong pro-life legacy in our state, and answers most questions in a straightforward way, he evades the question of the overturning of roe v. wade.

The democrats are clear on their shameful positions, why can't republicans stand up for their beliefs?

  • It's important to remember that many democrats are against abortion. During this election time, we should remember that our voted should be based on more than one issue.

  • Of course, and to be fair two of the candidates are actually "independent" but one is more liberal and the other conservative. I didn't mean to paint all democrats as pro-choice, but it seems to be true in this election.

    My main complaint is when a candidate refuses to make it clear exactly what he believes and where his loyalties lie. Again, the liberals did a better job of this than the conservative in this arena.

    There are several issues of importance to me, but I believe that the way a candidate views the sanctity of life has much to do with their views on other issues. Of course, there are many times that this ideal does not occur. And right now, I'm not sure if any of our candidates have a consistant world view.

    I wish that a pro-life democrat was running this this election, but that does not seem to be the case.

    Whatever the outcome, it should be interesting to see what happens in this very close 4 way race.

    Thank you for your comment and God bless.

    Bull. Bullbullbullbull. If there was a candidate that supported legalizing child abuse allowing parents to dismember their born children, would you say, "Well, I don't agree with that, but what's your stance on economics and gay rights?"

    Besides the fact that pro-life is not one issue (think embryonic stem cell research, cloning, assisted suicide, euthanasia, medical neglect, elder care, and abortion), it's THE issue. If your life were worthless and extinguishable under the law for a couple hundred dollars and a medical school wash-out with forceps, you'd think differently. If you're not the one being killed, you can look at all the other issues. But you have to have priorities and nothing compares to the legalized slaughter of defenseless human beings by the people intended to love and care for them. Nothing.
