Fred Thompson Receives Endorsement of California ProLife Council
Earned Media ^ | December 17, 2007 | Jeff Sadosky

Posted on 12/17/2007 2:45:25 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Today Senator Fred Thompson received the endorsement of the California ProLife Council.

"There are so many pro-life candidates in the race," said Lawrence Lehr, PAC Chairman. "But Fred Thompson is clearly the one, consistently pro-life candidate with the ability to win in November. It is important that pro-life voters rally around a candidate that can make a difference."

The California ProLife Council is the state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee. CPLC is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian grassroots organization dedicated to the cessation of the perceived need for abortion, euthanasia and infanticide. California ProLife Council believes this goal will be accomplished on two fronts: (1) working within the law to change the law and (2) changing public opinion through education.

"I'm blessed and honored to have the endorsement of California ProLife Council for President of the United States," said Senator Thompson. "From the heartland of America, and now coast to coast, right to life organizations have voted to endorse my candidacy because they know I have stood with them yesterday, I stand with them today, and will stand with them tomorrow. They know I have the ability to win this election. They know I believe in the sanctity of life and as President I will do all that I can to do to protect life."

Fred Thompson is pro-life. He believes in the sanctity of human life and that every life is worthy of respect. He had a 100% pro-life voting record in the Senate and believes Roe v. Wade was a bad decision that ought to be overturned. He consistently opposed federal funding to promote or pay for abortion and supported the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act, the Child Custody Protection Act, and President Reagan's Mexico City policy. While Fred Thompson supports adult stem cell research, he opposes embryonic stem cell research. He also opposes human cloning.

Finally, a Presidential candidate that really is in it “for the children.”
He is in this for ALL of our future generations, he said so himself and for the first time in a long time, I’m believing a “politician”.

Off topic to this thread...

But have you got any info or listing of the states that Thompson has qualified to be on the ballot? I would guess that many of the deadlines are rapidly approaching if not passed in some of the states.... I know some states are automatic if one has media creds and others require signature petitions..... just curious as this is an important part of the process also.

DE is not an absolute exclusion at this time. He filed the paperwork but was short some signatures. As I understand the process he’ll be granted some additional time to complete the process. I’m not aware of any he has missed for sure at this point. Thanks and don’t worry about those hiccups, they happen at times.

“You would think California would choose Hunter...”


We don’t know who he is, and he is my congressman! His 26 years have been pretty quiet.

That because, well ? Fred is Fred, that's why we like him, he won't pander, put on a fake conservative mask and turn into a chameleon like Mitt or Ruty, or Huck.
