The Rebirth of the Pro-Life Movement
America's Independent Party ^ | 11-13-2008 | Judy Zabik

Posted on 11/13/2008 9:46:23 AM PST by EternalVigilance

It’s time for new leadership in the pro-life movement and, thankfully, that leadership is now beginning to rise up all across America. This is happening under the banner of the Personhood Movement, which recognizes the personhood of all unborn children and the fact that they are therefore protected by the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment.

For more than three decades, the existing leadership of the pro-life movement has pursued a strategy of regulating abortion rather than ending it. Instead of insisting on our nation’s most important founding principle of the protection of the unalienable God-given right to life for all, by forgetting this timeless principle upon which our liberty is premised, they have thereby ceded the moral, political, and legal battle to the enablers of the abortion industry.

This failed strategy is now putting our posterity further into danger’s path. President-elect Obama has promised to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which will, in effect, nullify any incremental pro-life law or regulation that has been passed over the last 35 years. While National Right to Life and their compromised allies will never acknowledge it, this would leave these “conventional” pro-life organizations no alternative but to embrace Human Life Amendments. Unfortunately, NRLC has consistently worked to undermine these efforts in every state where one has been introduced.

Right to Life of Michigan is one of the largest and most highly esteemed conventional pro-life organizations in the nation. And yet, they opposed Michigan’s Human Life Amendment in 2006. From the Grand Rapids Press, March, 2006:

“Rather than try to directly ban abortion, Right to Life of Michigan wants to put its resources into electing a U.S. senator and governor who oppose abortion,” said Paul Miller, chairman of the group's PAC.

Predictably, since then, they have lost all of it: the Human Life Amendment, one race for Governor and two for the U.S. Senate. In fact, one of these U.S. Senate candidates lost his RLM pro-life endorsement precisely because he supported the Human Life Amendment petition drive.

Let’s fast forward to today. In Michigan, RLM prides itself on being an 800-pound political gorilla. How did this political powerhouse fare in the 2008 election? Let’s take a look:

1. They lost 17 State Representative seats.
2. They lost 12 Circuit or District Court judges.
3. They lost one position on the Wayne State Board of Regents.
4. They lost the University of Michigan Board of Regents.
5. They lost one position on the Michigan State University Board of Trustees.
6. They lost one position on the State Board of Education.
7. They lost an incumbent Michigan State Supreme Court Justice.
8. They lost two incumbent U.S. Congressmen.
9. They lost the U.S. Senate race.
10. They lost the presidential race.
11. They lost the fight against Proposal 2, which legalizes and funds embryonic stem cell research.

These so-called “leaders” have now proven, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that their supposed pragmatism is really nothing more than unprincipled shortsightedness. Their total ineffectiveness, their complete irrelevance to anything real, is now apparent to all.

Proposal 2 passed because of these people’s lack of conviction and focus on the true crime of embryonic stem cell research: it kills human beings, persons who have just as much right to live as anybody else. A mountain of money was used, not to make the case for preserving the integrity of America’s most precious principles, but instead focused entirely on money issues. The true stakes were obscured by their trivialization of the most important moral issue of our time.

Had they shown a human face, represented by the thousands of living “snowflake babies,” those children who had formerly been frozen embryos but who were adopted out and given life, as a comparison with the sterile medical term, “stem cell research,” the results would have likely been far different. This doesn’t even take into account the huge amount of money that RLM, through its political arms, spent trying to elect a man who ran ads in the recent election promising to spend millions more of the taxpayers’ dollars on life-destroying embryonic stem cell research: Senator John McCain.

The extent to which Right to Life of Michigan is willing to play all political sides was best conveyed by the Michigan State Senate Leader, Mike Bishop (R) when, in 2004, he and his pro-abortion Democrat opponent received a co-endorsement from RLM.

Senator Bishop:

“For me, the issue of life is a core conviction not subject to the whims of political expediency. I stand by my votes for life and with those who supported me, but I cannot stand up for an organization, which through a co-endorsement, makes a mockery of the principles and ideals upon which the organization was founded. If a candidate with a 92% approval rating from Planned Parenthood is as worthy of endorsement as the candidate with a 100% pro-life voting record, then something is fundamentally flawed in the way that organization chooses their endorsements. Then again maybe it is a wake-up call for the grassroots supporters to reevaluate who their leaders are.”

But there is a new day dawning. We have been inspired this year by the courageous efforts of those in Colorado who worked tirelessly to put their Personhood Amendment, which recognizes the unalienable right to life of all from the moment of fertilization, on the ballot. Their efforts resulted in the gathering of more than twice as many petition signatures as required to do so. While the effort did not succeed at the ballot box this time, there is new momentum all over the nation to introduce and pass Personhood and Human Life Amendments. One of the brand new organizations founded to help in these efforts, Personhood USA, cites 16 states that already have initiatives underway.

So all is not lost. New leadership brings with it new hope. Those of us who believe that the right to life is unalienable shall continue to pursue the protection of unborn children through the ratification of Personhood Amendments, state by state. For the sake of our babies, let us hope and pray that the compromised leaders of the past come to their senses and begin to do what is right. Regardless of whether they do or not, we are going forward, with or without them.

A full-grown person is a “person,” and yet it’s still legal to kill that person under certain circumstances, such as self-defense.

true?

I received a postcard touting both McCain’s and Palin’s support of stem cell research. Was this aborted embryonic?

I was taken aback by it.

It is clear that some in the Right to Life movement are in fact working against it.

That includes those who keep saying to wait, to only go for pesos instead of for full dollars.

I agree with the pro life movement. But we need to recover America's Judeo-Christian roots. If that can't be done, the country is finished. Same sex marriage, embryonic stem cell research, abortion on demand and euthanasia indicate the rot has taken root and spread deeply into the American body politic. The patient is very sick.

George W. Bush channeled 2.2 billion dollars to Planned Parenthood during his eight years as president.

The Republicans pretend to be pro-life then when we vote for them they snicker at us and call us “suckers” then they do whatever serves their purpose.

Let’s face it, we pro-lifers don’t have a friend in politics.

So, seccession is the answer. South Caroline could seceed from the Union in 2020 and abolish abortion.

Just as the USSC recognized 10th A. protected state rights in the Terri Schiavo case, the corrupt USSC should have recognized 10th A. protected state rights when it decided Roe v. Wade. But the Roe v. Wade opinion doesn’t even mention 10th A. protected state rights.

The problem is that constitutionally clueless FDR got the USSC to politically repeal 10th A. protected state powers when he established his constitutionally unauthorized New Deal federal spending programs. And special-interest liberal justices have evidently been practicing a double-standard since that time when it comes to respecting 10th A. protected state powers.

Abortion opponents lost their way when they started to rely on political solutions rather than pulpit solutions. Seeking laws to reduce abortions should be replaced by messages from religious leaders to mothers-to-be and the medical community. If these can’t be convinced neither will politicians. It still ends up with hearts and minds.

Not plausible considering the fact that McCain supports killing babies who are at the embryonic stage. I find the fact that the ads didn’t specify to be egregious.

McCain and Palin were both against creation of new embryos for any research, stem cell or otherwise. They supported the Bush agenda for allowing embryonic stem cell research on the embryos that were already destroyed at the time of his executive order.

Her name was on it.

And, like McCain, she takes the Stephen A. Douglas Democrat position that claims that states’ rights trumps the unalienable right to life.

Q: Would you expand federal funding of embryonic stem cell research?

John McCain:

A: I believe that we need to fund this. This is a tough issue for those of us in the pro-life community. I would remind you that these stem cells are either going to be discarded or perpetually frozen. We need to do what we can to relieve human suffering. It’s a tough issue. I support federal funding.

Dear God,

Take away all sense of hopelessness wrought by the election results, for we know that there is always a way and always a reason for hope in You. Redirect us to the course You want us to follow, that we as a nation may come together to defend Your most innocent; to acknowledge You as our Creator; and above all, to honor You. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

The Congress has appropriated and directed payment of annual subsidies of hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood for many years, apparently on the (unwarranted) premise that PPI performs valuable public service in “family planning.” It was not done at on the initiative or the request of President Bush, neither in his administration nor in all those preceding admnistrations. Granted, Bush could have sequestered those designated funds, but rarely does a president use that tactic.

Everyone, and I mean every one, knows that Planned Parenthood is an abortion provider. There aren’t any good natured Congressmen out there who are saying, “Gosh, I didn’t know PPI was an abortion provider who moonlights as a political agitator.”

The Republicans in Congress and President Bush in particular are to blame for our current troubles. Imagine, Planned Parenthood getting money from the government.

Can we get organized already? Our rights are going to disappear and abortion mills will receive government funding in addition to the customer’s paying for the service.

How did we lose so badly?

The other side's been able to hold us at stalemate for a very long period of time. Yes, we've been able to whittle at the edges, a few states have parental notification provisions and such, but the basic fact remains: For over thirty-five years now, 99% of abortions have been essentially unimpeded by legal restrictions.

That means we have an entire generation that has grown up with that set of circumstances being a "norm". They have been prevented from making the connection between their fates and that of the unborn siblings that died in the womb. It's human nature to look at someone else's unfortunate situation, and rationalize why that happened to them, and not to you.

We have been inspired this year by the courageous efforts of those in Colorado who worked tirelessly to put their Personhood Amendment, which recognizes the unalienable right to life of all from the moment of fertilization, on the ballot.

And yet the people of Colorado voted down this amendment by embarrassingly large margins. Even El Paso county, one of the most conservative counties in the country, voted it down by large margins.

So how is this evidence of success? If this idea could barely get 25% of the vote in Colorado, how is it a winning idea?

So you're saying it's stupid to pray about pro-life issues? I don't think so. We serve an awesome God and it is His will that we honor Him as Creator and take care of His most innocent creations. He does not grant us immediate relief from our troubles and He gives us free-will to disobey Him, but He does honor every prayer spoken in earnest.

Doug(ashamed)4(supporting)McCain asked "Can we get organized already?" The success of the good folks in Colorado in getting personhood amendment on the ballot there inspired me to work for personhood amendment here in Maryland. We have to get such an amendment passed through the state legislature, however -- there is no provision here for the voters to directly amend our Constitution. So if you're in Maryland, please dial in to the new town-hall-style statewide conference calls for a new party that puts America's principles first -- Maryland Independent Party. Details available here. For other states, check out our national party -- already the third-largest national party, behind only the Democratic and Republican, in terms of numbers of registered voters. Our goal is to raise up a new generation of leaders -- and we're looking to start winning seats in our state house in 2010 election.

Of course it is. Our Constitution makes the distinction between innocent human life and those who are guilty of a capital crime.

It's not a crime to kill a person who is completely innocent of any capital crime if he steps out in front of your car on the freeway.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see the unborn get some manner of due process as persons rather than as property, but simply declaring the unborn as "persons" isn't going to be a pro-life panacea.

If that is achieved, I expect the pro-aborts will just pass laws saying that killing an unborn person is "justifiable homicide."
