We’re one year out from election day: November 8, 2016. In fact, we’re only months away from the first presidential primary elections!
Are you prepared?
One of the most important ways anyone can help save unborn children is with their vote. The impact pro-life voters make in sending pro-life candidates to Congress, the White House, and their state capitols is immeasurable. Research demonstrates that pro-life legislation saves lives, and every life saved is priceless.
If you have never voted, or if you have moved since you last voted, you will need to register to vote. If you will be 18 years old by November 8, 2016, you can register to vote.
You can register to vote on-line by clicking here.
Are your pro-life friends prepared?
As an ambitious pro-lifer – by virtue of the fact that you’re reading this article, I consider you an ambitious pro-lifer – you will want to be sure all of your pro-life friends and family are ready to vote.
An even more ambitious pro-lifer will organize a voter registration drive in their church or community.
Some years ago, a local pro-life chapter organized a voter registration drive in a small West Virginia church. Fifteen people including the pastor and his wife registered to vote! They meant to register after they moved but had not found the time.
In a close race, a few votes may make a difference.
Remember, lives are at stake, and elections have consequences. Dire consequences when the White House is inhabited by a pro-abort who vetoes life-affirming legislation.
Make a difference for 2016. If you’re not registered to vote, do it now. Once you’re registered, or if you’re already registered, make sure your pro-life friends are registered as well.
It makes a world of difference to those whose lives depend on us.
