Many politicians – and others – are afraid to discuss abortion. That’s a big mistake.
Take vice presidential candidate Gov. Mike Pence’s debate performance on Tuesday. He won, and part of the reason was the way he handled abortion.
No clichés, just compassion. No bumper sticker phrases, just facts.
Let me quote Gov. Pence from the debate:
“But what I can’t understand is with Hillary Clinton, and now Senator Kaine at her side, is to support a practice like partial-birth abortion. The very idea that a child that is almost born into the world could still have their life taken from them is just anathema to me.”
Americans think partial-birth abortion is despicable. We passed a law that banned it, but now there are threats to bring it back by Supreme Court decree. And Hillary Clinton wants to make us all pay for abortions with our tax dollars.
The lesson is that the real extremists are on the pro-abortion side. All of us should tell people that every chance we get!
And I hope all of us will support National Right to Life as it shares these truths through media, through outreach, through advertising, and through our grassroots network. Extreme policies like late abortions or taxpayer funding of abortion should never be supported!
Thank you to Gov. Pence for making that clear! And our thanks to all pro-lifers for communicating this effective message with the people you know, and for your financial support for National Right to Life’s life-saving programs!
