Life matters. Anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one knows the pain and heartache associated with that loss. They know that life matters.
More than 61 million unborn children have lost their lives to abortion in the United States since 1973. Their little lives matter, too.
As the presidential, congressional and state-level election dates are barreling toward us ever so quickly, we need to be mindful of that very fact: life matters. It’s our first right. Our fundamental right.
We know that passing pro-life legislation saves lives. Therefore, electing pro-life legislators saves lives.
Just weeks from now, Democrat voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina will vote to determine which of the remaining twelve “top-tier” Democrat presidential candidates will go on to challenge pro-life President Donald Trump in November. Each of those twelve candidates supports a policy of abortion on demand through birth.
Seven of the top-tier Democrat presidential candidates are listed in order of their polling averages in our 2020 Presidential Candidate comparison, which can be downloaded here.
You can download President Trump’s “Record on Life” here.
Congressional primaries begin on March 3, on “Super Tuesday,” although early voting for many of the states will be in February. Super Tuesday states include Alabama, Arkansas, California, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. Nearly one third of all voters will have the opportunity to vote in one day!
Before you vote, be sure to find out where the candidates stand on this issue.
Remember when you vote in the upcoming primaries and in November, that without the right to life, no other rights exist. Life matters.
