Only One Candidate Is Truly Pro-Life


From PRO-LIFE Blogs

We live in a country that revolves around rights and freedoms. We have the right to make certain choices about our lives, we have the freedom to do so. However, those rights and those freedoms come to an end when they affect someone else's rights. Our freedoms do not give us the right to take someone else's right to their own property by stealing. Our freedoms do not give us the right to drink irresponsibly, get behind the wheel of a car, and kill someone in an accident. Our freedoms do not give us the right to kill, and take someone else's right to live. That is the foundation of this country, and the foundation of our Constitution. Our Constitution is written to protect the natural, God-given rights that we possess. It also gives certain rights to States, and this is a very important aspect of our Constitution, but it is an important Civics lesson to learn that the rights of States do not come before human rights. That is why the law of the whole land, the Constitution, defends human rights for all the states to recognize. For those of us who believe that unborn children are human beings, and deserving of the right to live, we must realize how crucial the Constitution is in the debate. It is the Constitution that is written to protect human rights, and it is by the Constitution that we argue unborn children should have the right to live. Some argue that the decision should be left up to the states, but this goes against the Constitution's main point: That the role of government is to defend rights, and no state can take them away. Some argue that we should overturn Roe v. Wade, but it must be understood that overturning Roe v. Wade will not outlaw abortion, it will merely give states the opportunity to choose.

Of these presidential candidates, only ONE consistently believes in a federal ban on abortion:

Rudy Giuliani

Fred Thompson

Duncan Hunter

Mitt Romney

Mike Huckabee

John McCain

Can you guess which one it is?

Let's investigate:

Rudy Giuliani: No. Rudy is certainly pro-choice, "I'm very, very passionate about abortion and the whole issue of abortion. But it leads me to a conclusion, which is I oppose it. That's a principle I've held forever, and I'll hold it forever. That's not going to change. But I also believe that in a society like ours, where people have very different consciences about this, it's best for us to respect each other's differences and allow for choice."

Mitt Romney: No. "I'd love to have an America that didn't have abortion. But that's not what the American people [want] right now. And so I'd like to see Roe v. Wade overturned and allow the states to put in place pro-life legislation. I recognize that for many people, that is considered an act of murder, to have an abortion. It is without question the taking of a human life. And I believe that a civilized society must respect the sanctity of the human life."

Mitt Romney has said that he supports a Constitutional amendment, but here he seems to be indicating that he doesn't. Mitt Romney has also flip-flopped on many issues and whether he can be trusted is questionable.

Mike Huckabee: No. In February 1995, Huckabee supported revising the GOP abortion plank to let states decide their own abortion laws.

"The issue divides strongly committed pro-life and pro-choice Republicans but is not a central issue to most other Republicans. A possible platform revision long under discussion would say the Republican Party, 'unlike the Democratic Party, does not stand for abortion on demand and is basically a pro-life party.' In the spirit of federalism, the proposed GOP revision also would replace the abortion amendment with a statement saying the issue should be left up to the individual state legislatures to deal with as each sees fit. 'That's exactly what we have looked for, and if it's left up to the states, more of them are going to put some restrictions on abortion,' Arkansas Lt. Gov. Mike Huckabee said in an interview after appearing on a conference panel yesterday." (Ralph Z. Hallow, "Conservatives Hold Fire On Abortion," Washington Times, 2/12/95)

And in an April 2006 interview with the blog "Right Wing News" Huckabee indicated that abortion decisions should be left to the States.

John Hawkins [Right Wing News]: Switching gears again, do you think we should overturn Roe v. Wade?

Mike Huckabee: It would please me because I think Roe v. Wade is based on a real stretch of Constitutional application -- that somehow there is a greater privacy issue in the abortion concern -- than there is a human life issue -- and that the federal government should be making that decision as opposed to states making that decision. So, I've never felt that it was a legitimate manner in which to address this and, first of all, it should be left to the states, the 10th Amendment, but secondly, to somehow believe that the taking of an innocent, unborn human life is about privacy and not about that unborn life is ludicrous. (www.rightwingnews.com/interviews/huckabee.php)

(From The Christian News Wire: http://www.christiannewswire.com/news/232094841.html)

Fred Thompson: No. Look at this video, where Fred agrees that he does NOT support a Constitutional amendment but supports merely leaving it to the states: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWBX1Hch1tc and merely means to abolish Roe v. Wade.

John McCain: No. "I'd love to see a point where Roe vs. Wade is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade, which would then force women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations." [ Source: Ron Fournier, Associated Press Aug 24, 1999]

John McCain does not even support overturning Roe v. Wade, much less a federal ban. However, he seems to believe that overturning Roe v. Wade DOES include a federal ban on abortion, WHICH IT DOES NOT.

Last but not least:

Duncan Hunter: YES

"I would amend the U.S. Constitution and provide blanket protection to all unborn children from the moment of conception by prohibiting any state or federal law that denies the personhood of the unborn.
Likewise, I have also introduced the Right to Life Act, which would legally define "personhood" as the moment of conception and, therefore, guarantee all constitutional rights and protections, including life, to the unborn without utilizing a constitutional amendment." [www.gohunter08.com]

Duncan Hunter wrote a bill called the Life at Conception Act, that would define life at conception ensuring that the 14th amendment applies to unborn children in defending life. You can read about the bill here: http://www.prolifealliance.com/life%20at%20conception%20act.htm

He has a 100% rating from the National Right to Life, and in all 26 years of experience in Congress he has never changed his mind.

Vote for a candidate that walks the walk, and really believes in life and our human rights: Duncan Hunter 08.

"We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child."
- Ronald Reagan

UPDATE:
For those who would deny that Ronald Reagan would support reversing roevwade and/or a bill protecting the unborn as Rep Hunter has authored... I direct you HERE.
He suggests exactly what Duncan Hunter has proposed.

belle, your comments will not be posted unless your tone changes significantly.

I will address one of your concerns for sport and illustration only.

The quote you referenced has been noted and corrected.

I would point out that there is no difference in "supporting amendment to the constitution" and "amending the constitution" in terms of the context of the meaning. If he supports amending the constitution it would follow that he would therefore if given the chance "amend the constitution".

But to liberals, (and ronpaulers belle?) the nuance of supporting something and actually doing something are worlds apart.

If this weren't true poverty and crime and hunger and abuse would be no more, there would be no rich, no poor, only happy middle class democrats... however, broken promises converted into dreams and hopes is the platform of the liberal.

Duncan Hunter has gotten results in virtually EVERY issue he has addressed.

Elect him President and give him a Republican majority in congress and you'll see things get done like you've NEVER seen before.

But belle, you can stop with the ridiculous accusations and personal attacks.

One should tale notice of Huckabee. He's not what he claims to be.
Duncan Hunter. He's stronger than Huckabee is in every issue. Hunter is a strong christian too.
Check out what Huckabee says about stem reach. He 's says he supports the use of existing line. However he does not think life should be created to be destroyed. That is a contradiction.

1- If you disapprove embryonic stem research and have no intention of using it, then why would you use the existing line/remains of dissected unborn Children at all? these are dead dissected Children.
2- The White House ha allowed this back door compromise for three years now. There were only four lines (dissected pre born babies), how con these lines never run ou?
3- They don't run out because even though the government does not fund them they still allow private investers to continue this research.
4- These embryonic lines a new victims of embryonic Research. The supply does not run out.

Then Huckabee is weak on defense, illegal immigration, national security ,and sovereignty. Huckabee has compromised and show special favor for illegal aliens encouraging breaking American law. Making ourlaws a joke. He is for the NAFTA free trade and SPP North American Union.

I have nothing personal against Huckabee. I feel he is not good enough and for a christian, he is very compromised. Especially on the sanctity of life issues.

Duncan Hunter is superior to Huckabees in in his record. He wrote many bills pertaining to Preserving the life of unborn children and outlawing abortion, no funding for stem cell research, border and immigration security, strong defense, American sovereignty. He wrote many bills for the protection of Pre babies. He wrote the border fence bill. He wants to bring back jobs to America.

With all these facts in mind, those of you who claim you are a christian and really want to see abortion end. Should really consider and take a true stand for truth and integrity.

And yes, I'm QUESTIONING anyone's integrity and Christianity who says they would vote for Huckabee because they think he's strong Christian, and they think he strong on prolife issuses.Noe he is not!


Danny

PS: So I'm not from a red state. But that doesn't mean New Yorkers can't be won for Hunter. Did you see how New Yorkers took a stand against Governor Eliot Spitzer about giving driving lincense to illega aliens? There is hope for New York. Many upstate New Yorkers are conservative and Christian. They could very well choose a Republican from Southern California for President. They only rebel against phony Christian Conservatives like George Bush and Mike Huckabee.

New Yorkers are begining to see the evils of the Clintons, Hillary.................

God Bless Ya' ...'Oh Danny boy!

I posted a similar analysis on Huckabee HERE

You are right about Pastor Mike being no conservative... the better definition would be "Christian left".
