What Does Walker Recall Victory Mean for Unborn Children?
Everything. Governor Scott Walker’s decisive and stunning recall victory is rippling through Wisconsin and the nation. The consequences are huge – especially for continuation of building a culture of life in this great state. Make no mistake – Governor Walker is a true believer in preserving the sanctity of human life. He began his advocacy for life as a student at Marquette University where he was leader of the campus pro-life group. As a State Assembly Representative and now as Governor, Walker has established an unprecedented record of leadership and support for the most vulnerable among us.
In the short time he has been Governor, numbers of impactful laws have been signed to take dollars away from Planned Parenthood, curb the abortion involvement of the University of Wisconsin Hospital Authority, protect taxpayers from paying for abortions, and protect women from coerced and dangerous RU 486 chemical abortions. As a result of one of these laws, Planned Parenthood and one other abortion clinic have stopped doing chemical abortions in Wisconsin.
The recall victory has huge national implications. President Obama’s election team just placed Wisconsin in the toss-up or battleground category, despite the President’s 14 point victory in 2008. Although exit and other polls still show Obama leading Romney in Wisconsin, the 18-month chaos, huge Walker turnout, and sophisticated get out the vote effort have gotten the full attention of the Obama team and national pundits. President Obama did not come to Wisconsin to campaign for Mayor Tom Barrett, probably for good reason as he sensed a Barrett loss. Now, his election team is watching what seemed like a sure win for Wisconsin’s electoral votes slip away.
Planned Parenthood and its allies are reeling. Governor Walker has taken on the status of cult hero, or, as described by Barrett, a “rock star.” He is truly loved by his supporters who came out in droves to work and vote for him. Walker’s recall victory surpassed his 2010 totals by significant numbers. It appears that Governor Walker will have a long tenure as leader of our great state of Wisconsin, and that is very good news for those we defend.
The Real “War on Women” — Killing Baby Girls
Just Because They Are Girls
By Carol Tobias, National Right to Life
Barack Obama is losing votes among women. So his campaign concocted a claim that his opponents are conducting a “war on women.”
The Obama campaign is known for this kind of demagoguery. A policy disagreement becomes a “war.” Exaggeration fades into lies.
So what would constitute a “war”? Killing people, to start with. Ironic, then, that the Obama Administration strongly supports a policy – abortion – that does just that. And in some places, it’s baby girls who are being targeted by abortion, because some people prefer to have a baby boy.
It’s called sex-selection abortion. A test is done to determine the sex of an unborn child. Often, if the test shows the baby is a girl, she is killed.
And it’s happening right here in the United States. An Austin, Texas Planned Parenthood employee was recently caught on tape counseling a woman how to get a sex-selection abortion. These kinds of abortions are usually done in secret because they’re so disturbing to the public, but they are occurring.
We can stop this war on baby girls by enacting legislation to ban sex-selection abortions in the United States. A solid majority of the U.S. House of Representatives just voted in favor of a bill (H.R. 3541) to ban the killing of an unborn baby because of gender.
Yesterday the White House announced that the Obama Administration opposes the bill! Is there any form of abortion Obama doesn’t support?
The National Right to Life Victory Fund is dedicated to defeating Barack Obama and pro-abortion members of the U.S. Senate and House who are blocking life-saving legislation like the ban on sex-selection abortions and other compassionate pro-life bills. Your financial support of the NRL Victory Fund will hasten the day when children will no longer be targeted for death because of their gender.
Unborn children deserve so much more than the violence of abortion. We work for the day when every unborn girl and boy can enjoy their first months of life in peace and protection of the law.
Catholics Desert President Obama: Could Swing Election for Romney
In 2008, President Obama enjoyed wide support from American Catholics, with 54% voting for him compared to 45% for John McCain. The Catholic vote is critical to his re-election, and now that voter segment’s support for the President is in doubt. One of the key reasons is the Obama administration HHS mandate which forces Catholic institutions to pay for drugs and treatments that violate the principles of the Church.
In early March, a Pew Research Center survey found that President Obama was ahead of any opponent by nine points with Catholic voters. A more recent poll by the same group shows considerable slippage with 47% of Catholics stating they would vote for President Obama compared to 52% for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. If these numbers hold up, President Obama would lose some 18 million voters, a very significant swing in the wrong direction for the President’s re-election chances, especially in key election states.
How could the President have gone so wrong with a large voter group so enamored with his message in 2008? Some genius adviser apparently convinced him that creation of a “war on women” would advance his candidacy. Even Catholic women would side with the President instead of their own church, and large numbers of other women, especially young women, would swing to his side to compensate for the loss of other Catholics.
Not only has the President alienated numbers of Catholics with the mandate, but he single-handedly strengthened the resolve of members of other faiths who smell an unprecedented assault on religion that will impact all churches. A gross miscalculation on the President’s part which, added to his undeterred support for abortion on demand, could lead to his defeat in November. Let’s hope so.
