On Tuesday, November 7, we should vote for...

Now that I have your attention, hello, fellow pro-lifers! I’ll finish the rest of the title for this article in a moment, but a few words first.

Fact: Even though abortion is legal throughout the entire nine months of pregnancy for any reason whatsoever, over the past four decades pro-lifers have developed an intensive infrastructure of help for women with untimely pregnancies. NO WOMAN HAS TO RESORT TO KILLING HER UNBORN CHILD AS A WAY OUT OF A “PROBLEM” PREGNANCY, THANKS TO THE SUPPORT THAT WE PRO-LIFERS PROVIDE.

Fact: Even though handicapped children are threatened by academics like Peter Singer at Princeton, who think that a handicapped newborn baby does not deserve to be considered a human being, WE PRO-LIFERS AFFIRM THE HANDICAPPED, CHERISHING THEIR INNOCENCE AND THE JOY THAT THEY BRING TO A SOMETIMES HOPELESS WORLD.

Fact: Even though the elderly are increasingly treated as burdens instead of the delightful people that they are, WE PRO-LIFERS CHERISH NOT ONLY THE WISDOM OF THOSE WHO CAN TEACH US YOUNGER FOLK HOW TO LIVE, BUT ALSO THEIR ENTHUSIASM FOR DOING PRO-LIFE WORK. (Why is it that someone twice my age has more energy than I do? Thank God for them!)

Fact: THE ELECTION ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2006, IS CRUCIAL FOR THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT. We cannot afford to turn back the progress that pro-lifers have made in the country. This election should not concern economic matters (the economy is stronger now than it was when terrorists killed our people on September 11). This election should not concern foreign policy (terrorism against the unborn, the handicapped, and the elderly is as bad as that against our born citizens). This election is about restoring the right to life. Therefore, to finish the statement above:

On Tuesday, November 7, we should vote for the pro-life movement!
