Our team wouldn’t be true conservatives and people of faith if we did not reemphasize the importance of protecting the sanctity of life. Our culture, long-term viability, spiritual vibrancy, and posterity’s view of our relevance as a nation hinge on this very issue. We believe that life starts at conception. As conservatives, we must protect the life of the unborn child. Our campaign is driven by the charge to protect life and continues to be a driving factor in our individual lives. We believe that Roe v. Wade should be overturned without exception. The Bible is clear on this issue:
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
While our concentrated focus is always on overturning Roe v. Wade in its entirety, we also support pro-life legislation that incrementally saves the lives of unborn children. The heartbeat bill and/or fetal heart beat bill (to name a few) are additional ways to stop the killing of innocent lives. The ritualistic murder of unborn children is a stain on our great country. Unable to protect themselves, defenseless and innocent, the unborn child is an unwilling participant in the brutal murder practices of Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics.
Planned Parenthood should not receive any taxpayer dollars. Much like the issue of forced taxpayer funding (and healthcare provision) of contraception, forced taxpayer funding of abortions goes against the morality and religious beliefs of many Americans. Understanding that the Federal government does not have the authority to mandate people to participate in the taking of life, Roe v. Wade must be overturned and decisions remanded to the states on the topic of abortion. We also believe in the importance of the Hyde Amendment. The elected officials in the United States of America must lead our country to higher moral ground, protecting our survival as a nation! Thank you Texas, for leading the way!
