Pro Life Politicians

 

 

Who says that pro life candidates like Illinois Senator Peter Fitzgerald cannot win major elections?!

The fact is that, in the state of Illinois, the passionately pro-life United States Senate candidate Peter Fitzgerald overwhelmed his pro-abortion opponent at the ballot box in November.

Sen. Fitzgerald now represents one more vote and voice for life in the U.S. Senate--even as the removal of Carol Moseley-Braun represents one less vote for death, in that same chamber.

Why was the Illinois race significant? It was especially intriguing since the popular wisdom of the day would have supposed that the liberal candidate would prevail--given the moral decay of our society. The fact that this did not happen--and that the race wasn't even very close--gives great encouragement to the warriors for life and truth.

As we look ahead to the general elections of the year 2000--let us not for a moment suppose that the issue of life should be put on the shelf, or hidden from the public's eye. Candidates who are pro-life must prove themselves to be faithful and courageous--even in the face of harsh criticism and the distortion of their message.

The pro-life community has a moral and sacred responsibility to vote, and to support the candidates for life. Our failure to take responsibility has led to many calamities--including the election of the present inhabitant of the White House.

"America, Yugoslavia, and Kosovo" by Dennis Dillard

Bombing Yugoslavia To Pressure Milosevic To Stop The Killing in Kosovo

Here we go again. President Clinton, the United States of America, and NATO are using military might to force Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic to sign a peace treaty with the Ethnic Albanians of Kosovo. The United Nations terms the action regrettable, but necessary.

It is hoped that this peace plan will bring an end to civil war and stop what has been termed ethnic cleansing, in that country. According to ABC News, before the NATO attack started, this civil war had claimed approx 2000 lives in the last year. Americans rightly wish that all the people of the world, including those of Kosovo, could be safe from violence and death. We are glad that America is sometimes able to help the oppressed, as we have done recently in places like Haiti, Iraq, and Bosnia, and are trying to do in Kosovo.

Let us consider however, whether we in America really occupy the moral high ground on the issues of violence and genocide. For example:

This same President Clinton has repeatedly vetoed protection for living unborn human beings from the violence acts of death perpetuated by the abortion industry in America, including the especially horrific partial birth abortion procedure that would make death by a bullet seem merciful.

The judicial system of this same United States, sanctions the killing of 1,500,000 of her own unborn citizens each year; she has allowed the murder of 40,000,000 over the last 26 years.

The same United Nations promotes genocide against the unborn human being all over the globe and there are over 50,000,000 babies killed by abortion every year in our world, including forced abortions in countries like China, (have you heard much from the White House on this one?).

So, perhaps some other nation should be sending troops to the United States of America to dissuade us from our war of genocide against unborn children, our ethnic cleansing, our oppression of innocent human beings, our Kosovo.

Now, that s an idea! Maybe, the Serbs of Yugoslavia, when they get themselves together and start acting like the Orthodox Christians they claim to be, and get rid of the war criminals among them, and stop killing their own people, maybe then they will send some "peace keepers" over here to our country and stop us from killing ours.

Yea!! Perhaps, all the nations of the world could send all their soldiers to somebody else’s far off land, where they could keep the peace and protect the all the weak and oppressed people of the someone else's country. Then maybe all wars and violence and death would be a thing of the past ... Perhaps ...
