A recent article details a former congressman promising that a Republican majority would take up issues like abortion after victory in November. But don’t get your hopes up.
Republicans have a long history of breaking their (election) promises to stop the murder of children in our culture. Why is it that supposedly pro-life Republicans have not succeeded in stopping abortion even though they’ve controlled the legislative and executive branches at numerous times and for long spans since 1973? It’s because, for the most part, politicians (both parties included) don’t REALLY want to end abortion. Rather, many see abortion as an election issue whereby they can excite their constituents to keep putting them back in office. As long as pro-life voters fail to demand accountability from politicians regarding election promises, little of consequence will ever be accomplished in the pro-life fight.
Don’t believe everything you hear from politicians, especially around election time.
‘Tea party’s’ Dick Armey: A GOP majority would take up abortion fight
The Christian Science Monitor
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012, said in June that the next president “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues” so that the nation’s debt and deficit problems could be solved.
Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man. “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God, He made man. And as for you, be fruitful and multiply; Bring forth abundantly in the earth And multiply in it.” (NKJV)
