Choose the path that leads to life!

This tells one of the reasons why we MUST choose one particular candidate over the other, from among the two main presidential candidates.

“One Law, One Election…Millions of Lives at Stake” Article by Barbara Holt found at http://www.catholicexchange.com/2008/09/26/113888/

Update on Friday, October 10, 2008

I was looking at that article again and realized that an extended excerpt from it might be helpful to include in this post:

“All of this discussion about the FOCA goes to the heart of what is at stake in the upcoming presidential election. It underscores just how much the presidential election means to the pro-life movement and to the unborn whose lives the movement is trying to defend and protect. Who we elect as the next president really does make a difference to these tiny unborn human members of our family. The FOCA is but one important life or death change that can happen if we elect a pro-abortion president. Let us consider just what else a pro-abortion president can do during his four-year term of office.

The first executive order he would rescind would probably be the Mexico City Policy, which prevents tax dollars from going to organizations, which promote or provide abortions or work to overturn the laws of pro-life countries.

The pro-abortion president also is expected to force us to pay for abortions through a national health care program.

The next president will have the opportunity to nominate justices to the U. S. Supreme Court. The current court voted in a 5-4 decision in Gonzalez v. Carhart to uphold the ban on partial birth abortions. A pro-abortion president nominating and having the U. S. Senate confirm just one justice to the U. S. can make a dramatic shift in how the court makes future abortion decisions. It is estimated that the next president could name 2-3 individuals to the U. S. Supreme Court. If we elect a pro-abortion president, it could be at another 35 years before we have another chance at a Supreme Court that will vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973. How many more unborn children will die because of that one newly appointed justice?

But the U. S. Supreme Court is not the only court the pro-abortion president will affect. A pro-abortion president will name individuals for all the federal courts, including the courts of appeal. Many pro-life cases like the “Choose Life” special registration plate and parental consent or notification cases have been struck down at the court of appeals level.

Finally, a pro-abortion president will name individuals to cabinet posts, ambassadorships and other levels of the government who will share his pro-abortion views. Those individuals will promote abortion policies.

Now that you know what is at stake, you need to take a close look at the views and voting records of the two major presidential candidates. One of these two men will be our next president and you will have the opportunity to decide which. Only you can reach certain voters who need this information in order to make an informed choice about how to vote. I hope you will use this information to educate the many others that you know or come into contact with between now and that time. Remember, the lives of millions depend on how you and others vote on November 4.
