THINKING CLEARLY ABOUT THE ELECTION IN 2000
primaries and the fall election in the year 2000 are still many months away, it is not too
early for pro-lifers to think about sound strategy. Strategy must serve the long-term goal
of establishing the right to life, putting an end to abortion, and eliminating the threat
of euthanasia and infanticide. In pursuing that strategy, pro-lifers must guard against
actions that may appear "principled" on the surface but are--through unintended
consequences-- advancing the pro-abortionists' agenda.
THE RIGHT TO LIFE
As I have stated many times before, the right to life is the core fabric of any "seamless garment" of social justice--not a hem or sleeve or mere decoration. There is no social justice without the right to life. The first principle of public policy must be to follow the Declaration of Independence and protect the " unalienable" right to life as "endowed by the Creator."
