From the President
FULL SPEED AHEAD!
For pro-lifers these are trying times. So let’s keep a clear mind.
The right to life once again was not the overriding issue in the national election campaign—not yet. But it did play a major role in the presidential, congressional, and state races. In fact, the “pro-life increment” was very big.
In a post-election poll commissioned by NRLC, 65% of respondents said that the abortion issue did not affect their vote (overwhelmingly reflecting fears about jobs and the economy). Yet, 25% of voters replied that the abortion issue affected their vote and, therefore, voted for pro-life candidates. In contrast, only 9% voted for a candidate favoring abortion because the abortion issue affected their vote.
And who delivered that “pro-life increment” of 16%? You! You, who sacrificed your time and treasure for the sake of the babies. You, who distributed literature and volunteered to spread the pro-life message. And you, who have life already, but put aside your personal interests and voted for someone else’s rights, the rights of the unborn. We thank you and are proud of you.
