I am a pro-life, conservative Christian. I believe life is one of the three unalienable rights — Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness — guaranteed by the Constitution, and the three items that the Federal Government is mandated to protect for its citizens. Extinguishing innocent human life prematurely is not morally permissible no matter the size, the age, the location or the level of development of any person. This is something that I believe Oregon Right to Life and I can agree on. Matter of fact Oregon Right To Life’s policy page states,
“Oregon Right to Life believes in the sanctity of all human life from the moment of conception to natural death. We are opposed to abortion under any circumstances except where the life of the mother is in imminent danger.”
Bravo. So how does this organization fail in a disastrous way towards fulfilling this mission? By endorsing federal candidates who only politically align themselves with Oregon Right to Life in order to gain an endorsement and/or to eliminate potential challengers.
