Separating Pro-life Congressmen from Pro-Death Ones.

"I'm pro-life," said ex-President Bill Clinton. Especially when campaigning in churches, politicians will say that they are pro-life. Saying you are pro-life doesn't save any babies, acting pro-life does. We don't need to overturn Roe v. Wade to re-criminalize the murdering of preborn children. It could be done in one week if the leadership of either major political party in Congress would become pro-life and act accordingly. For starters, here is what a pro-life Congressman could do right now:
1. They could co-sponsor H.R. 552, the Life at Conception Act, and move it through committee and bring it up for a vote, now!
2. They could vote against all spending bills that include one cent for Planned Parenthood or any other organization that commits, promotes, or accepts "abortion."
3. They could introduce articles of impeachment against all anti-life federal judges.
4. They could repeal the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.
5. They could refuse to endorse, campaign for, support, or vote for any other candidate who does not commit to the first four points in writing and on their websites.
Here is what some federal politicians will say after you challenge them on how pro-life they are:
"I won't get re-elected if I bring up bills that the leadership is opposed to. Do you know how mad my political party leadership would get at me if (I) tried to impeach a bad federal judge?"
Pro-Life response: "You are clearly demonstrating that your posh government job is more important to you than your soul or the lives of children. Stand on principle and trust God."
"If you don't vote for me, then my pro-choice opponent will win."
Pro-Life response: "No, you just want fewer dead babies than the other guy, but you can accept some murdered babies. I won't vote for evil by voting for the lesser of two evils. If there is not a 100% pro-life candidate on the ballot for Congress, then I won't sin by voting for any more compromisers for that office. Remember that many German churches supported the election of Hitler because he appeared to be a lesser evil than Communism."
"But if you don't vote for me, than that other wicked party will get control!"
Pro-Life response: "Well, your political party hasn't impeached bad judges, defunded Planned Parenthood, or stopped the killing. I will vote in faith and not in fear anymore."
"Your 'no-exceptions' candidate doesn't stand a chance of winning. He isn't viable!"
Pro-Life response: " Not viable! That's what they say about preborn children before they get murdered. Winning is honoring God and standing for Truth. That is more important than being elected and violating principle to do it."
"You're not being realistic."
Pro-Life response: "Reality is that over 4,000 American children get murdered daily by 'choice.' Reality is that God will destroy America unless we repent and stop the shedding of innocent blood!"
"We have to go slow and work incrementally."
Pro-Life response: "You don't regulate Auschwitz. You shut it down! These are people being murdered and I will not support any candidate that does not get serious, by impeachments, no-exceptions legislation, and endorsements.
"But if I start impeaching and bringing up the bills you want, than I'll lose my endorsement and p.a.c. money from this other 'pro-life' group.
Pro-Life response: "Wouldn't you rather be endorsed by God for obeying Truth than be judged by Him for compromising the lives of children to gain money or favor from men?"
After your Congressman ignores your correspondence or walks away from you, go recruit a real pro-life candidate to run against him.
