How do you know when an election is close? When articles and letters begin appearing The Star proclaiming how “pro-life” their particular party is.
The common theme is a belief that all pro-life issues are equal, when nothing could be further from the truth. The key word in pro-life is life, the opposite of which is death. When people support abortion or euthanasia, they cannot call themselves pro-life.
As a society, we are guilty of the worst genocide in history. Over 45 million have been killed by abortion, many times more than Hitler killed in the Holocaust.
All of the other pro-life issues are important but pale in comparison to the slaughter of the innocent children. That is why when I vote I first consider the candidate’s position on abortion, euthanasia, gay marriage, human cloning and embryonic stem-cell research (don’t be fooled by the Missouri amendment — it is human cloning in sheep’s clothing).
