Bush Compromises On Abortion While Peroutka Stands Firm
One of Satan’s greatest lies is that abortion is permissible as long as society condones it. Worse still, “conservative” Christians stand behind and support this compromise. “Let no man deceive you,” says the Word of God. We are to love the sinner but abhor the evil of abortion and have no part in it.
Constitution Party of Virginia chairman Howard Phillips has stated his position on abortion as follows (from a speech he gave on September 4, 1999 at the Presidential Nominating Convention of the Constitution Party in St. Louis, Missouri):
2004 Constitution Party presidential candidate Michael Peroutka is just as clear in his opposition to abortion:
Abortion is also a part of the attack on the family. Our current President has failed to lead on this premier moral issue of our time – which is the systematic slaughter of innocent, defenseless, unborn children in the womb.
For example, he has
approved legislation to send additional scores of millions of tax dollars
to Planned Parenthood and other groups which promote additional
Phillips and Peroutka are right. Instead of becoming tolerant and indulgent toward abortion, we need a holy hatred and abhorrence of it—and government policies that represent our convictions.
Tragically, our “pro-life” president has been publicly advocating and raising money for the re-election of pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Republicans. The most recent example is his stumping for Republican Senator Arlen Specter, who narrowly defeated his staunchly pro-life opponent, Pat Toomey, in the Pennsylvania Republican primaries this week. I find it disturbing that the same president who delights in denouncing activist courts has rallied behind a man who wholeheartedly supports the most activist court decision in our nation’s history, namely the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion and has destroyed the lives of 43 million innocent unborn children in America.
My friends, this election I believe we are confronted with a real choice. We can choose a politician who will compromise his convictions in order to gain political advantage, or we can choose a man who will use every legal means in his power to end once and for all the national scourge of abortion. We need not join the compromising multitude, wringing our hands and wondering what we should do. God has told us what He expects of us, and we are not left without chart or compass.
Now is the time to obey our consciences and elect the only candidate who is 100% pro-life, Michael Anthony Peroutka.
