CFL would like to thank our good friend Kenneth Strawn for his following contribution.
Political involvement is a necessity for those who value life. It is imperative that elected officials and justices appointed to serve the courts understand and act upon the tenant that the right to life must be preserved, and that without this fundamental right, all others are meaningless.
The U.S. Senate confirmations of many qualified justices nominated by the President continue to be obstructed by a pro-abortion minority. We must call on our legislators to demand a full up-or-down vote by the full senate of these nominees. An extensive searchable database of contact information for U.S. Senators and Representatives, state legislators, governors, and local officials is available at the National Right to Life Committee - Legislative Action Center website. This website also has a wealth of information on current pro-life legislation.
As we exercise our civic duty to vote, it is a necessity to learn each candidate’s stand and track record on life issues, particularly abortion and euthanasia. It is important to recognize that the abortion and euthanasia attack the most innocent human life and are inherently evil. These issues must take precedence over all others, even over war and capital punishment, which may be necessary in certain circumstances for the protection of human life. Along with the duty to vote comes a responsibility to hold our elected officials accountable during their terms in office, especially if they have pledged to uphold life but their actions tell otherwise.
