Nobody can deny it: politics are messy. Why get involved, when the stakes for upsetting people are so high? Well, the stakes of failing to get prolife legislation passed means missed opportunities to save lives. There are no higher stakes. Prolife issues are not like taxes, or regulations, or almost every other political issue: people live or die when faced with abortion, infanticide, or euthanasia. There is no alternative option.
In every election, voters face these life or death issues. Candidates at every level can impact prolife issues. Certainly at the highest levels, making the right choice means a quicker end to Roe v. Wade, saving potentially millions of lives.
If we don’t start with Life at the ballot box, we can never restore legal protection for every person.
VOTING PROLIFE SAVES BABIES.
Since 1987, abortions are down 45.8% in Michigan. Elective tax-funded abortions were banned in Michigan in 1988. The next year abortions dropped by 10,190 and tens of thousands of lives have been saved since then.
VOTING PROLIFE PROTECTS WOMEN.
Since 2011, 15 abortion clinics have closed in Michigan, most for failing to meet basic sanitation and safety standards. Prolife legislators revised state health and safety regulations for abortion clinics in 2012, which means that the abortion industry no longer gets a free pass in Michigan.
VOTING PROLIFE PROTECTS YOU.
In 2013, Michigan citizens initiated legislation to stop their tax dollars from paying for abortion insurance in Obamacare and prolife legislators voted it into law.
VOTING PROLIFE COULD MEAN REAL CHANGE.
Roe vs. Wade could be overturned. Late-term abortions could be banned. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, could stop receiving hundreds of millions of taxpayer funds. Prolife justices could be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The choice is yours. Will you vote prolife?
