I will use the bully pulpit of the White House to encourage Congress to pass Congressman Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act which would do two things. Number one it would identify every unborn child as being a person under our laws. Number two, it would remove abortion from the jurisdiction of the court under article 3 section 2 of the Constitution. As President, I will do what the Republicans have not been willing to do. I will put an end to abortion on demand.
I have still not decided what I am going to do this November, however. To say that this is a less than ideal situation we are in, as far as presidential candidates is concerned, is an understatement. It just plain sucks. I was all prepared to “throw away” my vote on a third party candidate in the event of a Hillary-Giuliani match up. But, as bad as it is, our current situation does not quite have me convinced to do so…yet. Jay perfectly explains the thoughts I hate that I am thinking:
IF I decide to hold my nose and pull the lever for John McCain this November – and that’s a VERY BIG IF – it wil ONLY be because I find the prospect of a President Obama “sign[ing] the FOCA, repeal[ing] the DOMA, repeal[ing] the Hyde Amendment, end[ing] the Mexico City policy, fund[ing] abortions at the federal level through Medicare, on military bases, through the UN, [etc.]” to be untenable.
It WON’T be because I’m foolish enough to believe that John McCain will nominate another Roberts or Alito to the Court (he won’t) or will expend one ounce of effort or political capital to advance the cause of protecting the unborn (again, he won’t). A vote for McCain is simply a vote to minimize the damage that will be done to the pro-life cause should Obama be elected.
I’m really going to have to seek advice from my spiritual director on this one.
“Most merciful Jesus, I beseech You through the intercession of Your dearest Mother who nurtured You from childhood, bless my native land. I beg You, Jesus, look not on our sins, but on the tears of little children, on the hunger and cold they suffer. Jesus, for the sake of these innocent ones, grant me the grace that I am asking of You for my country.” ~ from St. Faustina’s Diary
