Irrevocable Choice

Irrevocable Choice is a blog about life issues. Those in favor of legalized abortion often use the word "choice." Once completed, the "choice" to destroy a human life either via abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research is IRREVOCABLE. It is PERMANENT. It can NEVER be undone. The innocent life can NEVER be restored.

Congressional Republican "Leadership" Not Prolife

The Congressional Republican "leadership" closed out the 109th Congress last week. On December 12th, a bill which would have defined unborn children as persons was scheduled for debate. Had this bill passed, it would have crushed Roe v. Wade. It would have also wiped out states' ability to allow abortion. (Remember, if Roe v. Wade goes down in court, states can still legalize abortion.) Congress closed before debating this bill.

Of course, it's obvious Republicans need child sacrifice to continue because they can tell voters they are "prolife" and need their votes to do something about abortion. They lose prolife voters if abortion ever became illegal again.

Congresspeople get a six figure salary and get to vote on their own raises. Needless to say, they ALWAYS vote themselves a raise. They get far more vacations than the average peons get. They decided to stop working for the American people early in December. There are plenty of days left in December and plenty of work left to do. But the overpaid, underworked "leaders" chose to give themselves at least three weeks of vacation. Their lack of action ensures child slaughter continues in America.

I am a registered Republican for some strange reason. I'm not sure how much longer I will keep that registration. I once thought the party was "prolife." That's just something they say to collect votes from prolifers, in my opinion. I was upset at the Democratic win this November. But the complacent and useless Republican "leadership" deserved to lose its status. This is not the party of Abraham Lincoln or even the party of Ronald Reagan in my opinion.

The Republican Party needs to get rid of the liberalism and go back to a strictly conservative focus. They lost because the "values voters" --- who they took for granted --- stayed home this election day. Also, many of the Republicans who lost were liberals who were basically Democrats in my opinion. Lincoln Chafee is a good example.
