This summer, California ProLife sent key officers to the Republican Platform Drafting Committee. They opposed it and reported back on the pending proposal to re-craft and ‘streamline’ the Platform.
We at California ProLife immediately alerted pro-lifers through our e-mail network. Many of you have responded, and for that we are very grateful. Many of you have been in direct communication with members. California ProLife Council has as well, and in addition sent each member a copy of Ronald Reagan’s book, Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation.
Now an update regarding the current status: The full committee will meet at the end of this week-end’s Convention. This may be a positive thing… for the time being. Pro-life Assemblyman Dan Logue, who chairs the committee, believes the votes are there to maintain the current platform. As the vote will take place AFTER the full convention the pro-abortion forces will not be able to appeal the decision and then attempt to bring a resolution to the floor.
But what this means is that there will very likely be a full floor-vote at the next State Republican Convention in Burlingame. So the question remains: Will the state Republican party follow the example of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Ronald Reagan? We will see then.
Thank YOU for standing strong for Life!
