California ProLife Council is a non-sectarian and non-partisan organization. That being said, in the current political environment, the stated policies of the two dominant political parties are inescapable.
The Republican Party has a solid pro-life platform, and in addition to protecting the unborn, sees a need to assertively protect the elderly and medically vulnerable.
The Democrat Party is committed to unlimited abortion funded by the government, and to the voluntary euthanizing of vulnerable patients.
In this important election year, we would be remiss to not point out this clear and bright distinction.
Dear Friend of Life,
The Republican party was founded for the specific purpose of ensuring that the dignity of the human person was protected in the law and in public policy. This was unlike the rest of the inchoate and at times confused abolitionist movement, which employed many non-policy related efforts from Harper’s Ferry to the Underground Railroad to address slavery.
Lincoln was VERY clear that the Republican Party was dedicated to, and in fact designed to use the civic process to change the policies that many others complained of and lashed out against. Lincoln, in the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates, made clear that the Republican Party was unique in its anti-slavery efforts, and that unlike some abolitionists, Republicans were dedicated to using the civic process to the utmost, as both the principle tool and the ultimate tool for ending slavery.
Lincoln was right to focus the concern of America on the immediate electoral and policy opportunities at hand in order to bring an end to slavery. Employing these civic avenues is still our greatest hope for bringing an end to the legalized culture of Death, and the Republican Party remains our most effective tool to do so.
