A vote for President Bush in November is a vote to uphold the right to life. Americans who respect the right to life for unborn children cannot fail to note that President Bush and his opponent, Senator John Kerry, hold completely opposite views on this fundamental issue.

Senator Kerry alleges that he is personally opposed to abortion, and claims membership in the Catholic Church, which has always held that human life is sacred from conception to natural death. However, Senator Kerry's congressional record reveals that he votes pro-abortion 100% of the time. What's more, Senator Kerry promotes embryonic stem cell research which entails harvesting stem cells from human embryos which researchers later throw away as garbage. Senator Kerry embraces the Catholic faith with one hand, but votes with the other hand against the pro-life beliefs of his faith! By definition, a person who says he or she believes in something but acts in the opposite manner is a hypocrite.

President Bush, by contrast, has defended the right to life for helpless unborn children from the first day of his presidency when he reinstated the Mexico City Policy which bans funding to overseas abortion providers. He reduced funding to the United Nations Population Fund which funds overseas abortion providers, opposed human cloning, limited funding for embryonic stem cell research, and signed into law the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. John Kerry opposes President Bush on each of these policies, and so opposes the pro-life belief of the Christian faith he professes and the Church denomination in which he claims membership.

A vote for President Bush in November is a vote to preserve the sanctity of human life. A vote for Senator John Kerry is a vote to share in the moral responsibility for the legalized slaughter of the smallest, most vulnerable human persons.
