Silent No More

I believe that Christians face a unique opportunity to stand up and be counted this election cycle. I think the president did a wonderful job last week defining clearly his position on the protection of life. We also got a pretty clear picture of where his opponent stands.

Locally, the contrast is equally defined. Rick Boucher's voting record is in lock-step with Planned Parenthood and militant pro-abortion group NARAL. Today, Kevin Triplett received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee.

To make the choice clearer for us husband saw a bumper sticker that said "Stop Killing Babies, Stop Rick Boucher."

First, let me say, that I contacted Boucher's office by e-mail on Sept. 21st at 5:44 and asked what the Congressman's stand was on women's reproductive rights. I received a response at 5:57 asking for my home address. By 6:01, I had responded with that information.....and guess what??? I haven't heard another peep from Boucher's office despite follow up e-mails.

I guess, though, that his voting record speaks for itself.
  • He voted against the ban on partial birth abortions.
  • He thinks that minors should have the right to an abortion without parental consent (btw...we recently had the girls' ears pierced which required that their dad show i.d. and fill out a fairly lengthy release).
  • He thinks that your tax dollars should pay for:

abortion on demand for low-income women

abortion on demand for women living in more than 150 other countries

abortion on demand for military personnel living overseas

abortion on demand for women in federal prisons

  • He voted against HR 1997 ...more commonly known as Laci and Connor's Law...which would make it an offense to kill an unborn child during an act of violence against the mother

No wonder he got $10,000 support from militant Pro-Abortion group NARAL. Please tell your family and friends who supports Boucher and why...we cannot continue to be silent. It's time we had a congressman who represents the values of our district rather than pandering to special interest groups.

And...if you have even a little cash to spare (minimum on-line donation is $10) go to Triplett's website and donate.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
