Challenges Ahead for Pro-Life Americans

Pro-Life Missourians fought the good fight and turned out in record numbers yesterday. While we were successful in winning the victory for John McCain in Missouri, the country chose Barack Obama, the most anti-life candidate to ever run for President.

"President-elect Obama has promised to advocate for taxpayer funding of abortions, make detrimental Supreme Court appointments and promote 'The Freedom of Choice Act,” which would overturn pro-life laws nationwide. It is likely that President Obama will also quickly overturn the Mexico City Policy, which prevents taxpayer funding of groups that engage in performing or promoting abortions in other nations," said MRL President Pam Fichter.

"While this is all grim news for the pro-life movement, and most tragically for unborn babies and their mothers, we have been in similar situations before." said Fichter. “As in the past, we will pull together, strengthen our resolve and work to ensure that the Obama administration is not successful in these endeavors. We call upon everyone who believes in the sanctity of human life to join us in this effort."

“We are pleased that over 70% of our endorsed candidates were victorious, including Blaine Luetkemeyer who won his race to replace Kenny Hulshof in the ninth district and will join other pro-life Missourians in the U.S. House of Representatives. Many pro-life stalwarts in the Missouri legislature were also victorious. Their leadership and courage will certainly be tested in the coming years, as they work with Governor Nixon, who supports abortion on demand, human cloning, embryonic stem cell research, and taxpayer funding of abortions through family planning appropriations. We look forward to working with and for all pro-life legislators in any way we can. We must persevere and dedicate ourselves to be the voice of the most vulnerable in society,” continued Fichter.
