The 2012 Presidential Election: Life and Death

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
It is clear to most Americans where President Obama stands on the issue of life---and abortion.

His words have been voluminous about the importance of life, while his actions give a very clear message: "Increase funding to abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood."

If you are pro-abortion, President Obama is your guy.

But how do the Republican Presidential candidates stand on abortion?

LIFENEWS has researched the position of each GOP candidate. This is what they found:

Michele Bachmann:

Ron Paul:

Rick Perry:

Mitt Romney:

The presidential election next year has the power to shape the future of abortion for decades -- as the next president may have Supreme Court appointments who could determine the future of Roe and the status of legal abortions for many years. With a tenuous pro-abortion majority on the high court now, a pro-life president gives unborn children real hope for change.

Thank you Steve Ertelt and LIFENEWS.

  1. Interesting development here in Oregon.

    The Oregon GOP just removed the anti-gay language from its platform for 2012.

    In 2004 they used an anti gay marriage measure to rally the troops and get out the vote. Now in 2012 they're running away from the issue.

    It looks like the tide has turned and that the Oregon GOP has just formally acknowledged it.

  2. The other day I was out for a walk and saw that the sun was shining and the birds were singing even though there may be over a million abortions this year in the U.S. alone.

    I wonder if Adolf Hitler was taking in the beauty of God's creation up until the day his reign came to an end.

    Now we have so many products that are sold under an American name and address that are made somewhere else and many seem to think that's a good thing for America.

    I just bought a gallon of water the other day at the same location I used to buy a few gallons of premium gas. That was about 10 years ago. It seemed like it was the price that reminded me of that.

    My wages are about back to what they were 10 years ago too, but God is giving me all I need.

    But now there is a new jobs deal the president had in his hand. I just saw it on the news the other day. The newsman said that taxes on the richer class was going to pay for it.

    The problem seems to be that government thinks it can be the solution to our problems like president Regan said.

    I wonder what Eve was thinking just before she got deceived in the garden. I suppose the sun was shining and the birds were singing.

    May God keep America alive in Christ Jesus regardless of all that seems to be trying to kill it.

    It's foundations seem to be weakening fast.

    But God has plans to prosper us. If only we knew what they are... I don't think his plans includes the promotion of abortions because the Bible says that children are the Lord's inheritance.

    Maybe the people who run the nation's government should show a little more care for what God's riches are.

  3. Reagan, Ronald Wilson
    Ronald Reagan was the 40th president of the United States of America (from 1981 to 1989);

    Bush, George H. W.
    George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924 - ) was the 41st President of the United States of America. He was President from 1989 until 1993;
    Clinton, William J.

    William (Bill) Jefferson Clinton (1946- ) was the 42nd President of the United States. (Clinton served from 1993 to 2001).

    Bush, George W.
    George Walker Bush He became President on January 20, 2001.
    Since 1980 Bill Clinton was the only Democrat president . He was the only President that balanced the budget.

    If the other presidents ,that were Republican , knew what they were doing
    then why isn't manufacturing high , unemployment low
    and the budget balanced, now in this country?

    The proof of the right ideology is success not failure.

    The ideology Reaganomics ,that the GOP follows , has failed.

    The proof is that right now manufacturing is down and unemployment is low.

  4. When George Bush was president (about ten years ago) premium gas was $1.38.90 a gallon. Now water on the same block is selling for $1.39 for a one gallon jug.

    I wonder if those that make the jobs bills have their 401 K's in the markets that have American names and addresses but have their products made somewhere else.

    Right now I'm an unemployed worker and don't have a 401K so I don't care about the stock markets doing well while so many Americans are out of work.

    But marrying gays and killing babies is still no way to run a nation, state, or anything else.

    What are people saying about God when they promote that stuff? They can't be promoting that stuff and be saying anything good about God at the same time can they?

    I wonder what God is saying about America right now in heaven. I wonder if his angels are saying much about it.

    I wonder how America looks right now from heaven's perspective.

  5. The Oregon GOP is deceived by thinking that pandering to deviant behavior will get them somewhere politically. That's why the GOP is rapidly fading as a political party. Their moral compass is out of whack!!!!

  6. People that are hungry don't care
    about the abortion and homosexual issues . Put food in their bellies and clothes on their backs and then they will have the time to support you and your issues.
