Unless Obama is Defeated, Your Tax Dollars Will Fund Abortions
With September nearly half over, attention has shifted to the November election.
If the 2010 election is any foretaste of what is to come this November, pro-life Americans will demonstrate that failure to uphold the deepest value on which this nation was established the equal right to life impacts candidates on election day. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/20/unless-obama-is-defeated-your-tax-dollars-will-fund-abortions/
No Issue More Important in Election 2012 Than Pro-Life
Father Frank Pavone, the head of the Catholic pro-life group Priests for Life, says there is no issue more important in the 2012 elections than the pro-life issues. Because abortion is a life or death decision that affects millions of people every year, Pavone ranks it at the top.
The issue that matters most to our nation s survival the end of abortion is the one issue few candidates are willing to talk about, he says. And because they are, we must keep the spotlight shining on this fundamental issue. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/20/no-issue-more-important-in-election-2012-than-pro-life/

Jessica Alba, Natalie Portman Pledge Allegiance to Obama, Abortion
The Obama re-election campaign has a new For All campaign in which it is tapping celebrities to prop up the pro-abortion president s re-election effort. Actresses Jessica Alba and Natalie Portman have stepped up to show their support for Obama, and abortion.
The campaign has Obama supporters posting photos online with their hands over their hearts exploiting the Pledge of Allegiance posture as a way to pledge support for Obama. But the two Hollywood stars take the pledge a step further by putting pro-abortion slogans on their hands, as evidenced by the pictures. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/20/jessica-alba-natalie-portman-pledge-allegiance-to-obama-abortion/
