Dear Fellow American,
This is the most important election you have ever voted in. There are a lot of issues on the table. The economy. The war. Taxes. Should they be lowered or should they stay the same? Wealth. Should it continue to be a reward for hard work, education, perseverance and determination? Or should we spread it around?
Those are good questions. Perhaps they’re the questions that have prevented you from making a decision. Whatever the case, I’m going to pose a question for you right now that’s going to take the “un” off of the decision that you need to make. A question for which there is no gray area. A question that will catapult you on one side of the fence or the other.
Which is more important to you: life or your wallet?
Yes, that is the real question at stake in this election. But let’s be fair. Let’s look at both sides of the coin. When I voted, I didn’t know what all of the Amendments and Referendums meant — so I researched them. I researched the pros and the cons for each one and then I made my decision.
Argument from those in favor of voting for their wallet:
- Senator Obama promises tax cuts for 95% of Americans. Cutting taxes will reduce the financial strain on working families, families facing foreclosure, families who have a parent who has lost a job.
- One of the greatest burdens on American families is a stack of medical bills incurred from a family member with a major illness. Senator Obama promises healthcare for all Americans, whereas right now, certain families are uninsurable.
- Senator Obama promises to place a greater tax on the rich, taking a portion of their money to account for others who are unable to even put food on the table.
Argument from those in favor of voting for the protection of life:
- Senator McCain believes that life begins at conception.
Of the 200,000,000 sperm that try to penetrate the mother’s egg cell, only one succeeds. At that very moment, a new and unique individual is formed. All of the inherited features of this new person are already set – whether it’s a boy or girl, the color of the eyes, the color of the hair, the dimples of the cheeks and the cleft of the chin. He or she is smaller than a grain of sugar, but the instructions are present for all that this person will ever become. The first cell soon divides in two. Each of these new cells divides again and again as they travel toward the womb in search of a protected place to grow.
- In the United States it is legal to abort a baby up until the day of birth. In the next presidential term, at least two to three Supreme Court Justices will retire and new justices will be appointed by the President. Senator McCain plans to appoint justices that are Pro-Life, in hopes that Roe vs. Wade, a law that has cost 50 million lives, will finally be overturned.
- In a Partial Birth Abortion (D and X procedure) babies are “partially aborted” so the head is still in the cervix but the body is out. While in this position the live baby is still considered a “non-human” and has no protection under the law. The live baby’s brains are sucked out after being crushed by blunt instruments. Organs are harvested and sold to “researchers”. The baby receives no anesthesia and is alive until killed by the doctor. Senator Obama supports laws that would revoke a baby’s rights, in the case that he or she is accidentally born during a partial birth abortion, allowing that baby to still be put to death. The list of laws that Senator Obama supports that promote the aborting of innocent lives is endless. He plans to make abortions easier and to use government funding to back them.
- Every day in America over 3,000 babies die painful deaths by suction abortion, dismemberment, being torn limb from limb, prostaglandin hormones and now by being brutally killed seconds before delivery.
- Since Roe vs. Wade, nearly 50 million babies have been aborted. If Senator Obama becomes President, he will elect pro-abortion Supreme Court Justices, which will increase that number.
- Nearly all abortions are done for reasons of convenience, not for any medical or physical reason.
What’s more important? 95% of Americans receiving a tax break — or 50 millions lives, defenseless lives, voiceless lives, lives that are planned from the moment of conception being spared from murder? But I just lost my job. What’s John McCain going to do about that, you ask. I just lost my job too. Why? Because of the bad economy. But I would give a lot more than a job, my wallet, the plummeting of my bank account to ensure that tomorrow, 3,000 tiny little lives don’t have to aborted (brutally killed).
Each and every one of us will stand before God on judgment day to give an account of every decision — good or bad — that we have ever made. In America, we are blessed to have a political voice. On November 4th, your vote will either be for or against the ending of abortion.
What’s more important — precious lives or your wallet? As I said, there is no gray area in this question. There is no maybe. There is no undecided. Ignorance may be bliss, but you are no longer ignorant. You know the facts. You know what’s at stake. So what’s it going to be?
