In The Holy Bible a.k.a. BASIC INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE LEAVING EARTH, Proverbs 22: 6 tells us to, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." It is in this vein of thought that Christians should begin exploring what the stances on issues of the different candidates for President of the United States are. As Reverend Samuel Rodriguez said at the Under God Indivisible event at High Point Church on July 27, 2012 in
Arlington, TX, "When we enter the voting booth, we shouldn't follow the way of the donkey, nor of the way of the elephant, but the WAY OF THE LAMB!" Therefore, it would follow that the first and foremost issue that all Christians should examine when voting for the person who will take the position of leader of the most influential nation in the world should be whether that leader protects the most precious gift that God has to give: LIFE in the form of a child.
The stances and records of the different presidential candidates on protecting the lives of the unborn are as follows:
Barack Obama: Billy Hallowell at TheBlaze.com reports that Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List said of President Obama, "President Obama's record on abortion is not just limited to his four votes to deny rights to abortion survivors but spans to his recent heartless refusal to support bans on sex-selection and late term abortions."
Mitt Romney: Governor Romney states that he is pro-life, but as recently as 2006 he is on record as having signed RomneyCare into law. It allowed the use of taxpayer funds even for the use of elective abortions. Even worse, according to prolifeprofiles.com as recently as September 5, 2011 - he rejected 14th Amendment protection for unborn children. At the Palmetto Freedom Forum on September 5, 2011, Mitt Romney was asked if he would support legislation to guarantee fourteenth amendment protection for unborn children. His answer was "That's not something I would precipitate."
Tom Hoefling: According to AmericasPartyNews.com, this is Tom Hoeflings official position on the protection of the unborn: "All officers of government in this country, in every branch, at every level, have as the first obligation of their sacred oath the protection of all innocent lives within their jurisdiction. Should I be elected to the office of President of the United States, I will keep my oath. Justice Blackmun, in Roe vs. Wade, admitted that 'of course' the child in the womb is protected by the Fourteenth Amendment, if they are a person. Since it is self-evident that they are a person, my first act as President, after having sworn the oath, will be to publish a presidential finding to that effect. My second act will be to ask for the resignation of anyone in the executive branch who will not act accordingly. My third act will be to order the closing of every abortion facility in the country, as per the explicit, imperative requirement of the Supreme Law of the Land.No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law. No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Gary Johnson: According to http://2012.presidential-candidates.org, Johnson is pro-choice, although he is opposed to late-term abortions.
If one indeed were to do what Reverend Steven Rodriguez suggested and follow the agenda of "The Lamb", on this issue, the clear-cut choice is Tom Hoefling.
