Your Guide to Voting Against Abortion & for LIFE

September 30, 2016


This November,  your votes for pro-life candidates can make all the difference both in Indiana and across the U.S., because the candidates that you vote for either uphold and protect Life or undermine and destroy Life.

When you vote for Pro-Life candidates, you protect babies, you protect women, and your Pro-Life vote protects you from being forced to participate in abortions in your work.

This election could mean real fundamental changes in our laws and culture – Life Changing!

Pro-Life Candidates Pledge to:

  • Pro-Life Candidates will appoint judges to the Supreme Court who will uphold the sanctity of human life.  An aging U.S. Supreme Court who will uphold the sanctity of human life.  An aging U.S. Supreme Court makes overturning Roe v. Wade within our grasp.  This would send the issue of abortion back to the individual states.
  • Pro-Life Candidates will make sure that the Hyde Amendment remains the law of the land.  The Hyde Amendment, which restricts taxpayer funding of abortion through the Medicaid program, has been in the news a lot because the abortion industry wants it gone.  Over a million Americans owe their lives to it.
  • Pro-Life Candidates will defund Planned Parenthood forever!  America’s largest provider and promoter of abortions will stop receiving hundreds of MILLIONS of taxpayer funds.
  • Pro-Life Candidates will sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Pro-Abortion Candidates Pledge to:

  • Pro-Abortion Candidates want to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which saved 1 Million Lives of Babies since 1976.  Without the Hyde Amendment, one in nine children born through Medicaid would have died from abortion.
  • Pro-Abortion candidates want YOU to pay for Abortions with Your Tax $$$$.
  • Pro-Abortion candidates want YOU to be forced to change your religious views to accommodate abortions.

We hope and pray Indiana voters will vote to save the lives of babies.

Talk to your friends and family and urge them to vote for Pro-Life candidates!

Every year, another million lives are claimed by abortion, making it the leading cause of death in America if we counted it.  An aging U.S. Supreme Court makes overturning Roe v. Wade within our grasp.  The opposite could happen; reinforcing Roe v. Wade for decades at the cost of tens of millions more lives if pro-abortion candidates are elected.

The choice is in our hands.  Let’s elect Pro-Life Candidates who will work for us, not kill us.

This 2016 Voters Guide is the go-to source for Hoosiers who believe in the sanctity of human life.
