A New Weapon in Our Fight for the Pre-born

Georgia Right to Life PAC is proud to co-sponsor a new weapon in our fight for the most vulnerable members of our society; the elderly infirm and the innocent pre-born.

It is a political fact that "all politics is local". It is a political reality that politicians never do "what you EXpect, they only do what you INspect." It is for these reasons that the Peach TEA Party has formed and registered both a federal and state Political Action Committee (PeachTEA PAC). We are linking to their site because they offer a transparent view into the political process in our state . . . while maintaining the supremecy of the right to life. Peach TEA Party is debuting  it's state of the art website Life and Liberty TRACKER.

 

Single Issue Voting -- Should you or Shouldn’t you?

Melanie Crozier

Pro-lifers are often given the bad rap of being single issue, single minded voters.  I say nothing could be farther from the truth.  Voters who respect the sanctity of life have many issues they’re equally as passionate about. 

So, how do I choose the best candidate? Since life is the paramount concern for me, if a candidate is wrong about that I immediately remove them from consideration. Why?  If we don’t have the right to life, nothing else matters, such as taxes, highways or jobs.

On the other hand, when I know that more than one candidate in a specific race has the GRTL PAC endorsement, I can then consider other issues that are also important to me, my family, and my community. In short, being pro-life is not the only reason I vote for someone.  However, I will immediately disqualify a candidate if they are on the wrong side of life issues, no matter where they stand on anything else.

 

 

GRTL PAC Applauds Congressman Broun’s Strong Pro-life Stand

U.S. Representative Paul Broun clearly showed his commitment to protect all innocent human life with his effort to remove a rape and incest exception from the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” recently approved by Congress. His attempt to persuade Republican leadership to remove the deadly language was rebuffed by the Rules Committee on the evening before the vote.

Personhood Amendment

 

"I applaud the good folks of Georgia for challenging the culture of death and championing life at all stages. The Georgia Personhood Amendment is a reflection of a growing pro-life sentiment across the country and points toward a post-Roe era. I hope that the state legislature moves quickly to pass this amendment so that it can go before the voters in Georgia." -

Tony Perkins
President, Family Research Council
 

"The Human  Life Amendment provides Georgia with the best legal means of overturning the central holding of Roe v Wade. At the very least, it ensures that Georgia immediately becomes a pro-life state the moment the shackles of Roe are broken. For too long the pro-life movement has been dominated by a strategy of “wait”-- too fearful of losing to risk winning. The adoption of this amendment will place Georgia at the forefront of the battle to restore the sanctity of innocent human life. I applaud Georgia’s pro-life citizens and their elected representatives for having the courage of their convictions."

Political Guidlines for Churches

 

DISCUSS CANDIDATES' POSITIONS

Pastors and churches are free to discuss the positions of candidate on issues-including criticizing or praising them or their positions. This is called "issue advocacy."

ENDORSE POLITICAL CANDIDATES

Pastors may personally endorse candidates for political office but may not endorse candidates on behalf of the church. A pastor's personal endorsement may be made from the pulpit if it is clear that it is his personal view and not that of the church. A pastor may allow his name to be used as a candidate's supporter in the candidate's own political advertisements. In this connection, the pastor may be identified as pastor of a particular church. Endorsement of a candidate includes any statement, which uses explicit words to expressly advocate the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate, such as "elect", "support", "defeat", or "oppose". This is called "express advocacy." A church may not engage in express advocacy, but a pastor, in his individual capacity, may.
