The need for Americans to vote pro-life on every level of government has never been more essential than now in a post-Roe environment.
I’ve often said I wouldn’t vote a dogcatcher into office unless he or she was pro-life. Why? First, we can no longer assume that even the most unsuspecting position will not in some way impact abortion. Second, every elected official climbs his or her own political ladder of success. How high they reach depends upon a multitude of factors.
An example of this is former President Barack Obama. He began as a community organizer and then ran for the Illinois State Senate. After which he set his sights on the US Senate which served as an effective catalyst for becoming President of the United States. Obama’s policies greatly damaged our nation during his two terms in the Oval Office.
State Attorneys General
After the demise of Roe v Wade, it has become apparent that lesser-observed races have significantly increased in importance to enforcing pro-life laws in many states.
Since the Dobbs ruling, a scourge of Soros-supported or Soros-style candidates for attorney general have announced they will not enforce pro-life laws if elected or re-elected. These rogue AGs are not only in blue states. This political line has been drawn in the sand in the battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin with candidates who have promised to ignore pro-life laws pitted against those who have pledged to enforce them.
It is reported there are 30 state attorney general posts up for election this year. Included in those are 12 pro-abortion incumbents. It is revealing that tens of millions of dollars will be spent on these races.
Underscoring the importance of this office, the US Supreme Court recently ruled that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron could defend the state’s pro-life legislation in court when pro-abortion Governor Andy Beshear refused to do so. House Bill 454 ends brutal live dismemberment abortions.
It’s not just attorney general races that are now on the political radar. Pro-abortion district attorneys in Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin have gone on record that they will not enforce pro-life laws. It should be noted that these states are not blue but red or purple political battlegrounds.
Mayors, City Councils, Prosecutors
In addition, pro-abortion city council members, mayors, and county prosecutors, known as the gatekeepers of the criminal justice system, have taken upon themselves which laws will be enforced or ignored. This has prompted Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain to introduce a bill in next year’s legislative session that will allow district attorneys to prosecute abortion violations even if they are outside their jurisdiction.
Rogue elected officials have planted their flags on the wrong mountain. Instead of honoring the oath they took to protect those victimized by crime, they have chosen instead to represent the criminals.
American citizens are not totally without options to respond to rogue elected officials. Pro-life Governor Ron DeSantis provided an example for others to follow. Earlier this year DeSantis signed a law ending late-term abortion after 15 weeks. The state had become the late-term abortion destination of America’s southeast.
Responding to a defiant elected official, the Governor’s office stated, “We are suspending Soros-backed 13th circuit state attorney Andrew Warren for neglecting his duties as he pledges not to uphold the laws of the state.” The Governor said, “We are not going to allow this pathogen that’s been around the country of ignoring the law. We are not going to let that get a foothold here in the state of Florida.”
The Governor’s courage aside, voters have limited options to oust rogue elected officials, so making sure we vote only for pro-life candidates at all levels of service is vitally important to saving innocent human life.
Remember the dogcatcher.
