Oops, spoke too fast. Found some mean, nasty stuff on their website:
Planned Parenthood is one of the most powerful and insidious organizations active on the American scene today. In this expose, George Grant shows that the legacy of Planned Parenthood have been racism, sexual abuse, murder, and the general corruption of the church, society, civil government, and the media. The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, is regarded as a saint by the pro-death forces in America but Grant shows that in reality she was anything but a clean person. She was a racist who wanted to cut down the birth rates of minority groups. This is the book on the abortion holocaust in American today.
Oh, well I stand corrected: Please select read more to see more stuff written about how Choice foes can win elections (this link was found on The Florida Right To Life, Inc. site):
What this is, it took me awhile to figure it out, they are saying to the Right to Life/Anti Choice activists, if you do these things the CHOICE candidate will win. The following is their recipe for failure by Anti Choice activists:
1 Fall in love with yourcandidate
We encourage pro-lifers to get
involved in campaigns. Their active
participation and volunteer activities
can help a pro-life candidate build a
strong campaign. It also puts the pro-
lifer in contact with the candidate so
that if he/she wins, a relationship can
be built and strengthened.
Too often pro-lifers get so excited about their candidate
that if he/she loses to another pro-life candidate (especially
in a primary), the pro-life grassroots person becomes like
the child who lost a game – he takes his toys and goes home.
He doesn’t support the pro-life candidate who won and
won’t volunteer in the campaign or work to get others to
vote for that candidate. Pro-life candidates need the active
support of all pro-lifers and, all too often, without that full
support, a pro-abortion candidate wins.
Believe that your candidate
is the only “real” pro-life
candidate in the race
and bash other pro-life
In a primary where there are
several pro-life candidates, pro-life
individuals select the candidate they
think is best. Then, unfortunately, some
pro-lifers attack other pro-life candidates as not being “pro-
If, for example, another candidate has a 20-year pro-life
voting record, they pick out the one or two votes that he
didn’t vote right on and attack him as not being really pro-
life. By doing this, the pro-lifer demoralizes other pro-lifers
and weakens enthusiasm for the pro-life candidate who does
win the primary. The pro-abortion candidate will, of course,
take advantage of this.
Because some pro-lifers have attacked the successful
pro-life candidate, the pro-abortion candidate will use that
in pro-life circles to hold down support for his opponent.
Ironically, at the same time, the pro-abortion candidate is
going to other voters, attacking the pro-life candidate as a
“radical pro-life extremist.”
Support a really nice candidate
who is pro-life but has no
chance of winning
Millions of unborn children’s lives are
at stake. That’s why the viability of a
candidate must be considered when we
decide who to vote for. There are some
wonderful pro-lifers who may even be
active in our chapters, who decide to run
However, if they can’t gain enough support to be a
they need to be encouraged to step aside
for a candidate who can actually win and take action to
protect unborn children.
Expect the candidate to
sound like a Right to Life
People who are not directly involved
in the pro-life movement are not going
to be as articulate or well-versed on all
the pro-life issues. They may not know
about the abortifacient properties of
RU 486 or understand the ins and outs
of the Mexico City Policy.
Unless there has been some prior discussion with active
pro-lifers, some candidates may not realize that there are
certain “code words” that are interpreted differently by the
pro-life community. Just because the wrong word comes out
of his/her mouth doesn’t necessarily make the candidate a
Sometimes a truly pro-life candidate can be tripped up
by the media, confused, ill-informed, misquoted, or quoted
out of context. Give him a chance to explain what he really
Many candidates are against abortion because they have
a religious background that tells them abortion is wrong, or
they have a natural instinct that wants to protect the babies.
They will do what’s right when they’re elected, but that
doesn’t mean they will be comfortable or articulate talking
about the killing of unborn babies.
Remember, words are
nice, action is better.
Expect the candidate to
always make abortion the
major issue in the campaign
A November 2008 post-election poll
by The Polling Company
TM found that
34% of voters said abortion affected
the way that they voted. Of those,
25% said they voted for the pro-life
candidate and 9% said they voted for
candidates who favored abortion.
While it is a distinct advantage for candidates to be
pro-life and does make a difference in the outcome of an
election, it also means that 66% of the voters had other
issues that were more important to them. In order to win, a
candidate has to focus on many issues that will appeal to a
broad variety of voters.
It is the job of the right to life movement to inform the pro-
life community about the candidate’s position on abortion. It
is the candidate’s job to reach a cross-section of voters on a
broad range of issues.
When abortion is discussed in the campaign, the candidate
must clearly and directly articulate his/her pro-life position.
However, to expect the candidate to always make abortion
the major issue in the campaign can be a sure way to lose
Vote for a third-party or
independent candidate who
has no chance of winning.
When a general election is
between a pro-life candidate and a
pro-abortion candidate representing
established parties, there will be times
when a third-party or independent
candidate will get into the race,
claiming to be the “real” pro-lifer. He will attack the pro-life
candidate who has a real chance of winning and get other
pro-lifers to do the same.
This is a sure strategy to elect the pro-abortion candidate.
Pro-lifers who support the third-party or independent
candidate, to the detriment of the pro-life candidate who
could win, may feel like they have not compromised their
principles – but if they succeed in indirectly helping to elect
a candidate who will allow the killing of unborn babies to
continue, they have compromised away something far more
important – children’s lives.
