PRO-LIFE CANDIDATES WIN IN COLORADO AND MICHIGAN
Liberal Republican Money Proves No Match for Pro-Life Values
Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, who represents Colorado's 4th District, is a staunch friend of the cause of life. When she endorsed Doug Lamborn, she said, "Quite simply, Senator Lamborn is our most outstanding conservative leader in the Colorado Legislature. America needs Doug Lamborn in Congress."
Both Doug Lamborn and Tim Walberg earned the endorsement of RNC/Life PAC and Eagle Forum PAC, and the Club for Growth. The big losers are the financial backers of the IMP (It's My Party Too) PAC headed by former Governor of New Jersey Christine Todd Whitman. Whitman, who was arguably the most pro-abortion Governor in America at the time she was in office, formed the PAC in order to back pro-abortion Republican candidates. In both of the races mentioned above, IMP PAC supported the loser.
Mrs. Whitman just doesn't get it. Even after 33 years of wholesale abortion-on-demand, no matter how much money she pours into a race, a candidate who supports the dirty business of killing babies is a hard sell.
A trigger law would serve to prevent costly litigation and delays in implementation of a pro-life environment in Texas. Upon reversal of Roe, the Patrick measure would automatically "trigger" an abortion ban. "When the Supreme Court puts a stop to the madness, I want Texas to be a state that protects life. With a Texas trigger law, we can save lives immediately," Mr. Patrick said. Pro-life Texans are eager to promote the law.
Seven other states including Louisiana, South Dakota, North Dakota, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois have passed trigger laws. "The passage of a trigger law in Louisiana gives us an expectation of success in Texas," Mr. Patrick remarked. Republicans and Democrats in the Louisiana Legislature worked together to ensure passage (approved unanimously in the Louisiana Senate), and the law was signed by Democrat Governor Kathleen Blanco, on June 17, 2006. "If the Louisiana Legislature can pass a trigger law, surely Texas can," he said. (Texas Insider.org, 8/8/06)
