The Republican Party was founded on the principle that no human being should be considered the property of another.

California Republicans Attempt Comeback with Female CEOs
At a time when Republican voter registration in California continues to drop, RINO (Republican in Name Only) Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is completing his second and final term in office. So far, on the Democrat side, state Attorney General Jerry Brown and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom are leading polls among candidates for Governor.
In the Senate, ultra-liberal Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer is up for re-election, and given the unrest in the country caused by the Obama administration's efforts to re-make our country's social and economic fabric, she has written in a fund-raising letter that, "We've got our work cut out for us."
Meg Whitman, former eBay CEO, has tossed her hat into the ring to succeed Governor Schwarzenegger. At this point, the 53-year-old Ms. Whitman is leading her two main challengers, state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner and former U.S. Rep. Tom Campbell.
So far, the most prominent Republican name in the 2010 Senate race is that of Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co.
Both women have the potential to raise far more money than their opponents. California is in dire economic difficulty. California Chamber of Commerce president Allan Zaremberg says, "The bottom line for the voters is the economy and jobs." "Our goal is to make that the No.1 issue for the candidates just as it is for the voters." (The Wall Street Journal, 8/22/09)
Both Whitman and Fiorina are pro-choice and considered to be "social moderates." The question is can these women win their respective Primary races in a Party that remains conservative on social and pro-life issues? And, if they do, will General Election voters, who are trending toward more and more government dependency and, seeing no difference between them and their Democrat opponents on social issues, vote for them, or will they simply return to their comfort zone and re-elect Boxer and return the Governor's mansion to the Democrats?
When Texas Delegates assemble at the Republican National Convention in 2012, will a significant majority of them be supporters of the pro-life plank in the Republican National Platform?
And, who will lead the delegation? Will the current incumbent Governor Rick Perry who, over the years, has steadfastly supported the pro-life plank? Or, will it be his challenger in the 2010 Governor's race, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, who prior to the 1996 national convention said that she supported a re-write of the plank's endorsement of a human life amendment to the U.S. Constitution?
Texas Republican Primary voters should give a lot of thought to this question. Pro-choice forces within the Republican Party have not abandoned their quest to remove or at least weaken the pro-life plank in the Republican Platform. We encourage them to keep in mind that, until her name was removed in apparent anticipation of her race for Governor, Kay Hutchison was a member and recipient of funding from The WISH List (Women in the Senate and House), a political action committee "Mobilizing Financial Support for Republican Pro-choice Women Candidates."
During the nearly 20 years that the Republican National Coalition for Life has led the fight to protect and defend the pro-life plank in the Republican National Platform, the Texas Delegation and its Platform Committee members have stood with us. Whoever is elected Governor of Texas in 2012 will have a lot to say about that.
