Michigan forgot pro-life roots in election
I was disheartened over the recent primary election results. We, the people of Michigan, finally received an opportunity to vote for a pro-life governor. There were three candidates running in the Republican primary who had a strong pro-life stand: Pete Hoekstra, Mike Cox and Mike Bouchard. But what did we do? We chose the only Republican candidate who does not believe in the importance of the pro-life issue.
We have strayed from our long-time, firmly held belief that “all men … are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights … Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Instead, we have made the economy our most important issue, to the neglect of being a voice for the precious, defenseless infant in the womb who deserves these same rights.
May God forgive us and help us to remember that what is of utmost importance to Him must also be of utmost importance to us.
