Sen. George Allen agrees with CBR and FAB: “Virginia is Key”
Strategic pro-life activism means being at the right place, at the right time, with the right message. That’s what we do at CBR.
A decisive blow for ObamaCare and other pro-abortion legislation in the US Senate was delivered in the state of Virginia, way back in 2006. In November of that year, the pro-abortion candidate won a seat in the US Senate by fewer than 10,000 votes. Had just 5,000 voters switched from pro-abortion to pro-life (just over 2 voters/precinct), then the pro-life candidate would have won in 2006 and ObamaCare would have been rejected in 2009. Remember the midnight vote in the US Senate two years ago?
Just as Virginia was key to the pro-abort victories of 2009-2010, it is also key to undoing the damage in 2013-2014. Don’t take our word for it. Listen to the pro-life former Senator from Virginia, George Allen:
Virginia’s key. Our U.S. Senate race here in Virginia is one that objective observers say is crucial. If we win Virginia, the Republicans, the conservatives, take over the majority in the U.S. Senate and everyone recognizes that whoever wins the presidency, they need to win Virginia.
That’s why CBR is focused like a laser on expanding pro-life activism in Virginia and other key states. CBR can’t endorse any particular candidate or party, of course, but we can put abortion on the election-year agenda by forcing people to see what abortion is and does.
Abortion advocates and their allies in the media portray pro-life candidates as “extreme,” “arch-conservative,” “right-wing,” etc., but they portray pro-abortion candidates as “moderate.” By helping us take abortion pictures to Virginia, we can show young people that killing babies is an extremist act of terror, whereas saving babies is a rational act of compassion.
In 2011, we took GAP to 3 major universities in Virginia. We started 2 new pro-life clubs on campus. These students will constantly remind their classmates that abortion is an act of violence that kills a baby. We have invitations to take our GAP project to George Mason U and Virginia Commonwealth U in the Spring. But we can’t do it without your help. Please help us show voters in Virginia that voting for abortion is absolute evil. Click here to join us! No gift is too small; no gift is too large!
