The Handshake Before the Match

Today is like the handshake before the athletic competition. A new president has taken over the helm and, at least, for today there should be civility and respect for the office of the President of the United States. But tomorrow the gloves come off and it is up to all conservatives to stand up (if I may be so forward as to use a phrase from the Obama playbook) BOLDLY and defend the things that we hold precious.

One of the most important battles for social conservatives during this administration will be played out over the most vulnerable of citizens---the unborn. Planned Parenthood and FOCA loom large on the horizon. We have the most Pro-abortion President and Congress in the history of our country and there is much to be lost in the next few years unless we stand together with conviction against this rising tide.

We have spent so much time in the past 8 years being PC and we have precious little to show for it other than ground lost. PC is political and ideological impotence. It is gratifying to give credit to CatholicVote.org for this powerful pro-life advertisement that is being played on national television during the Inauguration coverage.

To all of you who support FOCA and the ability to make abortion easier to obtain than it already is--think of this--Barack Obama would not be President today if his mother had taken the walk down YOUR path!
