Pro-Family Restoration at the Ballot Box

Culturally and fiscally conservative voters in key election states made the difference in many state elections throughout the United States yesterday, contributing to pro-family wins across the country.

A conservative sweep of the U.S. Senate materialized with some major new pro-family and pro-life Congressional leaders winning in North Carolina, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado and many other states. These victories were won by pro-life candidates who now have a mandate for protection of families, and particularly women and girls, from the abuse of the abortion industry. While the right to terminate one’s child has been heavily funded and under-regulated, yesterday’s election will encourage greater oversight and concern for the health, safety and welfare of any mother even considering abortion. New pro-life Senate leadership will likely stall judicial appointments for judges preferring a parental right to end the life of an unborn child.

Pro-family citizens ought also to hold these elected officials accountable to protect the religious freedoms of people of faith, to live their lives based on constitutional principles of fiscal responsibility, and protect and advance individual personal responsibility. All Americans should be able to expect protection for the right to freely live out their faith without fear or oppression.

Yesterday the voting booth was the starting point for the long awaited opportunity for family restoration for men, women, children and families across the nation.

  1. As exciting as it was for fiscal and social conservatives to see the GOP regain control over the Senate, it seems that fiscal (to include tax, energy, and healthcare policies) issues will be at the forefront of the legislative aims for the upcoming congressional sessions to the detriment of important social policies that need to be addressed (and deserve to be addressed).

    As this blog post notes, last week's election and the subsequent conservative takeover of congress was a starting point, but only that. I'm afraid much will still be desired by, say, pro life individuals who desire more government oversight of the abortion industry and certainly less (but ideally none) government funding of abortion programs.

    I'm confident the conservative leadership will address some of the social issues related to family restoration, but, because of the seemingly more important issues at the fore (economic foreign policy, terrorism, energy, tax cuts, etc.), I am not optimistic that the big conservative win at the polls will, in itself, be enough to stem the tide of heavy funding and under regulation of the abortion industry in the next couple terms. Furthermore, the political gridlock existing today will be yet another hindrance to the social conservative's desire to seek reform of the policies directly affecting the pro family citizen.
