“Pre-born children have a right to live. We will use by every legal, peaceful and persuasive means available to fight for an end to all abortions in keeping with our nation's promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all Americans, especially the innocents who cannot fight for themselves. We cannot turn a blind eye to the mass slaughter of unborn children and allow de facto infanticide to be the accepted norm in our culture.
“To kill babies for our convenience is the equivalent of an idolatrous offering to the god of "sexual license". It is no different than in times past when pagans offered their babies on an altar of fire to assure their own good fortune. Our fortunes as a nation lie in accepting responsibility for our actions, not running from them or destroying unborn children to avoid them. We do not hate or judge the women who have had abortions nor the men who have encouraged them to do so, but we are calling the American people to a higher standard of personal conscience. Abortion is a horrible evil and we must help people see it for what it is -- the taking of innocent human life.”
--Earl F. Jackson, Sr., Republican candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor
