Mark Kirk, Planned Parenthood, and the New “Contract with America”

by Laurie Higgins

It is utterly confounding that Illinois conservatives would even momentarily entertain the notion of voting for a candidate who believes women have a right to have their pre-born children killed, or even worse, voting for someone who supports the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. How about a candidate who pro-actively seeks the support of a business that profits from the spilled blood of the unborn—particularly the spilled blood of black babies?

Well, Illinois conservatives are spending many moments entertaining the notion of voting for just such a person in the truth-challenged, morally bankrupt Mark Kirk.

Read HERE Kirk’s prideful solicitation of support from the venal, eugenics organization, Planned Parenthood, that is committed both to killing the nation’s unborn and corrupting our youth.

I can just hear the condescending clucking of promoters of materialism and pragmatism who believe the good ends of promoting fiscal responsibility justify the means of allowing a man of such deformed moral conscience—a man who delights in all pro-homosexual and anti-life legislation—to obtain the honor of the title of U.S. Senator.

Well, I’ve heard enough from those who use ad hominem attacks and demagoguery to humiliate principled conservatives into submission. They accuse those who believe the social issues are critical of being politically naïve—or worse—and of splitting the party. Election after election, we hold our noses and our tongues in order to establish conservative majorities in the House or Senate. And what do we have to show for our obsequious obeisance? We have Mark Kirk.

Not only that but Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel warns that the impending revision of the successful Republican “Contract with America” may contain some troubling omissions. He writes that the spanking new contract “will likely not contain any references to pro-marriage or pro-life initiatives!”

Perhaps the voices of “moderates”—who could only be considered “moderate” in a relativistic world—are correct that all that is needed to preserve this great nation is economic stability and a strong national defense.

But maybe, just maybe we outliers are correct. Maybe, just maybe there is wisdom in the belief that even an economically vibrant, militarily strong nation can be brought to its knees by moral decay. Maybe those who hold fast to a long historical view understand that no nation that affirms child-sacrifice and perverse sexual unions can ever be economically viable. Maybe the sacrifice of the most vulnerable, the embrace of sexual immorality in all forms, and the rejection of marriage will destroy a nation.

Thanks, but I’ll pass on Kirk.

“For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their craftiness,’ and again, ‘The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.’” (1 Cor. 3: 19-20)
