Joe Miller on Abortion

 

 


Roe v. Wade is judicial activism at its worst

Q: Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Miller: I believe that every life deserves the protection of the government. Roe v. Wade is an example of judicial activism at its worst, running contrary to the Constitution's clear mandate to protect life. Rare instances may occur where we cannot save both the life of the mother and the child. In such cases, we should save the life we can.

Planned Parenthood: end trade in murdered baby parts

Most of us have heard about the explosive revelations of the backroom butchery of Planned Parenthood. These undercover videos show--in gruesome detail--how Planned Parenthood has actively marketed baby parts to corporations like StemExpress who pay top dollar, depending on how complete the aborted body is and the "freshness" of the pre-born infant's organs.

America now sits in the unenviable position of not only being fully informed of the slaughter of innocents within its borders--closing in on 60,000,000 dead as I write this article--but also now being fully informed of the grotesque, multi-billion dollar industry that has grown up around the buying and selling of babies' corpses and body parts.

Abortion and the trade of fetal parts is morally repugnant and must be stopped. And the multi-billion dollar industry that has grown up around it must be exposed and banned. The future of our nation, our state, and our children--born and unborn--depend on it.

Don't talk about exceptions; talk about life

At a GOP debate Monday, Messrs. Treadwell, Sullivan and Miller each labeled themselves as pro-life candidates--although with varying exceptions. Sullivan would keep abortion legal in the case of rape, incest and to protect the mother's life. Treadwell would allow the procedure to protect the mother's life. And Miller said he would allow no exceptions.

"I don't think we ought to be talking about exceptions, we ought to be talking about life," Miller said at the debate, held in an evangelical church in Eagle River. "Why are we going to punish the sons and daughters for the father's sins? That's what we do for the rape and incest exception."

Miller's supporters distributed news clippings that in 2012 Treadwell blocked a measure that would have allowed a statewide referendum to outlaw abortion.

Abortion causes a culture of death

Miller: I am 100% prolife. Every life is sacred. We should safe every life we can.

Question topic: Briefly list political or legislative issues of most concern to you.

Miller: Abortion (about 57 million have been killed. This culture of death has a comprehensive impact, society-wide).
