It doesn’t pay to change your (pro-life) stance

by CitizenLink Team

As I write this, the election results are still coming in.  But here are the races I was interested in: the allegedly 20 pro-life Democrats who threatened to vote “no” on the health care bill unless it contained sufficient pro-life protection, but who then turned around and accepted President Obama’s phony pro-life executive order in exchange for their “yes” vote.  There were 20 total turncoats, including 1 who retired (Stupak) and one who lost his primary (Mollahan)

As of right now, by my bleary-eyed calculations, many of the remaining 18 Democrats had a rough night – half of them lost their seats.  And while I can’t prove causation, let’s just say that the next time a lawmaker gives his word to protect the preborn, I’d recommend he keep his promise; then he might keep his seat.

Here are those who paid the price:

  • Chris Carney (PA-10)
  • Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-03)
  • Steve Driehaus (OH-1)
  • Brad Ellsworth (lost his bid for IN Senate)
  • Baron Hill (IN-9)
  • Paul Kanjorski (PA-11)
  • Charlie Wilson (OH-6)
  • Tom Perriello (VA-5)
  • Earl Pomeroy (ND-AL)
