AZ Right to Life January 2010 Life Times

AZRTL Newsletter Header

Happy new year from all of is at Arizona Right to Life! Word on the street is that 2010 is an election year that will see an unprecedented influx of pro-life candidates winning elections at every level. Why?

In 2009 we learned that:

  • National polls found an overwhelming majority of Americans strongly opposing tax-funded abortion (CNN, PEW, Rasmussen)
  • We were right about the President, whose record now proves he is the most extreme pro-abortion president in history and has awakened moderate voters to the horrors of abortion.
  • Senator Ben Nelson's (D-NE) bribery story enraged Nebraskan voters, who are ready to oust Nelson in favor of sitting pro-life Governor Heineman 61% - 30%.
We are grateful that in 2009 Arizona Right to Life was saved by our friends of life who sacrificed their own resources in order to help us continue educating the public on life issues.

Front line strategy in 2010:

  • We are joining as an Action Partner in Dr. Alveda King's new venture "Pro-Life Freedom Rides" for the Unborn launching this Spring.
  • We will be providing HD video technology has produced stunning imagery of a child developing in the womb. See this amazing 30-second sample clip. With your continued support, these videos will be made available to churches, schools, and public places through our new level of outreach and training.
  • Our Political Action Committee stands ready to keep you informed during this critical election year in order to ensure pro-life candidates take office.
  • Partner with us for this year's Red Envelope Day, a grassroots movement that sent 2.5 million red envelopes to The White House last year, each representing one aborted baby. Millions more are expected to reach The White House and Congress this year. Learn more at Red Envelope Day 2010.
We look forward to your participation with us in these new and exciting ventures.

For Life,

Virginia (Jinny) Perron, president

Nebraska Doesn't Want Senator Nelson's 30 Pieces of Silver

Phoenix, AZ--Dec. 22 - After placing multiple calls to each of the six offices of Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson's six offices on Monday, Arizona Right to Life staff reached only busy signals and full voicemail boxes. But it looks like they weren't alone. The Omaha World-Herald reported that "The phone lines were jammed" in all of Nelson's offices.

Senate staff refused to divulge whether the calls were supportive or opposed to Nelson's 1 AM vote in favor of Obamacare, but The Weekly Standard reports that 90% of Nebraskans are satisfied with their healthcare and 61% of Nebraskans are now "less likely" to vote for Nelson when he is up for re-election in 2010.
