When a recent presidential debate took place in our metropolitan area, my husband and I actually thought that we might be able to acquire tickets to the event. We soon discovered there were no such tickets available to locals like us who aren’t politically influential. In fact, not even the establishment where the debate was being held was given the benefit of tickets to distribute to its employees. Considering the desperate condition of our nation, I suppose that a town hall meeting not being authentically “locally grown” should not surprise me.
Since campaign stops are quite infrequent in my neck of the woods, and I was unable to find an option to ask the candidate a question on her campaign’s official website, I am resigned to ask the questions in this forum, hoping that someone like you might have the chance to meet Hillary Clinton on the trail and ask her one or more of these questions for me.
“When does a life begin? Is that when Constitutional rights begin? If not, why not?”
“Are pro-lifers part of your basket of deplorables?”
“Your campaign slogan is ‘Stronger Together.’ How would you represent the pro-life community and build togetherness?”
Key Question: Should people be single-issue voters over abortion?
Unshakable Truth: “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil. If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in his ways, and by keeping his commandments and his statutes and his rules, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. But if your heart turns away, and you will not hear, but are drawn away to worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today, that you shall surely perish. You shall not live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to enter and possess. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them” (Deuteronomy 30:15-20).
The Real Choice: Are you ready to reject death/curse/evil and choose life/blessing/good?
