Vote Smart's Research

  • Adam Hasner. National Review Online: Conservatism Set Me on the Pro-Life Path. 23 January 2012. "As the son of liberal Democrats, I didn't inherit my pro-life views or have them engrained in me by schooling or my institutions of faith. I have listened to the stories of people explaining how viewing an ultrasound for the first time or the experience of becoming a father or a mother can solidify a belief in the sanctity of life. I have not experienced this either. And yet I still arrived at the conclusion that every life is sacred from conception until natural death. That is because we cherish life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this country, and those rights should extend to every life, born and unborn." (www.nationalreview.com)
