051: Understanding The Civic Process with Karen Cross, Political Director for the National Right to Life Committee
< 1 day ago
In this edition of Life Matters Brian interviews Karen Cross, Political Director for the National Right to Life Committee. Karen explains the importance of pro-life individuals understanding the civic process and how to elect lawmakers who will vote to protect innocent lives. She explains her experience in West Virginia in trying to pass pro-life legislation and being thwarted by a pro-abortion committee chair. After deciding to find a candidate to replace that individual, not only were they successful in replacing the pro-abortion legislator but they were then able to pass the Woman's Right to Know Bill in West Virginia. Karen explains how pro-life legislation like the Hyde Amendment have saved millions of lives; millions of human beings are alive today because of the Hyde restriction on government funding of abortion. Karen then changes emphasis and explains how well-meaning pro-life people can actually work against their own interests if they don't understand the need to unite behind a winning candidate.
