Too many mothers and babies are dying from abortions. One death is too many, though. This is why I’m joining my friends Dr. Day Gardner and Rev. Catherine Davis of the National Black Pro-life Coalition Women’s IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME PROJECT to urge everyone to vote biblical values on November 6.
Life is precious and beautiful. The brutal deaths of women who die by abortion warrant a vote for life and family. Stop the killing; vote for life.
This urgent message relays why we should vote God's way. 
Read what my friend Rev. Walter Hoye, founder of the Issues4Life Foundation has to say on the subject:
“Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 55 million babies in its wake. Last July Tonya Reaves died from an abortion done in a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago.
"Ms. Reaves isn’t a poster child. She was a soon-to-be married, beautiful black woman, mother, and twin sister who is yet another victim of the abortion industry's criminal negligence and depraved indifference toward women and children. My wife and I are praying this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of black America to this wretched, unregulated, and taxpayer-funded industry that is profiting from the deaths of our women and children.”
Rev. Hoye is a leader in the call for a criminal investigation into the death of Ms. Reaves and other women harmed by abortion."
Our television and radio commercials are running this weekend. In them we note that fathers, mothers, womb babies, and society at large are at risk.
Day, who is founder of the National Black Pro-life Union, says that “DBA is alarming. Millions of babies have died, thousands of women have been maimed and hundreds of women have died from legal abortions in America since the passage of Roe vs. Wade. It could have been me or someone you love.”
NBPC’s national efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, is advancing our ongoing “awareness campaign” to inform, educate, and activate people to get involved to end the “scourge of abortion.” A biblical pro-life vote is part of their message.
The best way to help people is not to fund abortion and contraceptives, but rather support biblical values. People need jobs and education, not abortions.
We’re not advocating a personality contest for voters next week. This issue is too important to play politics. The truth isn’t always politically correct. We want voters to go to the polls and not stay home. We want people to remember God and life when they go to vote. Stop the killing, end the war on women. Vote pro-life!
