A Poignant Letter by a Former State Representative

By | Opinion | One Comment

Over ten years ago, when I sat on the House Judiciary Committee as a Representative from Dover, I would cringe when the Director of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England stated, with a straight face, that money they received from the state went to the women’s health side of Planned Parenthood but not to providing abortion services.  I believed I…

Tragic Trigger

By | Opinion | No Comments

I am on social media daily.  This past week was a difficult week. Friends were posting about the couple that beat their precious three year old son to death over a period of three days because he refused his breakfast.  The pictures recovered from the home, depicting holes in the wall where his head struck having been punched while hung…

What Is At Stake

By | Opinion | No Comments

Votes matter, but they are slow and often deceptive.   A person may convince us that they are in line with our core principles, only to cave when there is social pressure.   The politics of access is a dangerous thing.  Aligning with a person or group because they are in a position of power is never a good place…

Disqualified

By | Opinion | No Comments

There are some really great candidates in NH this year! Please check out our Endorsed Candidates list. Some candidates are disqualified to receive my vote. There are hurdles to overcome in every campaign. This is a given, but most people think in terms of raising money and gathering supporters.  Their concept is more about popularity than principles.

Smoke & Mirrors

By | Opinion | No Comments

Holy Smokes! We are constantly hearing about candidates who claim to be ProLife. Some have voting records that we can check, but sometimes that can be tricky too. For example; there could be a bill that proposed to protect babies from abortion, but someone introduced exceptions for fetal anomaly. If the legislator voted against it because of the exception clause,…

People are working hard to make ends meet and give their hard earned money to support the Advocacy Groups they believe will actually do what they say, whether that is to keep them informed about legislation and policy or feed…

Naughty-Dog Politics

By | Opinion | No Comments

Four out of five of my children have already owned their own businesses.  My youngest daughter was breeding Labrador Retrievers for a while.  Eight or ten puppies is a handful, I can tell you.  They develop their personalities pretty quickly.  It was interesting to see how my daughter would match people and puppies based on their lifestyle. We had a…

Where Are the Voters?

By | Opinion | 4 Comments

We have some really great ProLife candidates here, in New Hampshire. I received dozens of Affirmation Statements from candidates all over the state.  The Affirmation states in part that a candidate, once he or she becomes a legislator, will do all they can to protect the Right to Life for all human beings regardless of race, age, degree of disability,…

Pro-life vs pro-choice candidates: How can we tell?

By | Opinion | 3 Comments

Guest Post by Kurt Wuelper, President of New Hampshire Right to Life Committee and candidate for State Representative. In recent years, polling shows that a majority of Americans consider themselves ‘Pro-Life’. How can we tell if a candidate is pro-life vs pro-choice? The question is, “What does it mean to be Pro-Life”? Can one support abortion and still be pro-life? What…

GOP: Status Quo? Or Return to Principled Leadership?

By | Opinion | One Comment

Guest Blog Post by Charlotte Antal, Trustee of NH Right to Life, mother of two and conservative voter. In public service, independent thinking is not a bad thing when you are advocating for something objectively true…or when your party is doing something wrong (God knows the left needs more independent thinkers on right to life issues these days).  But Scott…
