Let's Send a Pro-Life Rocket Scientist to Congress!

I have often said that politics is not rocket science, but now we have a rocket scientist running for Congress!  Ruth McClung is a physicist who works as a rocket scientist.  She is strongly pro-life:

The value of life should not be taken lightly. Should I be elected, I would stand for the life of unborn babies. I would stand for protection of our elderly. I would also fight to defend animals against cruelty. Society must stand for those who cannot defend themselves or society is lost.

President Lyndon B Johnson said, “You know, doing what is right is easy. The problem is, knowing what is right.” I believe this statement is applicable to abortion.

I doubt that many would argue that the taking of an innocent life is wrong. The argument then begins with the question, “When does that life become a baby.”  Since I have an aunt and a cousin that both spent less time in the womb than many late term abortion babies, I cannot believe that those babies are not fully human and do not deserve the full rights of humans, including the right to life. I will support the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. My opponent is one of the 71 co-sponsors of H.R. 1964, which would nullify the national ban on partial-birth abortion.

I am also convinced that the humanity of a baby has nothing to do with whether or not it is in the womb.  At a “million cells” is it just cells, then at a “million and one cells” is it human?  There is no dividing line between non-life and life. We cannot devalue a human life in this way.  We must stand for life from the first cell!  If not, then we start down a dangerous path that will quickly lead to a culture of death in our society.  Is it not always better to error on the side of life?

I do not believe that many would suggest a young girl should do something that would cause her emotional pain for the rest of her life.  This brings me to the second life that abortion hurts – it is the life of the would-be mother.  We are giving young girls a huge choice that will affect them for the rest of their lives.  We need a society that stands up for these girls.  I understand that a girl may not be able to take care of a child at that point in her life, but I can say with surety that there will always be a family waiting to adopt that child. This will release that girl from the emotional burden that she may carry for the rest of her life.

Together, let’s stand for the value of life.

She is running for Congress in Arizona 7.   Her pro-abort adversary, Democrat Raul Grijalva, was thought to be unbeatable.  He has been in Congress since 2003, and is well funded.  It therefore must have come as a shock to him when a recent poll showed him tied with Ruth McClung who has virtually no campaign funds.    This would be a superb pro-life victory if McClung can pull this off.  If you wish to contribute to her campaign, go here.

  • Here’s the problem.

    That is all well and good, but listening to the video, it seems Ms. McClung is insufficiently grounded in the intellectual tradition of the Catholic Church.

    Apparently, she does not promote or defend the Church’s social teachings.

    It seems she would not fulfill Christ’s mandate to love and minister to the least of his brethren.

    BARF! Channeling the abortion catholic voter. GAG!

    Indeed. This hits close to home for me today. My twin niece and nephew were born this morning at 29-weeks old. Apart from arriving 11 weeks early and being very underweight (each at around 2.5 lbs) they are healthy.

  • There is at least one actual rocket scientist in Congress already – Rush Holt D-NJ. Unfortunatley, though, he’s a proabort …

  • Good for her. The rocket science thing is impressive in own right, but certainly nothing special for holding office. We had a nuclear physicist for President once. Can’t say that worked out too well. Then again, maybe what we need is a brain surgeon.

    Just for fun: :)

  • (Guest comment from Don’s wife Cathy:) Sarah Palin has now endorsed McClung (along with several other “commonsense conservatives” running for Congress) on her Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/notes/sarah-palin/more-great-candidates-to-support-this-year/440080678434

  • Yeah, and let’s not forget that we had the guy who invented the Internet run for President a few years ago.
