Apparently, some campaigns are in need of a federal set aside program for substantive political rhetoric. The latest missive from the floundering gaggle of wannabes and couldabeens fails to recognize the fact that the current governor has a wide range of supporters who agree with her on some issues and disagree with her on others. The Morris family has been strong supporters of the Governor for her courage to face political reality despite the fact that they disagree with her overwhelmingly pro-life record.
But that’s what real campaigns are about, bringing people of different backgrounds and outlooks together. Having a creative PR guy grasping at every empty opportunity as your policy director may be a good way to hide your own weak record, but it insults the intelligence of the pro-life community. Also, this guy apparently forgot that Planned Parenthood was founded by Barry Goldwater’s wife. Perhaps, he should go down there and apologize to the statue. The rhetoric would obviously fall on deaf ears like the rest of his campaign, but at least this time he would have a good excuse.
Despite her disagreement with them on this particular issue, we know that the Governor is proud to stand with Jason and Paulina Morris (as are we), strong supporters of the Republican Party, and fellow Republican delegates who joined then Secretary Brewer in nominating Senator McCain for President in 2008.
Brewer’s Record on Protecting the Sanctity of Life
- Prohibited partial-birth abortions based on the federal model that has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
- Required that minor girls receive written, notarized consent from a parent or guardian prior to obtaining an abortion.
- Mandated that women receive information they need prior to deciding on whether to have an abortion and allow for at least 24-hours to reflect on that decision. Arizona is now the 22nd state to require a 24-hour waiting period and the 34th state to require informed consent.
- Required that doctors perform surgical abortions in order to protect the health of women.
- Expanded existing protections for doctors, pharmacists and other health care workers to refuse to participate in surgical abortions or prescribe prescriptions for chemical abortions.
