Quote of the Day: Creating A Culture Of Life

"Over the weekend, Governor Sarah Palin challenged Barack Obama on his radical pro-abortion views. Speaking in Pennsylvania, she told an audience, “As defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child?”

Yes, America is experiencing some challenging economic times. But America is more than just the sum of its Gross Domestic Product. Our virtue deficit is just as important as our budget deficit to the survival of this nation. Campaign for Working Families just sent out checks totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars to help elect conservative candidates who are pro-life.

When it comes to values issues, the McCains and the Palins have “walked the talk.” John and Cindy McCain are adoptive parents, and Cindy has devoted much of her life to philanthropic work helping children in need. And the Palins, through their son, Trig, have been a tremendous inspiration to many parents across America who have children with special needs.

I’d like to share with you an article by Daniel Allott, published this weekend in the Washington Times, about the “Trig Palin Effect.” With John McCain and Sarah Palin in the White House, men and women of faith and families across the country will have two advocates for traditional values, who will work with us to make America a “shining city upon a hill.”
