HYPOCRISY REIGNS AS LIFE DEVALUED

Boulder, CO - The America First Party is strongly committed to the concept that the right to life is not superseded by any foreign or domestic law and should be protected by law. As Congress has recessed until after the elections, the Party is therefore deeply disappointed by the lack of action in Congress and by this administration to protect our nation's most vulnerable, the innocent unborn.

National Chairman Dan Charles stated, "Before leaving Washington to take care of what is most important to members of Congress, their own reelection, they spent their time approving a war on a country that has yet to attack or threaten America or the American people, while failing to secure our nation's borders. In the intervening time, America has experienced a loss one-third greater than 9/11 every day, as nearly 4,000 pre-born Americans have been slaughtered at the hands of doctors. The American people should be deeply disturbed that the President used his political capital to get 'permission' to kill the innocent Iraqis that Saddam Hussein will place between himself and our troops, instead of saving American lives."

The House recently passed a bill that would outlaw one of the most heinous forms of murder--the partial birth abortion. Contrary to the Bill of Rights, this practice denies life to tiny citizens without due process and is considered by many to be nothing more than infanticide. Dr. Curtis Cook, an expert in high-risk obstetrics, recently stated that he has never experienced a single situation where partial birth abortion is clinically superior to other medical and surgical options.

"A Partial Birth Abortion ban does not go far enough," stated Nancy Blankenship, Vice Chairman and National Committee member from Missouri. "Congress must overturn Roe v Wade and include in the legislation provisions to remove it from review by the Supreme Court. This type of language has been included in legislation since shortly after the Constitution was implemented. In fact, Tom Daschle removed forestry management provisions from Supreme Court review--but only as it relates to South Dakota. What is true for trees in his home state should be even more true for human beings, wherever they are conceived."

Another assault on life is the much-hyped embryonic stem cell research. The supposedly pro-life Republicans, under the leadership of President Bush, have allowed stem cell research to continue. They have approved of the creation of life for destroying it though both taxpayer funding and by failing to pass legislation that would ban this practice along with human cloning.

California National Committee member John Spooner, Sr. added, "Congress's inaction has allowed the likes of California Gov. Gray Davis to set policy on these critical issues. He has recently signed into law a bill that would encourage cloning for research purposes. Although the America First Party strongly supports state's rights, the Federal Government has used the interstate commerce law to prevent many practices less evil than the use of unborn citizens for research against their will. The government has a responsibility to protect our posterity. So far, those who claim they are pro-life have failed to do so."
