How do we build a third party based on limited government and the Constitution?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Progressivism is taking root in this country, and the problem doesn’t just lie in the Democratic party. The problem extends to the GOP too. What does the Republican party even stand for anymore other than winning elections? They’ll do anything to win, even if it means compromising on the values and principles that made the conservative movement strong to begin with. Civil servants like Ted Cruz and Chris Stewart are unfortunately more the exceptions than the rule when it comes to conservative leadership in Washington. So what are the people who believe in the principles of small government and freedom supposed to do when they can’t find a home in the Republican or Democratic parties?

Since he returned from vacation, Glenn has been saying it’s time to look for a third party where people can find common ground based on the Constitution. He’s argued that people of different backgrounds and beliefs can come together on libertarian principles. But people need to have open and honest conversations in order to find the places where they can find the true big tent that will shape the future of the country.

In order to find this common ground, Glenn invited FOX News contributor Judge Napolitano, an expert on libertarian philosophy, onto the show to discuss the Constitution and how it’s principles can lead to a resurgence of freedom and small government.

    Having a devout Muslim occupying the highest seat of the land – this is a well directed and timely question. The first step would be to obtain our (the conservative faction of America) own arsenal – equipped with drones and all. We must remove (by force if necessary) the “godless” Democratic Party and outlaw any further use of its deceptive policies.

    We must police ourselves using the principles set down by God above.

    Otherwise, there is no tomorrow.

    BARACKBENGHAZI: Liar, Fraud and Accessory to Murder

    We know from pre-election reports that Obama makes the decision on every drone strike on each targeted terrorist, so when Tyrone Woods pleaded for a strike it is almost certain that no one would make that decision without asking Obama yea or nay.

    To say Obama makes every decision to drone or not to drone on an everyday basis, but when there is an international crisis requiring the immediate use of force Obama is suddenly a disinterested delegator is a preposterous absurdity.

    No one died in Watergate. Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Chris Stevens and Sean Smith are dead because Obama refused to answer their pleas for help on 9/11/12 and for the 6 months prior; ABCCBSNBC’s criminal conspiracy to cover up the details of Benghazi has made Nixon look like a wayward boyscout by comparison, every day since.

     An intriguing idea. Would you flesh it out for us a bit, please? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the details of how this would be accomplished.

    The “conservative faction of America” – who would be included in that? Yes, of course, people who believe in Freedom & Liberty and such, got that. But specifically, how would you decide if someone is in or out? Can anyone join the faction? Or is there some kind of test one has to pass to get in? Who enforces ideological discipline, and how?

    Removing the Democratic Party and outlawing them — I take that to mean you are going to have a revolution, declare liberalism to be illegal, and essentially have a dictatorship complete with Thought Police. Okay, so I guess you’re not so big on Freedom and Liberty after all, fair enough. How will you determine which “deceptive policies” exactly are godless and illegal? Who decides?

    And policing ourselves using the principles set down by God — whose God in particular are you going to use as a guide? Baptist? Methodist? Catholic? Jewish? Evangelical? Which version of Evangelical? Who is going to settle disagreements on religiously-inspired Laws? How are you going to settle them? Kill each other?

    Please fill us in! Thanks.

    For the love of Pete, let’s stop this B.S and get Ron Paul and Glenn Beck in the same room to discuss this common ground and the areas where we obviously disagree. It seems to me that the two personalities are getting in the way of us finding each other. If these two men can’t agree to get along with each other then how do they expect us to? A movement can have more than one leader. I may call myself a moderate libertarian and you can call your self a far right wing libertarian if you like. We can all occupy the same space, be civil with one another and have an honest debate. Our country is at stake for the love of God! Let’s put our differences aside and come together for the sake of our children.

    Absolutely. No offense taken…exactly my point. Beck gets a pass for attacking Paul because he doesn’t like some of his ideas or comments? Why wasn’t he talking to Paul supporters and libertarians before the election?? What good did his attacking Paul accomplish?? NOW he wants whoo them???

    Maybe the two men should come together and work out the disputes? I agree with 99% of what Ron Paul has to say. I think it’s stupid to allow a 1% difference of opinion to come between us. Afterall, it’s not about Ron Paul or Glenn Beck. It’s about our kids right to have freedom and liberty. Thanks for your opinion. I value what you have to say.

    most people get their information about the libertarians from democrats and republicans who only want to keep the libertarians out of the spotlight and labeled as crazy nut jobs. they will lie in order to keep the truth about libertarians from getting to the people. the media including fox news is just as guilty. most of the media wont even mention third party candidates much less give them a fair shot. we must demand that third party candidates be allowed to participate in election debates. it is unconstitutional to shut us out of the process.we must make noise to awaken the general public and force the media to put us in the spotlight. the democrats and republicans are both afraid of the libertarian party getting a voice in the public arena they know it be be their destruction.

    It’s called the libertarian party. I live in Portland and went to a Ron Paul rally (he wasn’t there), and let me tell you, it was AMAZING! Hippies, Christians, athiests, young, old, etc were all supporting the man. The security tried to do a TSA-level search and everyone just walked on by! I also knew through acquaintances many who voted for O in 2008 were ready to vote Ron Paul (if he hadn’t been swindled out of the nom by Romney) and ended up voting Gary Johnson, like I did (make note that I DID NOT vote for O, ever). Julie Borowski on youtube is adamant that the GOP needs to become the libertarian party and that it would take far too long to attempt anything through a 3rd party. I will always vote on my principles, though, and never the “lesser of the 2 evils”.

    HAHAH Good sir, This was enjoyable to read, while yes you did not utter a single lie per say, But how much do you really know? Did you know that the governement was intended to be ran and voted on almost entirely by its self? no i thought not. Allow me to explain. 

    The system was designed for the eventual formation of parties, this did not however occur as expected, using England as a model, a 3 party system was expected. Now how could this be you ask? Originally the president was supposed to be voted based up on peoples votes. However! If they running party did not receive 50%+ of the vote then the president would be chosen by the Senate. The Senate was originally supposed to be voted into office via Local Governments, with no required vote from the people. The ONLY position in government that was voted on Directly was the Representatives. 

    I also believe that the only thing that matter to either party is winning the elections, I don’t believe that either party has any guts to stand by their actual beliefs. Your retort good sir?

    Instead of spending so much time (infact all the time) fighting the rhinos versus all progressives, why not use that time to fight all of the progressives at once with a platform that cons agree on?

    the problem is that cons can’t tell who is a cons or not.  rubio is not a conservative.  yet, he got elected on tea party platform and with his amnesty program that is same as obama, rubio is infact working for obama admin.

    rhinos have a way of getting to cons as they have done for decades.  as they did in last election as they got cons to reject every gop cons rival of romney who ran a bad campaign like mccain. 

    rove is already saying now that he is not trying to split party or against tea party – and that is all it takes to warm up to conservatives so that they will keep submitting to him and his friends, like bush famiily and romney.

    Fortunately, the US COTUS can be amended. Election of Senators by legislatures was amended away because legislatures routinely sent their most corrupt members to the Senate, a reform that took place before any of the Beck Boogeymen were even born.  I can find nothing in the COTUS that requires three parties, nice trivia if it’s true but useless trivia it is. I also can find nothing about the president “originally” being elected directly by the people, one thing that has never been amended is the Electoral College method of choosing a president, where if he does not achieve a majority the election is thrown to the Congress, something that is yet to happen.  As things stand today, and have for a long time, the people elect the House, as intended, to be the closest to the people, and they have continually elected House majorities which have passed and funded Social Security, Medicare and all the other social programs. None of it was imposed by either the President nor the Senate, because the Constitution strictly forbids it. All spending bills MUST originate in the US House. The American People are the one’s directly responsible for the social programs we have, there are no conspiracies of Beck Boogeymen involved.

    Correct. It is insane that it just keeps happening. Even Mark Levin, Hannity, Limbaugh were suckered by Rubio.

    The system is so corrupt now, with so much power concentrated into so few hands, it almost guarantees that anyone so perverse to think they should hold that degree of power, by definition, is proof they are unfit to hold that degree of power.

    There really needs to be a fourth branch of government, comprised of 100,000 to 1,000,000 of the most wise among us (determined by test and/or accomplishment but ABSOLUTELY NOT ELECTED BY MORONS) to have the final say on everything. 1,000,000 unpaid, objective, wise, altruistic, decision makers would be virtually uncorruptable

    The three branches of government are now heinously irreversibly congenitally corrupt, directly as a result of elections that include the abjectly inane, the profoundly deranged and the terminally deluded, ie, the 51% Obamob.

  • Bob Gay

    It’s a long read but very worthwhile since i go into the
    meaning that our founding fathers tried to convey. Here my cut and paste

    let’s start, then, with the text of the Constitution. In relevant part, Article
    II, Section 1 reads:

    No person except a natural born Citizen,
    or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this
    Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any
    Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of
    thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    That’s it. No finer point is put on that term
    in the Constitution, The Federalist Papers, or any record of the debates of the
    Constitutional Convention of 1787.

    In the face of such a dearth of definition we
    could abandon the quest to understand the Founders’ intentions, or we could
    pause and recognize that where a word’s definition is so universally understood
    no additional clarification would be necessary. 

    That is to say, everyone in the room at the
    State House in Philadelphia that summer of 1787 knew what was meant by “natural
    born citizen,” and they felt no obligation to provide any additional insight.

    For example, I don’t have to explain to you
    what I meant by “summer” in the previous paragraph because everyone knows that
    that is the season of the year starting in June in and ending in September. So
    it was in 1787 with “natural born citizen.”

    The next important step in our analysis is to
    identify the source of our Founders’ concept of “natural born citizen.” Despite
    the fact that RedState ridicules his importance, it is almost certain that the
    men who drafted our Constitution accepted Emerich de Vattel as the authority on
    the definition of that vital concept.

    It can be claimed without exaggeration that it
    is Vattel’s interpretations and writings on the subject of the proper
    constitution of government that was most influential on the Founders of the
    American Republic. As a matter of fact, Thomas Jefferson, indisputably one of
    the lead framers of our nation’s government, ranked Vattel’s seminal The Law of
    Nations or the Principles of Natural Law as highly as similar treatises by
    Grotius and Pufendorf.

    Benjamin Franklin shared Jefferson’s
    admiration for Vattel. In 1775, Franklin wrote in a letter:

    I am much obliged by the kind present you have
    made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the
    circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the law
    of nations. Accordingly that copy, which I kept, (after depositing one in our
    own public library here, and sending the other to the College of Massachusetts
    Bay, as you directed,) has been continually in the hands of the members of our
    Congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and
    have entertained a high and just esteem for their author.

    Next, consider the irrefutable fact that
    Vattel’s interpretations of the law of nature were cited more frequently than
    any other writer’s on international law in cases heard in the courts of the
    early United States, and the Law of Nations was the primary textbook on the
    subject in use in American universities.

    For all the foregoing reasons we are right to
    turn to the Swss-born Vattel’s Law of Nations for our understanding of the
    definition of “natural born citizen” just as our Founding Fathers did.

    To that end, here are a few relevant
    selections from Vattel’s Law of Nations regarding the concept of “natural born
    citizen”:

    § 212: “Natural born citizens are those born
    in a country to parents who are also citizens of that country. Particularly, if
    the father of the person is not a citizen then the child is not a citizen
    either. Children cannot inherit from parents rights not enjoyed by them.”

    § 213: “While those individuals described
    above may be permitted to remain in the country of their birth, they are not
    naturally endowed with the rights of citizens.”

    § 214: “A country may allow a person born in a
    country to foreign parents the status of citizenship, this is called
    naturalization. That is a function of law, not of birthright.”

    §§ 215, 216 & 217: “Children born overseas
    to parents who are foreigners in that country do not become natural born
    citizens of that country, rather they are citizens of the country to which
    their parents owe allegiance.”

    One very astute writer ably summarized the
    import of Vattel’s statements:

    The republican concept of “natural born
    citizenship” is radically different from the feudal notion of “natural born
    subject ship.” Under feudalism, merely being born in the domains of the King
    made one — by birth — a “natural born subject.” But in Vattel’s Model and Our
    Constitutional Republic, Citizens are “natural born” only if they are born of
    Citizens.

    Finally, in 1787, John Jay, who later became
    one of the authors of The Federalists Papers, wrote the following in a letter
    to George Washington:

    Permit me to hint, whether it would not be
    wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners
    into the administration of our national government and to declare expressly
    that the Command in Chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor
    devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.

    Accordingly, Jay’s recommendation were
    accepted by the Convention and became part of the constitutional requirements
    for executive eligibility. So our good president has no right to be There. Now what can you do to kick the bum out?

    I am sick of the GOP they sound more in line with liberal standings
    than conservative small government. I am sick of it all. we need to stand as
    one in a third party only because the other parties seem to care more about
    gaining power for themselves instead of restoring power to the people this
    cannot stand any more. I am sick of throwing rocks on the inside the tent of
    the GOP and seeing nothing done and have nothing to show for it. The GOP left
    us we not we them and now is a time for a split before we lose the chance to do
    that as well. Demanding change from the GOP has not changed a damn thing and
    you only fooling yourselves if you think that this party can be saved by
    staying the course is not helping that how Obama got back in because the people
    that did vote stuck with the devil they knew and not with the new devil that I even

Which was hilarious because only two years before that these right wingers were marching around at their Tea Party rallies waving AMERICAN flags and screaming “These colors don’t run”, and “We’re taking our country back”…they were calling themselves the “real Americans” and the “true patriots”…Then, on Nov 6th 2012, they take a punch to the nose and BAM—they’re ready to run to the hills! LOL! They’re ready to bail on the very country that only months ago they were waving the flag of and vowing to defend! Now they want to abandon their party. Rather than push the RINO’s out they’re just going to let the RINO’S have the party and they’re going to run off and start another party.   How many forts do they abandon before they stand their ground?  So go ahead “real conservatives”…build a new party… get it all nice and powerful…make sure it’s fat and shiny for the next owners who will, when they’re ready, come and snatch it from you.

    How ironic it is for a CBS Newsman (John Dickerson) to call for the “Pulverization of the GOP” and we hardly hear a peep from the radical left, but when someone – say me for instance, implies the same thing against our ever so loving Progressives, who have taken over this nation by stealth, in buying needed votes and who have thrust on the hardworking tax payers back, such an impossible burden, that realistically speaking, our national debt can never be paid off.

    War is imminent, its simply a matter of when, not if.

    I will fill you in. God himself will see to it that our nation obey his voice – this change of Mans GOVERNMENT over to DIVINE GOVERNMENT will radically alter the status-qua, neither party will like it, but, none the less, change is coming soon – mark my word – you’re welcome – ZEROGON

    Ron Paul won’t do it – he is an anarchist.  You may have better luck with Rand, but probably not as he has ruled out 3rd party and he does most everything according to what the establisment likes of Rove-Romney tell him to do.  Beck is too much into Israel to move.

    Rand is for amnesty so that those over 11 million illegals will not vote for him, hence he has no desire to win.

    Bingo!  Country on both sides of aisle are ready for a third party, but it has to be  stong leader.  That leader has not emerged or won’t run.  Remember Palin and Trump refused to run even though they really wanted to.

  • jen

    Well, we agree on something.  Problem is that libertaians lack courage and are not up to the task.  And bigger problem is that no leader for 3rd party has emerged or wont’ run like Palin and Trump.

    See even the Judge won’t speak of 3rd party.  I like the Judge, but the Judge is an anarchist and will stick to his kitty box.

    I have been a member of the Tea Party since the day it was founded. We have not abandoned our fort. We are still here fighting and have sent dispatches to Patriots like you to come to our aid. The squabbles between our factions can wait until after we have won this war.

    It sometimes seems that people these days are more concerned with being right than doing what is right.

    Quite honestly, this discussion with Judge Napolitano is excitingly refreshing.  I think it very possibly could be time for a third party–but why not start a new one rather than try to redirect another existing party.  Isn’t that what was tried with the Republican party?  The tea party tried to jump in behind the Republican party and the result was dissatisfaction.  Why not get a core combination of people with the same like minds when it comes to the basics and then–once well established–draw off followers from all parties?  Dr. Benjamin Carson, Judge Napolitano, John Mackey, Rand Paul, Mitch Daniels –a few that come to mind. 

    Name the party something indicating American and indicating independence from all other parties and have the platform already hashed out in main titles and supporting titles so that all issues are already placed in the where and how catergories; ie.  I.  Limit Federal Government–explanation as to why–subtitles as to what the federal government will be in charge of and only in charge of.  2.  Social concerns allocated to individual states–explanations as to why and as to what topics are social concerns.  3.  Immigration reform–concrete supporting subtitles explaining how and why  4. Tax reform–same thing, Etc. etc.  Allow a year to hash out the basic outline and then three years to get the word out in concrete/make sense form.

    Organization, adequate understandable education to the individual, and misunderstanding of the emotion over social problems killed the 2012 effort.

    Elizabeth,

    I admire your rock solid principles. I voted for Romney, not because I believe as he does in every instance, but because I believed he would help pull us back from the brink of destruction just enough that we could have more time to save our country. Now we are hurdling towards the cliff lightning speeds because Obama is in office.

    judge nap is a libertarian as is rand paul who ran as a  republican due to the fact that the media will not give the third party any time other than a few minutes here and there calling them nut jobs. third parties are also locked out of the election debates by both the democrats and republicans along with the media. most people don’t have a clue what the libertarians stand for. if they did most americans would vote for them, thats why the media, the democrats and republicans lock them out and spread misinformation about them to the public.

    Denise, I admire the Constitution Party as I am pro-life, however I recognize that it most likely wouldn’t garner a majority due to the religious nature. I’m NOT saying that it’s wrong, however. But look at the state of America. They hate the GOP and anything of a non-secular nature.

    By the way, if you’re going to quote the Constitution, patriot, don’t leave parts out. The relevant paragraph you tried to quote above actually says

    No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    OR A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES.  
    BAM.

    Thanks! I didn’t approve of Romney changing the rules of the RNC and stealing the nom from Ron Paul (a friend of mine was a delegate on the East Coast), but he was a better choice than Obama. I have to believe that this whole thing is going to implode- does that mean collapse of the dollar, I don’t know. But into 2014 as all the taxes/fees/penalties from Obamacare kick in, people will freak out. When you start hitting them in the pocketbook, they’ll start paying attention. Also, I’m no economist, but my common sense tells me that the national debt cannot be sustained. How that will go down again, I don’t know. I just know that I make $50,000, and I certainly can’t rack up debt into millions. It’s not possible.

     Thank you ZEROGON for your reply.

    I cannot speak for your CBS newsman, of course, but I did look up your  reference to “pulverization”. It seems pretty clear that Dickerson was speaking of electoral and political defeat for the GOP, which doesn’t seem particularly shocking (or interesting) to me. Your comments, on the other hand, seem quite literal. You speak of acquiring weapons, removing Democrats by force, and outlawing their policies. Were you being metaphorical? Perhaps I misread your comment? If you were being literal, then your advocacy of an armed coup can hardly be equated to a (pretty cheesy) column advocating “hardball” political tactics.

    And again, you’re teasing us. You say War is imminent, God is coming to take over .. .I presume that’s meant literally .. but no details! Does this mean God is going to send angels with swords to lop off the heads of non-Republicans, perhaps? Or will He just come and declare all our elections null and void and seat Himself in the White House? Or, since you speak of an imminent war, perhaps God will work his will through your armed revolution? So are you saying you are going to overthrow the government by force, outlaw differing politicial opinions, and then declare that your new Regime rules by Divine Right? or something like that? Seriously, it’s fascinating, we’d love to hear more detail. Obviously you wouldn’t want to tip your hand as to when your revolution begins, but just an explanation of the Plan would be awesome. Thanks very much.

    We already have a third party based on the constitution.  Its called the Constitution party.  It is the third largest party in the nation, and since the Republican Party has removed the tea party people from committees, the Constitution Party has begun to grow by leaps and bounds.   Defectors from the Repubs are increasing, even among important leadership.  Help save this nation.

    The Libertarian movement is a complete failure because you’ve got anti-women fascists like Beck claiming they are “liberatarians”. A true libertarian wants government completely out of everyone’s lives, yet Beck wants the government to be in women’s vaginas. Same with religious issues, Beck wants our courthouses adorned with the trappings of his religion and our public schools to become Christian indoctrination centers.  Until this contradiction is resolved inside the skulls of people like him, the Libertarian movement is going no where.

    First of all, lets get this little tid-bit of information correct, if Dickerson worked for me, he would have been shown the door years ago, so no, hes not “my CBS newsman” in the least.

    It seems the liberal faction of the States has mocked the equation that God exists and it is he, who is in control. Now to understand this invisible powerful entity is all together different than most presume…even the professing class claiming to be religious. Why you may ask, well the answer is quite simple…they’d rather listen to the smooth talk coming out of the mouths of fast talking clergy, rather than “proving God to be real for themselves and if anything…what is it that he wants from us stubborn humans – to understand and to do. Is there a purpose to this life and if so, what is that purpose?

    So it doesn’t surprise me in the least that you do not understand what lies ahead in the coming days, weeks, months and years. BUT, for those who do understand God and the mystery of his work, for these few, they know full well what his plans are and what he is up to in these very days we live. His plan does involve the overthrow of the American people, not many will agree with me I am more than certain, but the truth will be made known sooner than later and when the bombs start exploding and riots become commonplace, many will remember that God did warn our population well in advance, most were just too busy scoffing at the news…that is, until it has become too late for avoiding the repercussions of events yet to unfold.

    God is no longer protecting the UNITED STATES of AMERICA – in fact, he is against our people in every way…except for a select few who obey his voice and understand his message by long hours in time consuming study of the scriptures.

    You will understand this soon enough as events all around us are already unfolding that will bring this nation to its knees – if our people do not wake-up soon and turn to God, then and at that time, the next phase that follows on the heels will result in complete destruction of our people – not just the dip-wit liberals, but the conservatives as well, who, the later in many ways, are worse than the liberals – for they are the very one’s proclaiming that they know God, but are also the very same one’s who by in large, do not know or understand the first thing about Him and therefore, because of this self induced stupidity and lack of knowledge about the very God they supposedly worship – that hypocrisy alone has turned many a good nature and honest person away – leaving them no where else to turn except toward the godless atheists, who, quickly turn to their own devices and become even more Godless than ever before. Sadly, that has been the prevailing trend over the past few decades and that is precisely why God has become angry, so angry, that he is at the point of totally destroying us.

    I wish I were teasing you, but this is no joke, on the contrary, its as real as it gets and time is swiftly running out for anyone to change his or her behavior and walk with God.

    You say are looking for a tip that you might watch for, as time unfolds, that you may know when these events will play themselves out, the following will be the only sign for when these horrific events will take place. When you see European Armies surrounding the city of Jerusalem, then know, that the time is at hand and the desolation certain. All nations will be defeated starting with the Muslim world (Persians and their allies) then quickly coming afterwards – the US, Britain and the commonwealth nations, alongside with the tiny nation of Israel. This time of trouble as it is described in scripture, is strewn throughout the bible in great detail, and easily found for the one who seeks the information out…all one has to do, is prove this information for themselves and act upon the saving knowledge and be spared.

    I do not write this in an attempt to win you over, or to somehow convert you to a better and more productive way of thinking – God only knows the hearts of men, this knowledge is for those only, who prove and then believe. But – I write this only – that when these events unfold, then, and only then, will many start coming to their senses and understand that this wonderful lifesaving knowledge has been right before their very eyes all along, but they simply refused to look.

    If this response doesn’t answer your questions – give it some time and as I said, when your own eyes start seeing the things here written, play out then all your questions will be answered…of course it will be too late to be spared from the coming conflict.

    There is one more question that you may have – then at that time – “why didn’t I prove to myself what ZEROGON was saying”

     While I will agree with you on forcing religion in our public schools, I have to disagree with your women’s right point. I consider myself to be a libertarian but at the same time I am pro-life. Just as Judge Napolitano said, a woman has the right to do whatever she wants to her own body but does not have the right to do whatever she wants to the life growing in her body. So if a woman is pregnant she should not be able to get an abortion, just as you or me can’t go and kill someone. Abortion is not a woman right’s issue it is a life issue.
