Pro-life organizations are watching a Tuesday congressional election and calling on strong support for one of the candidates.
Illinois Congressman Dan Lipinski, a Democrat, may seem a bit out of sync with his party, which rabidly supports abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Since taking office in January 2005 he has been a pro-life warrior in Congress – and that may be why the Democratic Party has turned its back on him.
Lipinski also serves as co-chair of the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Life Caucus.
Volunteers have been knocking on doors in the southwest Chicago district urging support for Lipinski.
"We have to do everything we can to try and promote a bipartisan pro-life Congress," she says. "So pro-life groups, particularly Susan B. Anthony List, are doing everything we can to try and help Congressman Lipinski.
"The election is Tuesday, so the group is encouraging pro-life residents in the district to show up at the polls."
Lipinski's Democratic opponent is Marie Newman, who supports taxpayer funding for abortion and opposes placing any restrictions on abortion procedures. National Reviewreports her campaign "has been fueled primarily" by Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.

California Christians, prepare for civil disobedience
California's AB 2943 – the "Must Stay Gay" bill – is nothing less than governmental tyranny, nothing less than an abuse of elected power, nothing less than an unholy mandate against the holy claims of God. Will you sit back and take it? Or will you rise up against it?
