A party that promotes a "culture of life" would allow women an opportunity to make a real "choice," with the advantages of pre-natal and post-natal care for infants, as well as educational and economic opportunities for families.
As the next Senator from Pennsylvania, I pledge to you, here and now, that I will actively oppose the President and his Congressional henchmen whenever they attack or undermine our Constitution for any reason.
