Tea Party forcing GOP to be true to pro-life platform

My first experience of Tea Party Patriots was in Providence on April 15, 2009. I looked among their signs as I as photographing, and saw only two pro-lifers. Not that I am against fiscal responsibility and lower corruption in governtment, but it takes more than money to make me pick up a picket sign. It takes a life or death issue like abortion or euthanasia. Then I will travel hundreds of miles to influence lawmakers.

So I was excited at the strenghth of the Tea Party when I crossed paths with them in DC last September, but not yet convinced they were MY party. Now, Jill Stanek, has written a column in WND which has me convinced that they are going to save this nation. Not only will they save us from financial suicide, but they are providing us with true leadership from pro-life women like Carly Fiorino, and Christine O'Donnell who are replacing the RINOS and CINOS (Catholic in name only). Jill Stanek said she
didn't realize until MSNBC liberal host Rachel Maddow incredulously pointed it out last week that five GOP tea party-backed U.S. Senate candidates are pro-life with no exceptions: Sharron Angle of Nevada, Ken Buck of Colorado, Joe Miller of Alaska, Christine O'Donnell of Delaware and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

This is huge. The rape/incest exception is the other side's primary weapon to keep compassionate Americans from completely turning against legalized abortion. If pro-aborts lose that one, there's not much left in their arsenal.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards understands, hence her frantic email alert Monday calling this development, "not just crazy – truly frightening."
This news may send Richards over the edge: New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino is pro-life without exceptions, too.
And, of course, there is the superfluity of pro-life female candidates, causing many to proclaim this "The Year of the Pro-Life Woman."
Aside from Angle and O'Donnell, the two other pro-life U.S. Senate candidates are Carly Fiorina of California and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire. At present all 17 female senators are pro-abortion, including the four Republicans.
