Mark Clayton on Abortion

 


Pro-life; neocons trick Americans into voting about abortion

Q: Please explain your viewpoint on abortion and how you would approach abortion-related issues, should they come before Congress.

A: I am pro-life. As more and more people become educated about the reality of what abortion truly entails, America is becoming increasingly pro-life. I personally do not believe that the Democratic Party can maintain itself as the party of abortion for much longer or we will have little success against the dangerous neoconservative agenda. Neoconservatives like George Bush and Senator Alexander like to trick Christians into voting for them over abortion just so they can get more power. I credit America's opposition to abortion as being one of the fatal reasons that George Bush's campaigns were able to trick many people into supporting his tragic election and re-election.
