Between the platforms of the two major American political parties, one explicitly enumerates the right to life for a child in the womb: The Republican Party.
From the 2016 revised platform, “We assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.” However, that language is lacking, and does not specify when human life begins. In response, several state parties have taken it a step further, one of those being Arizona.
A few years back, the Arizona GOP adopted a resolution put forth by national committeeman Bruce Ash. The resolution corrected the vagueness of the national platform, and expressly defined “conception” as the moment when human life begins, and it was at that point a person was guaranteed the right to life.
Just last month, state committeemen gathered once again at the annual statutory meeting. Russell Pearce, a former state legislator, and staunch conservative, submitted a subsequent right to life resolution. This resolution denounced the practice of abortion, and announced the state party is fighting to overturn Roe v. Wade. This proposed update passed in committee by a vote of 20-0, and was officially sanctioned after a floor vote.
Despite the fact that the sanctity of human life and the protection of innocent children is a foundational pillar of the Republican Party (both statewide and nationwide), a county GOP in southern Arizona is promoting the candidacy of an abortionist.
In April of 2021, a woman named Sherrylyn Young entered a political race to represent a Tucson legislative district at the state capital. Despite a career spent dismembering unborn children, she intentionally deceived the pro-life faction of her own party. Eventually, the truth was uncovered, and activists blew the lid off of her deception and bloodshed.
Was she repentant? Was she grieved over her past? Absolutely not. When asked if she regretted her actions, she replied, “No, I don’t regret it.”
With a legacy of small, and precious mutilated bodies, Sherrylyn Young is on the loose and asking for the Republican vote, all with the help of debauched Republican leadership.
