I’ve honestly lost track of exactly how many new right-wing groups and coalitions have formed since Barack Obama was elected president – I feel like there have been close to a dozen.
Well, we can now add another one to the ever-growing list, this one consisting of Priests for Life, Wallbuilders, the National Clergy Council, the Susan B. Anthony List, and others:
Declaring that it is time for the Culture of Life to gain ground at the voting booth, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today that a “Vote Pro-life” Coalition is forming to assist organizations, Churches, and individuals to foster Christian political responsibility.
“For years, Priests for Life has been working with groups like National Right to Life, Susan B. Anthony List, Wallbuilders, National Clergy Council, National Pro-life Religious Council and many other organizations to foster political responsibility. This year we will both continue and enhance this collaboration. The “Vote Pro-life” Coalition will assist organizations and individuals to advance activities like:
a) Non-partisan voter registration drives in Churches and through other organizations;
b) Educating candidates and voters about life issues and their critical importance;
c) Informing voters about the positions of candidates on key issues;
d) Getting voters to the polls during early voting and on Election Day, November 2, 2010.
