Rep. Lankford on “Hardball” with Chris Mathews to talk about abortion

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Rep. James Lankford was a guest on Hardball, Monday, Nov. 26th, defending the Republican Platform plank for a “Human Life Amendment to the Constitution” (extending full human rights to fertilized eggs at conception).

Lankford praised this principle as protecting “every human’s life”, and insisted that more than half of Americans are “pro-life” across all political lines.

He seemed unconcerned about the far greater majority (including many who say they are “pro-life” or anti-abortion) that supports the principle that reproductive decisions should be left to the woman involved … and the implications that a HLA (personhood amendment) would make criminals of the million women who choose abortion every year and all the doctors and medical personnel who perform them.

THE POLICY QUESTION ALWAYS IS:
“Aside from how you feel about abortion, do you believe such reproductive decisions should be left to the woman involved, or decided by the government?”

President Obama asks YOUR help; have YOU acted?


PROTECT AMERICA’S MIDDLE CLASS FROM A TAX INCREASE – NOW!

In this week’s weekly address, President Obama restated his request from his news conference last Wednesday: “I ask Congress to pass quickly legislation protecting all income below $250,000 from any tax increase now or in 2013. … The Senate has passed this legislation, and House Democrats stand ready to do so IF enough Republicans will join in supporting it.”

Contact Oklahoma House members AGAIN urging them to “Protect the Middle Class” by passing this legislation. Let them hear from tens of thousands of Oklahomans.

America voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama, and 60% of Americans support this legislation to “Protect the Middle Class with a guarantee of no new taxes”.

WILL YOU ACT … or stand by while the 1% blocks this legislation!?!?!?!

Please take action. America needs your input.
