Pro-life election guides

California Prolife Council publishes candidate information for 14 regions of the state


The California Prolife Council, the state’s affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee since 1971, has prepared voters’ guides divided into 14 regions of California for the upcoming Tuesday, Nov. 2, elections.

In order to use the guides, readers must select their region of the state, then download a pdf file that contains candidate information for the selected area.

“CPLC is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian grassroots organization dedicated to the cessation of the perceived need for abortion, euthanasia and infanticide,” says a welcome statement on the organization’s website. “We believe this goal will be accomplished on two fronts: (1) working within the law to change the law and (2) changing public opinion through education.”

The voters’ guides for the various regions of the state provide candidates’ answers to three pro-life litmus questions and provide the answers to readers. In most cases, the guides enable prospective voters to determine who is pro-life and who is not. (In some instances, candidates refused to provide answers to the CPLC’s questions.)

This is fine - except for one thing - what I read is fifty percent of the voters have already voted! I have. Why in the world so late?

Vote pro-life.

The CPLC's voter guide is EXTREMELY helpful ! ! ! ! ! We should immediately pass on the link to the Guide to all of our Catholic friends. Time is running out for sanity in CA.

I could have used such guidance when I voted earlier by mail. Plenty of "liberal" voting guides were available. Why not this one?

I am one of the 50% that already voted. I just went to web sites and SBA LIST. I voted the way the guide just said. pax

I, too, voted by mail a couple weeks ago. After researching the candidates and propositions, I like to vote about 3 weeks before so as to not be influenced by the plethora of commercials. I reviewed the list for my area and confirmed that those who I voted for are pro-life and recommended.

A pat on the back and a kick in the nether region.... Great job needed Far to late as we and most of your responders note have already voted........poor timing!

Ladies and Gentlemen, this voter's guide has been out for a long time online. It has been done for the past elections too. All you have to do when you receive your ballot is put in "California Pro-life" in your search engine and go to the website, then click on the voter's guide if you do not get one in the mail. Kenneth Fisher you are right about including the candidates for judges. I research those candidates by putting in the candidates name and "on abortion" or something similar after the name in my search bar. Quite often one can get info that way. It would be easier if CPL printed it in their voter's guide, though.

Oh! you would have to put in the candidates locality also in your search bar. An example is : " John Smith from San Joaquin County, California, on abortion", Judge John Smith, etc.

As I said on another article, one can go to the Planned Parenthood Voter's Guide site to see just how pro-abortion or pro-llife the candidates for city councils are. Make sure you put in your zip code to get the ones for your area.

I waited to fill out my ballot until now. I am glad I did. I found that some council people I had previously voted for are very pro-abortion, pro same-sex marriage. I found out through the Planned Parenthood website. What an eye opener!

It is getting harder and harder to get the truth about anyone! On the national level, it is best to monitor the voting behaviors via National Right to Life. For local elections it is harder, although I have found that the best indicator is to use the "negative" acceptance. (If planned parenthood likes them, vote for their opponent!!!) In general, the Republican will be far more "Catholic", but not always. It all comes down to taking you voting obligation seriously and verifying facts rather than believing ads! Politicians LIE! Get the facts!
