David Ripley: Fulcher for Congress

April 30th, 2018 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The Board of Idaho Chooses Life has voted to endorse Russ Fulcher for the U.S. Congress in Idaho’s 1st District.

Fulcher’s history with the pro-Life battle is deep and long. His passion for defending God’s gift of Life is measured by his actions over decades. Russ was the first president of Idaho Chooses Life Alliance, Inc., the 501(c)3 arm of this ministry some eighteen years ago. Over the years he has helped raise money for the pro-Life movement in Idaho. Not just this ministry but pro-Life pregnancy centers like Stanton.

In his second year in the state senate, Fulcher sponsored the final Parental Consent Law in the Senate, following a decade-long battle to protect our daughters from the lies, deceptions and manipulations of the Abortion Industry.

He led the Senate fight on our legislation to make it a felony to assist or participate in the suicide of another person. This law was a direct response to the threat posed by a national group (“Compassionate Choices”) which decided to target Idaho as the next victim in their campaign to legalize and normalize assisted suicide across America. With Fulcher’s help, we were able to push them out of Idaho. And they’ve not been back since.

Fulcher then moved into a leadership position in the State Senate, in which he became a facilitator and advocate of the pro-Life agenda.

In contrast with the other candidates, Russ Fulcher’s pro-Life commitment is profound, deep and long.

One of his opponents, Luke Malek, claims to have a “100% pro-Life record”. That claim is false. He carries a B- grade with this organization. He voted to implement ObamaCare in Idaho. Even worse, he voted against our Religious Liberty Amendment to the Insurance Exchange that same session – an amendment based upon the Hobby Lobby lawsuit that sought to protect Idaho employers from being forced into paying abortion-causing drugs. (And, by the way, Fulcher was a co-sponsor of that amendment in the State Senate, along with Sheryl Nuxoll).

Rep. Christy Perry has a worse Life Rating: She has a ‘C’ grade. She shares the Malek votes for ObamaCare and against our Religious Liberty Amendment. But just this session, she supported legislation that would have provided $29 million in new monies for Planned Parenthood. That is hardly the behavior of a “pro-Life” person – and certainly no one we need in Congress.

Former AG David Leroy does not have much of a record, but we are troubled by some of his answers to our questionnaire. He is not committed to ending federal funding of Planned Parenthood. And his fealty to the federal judiciary – despite their gross abuse of power in legalizing abortion, imposing same-sex marriage and a host of other perversions of the Constitution –is of great concern. Congress must accept its responsibility to check this out-of-control branch of government if the Republic is to survive.

And, finally, Michael Snyder. There is no doubt that he is strongly pro-Life. He provided us with an outstanding questionnaire. We’ve had meetings with him and it is clear that he has passion for ending the holocaust. Yet we are troubled by the fact that we only met him once he became a candidate for Congress. We are left wondering where he’s been for the last twenty-plus years that we have been battling the forces of darkness at the Statehouse and in the culture. It is not enough to hold pro-Life convictions. And it is not enough to be right. There must be action and sacrifice if we are to ever bring this horror to an end in America. Hopefully, once this race is over, we will be able to build a long and fruitful relationship with Mr. Snyder that strengthens the movement and saves lives. We would certainly welcome his help and support.
