Any politician, leader, or group not listed in Tier 1 can raise their ranking simply by asking. We will take them at their word. They can simply let us know which Tier describes their commitment to personhood and the God-given right to life of the unborn. (We offer a $100 reward to anyone who can document a serious error in a profile or an incorrect ranking.) For pro-lifers put themselves into four categories: personhood now, personhood whenever, personhood later, and personhood never. Where do you rank?
|advocates for personhood protection right now
|advocates for both regulating child killing and personhood not realizing
that defending those who kill some children undermines personhood
|works against personhood until our immoral and godless courts approve
of the effort to acknowledge the God-given right to life
|denies the personhood and God-given right to life of the unborn by advocating a permanent "legalization" of the intentional killing of some preborn children for various reasons, meaning they are pro-choice with exception
The Fourth Tier includes Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, George W. Bush, and all who use the pro-life title but deny the personhood and God-given right to life of the unborn. Decades of regulating abortion using laws that end with and then you can kill the baby (informed consent, waiting periods, PBA ban, etc.) by pro-family organizations and governing officials have unavoidably undermined personhood and have moved leaders downward from the top tiers toward the fourth. (See more, and others on the 4th Tier.) Meanwhile the personhood movement pulls people upward to the first tier to reject both the regulation of murder and the so-called "exceptions", and to instead advocate now for personhood. God didn't care about all the fruit Eve did not eat; nor did He mention all the women David did not violate; nor list the children whom Herod did not kill. God looks at the exceptions.
The Third Tier includes those in the pro-life industry who actually oppose and undermine personhood efforts and advocate only regulating murder with laws that end with the meaning, and then you can kill the baby, including National Right To Life, Americans United for Life, and Focus on the Family. (See more, and others on the 3rd Tier.)
The Second Tier includes pro-lifers like Randall Terry, Janet Folger Porter and Priest's for Life's Rev. Frank Pavone who promote both regulations and personhood. (See more, and others on the 2nd Tier.) These defenders of life do not yet realize that their advocacy of personhood is contradicted and undermined when they defend exceptions and ask judges to uphold laws that say if you wait 24 hours then you can kill the baby. This double-minded strategy resulted in an overwhelmingly pro-choice federal judiciary even though pro-life Republican presidents nominated 60% of our federal judges.
The First Tier consists of those who fight now for the personhood of unborn children and do not undermine that effort by simultaneously advocating contradictory child-killing regulations. First tier pro-life leaders include Leslie Hanks of Colorado Right To Life, Judie Brown of American Life League, Ambassador Alan Keyes of America's Independent Party, and Cal Zastrow of Personhood USA! (See more, and other 1st Tier Leaders)! The personhood movement spearheaded by these men and women has returned hope and the vision of victory to Christians fighting for the innocent!
The Tendency to Decay: Consider moral entropy. The strategy of defending those with "exceptions" and of regulating child killing made it an easy slide, or even unintentionally pushed, thousands of first-tier ministers and famous pro-lifers down to the second and third, and even to the fourth tier. See for example Ann Coulter, Pat Robertson, and Billy Graham. This slide through moral relativism includes Pat Robertson who actually defended on CNN the atrocities of China’s forced abortion program, and Billy Graham who has slid to where he writes that he actually approves of Christians who kill handicapped and some other preborn children, and a thousand more ministers who would likely have followed principled leadership but who now themselves actually oppose protecting by love and by law certain unborn children. After decades of moral compromise by our Christian leaders on, of all things, the intentional killing of innocent children, today millions of self-identifying evangelical Christians and Catholics, many of whom claim to be pro-life, voted in 2012 for the aggressively pro-abortion Barack Obama. Why? Because moral relativism cannot be controlled. When national ministries support politicians (like Mitt Romney) who advocate some abortion, then millions of churchgoers will support candidates who advocate any abortion. That's leadership. But in the wrong direction. Being pro-life means to advocate for the right to life of the unborn. Thus those in the fourth tier reject personhood altogether and by definition therefore are not even pro-life. Please be a Tier 1 pro-lifer and only support Tier 1 leaders and groups!
