I spoke with a representative of Dayton Right to Life yesterday about their PAC, and was disappointed to learn that they are not using the term “consistent life ethic” the way we use it. They are using it to refer to opposition to abortion, embryo-destructive stem cell research, and euthanasia.
There should be a consistent life ethic PAC, though. (Well, we should have publicly financed elections, but that’s another story.) There used to be one called JustLife PAC, but that hasn’t existed for at least ten years. These days, though, there are ways to raise money for your favorite candidates without forming a full-fledged PAC. More in the next post.
