    So, Ronald Reagan, Donald Trump, and Sandy Pensler, changed their belief on abortion from decades prior to pro-life, which is more accurately stated as anti-abortion because clearly, Reagan and Trump, were/are more than willing to bomb the ever-loving-shit out of whomever is a threat to Americans. As far as U.S. Senate candidates go, both Republicans are anti-abortion, and the one who perpetually campaigns in his "Apache Fighter Pilot" uniform is not "100% Pro-Life."

    So, the RLM-PAC is what single-issue bumpkins still hang their hats on? Great way to lose a battle.

    "One of the tenants of pro-life activists is to accept converts with open arms because a majority of the country will be needed to win this important fight."

    It's as if RLM-PAC rhetoric invites frauds within their own group.
