January is a very special month for those of us of Confederate Heritage. It is the month that our two greatest military heroes were born, Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. Not only do we pay tribute to those two Southern greats, but all of our Confederate ancestors and the great and good principles for which they fought. In spite of what our politically correct culture tells us about the causes of the War For Southern Independence, we know the truth is that they were fighting to rescue us, their descendants, from overpowering, centralized government, that makes a mockery of the founding principles of the United States -- which were limited, constitutional government where the real political power was in the state and local governments where the people have the most control.     This "Principle of Confederacy" was what the Founding Fathers gave us in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence and in 1789 with the U.S. Constitution. In fact, if you read the writings of the Founders, you'll see that they frequently refer to the U.S. as a Confederacy. They knew the dangers of highly centralized government, which eventually descends into some form of totalitarian dictatorship. The Confederate Constitution of  1861 preserved those founding principles of 1776 and 1789. That's why Lee, Jackson, Davis and our Confederate ancestors were willing to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.      And let us not forget the noble women of the South when we are celebrating Lee and Jackson. Without the self-sacrificing support of Confederate women, the men would not have lasted very long in the field. Just as the men suffered in camp, on the march and in battle, so did the women who kept home and family together during those very trying  times.
     While overwhelming numbers and resources prevailed for the North, the principles of Confederacy for which the South fought, are still very much alive and well in the political debates of modern America. In this Confederate Heroes Month, let pay tribute to our noble ancestors and the cause for which they fought.

There's no doubt about it. The Confederate South is the most pro-life part of the nation. Without the Confederate South, the federal government would be much more pro-abortion than it is already. But at least the Confederate South is saving as many unborn babies as it legally can under the horrendous Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, which forces the evil practice of abortion on all 50 U.S. states.

It is a shame that Louisiana, a pro-life  Confederate state, is forced to allow this diabolical practice. It is also a shame that it is represented in the U.S. Senate by a pro-abortion senator, Mary Landrieu, Democrat. Here is the response from the Louisiana Right To Life organization to Landrieu's latest pro-abortion vote in the federal senate on the so-called health care bill:

LA Right to Life Releases Newspaper Ads Reminding
Senator Landrieu: Abortion is NOT Health Care
Louisiana Right to Life Urges Senator Landrieu to oppose “cloture” on H.R. 3590.
Baton Rouge, LA ‐‐ In conjunction with Louisiana Family Forum Action and the Acadiana Right to Life Committee, Louisiana Right to Life has published half‐page ads in three prominent
Louisiana newspapers.  The ads call attention to Senator Mary Landrieu’s recent vote in favor of abortion funding and urge Senator Landrieu to oppose the vote on “cloture” on H.R. 3590.

The half‐page ad will run in The Advocate on Thursday and the Times Picayune and Lafayette’s The Advertiser on Friday.  Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of the Louisiana Right to Life
Federation, made the following comment after the releasing the ads:

“Senator Landrieu has asserted in the defense of her vote against the Nelson Amendment that pro‐lifers manufactured the issue of abortion in order to ”scuttle” health care reform.  However,
this ad reminds Senator Landrieu, and Louisiana, that we believe abortion is not health care, and without the Nelson Amendment, the Senate health care bill will authorize government
funding of abortion.”

“We hope Senator Landrieu stands for Louisiana values by opposing ”cloture” on H.R. 3590,” Clapper concluded. 

Louisiana Right to Life Federation (LARTL), established in 1970, works through education and legislation to restore the right to life in Louisiana by opposing abortion, euthanasia, and other life destroying actions.
