Peggy Noonan, Opinion writer for the WSJ, wrote these words concerning the debate between Mike Pence, Republican VP candidate and Tim Kaine, Democrat VP candidate.
"Mr. Pence too claimed his faith “is at the very heart of who I am.” His issue was not the death penalty - but abortion. He is pro-life and ran as such from the start of his career. Why? “I would tell you that for me the sanc-tity of life proceeds out of the belief [in] that ancient principle . . . where God says, ‘Be-fore you were formed in the womb, I knew you.’ ” He was saying God is real, and God made human life, so it is sacred: “It all for me begins with cherishing the dignity, the worth, the value of every human life.”
I rarely hear politi-cians, even pro-life ones, talk like that. It was startling, and lovely."
