I was disturbed and disgusted (Thursday), to see Kevin McCarthy, Minority Leader of the House of Representatives on television objecting to the Alabama Abortion Legislation because it did NOT provide an EXCEPTION for cases of rape and incest. His position was not only personal, but was presented as Republican opposition to the Alabama Legislation.

McCarthy claimed to be pro-life, but stated that, in his political career, he had always advocated EXCEPTIONS in abortion legislation to permit the killing of babies produced by rape or incest.

I am 100% Pro-Life and true Pro-Life people, object to abortion, because it is the taking of an innocent human life. We believe religiously and ethically that life begins at conception.

We believe legally, that persons have all of the protections of the Constitution and the Law from the moment of conception. As such, it follows that all babies must be protected by our
society. Babies created in an act of incest or rape, are absolutely entitled to the same protections from our civilization as babies created in any other way. It is logically impossible, to say that you believe that babies are created at conception and are entitled to the same rights of any other person, but that you also believe that there should be a right of mothers to kill babies created in incest or rape.

We all understand how difficult this issue is and the anguish created for a woman who carries a child created in rape and incest, but we cannot ever vary from the standard that every human being, regardless of its age, race or sex is entitled to the same protection from our civilization. The mutual commitment of civilized people, to protect other individuals, is the core value of Western Civilization and Christianity. This is a standard that we must protect and defend.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy needs to put politics aside, and decide whether or not HE believes that human life is created at conception. If he does, he cannot endorse the murder of innocent children and he should not represent the Republican Party in taking that Pro-Abortion position.

He was an active supporter of Ronald Reagan in 1976 and 1980 and was a surrogate speaker for Reagan during this period. Mr. Hewes politics can only be described as electric. His positions on individual issues defy holding him as a liberal or conservative. According to Hewes, the core of his political belief structure flows from his Christian faith. He is deeply committed to the rights and responsibilities of the individual and at the same time is committed to protecting and caring for the weak and vulnerable. Mr. Hewes is equally committed to the right to life of all human beings. He opposes the death penalty and is a defender of the Right to Life of unborn children.

After a decade of devoting himself to business and charitable activity, Mr. Hewes changed his registration from Republican to Democrat in 2004. He states that his strong opposition to the war in Iraq and to the degradation of civil rights that flowed from the war on terror made it impossible for him to remain a Republican.
