Why we must not relent in protecting and defending all life at all ages.

The ultimate purpose of legitimate government is to defend life, to guard it as a precious gift bestowed upon us by God. To deprive a person of their life--be it an elderly person in a nursing home, a severely disabled citizen, or a child in the womb--is to take away their most basic, natural, God-given right.

In the Declaration of Independence, our nation’s Founding Fathers designated life as one of the self-evident rights with which all men are created.

Since the infamous 1973 Supreme Court Decision in Roe v. Wade, the belief in the sanctity of life continues to deteriorate in our nation. Our elected officials no longer respect life as a priceless and sacred right, believing that the quality of the life lived is more important than the sanctity of all life. Abortion is legal in every state, legalized euthanasia is becoming an ever-increasing threat, and embryonic stem-cell research is a blatant assault not only on basic morality, but also professional ethics. The current national Administration has sought to overrule laws that protect medical professionals from acting against their consciences, and that prohibit the United States from funding abortion overseas. Our nation and our leaders have lost respect for our Creator and His most precious gift to mankind.

We damage ourselves as a people by not valuing this gift. To carelessly cast aside the sanctity of life is to destroy morality, weaken the family, and ultimately impair our state and our nation. It is not the government’s responsibility to determine which lives are worth living and which are not. This is why it is essential that we relentlessly defend the lives of all Hoosiers at all ages.

Timothy Wesco with his niece Hannah
Timothy Wesco believes that everything that we can do on the state level must be done to protect the unborn. Every restriction, every ordinance must be enacted and enforced. Timothy will support legislation to broaden protection for unborn Hoosiers and to fully prohibit abortion except to save the life of the mother only. He believes that it is imperative to make mothers fully aware of the proven physical and emotional dangers of abortion. Before an abortion, a woman must be provided with written information stating that life begins at conception and that the baby in her womb can indeed feel pain. Every mother must have access to information and the necessary support that will encourage her to choose life. Timothy will provide strong leadership in pursuing legislation to keep euthanasia illegal in the state of Indiana, and to ban embryonic stem-cell research. Now is the time to stand for all life.

Why Indiana Must Constitutionally Protect Marriage

Vibrant and thriving families are what create a strong country. America’s national greatness is a reflection of her history of committed family life. When a mom and a dad raise their children, teaching and instilling in them the value and indispensable necessity of those transcendent “self-evident truths” spoken of in the Declaration of Independence, they are preserving all that America stands for and creating the next generation of American patriots. Created and ordained by God Himself, marriage matters. It must be defended no matter what the cost because the future of our state and our country depend upon it.

Today, here in Indiana and across America, the very definition of what makes a family is being challenged. In May of 2008, the California Supreme Court issued a decision to strike down California’s citizen-passed law to keep marriage between one man and one woman. In doing so, they not only defied state law, but also the will of the people of California. In April of 2009, the Supreme Court of Iowa followed in the California Supreme Court’s footsteps. The Iowa Supreme Court ruled 7-0 to overturn the state’s Defense of Marriage Act. These incidents serve as an ominous caveat of what could very feasibly happen all across America, including here in Indiana.

In an environment of ever-increasing judicial activism, a law alone is no longer sufficient to protect against judicial intrusion. This is why the citizens of over thirty states have now protected marriage in their constitutions. If given the honor of representing the people of the 21st House District of Indiana, Timothy Wesco will lead in the effort to make Indiana the next state to constitutionally protect marriage. Timothy believes that unless we act now, Indiana will continue to be left vulnerable to the whims of judges seeking to conduct social experiments with devastating consequences.

If we intend to ensure the continuing viability of the policies that are embedded in our state’s statutory laws protecting marriage, we must amend our constitution to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

Since 2004, the Indiana Senate has passed a marriage amendment multiple times, but repeatedly, the measure has failed to make it through the House of Representatives. We cannot afford to give in now. History tells us that persistence prevails. We must re-introduce this amendment again, and again, and again, until we prevail, because marriage matters.

Because the future of Indiana depends on her vibrant family life, the future of Indiana is hinging right now on how our leaders respond to attempts which are seeking to turn marriage into something it was never meant to be, nor can ever successfully be. Timothy Wesco is committed to leading this cause forward in Indianapolis.
