If you had 0% and ask for 100% and only get 50%, your position has improved. When you ask for 100% the next time, your 50% is the new 0%, and the next compromise puts you even closer. Rinse and Repeat, and soon you have everything you’ve ever asked for.

The Executive Director of Athanatos Christian Ministries, Anthony Horvath, released a statement this afternoon warning pro-life advocates that their work is still not done, even if Romney is elected today.

In the statement, Horvath points out that Romney would still have to appoint a Supreme Court Justice that would be willing to overturn Roe vs. Wade and then that Justice would have to be approved by the Senate. It is unlikely that the Senate will have a Republican majority sufficient to approve such a candidate. But even if it happened, Horvath says that only puts things back to square one.

He says that in that case, "Abortion goes back to the states for their consideration and action. At present, the battle is largely centralized in Washington DC. The end of Roe vs. Wade makes 50 new battles."

Roe vs. Wade is officially known as "Jane Roe, et al. v. Henry Wade, District Attorney of Dallas County" and was decided in 1973.

In the statement, Horvath warns that the Democrat party is the party of Saul Alinksy, the author of the book "Rules for Radicals," which Horvath discusses further on his blog. Alinsky argued that 'compromise' is a weapon in the hand of the radical to get incrementally what could never be otherwise obtained.

Horvath says, "If you had 0% and ask for 100% and only get 50%, your position has improved. When you ask for 100% the next time, your 50% is the new 0%, and the next compromise puts you even closer. Rinse and Repeat, and soon you have everything you’ve ever asked for."

It is precisely through such measures, at the local, state, and Federal levels, that abortion on demand became the law of the land, says Horvath. "And this, not because of who was president, but because of what transpired in the nooks and crannies of our society."

Horvath urges greater participation at all levels of influence by those who have pro-life views and concludes that the "Moral of the story [is]: be vigilant, be principled, and be courageous."

Horvath is also the author of "We Chose Life: Why You Should Too" and a member of Lutherans For Life's national speaker's bureau. He has spoken throughout the country on the culture of death.
