“Now choose Life, so that you and your seed may live ….” — Deuteronomy 30:19
Idaho Chooses Life was founded as a political action committee in 1996 to support pro-Life candidates for public office and to lobby for preborn children at the Idaho Legislature. It remains the only social conservative PAC registered in Idaho.
It is our firm belief that every candidate for public office ought to have a pro-Life value system. Respect for the sanctity of human life is a foundational principle of Western Civilization. Without a basic appreciation of the human being’s value—no person is qualified to hold public power over others. We seek to support the work of other pro-Life organizations — whether in the Legislature, in pregnancy centers staffed by dedicated volunteers around the state or in our churches. We look with hope for the day when Roe v. Wade is no longer the law of land; when every child is welcomed into the human family.
A Record of Accomplishment
Since 1998, Idaho Chooses Life has battled to secure a strong Parental Consent Law. For nearly four years, this law helped drive down teenage abortion rates by some 30%. But liberals on the federal bench have fought just as hard to strip our daughters of this vital protection. We will continue the fight until the rights of parents and preborn children are secure!
Idaho Chooses Life won a campaign to shut-off public funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization which poses a grave threat to our children.
Several years ago we led efforts to pass a law which ended tax-funding of abortions— and declares that the public policy of Idaho is to prefer live childbirth over abortion.
Idaho Chooses Life has aggressively pressed the Legislature and Executive Branch to provide women and girls with information about the risks and options to abortion. Real progress has been made and we are committed to reaching out a helping hand to women in need.
Important progress for Idaho’s prenatal citizens was gained when the Legislature passed “Noah’s Law” — which made it a felony for third parties to harm or kill a child in the womb.
