Janet Contreras Vs. Ed Pastor : Abortion

By Ghost32

Pro-Life Or Pro-Choice?

It’s simple enough: In Arizona CD4, conservative Janet Contreras is pro-life while liberal Ed “Pelosi Puppet Progressive” Pastor is pro-choice. Any political neophyte could have guessed that much. However, as they say, the Devil is in the details. So…a bit of a closer look at each candidate’s position on abortion, perhaps?

Why not.

Although not much investigation is required to ascertain Janet’s stance, which is straightforward: If you’re pregnant, please do bring that child into the world alive and healthy if you can. Her candidacy has been endorsed by Arizona Right To Life, and that pretty much sums it up. She’s as pro-life as Sarah Palin.

Ed Pastor, though? Now, that’s a little more complex. For one thing, he’s an avowed Roman Catholic. The Church has been strongly pro-life, anti-abortion from Day One. Last time I checked with the Pope, it still is. At www.catholic.com/library/abortion.asp, the official dissertation on abortion begins with the following words:

The Catholic Church has always condemned abortion as a grave evil. Christian writers from the first-century author of the Didache to Pope John Paul II in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (“The Gospel of Life”) have maintained that the Bible forbids abortion, just as it forbids murder.

Yet Congressman Pastor not only advocates abortion, he advocates the extreme forms of abortion. I’m more or less pro-choice myself…but not even I can stomach the idea of the following Ed Pastor Vote Match Responses:

NO on banning partial-birth abortions. (This one is definitely murder in my book.)

NO on funding for health providers who don’t provide abortion info. (Your favorite doctor doesn’t take Medicaid or Medicare patients. Why? Because he’s pro-life, refuses to provide stacks of abortion literature in his waiting room, and is therefore punished by a federal government that is perfectly willing to deny him any of your taxpayer dollars. Period.)

NO on making it a crime to harm a fetus during another crime. (Your wife is seven months pregnant with your first child when a mugger assaults her at the mall and the baby dies as a result. Wife recovers (physically). Simple assault, the baby’s death at the mugger’s hands not even a misdemeanor…according to Ed.)

Dang. How do you reconcile those two things, Congressman? Did you abandon the Roman Catholic Church? Have you been excommunicated but managed with the help of a complicit mainstream media to cover up your disgrace? I’m not judging your personal faith–God knows I’m not God–but how do you manage such blatant hypocrisy and still sleep at night?

Because I just don’t understand for one second how any man could possibly be a Roman Catholic of true faith and a believer/supporter of abortion in even the early stages of pregnancy…let alone the three horrific examples listed above.

It’s a mystery for sure.


Campaign slogans can be cool things…or they can betray the users in unforeseen ways. One of the coolest was coined by challenger Ruth McClung in Arizona CD7 after incumbent Raul Grijalva foolishly called for a boycott of our mutual home state:


You couldn’t beat that with a stick. Ed Pastor’s slogan in CD4, on the other hand? It sounds sort of okay on the surface:


Not so cool, really, now is it? Hard-left Progressives are expected to support abortion “all the way”. But that’s all about politics. Were Ed to suddenly begin practicing Truth in Advertising (don’t hold your breath), that slogan would read:


Anyone who’s so much as heard Janet Contreras speak from the podium realizes she’s real. There’s not a hypocritical bone in the lady’s body…but she does have a steel spine, will support the rights of all her constituents (even those not quite yet born)…and deserves to represent Phoenix in Congress as We the People take our country back just 13 days from now.

East Valley Tea Party Holds “Superbowl of Candidates”

Today, the East Valley Tea Party organization conducted its first “Superbowl of Candidates.” Like the Tea Party movement across the country, it was a roaring success. Plenty of candidates attended including more gubernatorial candidates than I knew were running (Tim Willis, Bruce Olsen, Steven Slaton, Ray Yount, Buz Mills, Governor Jan Brewer and Treasurer, Dean Martin). Other statewide candidates included John Huppenthal, Margaret Dugan, Ted Carpenter, Thayer Verschoor, Barbara Leff, Brenda Burns, Gary Pierce, Taj Oladiran and Congressional candidates, Janet Contreras, David Schweikert, Chris Salvino, Eric Wnuck, Easton Kelsey and Jeff Smith. County Attorney candidate, Bill Montgomery also attended.

State legislative candidates also attended including Russell Pearce, Kirk Adams, James Molina, Adam Armer, Kelly Townsend, Brett Petillo, JD Mesnard, Jeff Vance, John Fillmore and Scott Bergren.

US Senate candidates Chris Simcox and Jim Deakin rounded out the list but the biggest pleasant surprise to appear was former congressman and soon to announce US Senate candidate, J.D. Hayworth.

Hayworth was a big hit with the crowd and he was continually prompted by supporters to challenge John McCain in the Republican Primary. The recent conservative talk show host is planning to formally announce some time in the next three weeks but is raising money in what will be a challenge against McCain’s multi-million dollar political machine. Grassroots supporters are already coming out of the fields asking how to give to his campaign. The campaign website is up and running and taking donations online and the support is coming in from all over the country.

Here are a few photos from today’s event featuring JD Hayworth and Congressional candidate, Janet Contreras, whom we helped debut right here on Sonoran Alliance.
