Congressional Candidate Stephen Fincher, 8th District Tennessee, was endorsed by the Tennessee Right to Life on Tuesday. This is big because they are stating that the best Republican candidate for this position is Fincher. Fincher is running against Dr. Ron Kirkland, out of Jackson, Dr. George Flinn out of Memphis and chef Randy Smith out of Mercer.
If you recall I pointed out Kirkland’s weakness on this position since he stated that when it came to a rape, then the issue was between a woman and her doctor. He basically punted on life at that point. He found a place to draw a line and drew it as quickly as he could. In other words, he is for the pro-life position as long as that position does not cost him anything. That is simply someone we don’t need representing us in Washington. There are already plenty of politicians in Washington, we do not need to send one more.
Kirkland’s statement also shows he is not driven by principle, but by political expediency. He will take whatever position will get him elected. Please, let’s not vote for him. I’m sure he would be OK if we sent him to D.C., but he would be just another politician, not someone who was willing to take strong stands on the issues of life.
Fincher is just the opposite. He is standing on principles not position and his principles drive those positions. He said on the Mike Slater show that he is for life in all cases, and life begins at conception. You cannot be clearer than this. The Tennessee Right to Life endorsed Fincher because they believe he will carry the cause. In other words, he is not pro-life in name only.
Listen to him on Mike Slater’s show here. Again, Fincher believes that life begins at conception, and regardless of rape, or incest, that child is still life and deserves the protection of the state. His principles are driving this position and I agree with him and I’m glad that he is taking a strong position for life. We should vote for him, and because of them, I am giving him my endorsement.
LET IT BE KNOWN: Timothy Matters has now endorsed Steven Fincher for Congress. This is my first pubic endorsement of a candidate since starting this blog.
