VA CANDIDATE NICK BELL TAKES ON INFANTICIDE PROPONENTS

Lord, thank you for Nick Bell and for putting him exactly where he is for such a time as this. Awaken Your people to get out and vote their values so that candidates like Nick can make a difference in our government.

As luck would have it, the 2019 election in Virginia for the House of Delegates and the state Senate has provided Republican candidates the opportunity to take advantage of their opposition to abortion.

Democrats have expanded their efforts to eliminate restrictions on abortion. Gov. Ralph Northam and Del. Kathy Tran, for example, have endorsed abortions up to the moment of birth—or perhaps even afterwards.

As every poll on abortion shows, these are unpopular positions. Abortions in the third trimester of pregnancy are widely seen as extreme. Yet Democrats have allowed this powerful—and often emotional—issue to be used against them in the November 5 election. And they appear to be unconcerned about any political consequences.

The fallout, sadly, may be minimal. In the legislature, Republicans have an impressive record of enacting restrictions on “abortion rights.” But in the campaign, most GOP candidates have taken a pass, acting as if they fear a backlash from attacking even late-term abortions.

There’s one vigorous exception: Nicholas Bell, running in Fairfax County’s Annandale and Springfield communities in northern Virginia. He’s an important exception for three reasons. One, he’s a compelling and knowledgeable opponent of abortion. Two, his Democratic opponent is Vivian Watts, 79, who has been the leading pro-abortion extremist in the Virginia legislature for two decades.

Third, although it’s Bell’s first bid for elective office, he quickly emerged as a likeable candidate and effective campaigner. And he’s media savvy. Bell has appeared repeatedly on talk radio and enlisted prominent national Republicans to do taped calls to voters. They include Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and former governor Chris Christie of New Jersey.

Bell has also raised more money than Watts or any of her earlier opponents—enough for him to pay for mass mailings in the district. He doesn’t mince about Watts. She “thinks someone who kills a pregnant woman and her child should only be charged with one crime, not two [and} and that forcing a woman to have an abortion is NOT a crime,” he says in a mailing focused on abortion.

Watching videos of Northam and Tran in which they discussed efforts to end restrictions on abortion prompted him to run, Bell told me. Both suggested the proposed law they supported “allowed for infanticide after the baby was delivered,” according to the Washington Times.

“I think the Democrats have gone so far extreme that we have got to fight back,” he said in an interview with the Washington Times. ”If you aren’t going to defend to life for babies after birth, how are you going to defend other rights? The right to life is the most fundamental.”

Bell says he learned to “think outside the box” in creating a campaign strategy. By elevating the abortion issue, he’s taken a surprising tack. Virginia has never been known as a strong anti-abortion state. Only in recent years have Republican succeeded in enacting significant pro-life measures.

He has refused to take corporate contributions, although most Republican and Democratic candidates do. This allows him to criticize Watts for her longtime habit of accepting such contributions. And Bell opposes payday loans, a practice Republicans rarely attack. His campaign slogan is “The People’s Interests, Not the Special Interests.”

In other words, Bell’s campaign does not resemble a standard Republican one—quite the contrary. He would do away with highway tolls, which are increasingly being imposed in Virginia. Tolls have become a populist issue, not a partisan one.

For all his progress as a candidate, Bell is still an underdog against Watt. Given her years as a delegate, she has probably gained as much name recognition as a state delegate can. She has done practically nothing, such as meet Bell in a public debate, to make Bell’s candidacy known to voters before they see his name on the ballot next Tuesday.

That is not likely to be the last time voters learn of a Bell candidacy. Having shown himself to be an attractive candidate, he’s laid the groundwork for future campaigns. Republican leaders are bound to have noticed.

  1. My daughter was raped and conceived and carried that precious little baby to birth where so sadly he was stillborn. I thank GOD for my daughter’s courage and bravery–it was needed as so many opposed giving life to a baby conceived in such an awful situation. However, we dressed that little stillborn baby in beautiful baby clothes, his casket was lined with satin, and we gave him a proper burial. I visit his little grave and leave flowers and thank GOD for my daughter’s courage! She is not haunted by the memory of an abortion. She is not haunted by giving consent to having the little one destroyed or his body parts sold! GOD have mercy on those people who counsel girls and women to have an abortion–in their hearts they know it is wrong. GOD help those women and girls to make the right choice for the baby who would choose to live! While we wept over the attack on my daughter, and wept over the death of the sweet little innocent baby, we shall one day rejoice in seeing him in Heaven. Thanks be to GOD!

  2. LORD, it is you who raise up and bring down according to Your Word and Will. In this election, please elevate those who will adhere to your laws and bring down those who work against your laws and will. You alone know the hearts of all men, and we cry to you for justice and righteousness to reign in our country and government–in our laws and in our officials. May the fruitless deeds of darkness be exposed, and may our laws and elected officials be full of goodness, righteousness, and truth. I pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ for His glory and that we his people might dwell in peace. Amen.

    1. Agreeing in prayer with you Brenda for Bell to be elected! Please Lord open the people’s eyes to see that abortion is murder and not vote for anyone who is pro-
      abortion. In Jesus name amen
