MONTGOMERY, Ala. — A candidate for the attorney general of Alabama outlined in a recent online video that he believes that those who murder unborn children should be “prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Sam McLure, the founder of The Adoption Law Firm, which seeks to place orphaned children in loving homes, made the declaration outside of Reproductive Health Services in the state capital of Montgomery.
“Since 1973, the federal government has said to the states that you can’t protect children from murder. We’re going to tie your hands,” he lamented. “And today, under the protection of law, you’ve got places like this in Montgomery, Alabama, just a few blocks from the governor’s mansion.”
McLure said abortion facilities deceive young couples into thinking that murdering their child is the answer, when that child could instead be safely placed for adoption.
“Somebody’s profiting from killing babies here today, on average about $500 per child,” he noted. “[But] a safer procedure can happen. Adoptive parents are waiting in line to adopt children.”
McLure, who is a registered Republican, then declared that those who kill children must be prosecuted.
“We need an attorney general that will prosecute places like this to the fullest extent of the law,” he said. “People that profit from killing children need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
“I’m asking you to vote for me for Alabama attorney general because I want to eradicate places like this,” McLure continued. “It’s intolerable that places like this still operate in Alabama.”
McLure also posted a photograph of the abortionist at the facility to his Facebook page, writing on Sept. 2, “This woman killed babies on Friday in Montgomery. Can anyone publicly defend why she should not be prosecuted for murder?”
Last month, McLure spoke at a pro-life rally in Tuscaloosa, during which he and others were continually drowned out by abortion supporters who loudly chanted sayings about “women’s rights,” “back alleys” and “not the Church, not the state, women must decide their fate.”
“We need to put people in office at all levels of government who will fight for children in the womb,” he said. “If you were a child in the womb and you saw a scalpel coming for you, what would you want the attorney general of Alabama to do? What would you want an elected official at every level in Alabama to do? The answer is to do everything in their power to save you. The state of Alabama needs to rise up and speak for the weak.”
According to his biography, McLure and his wife are themselves adoptive parents, adopting their son Jacob out of the foster system in Hungary. His life’s work as an attorney has since been focused on being a voice for orphaned and abused children, and he has also helped to advocate for legislation pertaining to protecting the unborn, reforming foster care and ensuring religious liberty.
“Sam’s passion to protect children in foster care, children at risk of abortion, reform the criminal justice system, and prosecute greedy politicos can be summarized in four words: speak for the weak,” McLure’s biography reads.
He is additionally a supporter of “Ten Commandments Judge” Roy Moore, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat to replace Jeff Sessions.
