“I think that life starts at conception, but you don’t have to build a platform off that.”
— Charles Lollar, chairman of the Charles County Republican Central Committee in Maryland
There are practical consequences of such a belief that have the potential, if enacted, to radically restrict Americans’ liberty. Mr. Lollar has recently declared his intention to run for Congress in Maryland’s 5th District, hoisting a Bible into the air in public appearances. It is reasonable for Marylanders to ask:
If the Bible is an essential part of Charles Lollar’s public presentation, and if Charles Lollar believes “life starts at conception,” what role will that Bible and that belief play in Lollar’s policy actions? What is the relationship between what Lollar would place on his platform as a candidate and what Lollar would attempt to accomplish as a congressman?
Given Charles Lollar’s public presentations of himself, it would be reasonable for him to provide an answer.
