Indiana Right to Life PAC and National Right to Life Endorse Richard Mourdock for U.S. Senate
WASHINGTON – Today, National Right to Life and Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee (PAC) announced their endorsement of Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock for election to the U.S. Senate from the state of Indiana.
“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Richard Mourdock. He is a strong advocate for life and will protect the most vulnerable among us,” said Karen Cross, National Right to Life Political Director. “We applaud Richard Mourdock’s pledge to repeal Obamacare. His opponent, Congressman Joe Donnelly, betrayed pro-lifers across Indiana when he voted to enact President Obama’s pro-abortion, pro-rationing health care law.”
“Richard Mourdock is needed in the U.S. Senate to reverse the abortion-expanding and rationing effects of that law,” Cross continued.
Obamacare will provide government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will lead to the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments.
“Hoosiers can count on Richard Mourdock to defend innocent human life,” said Mike Fichter, Chairman of Indiana Right to Life PAC. “We need a pro-life majority in Congress now more than ever in order to reverse the detrimental effects of Obamacare. Indiana Right to Life PAC is proud to join with National Right to Life in endorsing our next pro-life Senator from Indiana, Richard Mourdock.”
Indiana Right to Life PAC works to elect pro-life candidates to public office for the purpose of enacting public policy that protects the right to life of all persons, including the unborn. Indiana Right to Life PAC believes that the issue of life is paramount to all other issues because without the right to life, all other freedoms are without meaning. Indiana Right to Life PAC endorses candidates only if they indicate a commitment to pro-life positions on a candidate survey.
Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
