South Carolina Citizens for Life PAC Endorses Mitt Romney for President

Mitt Romney

COLUMBIA, S.C. –South Carolina Citizens for Life Political Action Committee (SCCL PAC) has joined the National Right to Life Committee Political Action Committee in endorsing Mitt Romney for President of the United States.  SCCL is South Carolina’s oldest single-issue prolife organization.

SCCL President Lisa Van Riper said, “While the primary season can often be divisive, it is time for pro-life people to come together and unite behind Mitt Romney to ensure President Barack Obama doesn’t spend another four years in the White House. We need a pro-life president who is willing to respect and defend the sanctity of human life.”

Mitt Romney :

  • has pledged to support the Hyde Amendment, which prevents certain federal funds from going to pay for abortions.
  • supports the reversal of Roe v. Wade.
  • supports reversal of ObamaCare.
  • favors efforts to prohibit abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding.
  • has promised to appoint judges who follow the Constitution.
  • Has pledged to support the conscience rights of medical professionals and religious institutions.

In stark contrast, since being elected, President Obama has implemented a series of pro-abortion provisions. He rescinded the Mexico City policy, which bars funding to organizations which provide and promote abortion overseas, strongly opposed efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and pushed a health care plan mandating the subsidization of abortions.

Mrs. Van Riper said, “Words can hardly describe how important this election is for unborn children and other human beings whose lives aren’t deemed valuable by some in our society. Electing a prolife president is priority #1 for the SCCL PAC in 2012.”
