National Right to Life: Elect Thom Tillis to the U.S. Senate

Published on

Tillis is “the best candidate to defeat pro-abortion Kay Hagan” in November

National Right to Life, the nation’s oldest and largest pro-life organization, today endorsed North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis in both the Republican primary and general elections for the U.S. Senate. In issuing the endorsement, National Right to Life praised Rep. Tillis’ outstanding pro-life leadership as Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives.

Thom Tillis has been an outspoken leader in the fight to protect innocent human life in North Carolina, and he is the only candidate with a proven record of leadership who can defeat pro-abortion Sen. Kay Hagan this fall,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

Under his leadership as Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, the legislature passed a number of measures protecting unborn children and their mothers including:

• Women’s Right to Know Act (Speaker Tillis led the effort to override Governor Perdue’s veto of the measure)

• Ethen’s Law recognizing unborn children as victims of violent crime

• Prohibiting North Carolina taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortion or to pay for insurance coverage for abortion

• Health & Safety Law – a 2013 omnibus pro-life bill that included language extending conscience protections to health care providers who oppose abortion, opting North Carolina out of abortion coverage in the federal health care exchange, prohibiting sex-selection abortions, prohibiting abortion from being covered in city and county health care plans, banning web-cam abortions, and issuing regulations of abortion clinics.

In contrast, since being elected to the U.S. Senate, Kay Hagan voted for the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”–better known as Obamacare–which provides government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion-on-demand, and will lead to the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments. Earlier this year, Hagan voted against a measure that would have protected the religious liberties of employers by protecting them from being forced to purchase health plans that cover drugs and procedures to which they have religious or moral objections.

“Speaker Thom Tillis has earned the support of all pro-life voters and he is the candidate who can defeat Kay Hagan this November,” said David N. O’Steen, Ph.D., National Right to Life executive director. “Why would any pro-lifer cast their ballot for anyone besides Thom Tillis?”
