National Right to Life endorses Karin Housley in Minnesota’s Senate Special Election

Published on

The National Right to Life Committee has announced its endorsement of pro-life candidate Karin Housley in Minnesota’s Senate special election. Her opponent will be pro-abortion candidate Tina Smith, who was appointed by Governor Mark Dayton following the resignation of pro-abortion Senator Al Franken.

I am pleased to be with you today in the great state of Minnesota. I have the honour to announce that National Right to Life has endorsed Karin Housley for U.S. Senate in this November’s special election.

There is a stark contrast between Karin Housley and Tina Smith, who was appointed by Governor Mark Dayton to fill an open seat. Karin Housley supports legal protections for unborn children, while Tina Smith supports abortion for any reason up to birth.

Karin Housley supports the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – legislation that would protect unborn children by banning abortion after 20 weeks, a point at which the unborn child is capable of feeling great pain when killed by dismemberment or other late-term abortion methods.

Tina Smith voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 2311, 1/19/18, Roll Call No. 25) in the US Senate. As a former lobbyist and vice president of the Minnesota affiliate of Planned Parenthood, Tina Smith supports giving hundreds of millions of your tax dollars to the nation’s largest abortion provider.

While Tina Smith supports the use of tax dollars to fund abortions, Karin Housley does not. I was raised in the neighbouring state of North Dakota, where both North Dakotans and Minnesotans hold a deep respect for innocent human life. It is likely that during the forthcoming campaign, Tina Smith will attempt to obfuscate the issue of abortion, claiming that she supports women’s health and reproductive choice.

It is unlikely that Ms Smith will be forthcoming with the electorate regarding her true position on the matter. It is evident that she will do everything in her power to ensure that the ability to terminate an unborn child for any reason throughout the entirety of pregnancy remains legal.

Those who believe that women should be provided with information regarding abortion, potential complications and available alternatives will find that Ms Smith does not align with their views and will not represent their interests.

If one subscribes to the view that parents should be informed when their minor daughter seeks an abortion, it is evident that Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent such individuals.

A review of 108 global studies on the relationship between abortion and breast cancer revealed that 73% of the studies indicated an increased risk of breast cancer in women who have undergone induced abortion. If you believe that women should be informed of the potential increased risk of breast cancer following an abortion, Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent your interests.

If you believe that abortion facilities should be required to adhere to the same health and safety standards as ambulatory surgical centres, Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent you.

If you believe that unborn babies who have developed to the point where they can feel pain, at least by 20 weeks gestation, should be protected from abortion, Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent you.

If one believes that a preborn child should not be subjected to the excruciating pain of having her limbs torn off in a dismemberment abortion, Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent that individual.

If you oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortions in the United States and abroad, Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent you.

If one believes that health care providers and others should not be compelled to participate in the violent act of terminating the life of an unborn child, Tina Smith does not, and will not, represent you.

Karin Housley’s stance on the sanctity of life aligns with the values of Minnesota’s electorate. She will support legislation that is in accordance with the values of the electorate.

It is my recommendation that all eligible voters in Minnesota cast their ballots in favour of electing Karin Housley to the United States Senate.
