WASHINGTON –National Right to Life has endorsed pro-life Rep. Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate election. Barletta will challenge pro-abortion Sen. Bob Casey in November.
“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Lou Barletta, whose position on life reflects the true values of Pennsylvania’s voters,” said Carol Tobias, National Right to Life president. “There is a stark contrast between Lou Barletta, who supports legal protection for unborn children, and Bob Casey, who has repeatedly voted to give hundreds of millions of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, which performs about one out of every three abortions in America. Bob Casey is not his father.”
Lou Barletta co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – legislation to protect unborn children by prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.
Barletta is challenging Sen. Bob Casey (D) who consistently votes against the pro-life position on abortion. Bob Casey has a dismal 20 percent pro-life voting record in the 115th Congress.
Rep. Lou Barletta’s pro-life record contrasts greatly with Casey’s. Lou Barletta has a 100% pro-life voting record throughout his years of service in Congress. Barletta opposes abortion on demand, and he opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion.
