National Right to Life Endorses South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham for Re-Election

WASHINGTON, D.C.— National Right to Life, the nation’s largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide, has endorsed Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for re-election.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Senator Lindsey Graham for re-election,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Senator Graham has championed the right to life throughout his career and has diligently worked to see that all innocent human life is protected.”

Senator Graham is the lead sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation to protect unborn children at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

Senator Graham also co-sponsored and voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require that a baby born alive during an abortion must be afforded the same degree of care that would apply to any other child at the same gestational age.

Senator Graham also opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion and opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

“Senator Graham is committed to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Senate,” said Tobias. “We look forward to continuing our important work with Senator Graham to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family.”
