WASHINGTON — 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 Cory Gardner (R-CO) for re-election.
“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Senator Cory Gardner for re-election,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Senator Gardner earned a 100% pro-life voting record in his first senate term. He has supported compassionate proposals to safeguard unborn children and their mothers from the pain of abortion.”
Senator Gardner voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation would protect unborn children 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.
Senator Gardner voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. This Act would require that a baby born alive during an abortion be afforded the same degree of care that would apply to any other child delivered at the same gestational age.
Senator Gardner voted numerous times against using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.
Senator Gardner voted to confirm hundreds of federal judges to the bench who pledge to interpret the Constitution according to its text, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
By contrast, his opponent, former Governor John Hickenlooper, supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason, and he supports taxpayer funding for abortion.
Hickenlooper supports repeal of the life-saving Hyde Amendment. He also opposed the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Senator Gardner has worked to see that all innocent human life is protected, and he 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 Gardner to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family.”
