National Right to Life and Kentucky Right to Life Decry Smear Campaign Against Senator Mitch McConnell

WASHINGTON — A mailer designed to look like an official document from Kentucky Right to Life reportedly endorsing the Libertarian candidate was received in some Kentucky homes this week.

The mailer implied that Senator Mitch McConnell supports abortion.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Kentucky Right to Life did not create the flyer, endorse the flyer, or provide any artwork for the flyer. Kentucky Right to Life was unaware of the flyer or its content.

“This is a false and fabricated attack on Senator Mitch McConnell,” said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. “He has received a 100 percent pro-life rating from National Right to Life and was endorsed by both National Right to Life and Kentucky Right to Life.”

“Senator McConnell has proved to be a champion for the right to life, from protecting the unborn child to people with disabilities, he has shown compassion for the most vulnerable among us,” said Diana Maldonado, president of Kentucky Right to Life.

Senator McConnell’s record is consistently pro-life:

*Senator McConnell co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that would protect unborn children at 20 weeks—a point at which an unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when she is being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

*Senator McConnell co-sponsored and voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that 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 McConnell has voted numerous times against using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers. Senator McConnell has also fought tirelessly to confirm hundreds of federal judges to the bench, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. 

“Senator McConnell has worked diligently to see that all innocent human life is protected by law 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 Senator McConnell’s re-election and working with him to continue our work in protecting the most vulnerable among us.”

National Right to Life endorsed Senator McConnell in May of this year. Kentucky Right to Life endorsed the Senator in September in conjunction with endorsements for all statewide races.
