WASHINGTON— National Right to Life announced its endorsement of Senator Mike Crapo for re-election to the United States Senate in Idaho.
“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Mike Crapo for re-election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Senator Crapo’s strong pro-life voting record demonstrates his firm commitment to life.”
Senator Crapo voted for pro-life protections for unborn babies and their mothers. He opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he also opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.
Senator Crapo voted to defend the longstanding Hyde Amendment, which bars federal tax dollars from being used for abortions in many federal programs. The Hyde Amendment has saved an estimated 2.5 million lives since its passage in 1976.
Senator Crapo voted against the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, which really should be called the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” because it would enshrine abortion in federal law and policies, and it would tear down pro-life protections on the state level including parental involvement and informed consent laws.
“Idaho deserves a pro-life senator like Mike Crapo who is committed to building a culture of life,” said Tobias. “We look forward to continuing to work with Senator Crapo in the Senate to advance policies that protect unborn children and their mothers.”
