National Right to Life Endorses Henry McMaster for South Carolina Governor and Alan Wilson for South Carolina Attorney General

WASHINGTON— National Right to Life and South Carolina Citizens for Life Action (SCCL-Action) announced their joint endorsement of Henry McMaster for re-election for South Carolina Governor and Alan Wilson for South Carolina Attorney General.

“Henry McMaster and Alan Wilson have earned the endorsement of National Right to Life in recognition of their principled leadership on behalf of unborn children and their mothers,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Governor McMaster and Attorney General Wilson have delivered on their promises to protect life in South Carolina.”

Governor McMaster signed several important pro-life bills into law, including the South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act, which extends legal protection to unborn children when a heartbeat can be detected. Governor McMaster opposes taxpayer funding of abortion and signed an executive order to prevent South Carolinians’ tax dollars from being used to fund abortion providers.  

In contrast, McMaster’s Democrat opponent Joe Cunningham supports a policy of abortion on demand for any reason until birth, and he would use South Carolina tax dollars to pay for it. Cunningham is too extreme for South Carolina.

Attorney General Wilson faithfully defended the laws passed by the people of South Carolina through their elected representatives. Most recently, his leadership was integral to the implementation of the South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act. Wilson is running unopposed in the general election.

“South Carolina Citizens for Life Action is pleased to endorse our stalwart pro-life incumbents Governor Henry McMaster and Attorney General Alan Wilson,” said Holly Gatling, CEO of SCCL-Action. “Their leadership has been invaluable to the pro-life cause in South Carolina, and we look forward to four more years of their pro-life service to the people.”
