National Right to Life Endorses Deb Fischer for Senate from Nebraska

Published on

National Right to Life is pleased to endorse pro-life state Senator Deb Fischer for election to the United States Senate from Nebraska.

“Senator Deb Fischer is a strong advocate for life,” stated Darla St. Martin, National Right to Life Co-Executive Director. “As a state senator, she voted for Nebraska’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, protecting babies who are capable of feeling pain from abortion.  Fischer supports legal protection for unborn children, and opposes government funding of abortion.”

On Tuesday, Fischer came back from a double-digit deficit just weeks before  to win with 41.1% of the vote in a six-way Republican primary.  Fischer will face pro-abortion former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey (D) in November’s general election.

In his two terms in the U.S. Senate (1989-2000), Kerrey amassed an extreme pro-abortion voting record even voting five times to keep partial-birth abortion legal. In 1999 he voted for the Harkin Amendment to endorse Roe v. Wade.

ObamaCare will be a prominent issue in the campaign. ObamaCare provides government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will promote the rationing of lifesaving treatments. Kerrey refers to it as “a step in the right direction.”

Deb Fischer opposes ObamaCare and will vote to repeal it.

Rothenberg rates this race as “Republican favored” while Cook Political Report rates it as “likely Republican.”  The seat is open due to Democratic Senator Ben Nelson’s retirement.  Senator Nelson had a mixed record on life issues.
