National Right to Life Political Committees will support Sen. Ted Cruz in upcoming primaries

Published on

Meeting in Arlington, Virginia, the National Right to Life Board of Directors Saturday voted to support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the upcoming Republican presidential primaries, which begin tomorrow in Wisconsin.

In the week preceding the Board’s vote, Donald Trump first said on Wednesday that were abortion illegal he would “punish” women who had aborted. He said later the same day he wouldn’t punish these women.

Then, on Friday in a clip from an interview with “Face the Nation” moderator John Dickerson that would air Sunday, Trump said, “The laws are set now on abortion and that’s the way they’re going to remain until they’re changed,” adding, “At this moment, the laws are set and I think we have to leave it that way.”

Then, on Friday, after the clip aired, the Trump campaign issued another statement:

“Mr. Trump gave an accurate account of the law as it is today and made clear it must stay that way now — until he is president,” it read. “Then he will change the law through his judicial appointments and allow the states to protect the unborn. There is nothing new or different here.”

As reported in NRL News Today, Mr. Trump has said Planned Parenthood does “some good work” but would defund it.

An average of seven recent national political polls shows that Mr. Trump trails Hillary Clinton by 11.2%.

In those same seven polls, Sen. Cruz trails Mrs. Clinton by an average of 3%.

National Right to Life believes Sen. Cruz is the only candidate for president who has always been pro-life, who has a 100% pro-life voting record with National Right to Life, who can win the Republican nomination, and who can defeat pro-abortion Hillary Clinton in November.
