Press release from the New York State Right to Life Political Action Committee:
The New York State Right to Life Committee PAC is supporting Donald Trump for President of the United States in the 2016 election.
Mr. Trump has met the criteria of the PAC on the life issues and he is running a serious campaign.
He has also said he will appoint prolife judges to the Supreme Court and will not approve funding for Planned Parenthood as long as they are in the abortion business.
His opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton is a strong proponent of abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. She supports Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, and encourages efforts at the United Nations to make abortion a fundamental human right throughout the world..
In an article that appeared in the Washington Examiner a few months ago, Donald Trump said, “The next president must follow those principles that work best and that reinforce the reverence Americans hold for life. . . . it is by preserving our culture of life that we will Make America Great Again.”
What?? Heaven help us!
From the Daily Caller, online news publication:
“At a campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, Monday, [Republican presidential candidate] Chris Christie said that abortion “can be an act of self-defense” and explained how that belief can still be consistent with a pro-life stance.“
Update (2/10/16): Chris Christie has dropped out of the presidential race.
From the prolife lobbying group, Susan B. Anthony List:
I think you’ll also be interested in reading this letter Marjorie [Dannenfelser, president of SBA List] sent to all Republican presidential campaigns. As you may have seen in the news, some campaigns and their supporters have been attacking Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio for supposedly being “too pro-life” to win. Marjorie has called for an immediate end to these outrageous attacks – which are essentially the talking points of Planned Parenthood!
As Marjorie explains in the letter, “an attack on [these] candidates’ pro-life positions is an attack on the pro-life movement as a whole.” (I encourage you to read the letter linked above. You can also read stories about the matter from Politico, CNN, and The Weekly Standard).
WASHINGTON – With the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary just days away, National Right to Life is pleased that every major Republican presidential candidate has taken a pro-life position. (National Right to Life News Today).
Unfortunately, not so the Democrats.
