National Right to Life Endorses Kansas Doctor and Congressman Roger Marshall for the U.S. Senate

Jun 1, 2020 | 2020 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON— National Right to Life, the nation’s largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide, has endorsed Dr. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) for election to the U.S. Senate.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Dr. Roger Marshall for election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “As a pro-life obstetrician/gynecologist, Dr. Marshall knows the value of each human life and has an exemplary record showing his leadership on this issue.”

As a member of Congress, Dr. Marshall voted pro-life 20 out of 20 times. He co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation would protect unborn children at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

Dr. Marshall co-sponsored and voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. This Act would require that a baby born alive during an abortion be afforded the same degree of care that would apply to any other child delivered at the same gestational age.

Dr. Marshall also voted numerous times against using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

“As an OB/GYN, Dr. Marshall has delivered over five thousand babies and is a national leader for pro-life legislation as a Congressman from the First Congressional District of Kansas,” said Melissa Leach, on behalf of Kansans for Life PAC. “His candidacy gives pro-lifers the best chance of defeating abortion fanatic Barbara Bollier.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
