WASHINGTON — National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Michelle Fischbach (R) for election to the U.S. House of Representatives to represent the 7th Congressional District of Minnesota.

Michelle Fischbach is a proven and accomplished pro-life leader with a 100% lifetime pro-life voting record in the Minnesota State Senate. During her time in the legislature, she cast 149 out of 149 possible pro-life votes. For more than two decades, she has worked to advance pro-life legislation, authoring or co-sponsoring every major pro-life bill in Minnesota. As president of the Minnesota State Senate, she also took a leadership role in promoting pro-life legislation.

“Pro-lifers in Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District deserve a pro-life representative who will represent their values 100% of the time,” stated Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Michelle Fischbach has been tireless in her commitment to the right to life and in her defense of unborn children and their mothers. She will be a valued ally in the fight for unborn children in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

Unfortunately, Rep. Collin Peterson (D) does not have a 100% pro-life voting record. He even voted to overturn President Trump’s pro-life policy of not allowing U.S. taxpayer dollars to be used to fund overseas organizations that perform or promote abortion.

“Michelle Fischbach is a stalwart pro-lifer who will vote 100% pro-life and oppose taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion-providers,” stated Karen Cross, political director for National Right to Life. “She will also vote to restore pro-life leadership to the U.S. House.”

All voters in the 7th Congressional District who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to send Michelle Fischbach to the U.S. House.

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.
