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 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for re-election.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Senator Mitch McConnell for re-election,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Senator McConnell has had an exemplary 100% pro-life voting record throughout his senate term. He has provided extraordinary pro-life leadership in the U.S. Senate and throughout his career.”

Senator McConnell co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection ActThis 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.

Senator McConnell co-sponsored and voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection ActThis 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.

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

Senator McConnell has also fought tirelessly to confirm hundreds of federal judges to the bench, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

“Senator McConnell has diligently worked to see that all innocent human life is protected and he is committed to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Senate,” said Tobias. “We look forward to continuing our important work with Majority Leader McConnell to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family.”

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.
