National Right to Life Endorses Rand Paul in Kentucky Senate Race

May 11, 2022 | 2022 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON— National Right to Life announced its endorsement of Senator Rand Paul for re-election to the United States Senate in Kentucky.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Rand Paul for re-election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Senator Paul is a committed advocate for the right to life of all Americans, born and unborn.”   

Senator Paul voted for pro-life protections for unborn babies and their mothers. He opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he also opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

Senator Paul voted to defend the longstanding Hyde Amendment, which bars federal tax dollars from being used for abortions in many federal programs. The Hyde Amendment has saved an estimated 2.5 million lives since its passage in 1976.

Senator Paul voted against the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, which really should be called the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” because it would enshrine abortion in federal law and policies, and it would tear down pro-life protections on the state level including parental involvement and informed consent laws.

“Senator Paul has demonstrated courageous leadership in defense of unborn children and their mothers from the violence of abortion,” said Tobias. “We look forward to continuing to work with Senator Paul for another term to advance vital pro-life policies.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of affiliates in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia 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, National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
