National Right to Life Endorses Markwayne Mullin in Oklahoma Senate Special Election

WASHINGTON— National Right to Life announces its endorsement of Congressman Markwayne Mullin for election to the United States Senate in Oklahoma. Mullin is running to replace Senator Jim Inhofe, who last year announced that he would retire at the conclusion of the 117th Congress.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Markwayne Mullin for election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “As a member of the House, Mullin has demonstrated strong pro-life convictions, and he will continue to be a champion for vulnerable members of the human family in the Senate.”

Markwayne Mullin has 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.

Markwayne Mullin has 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.

Markwayne Mullin has 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.

By contrast, his Democrat opponent Kendra Horn supports a policy of abortion on demand for any reason, and she would use Americans’ tax dollars to pay for abortions. Her extreme position is out of touch with most Oklahoma voters.

“Markwayne Mullin is firmly committed to building a culture of life,” said Tobias. “We look forward to working with Markwayne Mullin in the Senate to advance policies that protect unborn children and their mothers.”

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.
