National Right to Life Responds to Landrieu’s “Pro-Life” Ad

Nov 3, 2014 | 2014 Press Releases

WASHINGTON – The National Right to Life Victory Fund, today released an ad in the Lafayette Advertiser to respond to an ad published last week by pro-abortion Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana). Sen. Landrieu placed her ad to “clearly express” her views on “life and reproductive health.”

The following may be attributed to National Right to Life Victory Fund Louisiana Campaign Director Benjamin Clapper:

Mary Landrieu’s advertising obfuscated her 100% pro-abortion voting record since 2009. Hiding behind her Catholic faith, Sen. Landrieu conveniently omits any reference to 16 consecutive votes she has cast against pro-life interests since she was re-elected in 2008. Mary Landrieu is also hiding the fact that she opposes legislation that will protect unborn babies after 20 weeks, a point by which unborn children are capable of feeling terrible pain during dismemberment or other late abortion techniques. A Louisiana Senator should not support abortion in the fifth month of pregnancy and beyond! Louisiana voters need to study Mary Landrieu’s actions, not her words. Mary Landrieu’s 100% pro-abortion voting record is simply too extreme for Louisiana.
