WASHINGTON — Pro-life Republican Tommy Tuberville tonight defeated pro-abortion Democrat Doug Jones in the race for U.S. Senate. Tommy Tuberville was endorsed by National Right to Life.

“We congratulate Tommy Tuberville for his election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “National Right to Life reached out to voters across the state of Alabama to make it clear that the pro-life values of the state would be best represented in the U.S. Senate by Tommy Tuberville and voters responded.”

Tommy Tuberville supports the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This 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.

Tommy Tuberville supports the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. This 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.

Tommy Tuberville opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

Tommy Tuberville will vote to confirm conservative federal judges to the bench who pledge to interpret the Constitution as it was written.

“National Right to Life looks forward to continuing our work with Tommy Tuberville in the U.S. Senate to advance life-affirming, pro-life policies that protect unborn children and their mothers,” said Tobias.

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.
