Victory in Montana: Senator Steve Daines Wins Re-Election to U.S. Senate

Nov 4, 2020 | 2020 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON – Pro-life Republican Senator Steve Daines Tuesday night defeated pro-abortion Democrat Governor Steve Bullock in the race for U.S. Senate. Senator Daines was endorsed by National Right to Life.

“We congratulate Senator Steve Daines 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 Montana to make it clear that the pro-life values of the state would be best represented in the U.S. Senate by Senator Steve Daines and voters responded.”

Senator Daines co-sponsored and voted for 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.

Senator Daines co-sponsored and voted for 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.

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

“National Right to Life looks forward to continuing our work with Senator Daines 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.
