National Right to Life Endorses Tommy Tuberville for the U.S. Senate from Alabama

by | Jul 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — National Right to Life, the nation’s largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide, has endorsed Tommy Tuberville for election to the United States Senate from Alabama.

National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Tommy Tuberville for election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Tommy Tuberville supports compassionate proposals to safeguard unborn children and their mothers from the pain of abortion.”

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.

By contrast, his opponent, Senator Doug Jones, supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason, and he supports taxpayer funding for abortion. 

Doug Jones voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and thus in favor of allowing abortions to continue on unborn children after 20 weeks who are capable of experiencing great pain.

Doug Jones voted against the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. 

“Tommy Tuberville will work to ensure all innocent human life is protected and he is committed to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Senate,” said Tobias. “As a coach, Tommy Tuberville knows the hard work that goes into achieving victory and we look forward to working with him to win greater protections for the most vulnerable in our society.”
