National Right to Life Endorses Jason Lewis for Election to the U.S. Senate from Minnesota

by | Aug 25, 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 Jason Lewis for election to the United States Senate from Minnesota.

“Congressman Lewis had a pro-life voting record during his term in Congress,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “He supports compassionate proposals to safeguard unborn children and their mothers from the pain of abortion.”

Jason Lewis 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.

Jason Lewis 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.

Jason Lewis also voted against using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion, and he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

By contrast, his opponent, Tina Smith, supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason. She voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Tina Smith supports using tax dollars to pay for abortion and supports taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

“Jason Lewis has worked to see that 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. “We look forward to working with Jason Lewis to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family.”
