Victory in Wyoming: Cynthia Lummis Wins Election to the U.S. Senate

Nov 5, 2020 | 2020 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room, Uncategorized

WASHINGTON — Pro-life Republican Cynthia Lummis Tuesday night defeated pro-abortion Democrat Merav Ben-David in the race for U.S. Senate. Cynthia Lummis was endorsed by National Right to Life.

“We congratulate Cynthia Lummis for her election to the U.S. Senate,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “It was clear to voters across the state of Wyoming that Cynthia Lummis best represented the pro-life values of the state.”

Cynthia Lummis served as the representative for Wyoming’s at-large congressional district from 2009-2017 and has a lifetime 100% pro-life record.

Cynthia Lummis 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.

Cynthia Lummis 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.

Cynthia Lummis opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and she opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

“National Right to Life looks forward to working with Cynthia Lummis 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.
