"The years ahead will bring us new opportunities to defend the civil rights of the unborn, handicapped and elderly frail," said Right to Life President Barbara Listing and PAC Chairman Paul Miller in a statement.
"Mike Cox's support and leadership will be absolutely essential in restoring the basic right to life to the most helpless members of our human family."
Cox, who defended a 2004 citizen-initiated ban on certain late-term abortion procedures that was overturned in federal court, said Friday "true justice requires that we recognize, protect and defend every human life, from conception to natural death."
The Right to Life of Michigan Political Action Committee’s by-laws require the PAC to endorse one candidate in races with multiple prolife candidates if one of the electable candidates isn’t prolife. In the Republican primary for governor, Rick Snyder didn’t meet the PAC’s criteria for endorsement.
