National Right to Life--a coalition of prolife groups in 50 states including Right to Life of Michigan--announced on April 5 their support for Ted Cruz in the upcoming Republican presidential primaries.
solicitor general of Texas, Ted Cruz helped lead states in defending
partial-birth abortion bans and parental notification for abortion laws
before the U.S. Supreme Court. Ted Cruz has a 100 percent prolife voting
record as scored by National Right to Life.
Ted Cruz has
promised to defund Planned Parenthood, protect the conscience rights of
prolife citizens, and appoint judges who follow the U.S. Constitution.
to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, "The field has been
narrowed, yet many prolife people still have an important choice to
make. I encourage prolife voters to ask themselves which candidate has a
proven prolife track record and is most likely to defeat Hillary
Clinton in November."
In the last few days Cruz's main
competitor for the nomination, Donald Trump, has made several unclear
and contradictory statements about his opposition to abortion.
candidates running in the Democratic primaries--current frontrunner
Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders--support abortion-on-demand
through all nine months of pregnancy, paid for by U.S. taxpayers.
said, "There is a clear contrast in where the candidates stand on life.
With the U.S. Supreme Court hanging in the balance, the stakes for the
unborn are very high."
