Right to Life of Michigan PAC Endorses Mitt Romney for President

The Right to Life of Michigan Political Action Committee (RLM-PAC) has joined the National Right to Life Committee Political Action Committee in endorsing Mitt Romney for President of the United States. Right to Life of Michigan is Michigan's largest prolife organization.

RLM-PAC Chairman Paul Miller said, "While the primary season can often be divisive, it is time for prolife people to come together and unite behind Mitt Romney to ensure President Barack Obama doesn't spend another four years in the White House. We need a prolife president who is willing to respect and defend the sanctity of human life."

Mitt Romney has pledged to support the Hyde Amendment, which prevents certain federal funds from going to pay for abortions, supports the reversal of Roe v. Wade, favors efforts to prohibit abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding and has promised to appoint judges who follow the Constitution.

Since being elected, President Obama has implemented a series of pro-abortion provisions. He rescinded the Mexico City policy, which bars funding to organizations which provide and promote abortion overseas, strongly opposed efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and pushed a health care plan without rules to prevent the subsidization of abortions.

Miller said, "Words can hardly describe how important this election is for unborn children and other human beings whose lives aren't deemed valuable by some in our society. Electing a prolife president is priority #1 for the RLM-PAC in 2012."

Right to Life of Michigan is a nonpartisan, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization of diverse and caring people united to peacefully protect the precious gift of human life from fertilization to natural death.
