Dear Senator McConnell:
The National Right to Life Political Action Committee (NRL-PAC) is pleased to endorse you for re-election to the United States Senate.
NRL-PAC is the political arm of the nation's major right-to-life organization, representing right-to-life affiliates throughout the nation.
We commend you for your exemplary 100 percent pro-life voting record throughout your entire six-year term in the U.S. Senate. You have played a leading role in winning enactment of major pro-life legislation, including the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (enacted in 2003) and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (enacted in 2004). You have also consistently voted against federal funding of abortion and of organizations that promote abortion.
We are also grateful for your cosponsorship of other important pro-life bills that have not yet been enacted, including parental notification legislation and the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act.
In addition, we recognize your leadership in winning confirmation of federal judicial nominees who believe that the proper judicial role is to interpret and apply the written law, not to engage in legislating from the bench.
Your extraordinary pro-life record should earn you the support of every voter who is committed to the fundamental right to life and to the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family.
David N. O'Steen, Ph.D.
