National Right to Life: voters should return Graham to U.S. Senate: Senator Lindsey Graham endorsed for re-election.

WASHINGTON -- On Thursday the National Right to Life Committee, the oldest and largest pro-life group in the nation, joined with the South Carolina Citizens for Life Federal PAC to endorse U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham in his bid for reelection.

"Lindsey Graham has been a pro-life champion throughout his years of congressional service," said Douglas Johnson, National Right to Life legislative director. "He was the architect of one of the most important pro-life laws ever enacted by Congress, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which punishes those who injure or kill unborn children while committing federal crimes. He is currently pressuring the Senate Democratic leadership to allow a vote on his groundbreaking bill to prevent abortion nationwide in the fifth month and later, when the unborn child is capable of experiencing excruciating pain during the abortion."

"Senator Graham is a stalwart, go-to lawmaker on right-to-life issues," said Lisa Van Riper, South Carolina Citizens for Life president. "Because he never wavered on life issues, Senator Graham has been recognized as our Legislator of the Year."

Graham also voted against enactment of the Obama health care law--a law that created a national program of massive federal subsidies for insurance plans that cover abortion, and imposes rationing of lifesaving medical care.

"National Right to Life believes that all voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to return Senator Graham to the Senate, so that he can continue to work to advance vital pro-life public policies," said National Right to Life President Carol Tobias.
