Right to Life coalition supports
Ted Cruz for Republican primaries

April 5, 2016 - 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.

As 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.

Right 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.

Both 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.

Listing 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.”
