Nevada Pro-Life PAC Backs Lowden


The fact that the Nevada Right to Life PAC decided to endorse Sue Lowden in Nevada’s GOP primary is not as surprising as the fact that they endorsed at all; Lowden, Danny Tarkanian, and Sharron Angle are all pretty staunchly pro-life. The Susan B. Anthony List PAC endorsed Lowden; Concerned Women PAC endorsed Angle.

Jeremy McNeil, Executive Director of Nevada Right to Life PAC, announced that the PAC has endorsed Sue Lowden in the race for United States Senate.

“Nevada Right to Life PAC is pleased that support for unborn life has been a focal point of the Republican Senate primary this year,” McNeil said.  “Given the strong pro-life credentials of the three leading Republican candidates, making a decision who to endorse was difficult.”

“Replacing pro-abortion Senator Harry Reid with a pro-life senator is imperative,” McNeil said.  “Harry Reid has consistently advocated a radically pro-abortion agenda.  He was instrumental in blocking an amendment to prevent the federal government from subsidizing health plans that cover abortion on demand and voted to remove a previous ban on funding organizations that promote abortion overseas.”

“Sue Lowden is an excellent choice for United States Senate.  In our estimation, Sue Lowden represents the best opportunity to defeat Harry Reid in November,” McNeil said.  “We also believe she is the candidate who will be most effective in the passage of federal pro-life legislation.  Nevada Right to Life PAC whole-heartedly supports her candidacy.”

Harry Reid claims to be be pro-life, but he’s not pro-life enough to, say, oppose insurance coverage for abortion.
