National Right to Life endorsed Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta in his U.S. Senate race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, lauding Barletta’s pro-life legislative efforts and blasting Casey’s voting record on the issue and his support of Planned Parenthood.
“There is a stark contrast between Lou Barletta, who supports legal protection for unborn children, and Bob Casey, who has repeatedly voted to give hundreds of millions of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, which performs about one out of every three abortions in America,” she continued.
While casting himself as the Senate’s iconic blue-collar friendly, pro-life Democrat … Casey has stood with Planned Parenthood consistently, insisting that the abortion giant will reduce abortions in the United States.”
Barletta co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act — legislation to protect unborn children by prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods, National Right to Life said.
Tobias added to TheBlaze that while NRL has never endorsed Casey Jr., his father — the late Casey Sr. — is one of her “heroes.”
