Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson has won the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee, the largest U.S. antiabortion group, three sources tell FOX News.
The announcement is scheduled to be made Tuesday in Washington D.C.
The announcement first was reported by The Politico. Click here to read the blog posting on The Politico.
With Mitt getting the Heritage Foundation and Rudy getting Pat Robertson last week Fred needs this. I cannot understand how Fred's stance on the issues could be seen as worse than Mitt or Rudy's. Of course Fox has to put this in:
Thompson's voting record is strongly in favor of abortion opponents, but his response to a 1994 questionnaire that surfaced earlier this year on abortion rights raised some questions over how strongly he stood against abortion.
And of course the fact that he would not support the Human Life Amendment because of his federalist beliefs is being used against him too.
The fact of the matter is, his record shows he voted pro-life 100% of the time while in the Senate. All while Rudy was calling for taxpayer funded abortions and Mitt was all for abortion.
Win, Fred, Win
