In the state of Indiana pro-life Senate candidate Todd young has defeated his pro-abortion rival Evan Bayh.
“It is imperative that Hoosiers send pro-life voices to represent them in Congress,” said Mike Fichter, Chairman of the Indiana Right to Life PAC, before the election. “Regardless of who holds the White House, Congress must continue to advance pro-life policies like defunding Planned Parenthood, protecting babies born alive after abortions and blocking the federal funding of abortions.
“We are confident that Todd Young will be a dependable vote for life in the Senate. Among other important issues facing our next Senator will be the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice to replace Justice Antonin Scalia. We need a pro-life Senator who understands how crucial it is to truly vet the judge who may sway abortion-related Supreme Court decisions for a generation.”
Karen Cross of National Right to Life said “Todd Young is pro-life. He opposes abortion on demand, and supports protection for unborn children.”
Todd Young co-sponsored and voted to advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), legislation to protect unborn children who can feel pain 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.
Todd Young supports the Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act, a bill to ban a common and brutal method of abortion in which the living unborn child is torn apart limb from limb. In contrast, Evan Bayh supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason.
