NRLC turns against pro-life Dems who settled for ObamaCare with abortion 

Expect to see more of this over the summer.

The National Right to Life PAC has endorsed former Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, for the Cincinnati-area seat he lost two years ago to a putatively pro-life Democrat, Steve Driehaus. The endorsement comes after Driehaus voted for ObamaCare, which funds abortions.

The PAC praised Chabot for his own pro-life record, and added:

“In sad contrast, the current occupant of the First District seat, Steve Driehaus, voted to enact President Obama’s massive health care legislation (H.R. 3590), although it lacked the pro-life protections that the National Right to Life Committee, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and other major pro-life groups had fought for long and hard  – protections that were necessary to prevent future federal funding of elective abortion and federal subsidies for private insurance plans that cover elective abortion (some of which will be administered directly by the federal government).

“On this critical issue, Mr. Driehaus talked a good game, but ultimately came down on the side of President Obama, who successfully blocked the pro-life protections from being included in the bill – just as, throughout his political career, Mr. Obama had opposed the very types of pro-life policies that you championed.”
