Today Fred Thompson received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee.
A press release from the NRLC says:
"Fred Thompson has had a strong, consistent pro-life record throughout his political career. Thompson opposes abortion and believes the 1973 abortion on demand Supreme Court decision was wrongly decided and must be reversed. During his eight years in the United States Senate, he always opposed using tax dollars to promote or pay for abortion and supported the many pro-life measures such as parental notice and consent."
Political blogger Daniel Myers commented on the NRLC's endorsement on his blog today saying: "The National Right to Life organization has chosen to skip pass Pro-Life Candidate Mike Huckabee and endorse someone who does not support a constitutional ban against Abortion."
