National Right to Life PAC endorses Chip Cravaack

WASHINGTON – The political arm of the nation’s largest pro-life organization, the National Right to Life PAC (NRL PAC), today endorsed Chip Cravaack in his campaign to unseat Rep. Jim Oberstar for Minnesota’s Eighth District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The announcement comes on the heels of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life’s endorsement of Cravaack, a graduated of the United States Naval Academy and 24-year veteran.

“We’re proud to endorse Chip Cravaack for Congress,” said National Right to Life Political Director Karen Cross. “Chip Cravaack is firmly committed to repealing the anti-life provisions of the pro-abortion, pro-rationing Obama health care law passed by Congress in March – a law that Jim Oberstar voted for and helped enact.”

In a letter to Cravaack sent and released today, NRL PAC noted, “Recently your opponent, Congressman Jim Oberstar, voted to enact President Obama’s health care legislation, which will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will promote the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments.” The letter also lists Cravaack’s support for pro-life legislation and opposition to federal funding for elective abortion in all federal programs.

In their own endorsement of Mr. Cravaack last week, the Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Federal PAC noted that Oberstar “led an effort to lobby pro-life Democrats in the U.S. House to vote for final passage of the Obama health care bill, even though it included rationing and abortion funding.” In so doing, he violated an earlier pledge, “I will not vote for a health care bill that doesn’t have the House abortion language in it.” (CQ Today, Feb. 25, 2010)

Good luck Chip. I live in Texas but believe people like you will and can make a difference. I plan on send you a little money for your campaign because not only are you representing people of your state, you will be representing people of America.


Your Comments: The Duluth News Tribune editorial cartoon got the pro-life endorsements wrong by 180 degrees. Pro-lifers owe Oberstar nothing. Two years ago, Oberstar proved party politics were more important than principles by his unqualified support of Al Franken. He continued toeing the party line by voting for a bill that everyone who understands politics knows will lead to public funded abortions. Pro-life groups breaking their long relationship with Jim Oberstar was a brave and bold thing to do, and Chip is worthy of their support. Good job Chip and good job NRL and MCCL – keep it up!
