Statement from Indiana Right to Life PAC Chairman Mike Fichter:


Indiana Right to Life PAC
“One of Indiana Right to Life’s strategic goals for the next five years is to reduce Indiana’s abortion rate by at least 25%. We know that we will not accomplish that objective with Democrat majorities in Indianapolis and Washington. The official Democratic Party platform on abortion adopted in 2008 states: ‘The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.’

It is clear that the Democratic Party’s leadership, platform, and actions are having a devastating impact on the unborn as evidenced by recent passage of the federal health bill and the continued killing of prolife legislation in Indiana by the Democratic majority in the Indiana House.

Republican, Libertarian, Independent and Tea Party candidates will remain eligible for endorsement consideration under the Indiana Right to Life PAC policy. In addition, the IRTLPAC policy will in no way change the nonpartisan nature of our voter guides.”
