IRTL PAC endorsement policy mentioned prominently in American Spectator
July 6, 2010
Indiana Right to Life PAC’s 2010 endorsement policy regarding Democratic candidates in the wake of the disastrous health care bill is mentioned prominently in the June 26 American Spectator. Interestingly, the policy seems to draw the strongest criticism from the national Democrats for Life group whose director seems to chide IRTL-PAC for not endorsing Brad Ellsworth in 2008 when he boasted of a 100% score by National Right to Life. While meant as a criticism of IRTL-PAC’s decision — which was made due to Ellsworth’s support for Speaker Pelosi — Democrats for Life may have unwittingly shown that the action now appears to be prophetic in light of Ellsworth’s disastrous cave-in to President Obama and Speaker Pelosi on the health care bill, which is widely regarded as the largest federal expansion of abortion since Roe vs. Wade.
