Press advisory: statement on Rep. Dan Burton

January 31, 2012

Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter issued this statement today regarding Indiana congressman Dan Burton’s announcement that he will not seek re-election:

“We applaud Rep. Dan Burton for the legacy he will leave as a steadfast champion for the unborn.  Over the course of his time in congress, Rep. Burton fought against FDA approval of the dangerous RU-486 abortion drug, supported the removal of taxpayer funding for America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, and helped to pass historic pro-life legislation including the federal ban on the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure.  There are undoubtedly many children who are alive today because of the efforts on Rep. Burton.”
