“The Indiana legislature has made incredible policy advances to protect the unborn and their mothers, as evidenced by eight consecutive years of drops in the state abortion rate,” said Mike Fichter, Chairman of the Indiana Right to Life PAC. “With the right candidates elected in the Primary and again in November, Indiana will be poised to make more pro-life advances at the Statehouse. We urge pro-life voters to use their vote on May 8 to protect life. Our endorsed candidates are committed to the important work of defending those who cannot defend themselves, the unborn.”

The Indiana Right to Life PAC makes its endorsements based on its focused mission of protecting the right to life, especially of the unborn. Factors considered when making endorsements include incumbency, voting records on abortion-related issues in the legislature and survey responses.

Indiana Right to Life PAC works to elect pro-life candidates to public office for the purpose of enacting public policy that protects the right to life of all persons, including the unborn. Indiana Right to Life PAC believes that the issue of life is paramount to all other issues because without the right to life, all other freedoms are without meaning.
