Tennessee Pro-Abortion Candidates Attempt to Hide

“Abortion is driving campaign debates in nearly every critical race as evidenced by the effort of pro-abortionists to hide their records.  Help us bring a historic number of pro-life voters to the polls in support of TRL-Endorsed Candidates!” — Brian Harris, President, Tennessee Right to Life
Underscoring the strength of the pro-life position in Tennessee, even the most ardent pro-abortion state legislators are suddenly claiming to be ‘pro-life’ in the final days before early voting begins.  “An unprecedented campaign of disinformation is being waged by pro-abortionists,” said Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life.  “They are trying to hide their own pro-abortion votes while attacking pro-life legislators.  Fortunately, legislative voting records don’t lie,” commented Harris.  “Pro-Life voters should look very carefully at Right to Life endorsements because in the case of incumbents, they are based on voting records not ‘public positions.’
 
Contrast the pro-abortion records of incumbents against their campaign statements:
 
Pro-abortion Senator JoAnn Graves voted 12 of 13 times against pro-life SJR 127 yet calls herself ‘pro-life.’  Graves faces pro-life hero Rep. Diane Black who led the call for SJR 127 to be pulled to the House floor for vote. 
 
Pro-abortion Senator Roy Herron voted 13 of 13 times against pro-life SJR 127 but issues press releases triumphing his ‘pro-life’ convictions.    Herron faces pro-life pastor Dennis Doster who makes SJR 127 and Right to Life endorsement a key part of his campaign.  
 
Mixed record John Wilder cast 8 of 11 votes against pro-life SJR 127 but now campaigns as “100% pro-life.”  Wilder faces pro-life Ron Stallings, a member of TRL who entered the race, in part, because of Wilder’s work against SJR 127. 
 
Pro-abortion Rosalind Kurita cast 13 of 13 votes against SJR 127 but now refers to a 1997 vote she cast against partial birth abortion.  Kurita faces pro-life Brenda Radford, a supporter of allowing a public vote as sought by SJR 127.
 
Pro-abortion Senator Larry Trail voted 12 of 13 times against pro-life SJR 127 but claims to have ‘supported SJR 127.’  Trail faces pro-life Jim Tracy, also a member of TRL who has supported pro-life efforts in his own community. 
 
Pro-abortion Jimmy Naifeh killed SJR 127 and threatened a filibuster when Diane Black attempted to recall SJR 127 for vote.  Never the less, Naifeh continues his claim to be ‘pro-life.’  Pro-abortion Naifeh faces pro-life physician Jesse Cannon. 
 
In addition, pro-abortion challengers are attempting to distort pro-life votes against hostile weakening amendments to SJR 127.   Led by the state Senate Democratic Caucus, many democrat candidates with no recorded position on abortion are taking to the airwaves and local papers to claim that strongly pro-life legislators ‘voted against a ban of partial birth abortion.’
 
In fact, pro-life legislators did vote against a particular gutting amendment to which pro-abortion forces had cleverly added an unenforceable sentence “no person shall perform a partial birth abortion.”   The ACLU-led effort was devised in an attempt to pressure pro-life legislators from defeating the hostile amendment.  Pro-abortionists planned that a vote to kill the hostile amendment would be painted as a pro-abortion vote against pro-life legislators.
 
Fortunately, pro-life legislators stood firm and stripped the hostile language from SJR 127.  Now pro-life voters must stand with those legislators who held the line for pro-life Tennesseans and SJR 127.
 
Abortion is driving campaign debates in nearly every critical race as evidenced by the effort of pro-abortionists to hide their record.  Help us bring a historic number of pro-life voters to the polls in support of TRL-Endorsed Candidates!
