A marquee prolife versus pro-abortion matchup will take place in Missouri in a Senate race that pro-life advocates believe they can win on their way to getting a pro-life majority in the U.S. Senate.
Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri is one of the Democrats’ most vulnerable senators heading into the 2012 elections and, following the Missouri Republican primary last night, she will now face pro-life Rep. Todd Akin.
[...]EMILY’s List, the political action committee that works to elect pro-abortion women, is recommending McCaskill to their supporters, encouraging contributions on her behalf. In order to receive the blessing of EMILY’s List, candidates must support even the most extreme elements of the pro-abortion movement including partial-birth abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion.
Since taking office in January 2007, McCaskill has not cast one pro-life vote. According to her votes, McCaskill supports abortion funding under healthcare reform, taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and taxpayer funding of embryonic stem cell research. McCaskill also voted to use American tax dollars to fund the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which participates in carrying out China’s oppressive One Child Policy. The One Child Policy has resulted in millions of forced abortions and made millions of baby girls into victims of sex-selection abortion.
I’m not about to endorse someone just because he is a social conservative, running against a radical pro-abortion leftist. I want to see foreign policy credentials, and fiscal conservatism, too!
Here are his awards for the most recent session of Congress:
|Center for Security Policy||Champion of National Security||100%||2010|
|National Tax Limitation Committee||Tax Fighter Award||A||2010|
|National Federation of Independent Businesses||National Guardian of Small Business Award||2010|
|Family Research Council||Friend of the Family||100%||2010|
|U.S. Chamber of Commerce||Spirit of Enterprise||2009|
|American Conservative Union||Defender of Liberty||100%||2009|
Ok, I’m good with him. And Claire McCaskill’s rating from the American Conservative Union is 0 in 2011, 17 in 2010, and an average of 14.6 over her 5 years of service.
