NARAL Endorsing Two Catholic Democrats Today

1-24-12 Posted by Admin in 2012 Election, Blog, Congress 3 Comments

There is news in Washington this morning that NARAL Pro-Choice America will endorse 22 House Democrats, two of which are running for the United States Senate this year, and two of which are Catholic. (NARAL stands for National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws)

The announcement this morning begins the NARAL political action committee’s 2012 activity with an event to honor supporters of abortion rights and to hand out $51,000 in donations to their campaign committees.

“The day after the March for Life the abortion lobby once again proves they don’t take a break,” said Catholic Advocate President Matt Smith. “Pro-life constituents for these Members of Congress need to remember on Election Day the fact they have been endorsed by a leading pro-abortion group.”

Based on their House voting records in 2011, the group will officially offer support to Tammy Baldwin (D, WI-02) and Shelley Berkley (D, NV-01), both running for the Senate and both have a 0% on Catholic Advocate’s 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

NARAL is endorsing two Catholics today:

  1. Joe Crowley (D, NY-07) [Catholic Advocate 2011 Score 0%]
  2. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA-08) [Catholic Advocate 2011 Score 0%]

    1) NARAL actually also stands for National Abortion Rights Action League. The cutesie acronym helps them not say the word “ABORTION” and use buzz phrases like “pro-choice” etc… Call them what they are, folks! Use the full name and not the acronym.

    2) interesting that #15’s name is “SLAUGHTER” !

    Keep up the good work.

    It is a sad state of affairs, that this nation will go down in history as baby killers.

    In the eyes of the Lord, we represent a culture of death. Repent pro-choice,

    the Good Lord is judging our actions daily.
