Fred Thompson picked up an endorsement today that highlights one problem he doesn't have: his backing by pro-life forces.
West Virginians for Life gave their endorsement to Thompson. The Republican candidate from Tennessee, who has a solid record on the issue, hasn't had to put out any clarifications, explanations or re-statements concerning abortion.
While Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani's stance on the issue continues to raise questions, Thompson has quietly lined up Pro-life endorsements in the early stage of the presidential campaign.
The Mountain State endorsement was another one.
Senator Thompson released the following statement today regarding the West Virginians for Life endorsement of his candidacy for President.
From Christian Newswire:
"I'm deeply appreciative for their endorsement," said Thompson. "In supporting me, those who have worked tirelessly to defend life are supporting a consistent conservative who has stood with them yesterday, who stands with them today, and will stand with them tomorrow."
Fred Thompson is pro-life. He believes in the sanctity of human life and that every life is worthy of respect. He had a 100% pro-life voting record in the Senate and believes Roe v. Wade was a bad decision that ought to be overturned.
He consistently opposed federal funding to promote or pay for abortion and supported the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act, the Child Custody Protection Act, and President Reagan's Mexico City policy. While Fred Thompson supports adult stem cell research, he opposes embryonic stem cell research. He also opposes human cloning.
West Virginians for Life is the West Virginia state affiliate for the National Right to Life Committee.
So, Fred Thompson continues to line up grassroots support, all the while some writers continue to write about his "lazy" campaign habits.
His "laziness" apparently doesn't extend to the unborn.
