Buck loses American Right to Life endorsement

American Right to Life president Bob Enyart said today that his organization will pull its endorsement of GOP Senate hopeful Ken Buck because “he’s already broken every pro-life campaign promise he’s made.”

Enyart told The Denver Post that he’s going to issue a statement to “all pro-life voters” Friday urging them not to vote for Buck because he has backtracked on a primary campaign promise that he would never vote on a Senate confirmation of anyone who is “pro-abortion.”

Buck has since said he would never use abortion as a litmus test for Senate confirmations, and he didn’t know at the time that “pro-abortion” meant “pro-choice.”

“He’s making a distinction between pro-choice and pro-abortion, which no pro-life group makes,” Enyart said. “He played us for fools and he did it successfully.”    - More -
