Duncan Hunter and the Right to Life Act
written by Gary C. Huggins

The National Right to Life Committee indicates that more than 48 million abortions have been performed in the US since 1973. This is the consequence of Roe v Wade. Abortion is a major issue for me. I would like to share Duncan Hunter’s position on this issue.Duncan Hunter introduced the Right to Life Act (H.R. 618) to protect the unborn:On January 22, 2007, Congressman Hunter introduced the “Right to Life Act” (H.R. 618) which, he states, will “legally define ‘personhood’ as the moment of conception and, therefore, guarantee all constitutional
rights and protections, including life, to the unborn without utilizing a constitutional amendment.” Mr. Hunter has also co-sponsored legislation which would bar someone from transporting a minor across
state lines to obtain an abortion, prohibit reproductive cloning, and require abortionists to let pregnant women know that children aborted 20 weeks after conception can feel pain. The text of the legislation reads:
“To implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person”.See Right to Life Act here: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:HR00618:@@L&summ2=m

Duncan Hunter has a consistent pro-life voting record that spans 26 years (1981 to 2007):

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), a pro-life organization, has granted Duncan Hunter a 100% rating while the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL), a pro-choice organization that advocates abortion, has granted Mr. Hunter a 0% score on legislation related to life issues. These ratings indicate that Mr. Hunter has a strong and consistent pro-life voting recordSee Duncan Hunter’s National Right to Life Committee 100% rating here:
See Duncan Hunter’s NARAL rating of 0% here: http://www.naral.org/elections/statements/hunter.htmlDuncan Hunter’s philosophy on judicial appointment of pro-life judges:

“I support people with good judgment, proven values, a belief in God, and a heart for the least of us, including the unborn. I believe it is important that those sitting on the bench understand that they have a responsibility to strictly interpret our nation’s laws and not legislate from the bench with their own political or social agenda”.
