Email from the National Right to Life Committee

Their words say it all. The whole attempt to stir up abortion controversy around Fred Thompson has failed. (some personal data elided)

It appears that there is an attempt to create confusion regarding former Senator Fred Thompson’s pro-life position.

You can go to National Right to Life’s website [] to see Senator Thompson’s voting record against abortion, euthanasia, and experimentation on unborn babies’ bodies. As you can see, Senator Thompson had an excellent pro-life voting record while in the U.S. Senate.

I am concerned that someone may be misleading you about his record. Regardless, I assure you it was not from National Right to Life. National Right to Life PAC supported Senator Thompson for the U.S. Senate in 1994 and 1996, and considered him to be a very pro-life Senator.

Senator Thompson has since reaffirmed his pro-life position. I am attaching a link to the statement he made to the National Right to Life Convention.

Thank you for your interest and concern on this critical issue.

P.S. Following are quotes by Senator Thompson from interviews on Fox News.

"I think Roe v. Wade was bad law and bad medical science. And the way to address that is through good judges." [Interview with Chris Wallace, "FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace," FOX News, March 11, 2007.]

"I think the Supreme Court was absolutely right in this abortion decision, the… partial-birth abortion decision. The very idea that we could even have a debate over whether or not that atrocious activity should be allowable is very unfortunate, to say the least." [Interview with Sean Hannity, "Hannity and Colmes," Fox News, May, 4, 2007.]

"I am pro-life. " [Interview with Sean Hannity, "Hannity and Colmes," Fox News, May, 4, 2007.]
