Rep. McCotter signs pledge saying if elected president, he will appoint anti-abortion rights judges, cabinet
Rep. Thad McCotter signed a pledge this week saying if he is elected he will appoint cabinet members and judges who share his belief that abortion should be illegal in the United States.
The Pro-Life Leadership Pledge has also been signed by six other GOP presidential runners, reports MLive.com.
“The culture of death, as enshrined by Roe v. Wade, is a present danger to the weakest in our society,” he said in a statement released by the Susan B. Anthony List, the conservative non-profit group sponsoring the pledge.
“Unless Roe is overturned, the culture of death will continue to fester and endanger Americans. To protect future generations of Americans, we must work in our families and our communities to uphold the sanctity of human life.” …
By signing the pledge, McCotter agreed to nominate pro-life judges, select pro-life cabinet members, de-fund Planned Parenthood and support legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Mitt Romney, while maintaining pro-life status, has refused to sign the pledge.
