Rick Santorum Announces Support of Pro-Life Legislation in North Carolina

Verona, PA - Former Republican presidential candidate and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum announced today his support of Senate Bill 353, currently before the North Carolina legislature that, among several notable measures, would increase protections for mothers and unborn children and prohibit abortion based on gender. 

"I am pleased to stand up and support critical legislation that will protect unborn babies in North Carolina.  If we don't take a stand to support our most fundamental right to life, then no other rights matter.  Every life should be protected and every life has value, and I am pleased to join pro-life allies in North Carolina to see that this bill becomes law," said Rick Santorum.  "I have been proud to stand with pro-life leaders around the country to usher in a new era of pro-life legislation that will protect our unborn children.  It is my hope that the two chambers can come to an agreement on strong pro-life legislation that the governor will sign into law."

Rick Santorum served in the U.S. Senate from 1995 - 2007 and has bee a leader in the fight to protect the unborn for the last two decades, most notably leading the fight to pass the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in 2002, the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act in 2003, and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act in 2004.

Earlier this month, Senator Santorum traveled to Austin, TX to lend his support for legislation before the Texas legislature that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and require abortion facilities to meet basic health and safety standards.  The legislation passed the Texas House and Texas Senate, and Governor Rick Perry signed the bill into law last week.
