"Your positions on life issues differ sharply from the extreme pro-abortion positions of your opponent, Rep. Bill Enyart, who has a 100% pro-abortion voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives," NRL's President wrote in the endorsement letter to Bost.
"You support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation to protect unborn children from abortion after 20 weeks, when they are capable of feeling excruciating pain during abortions. Rep. Enyart voted against that legislation (H.R. 1797, Roll Call No. 251, 6/18/13). You oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, while Enyart voted to allow tax dollars to pay for abortion (H.R.7, Roll Call No. 30, 1/28/14)."
The NRL also pointed out that Bost's opponent Bill Enyart supports President Obama’s health care law (“Obamacare”), which provides government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will result in the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments. Bost's election would help reverse the abortion-expanding and rationing effects of that law, they wrote.
And, they said, "Enyart has even co-sponsored a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution (H.J. Res. 119) that would allow Congress to prohibit organizations such as National Right to Life from criticizing elected officials, publishing their voting records, or doing anything else that could 'influence elections.' You support the First Amendment and will oppose any such attacks on the Bill of Rights."
Bost said he was "thrilled" to be endorsed by the committee.
"I am thrilled and honored the National Right to Life Committee is endorsing our campaign for U.S. Congress," Bost said in response. "The sanctity and protection of life is another issue that clearly separates my campaign from the pro-abortion views and voting record of Bill Enyart."
