Montgomery, AL (LifeNews.com) — Mike Huckabee has picked up the endorsement of another pro-life group in another Super Tuesday state. This time, Alabama Citizens for Life has issued an endorsement of the former Arkansas governor and urges Republican voters there to back his candidacy in the primary tomorrow.
"Alabama Citizens for Life PAC has endorsed Mike Huckabee as the candidate with the strongest pro-life position in the upcoming primary election and urges all voters to vote for Mike Huckabee for president," the group told LifeNews.com.
The group said "Huckabee has taken the strongest pro-life position on all of the life issues of any of the remaining candidates for president."
Bill Klein, the director of the group’s political action committee, said the organization examined where the candidates stood on abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and human cloning.
The organization acknowledged that other pro-life candidates are running for the GOP nomination.
It indicated that Sen. John McCain has a "strong pro-life voting record on abortion" and said it "appreciates the pro-life position taken in this presidential campaign by former governor Mitt Romney."
Alabama Citizens for Life also reaffirmed its commitment to electing a pro-life candidate in the general election.
Regardless of who wins the Republican nomination, the group urged pro-life advocates in Alabama to "work for the election of pro-life candidates" to "help see that the Republican Party nominates a pro-life candidate for president of the United States of America who will maintain the pro-life plank in the platform."
The group urges the pro-life community to "do what is necessary to see that a pro-life president is elected in 2008."
It told LifeNews.com it "does not want any of the pro-abortion Democratic candidates — Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — elected president."
