The Massachusetts Citizens for Life Political Action Committee today endorsed former U S Attorney Michael Sullivan for United States Senator.

“Michael Sullivan has been a fighter for the unborn and for the right to life of all,” said John Rowe, Chairman of the MCFL PAC.

Row told LifeNews, “In the U. S. Senate, Sullivan will vote to prohibit abortion coverage under federal ‘multi-state’ health plans, vote for parental notification and not bringing minor girls across state lines to have abortions without their parents’ knowing, and vote for conscience rights.”

“MCFL PAC is proud to endorse Michael and will stand firmly beside him in his efforts to protect life in the U.S. Senate. We encourage Massachusetts voters to support him on Primary Day and Election Day,” he added.

The endorsement follows on the heels of the nation’s biggest abortion business jumping into the special election race. Earlier this month, Planned Parenthood stepped in for Ed Markey, a pro-abortion congressman. Though not mentioning abortion specifically — covering up with vague language about women and health, Planned Parenthood endorsed the Democrat.

“Planned Parenthood Action fund is proud to support Congressman Markey for U.S. Senate,” said Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Throughout his career, Ed has been a steadfast champion for women and their access to health care – voting to support the historic women’s health advancements in the Affordable Care Act and opposing attacks on access to safe and legal abortion. He recognizes that personal health care decisions should be left to a woman in consultation with her doctor, her family and her faith – without interference from politicians. Despite the defining role that women’s health played in the 2012 elections – with champions for women’s health like Senator Elizabeth Warren winning races across the country – the attacks on women’s health have continued. That is why it is so important for Massachusetts to send a trusted and consistent supporter like Ed Markey to the Senate.”



“We are pleased to stand with the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in support of Congressman Markey, who is unwavering in his support for women’s health,” said Martha “Marty” Walz, president of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts. “Massachusetts voters are proud of our long history of electing U.S. Senators who put smart policies ahead of political ideologies and who will not compromise on women’s access to health care. We must carry on that tradition and elect Congressman Markey, who understands that politicians should not meddle in a woman’s personal health care decisions. The women and men of Massachusetts can trust Congressman Markey to respect their choices.”

Congressman Markey has received a 100 percent rating from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund for his votes in the U.S. House of Representatives.
