Senator Mitch McConnell has defeated abortion activist Amy McGrath even though she spent $90 million against him. McConnell has been a solid 100% pro-life vote during his career and has been dubbed “Cocaine Mitch” for his fervent and hard work getting conservative judges confirmed.
With 29% of the vote in, McConnell leads McGrath 58.4-37.9%.
“Senator McConnell has proved to be a champion for the right to life, from protecting the unborn child to people with disabilities, he has shown compassion for the most vulnerable among us,” said Diana Maldonado, president of Kentucky Right to Life.
Senator McConnell’s record is consistently pro-life:
*Senator McConnell co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that would protect unborn children at 20 weeks—a point at which an unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when she is being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

*Senator McConnell co-sponsored and voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would require that a baby born alive during an abortion be afforded the same degree of care that would apply to any other child delivered at the same gestational age.
*Senator McConnell has voted numerous times against using tax dollars to pay for abortion, and he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers. Senator McConnell has also fought tirelessly to confirm hundreds of federal judges to the bench, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
“Senator McConnell has worked diligently to see that all innocent human life is protected by law and he is committed to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Senate” said Tobias. “We look forward to Senator McConnell’s re-election and working with him to continue our work in protecting the most vulnerable among us.”
National Right to Life endorsed Senator McConnell in May of this year. Kentucky Right to Life endorsed the Senator in September in conjunction with endorsements for all statewide races.
