Alabama Citizens for Life Political Action Committee today endorsed Kay Ivey for Lieutenant Governor in the November 2nd general election.
In the endorsement letter to Ms. Ivey dated September 21st, Alabama Citizens for Life PAC President Bill Klein wrote:
"You are a strong advocate for life; you support pro-life legislation and you oppose the use of state funding for elective abortion. We look forward to working with you to restore legal protection for innocent life--unborn children and medically disabled or dependent persons whose lives are threatened by abortion or euthanasia."
Upon receiving the endorsement, Ms Ivey said, "I am honored to have the support from the Alabama Citizens for Life. Nothing is as important as protecting the lives of the unborn, and as Lieutenant Governor, I will work for issues that recognize the sanctity of life and preserve traditional family values."
Alabama Citizens for Life is headquartered in Montgomery and is an affiliate to the National Right to Life organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. ACLPAC is an affiliate of the National Right to Life PAC.
This is Ms. Ivey's second endorsement from a pro-life group. The first was from the Susan B. Anthony List, a national advocacy group whose motto is "Electing Leaders Who Protect the Unborn."
Kay Ivey is Alabama's State Treasurer and won the Republican nomination for Lieutenant Governor in the June 1st Primary. She grew up in Wilcox County in Southwest Alabama.
