Matt Bevin, the underdog challenger to Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell , is endorsed by various tea party groups, including Tea Party Patriots. Bevin is a more conservative pro-lifer than most, and therefore could not garner the support of some of the mainstream “pro-life” groups. They might not agree with his idea of cutting medicaid funding for birth control. They might also find his family of 9 kids, four of whom are adopted from Ethiopia, to be over the top.
Andrew Bair, writing in LifeNews, notes that Bevin has support from the Northern Kentucky Right to Life organization, a group too conservative to be on his radar. NKRTL is an uncompromisingly pro-life group which opposes the birth control scam with which the left has successfully held women in thrall. Mitch McConnell does not answer survey questions coming from Northern Kentucky Right to Life.
On the other hand, Tea Party support for Matt Bevins has been due to such things as his insistence upon debt limits, and respect for immigration law. Mitch McConnell has voted many times to increase the government debt ceiling, (thereby funding Obamacare), and has been supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Pro-lifers such as Andrew Bair would do well to ponder if it is OK to vote to increase government debt, (thereby upholding the basis of the anti-life Obamacare), to allow people who broke immigration law to push ahead of immigrants who have shown respect for U.S. laws, and to give these illegals access to health care coverage which has been R E M O V E D from working Americans.
