On Tuesday the National Right to Life Committee will endorse former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson for President, the Associated Press reports.
The Associated Press credited the information to two anonymous Republicans.
Senator Fred Thompson, a Republican, has a 100 percent voting record in the Senate but has come under criticism for conflicting statements about his position on abortion. Recently on the television talk show "Meet the Press," Senator Thompson refused to support the Republican Party's pro-life plank and suggested he did not favor criminalizing abortion even at the state level. However, he also voiced support for overturning the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
The National Right to Life Committee is the nation's largest pro-life organization, representing fifty state affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters.
