Pro-life Ohio congressman elected party leader

.- Members of the Republican Party in the House of Representatives have elected a pro-life Ohio congressman to become the second-ranking leader of the party in the lower chamber of Congress.

Rep. John Boehner will take over from pro-life Texas Rep. Tom DeLay, reported LifeNews.com. Boehner won the race on the second ballot.

During the campaign for the position, Boehner referred to his pro-life views in a letter to members of the Values Action Team, a group of pro-life lawmakers.

"It is a commitment I have felt deeply throughout my life and a commitment I will uphold unapologetically," he said.

Boehner has compiled a 100 percent pro-life voting record since 1997, according to the National Right to Life Committee. In 2005, he supported the bill to back Terri Schiavo's family and voted against using taxpayer funds for embryonic stem-cell research.

Boehner is not new on the scene. In 1994, he was served as chairman of the House Republican Conference, the fourth-ranking leadership post.
