"Senator Mary Landrieu continues to mislead Louisiana voters about her record on life and religious liberty; voting one way in Washington but concealing her positions back home. Senator Landrieu has voted for taxpayer funding of abortion both domestically and abroad, and even refuses to support a bill to ban late term abortions – clearly out of step with Louisiana voters. Sen. Mitch McConnell has promised a vote in the upcoming Congress on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most abortions past twenty weeks. Sen. Landrieu ought to be called out on her position if she wants to return to Washington to vote on this bill. Her voting record also reveals a lack of respect for religious liberty when she voted to reverse the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision, effectively supporting crippling government fines on people of faith. Between now and December 6th, we will continue to educate Louisiana voters on Mary Landrieu’s extreme positions."
