Operation Rescue Stands By Its Endorsement of Judge Moore for Senate; Calls for McConnell to Resign
Washington, D.C. – In light of the spurious, unproved allegations and attacks against Judge Roy Moore, who is a candidate in Alabama’s special senatorial election, Operation Rescue, an outspoken national pro-life group, stands firmly behind Judge Moore and reiterates its endorsement of him for the U.S. Senate.
“I know Judge Roy Moore to be a dedicated Christian and social conservative who will not compromise on the matters of life. He is staunchly pro-life, and a true defender of religious freedom. I urge all the good people of Alabama to cast their votes for Judge Roy Moore for Senate,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, in his August 9, 2017, endorsement of Judge Moore’s Senate Campaign.
Those words are as true today as when they were in August.
In this day when even an unfounded allegation of sexual misconduct can ruin careers, it is no accident that this particular allegation was brought against Judge Moore at this time. His defeat would further destabilize the U.S. Senate and keep it from accomplishing President Trump’s agenda, which is opposed by Democrats, Establishment Republicans, globalists, and pro-abortionists.
“The attacks on Judge Moore are nothing more than dirty politics by those who oppose his staunch conservative Christian values. I don’t believe them for one moment,” said Newman. “After forty years in public service, the fact that the unfounded allegations that are today splashed across headlines have arisen with less than a month to go before this important election is no co-incidence. Establishment Republicans, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, should be ashamed of themselves for jumping to rash conclusions when calling for Moore’s withdrawal from the race.”
On September 27, 2017, Operation Rescue called for the resignation of McConnell due to his failed leadership and inability to defund Planned Parenthood.
“If anyone should resign, it should be Mitch McConnell,” said Newman. “I double down on our call for Mitch McConnell to step aside after his shameful display of prejudging Judge Moore and for his failed leadership in the Senate.”
