Usually only pro-life politicians show up at pro-life events.

But sometimes the leaders of access-based pro-life groups are willing to sell-out life simply to curry favor with a high-profile politician.

That’s why Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney were audibly booed when they made surprise appearances at this major pro-life event. 

The “old guard,” access-based pro-life groups are well-known for their continual sell outs and willingness to compromise away the lives of babies simply to appear important and “connected.”

Giving pro-abortion RINOs cover for their bad actions

In reality what these access-based groups are really doing is giving pro-abortion politicians cover for their bad actions and votes.

A clear example of this occurred last year when some so-called pro-life groups came out in support of Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin’s surrender on abortion.

Youngkin decided to make the entire Virginia elections about his 15-week ban on abortion.

True pro-lifers know that a 15-week ban would only affect about 6% of all abortions as most abortions occur prior to 15 weeks.

But that didn’t stop some of the access-based pro-life groups from springing to Youngkin’s defense.

And on a national level some of the groups who claim to support life are even working against strong pro-life laws.

These actions give politicians like Youngkin and others the cover they crave from the pro-life cause.

Fortunately, solid pro-life groups like Students for Life and others, and pro-life activists, aren’t buying this swap of babies’ lives for political favor.

That’s how the old guard compromise pro-life groups recently found themselves scurrying for cover.

At the recent March for Life, the organizers had videos from a number of politicians, and while most of them were solid pro-life advocates, they also included a few that left pro-life activists shaking their heads in disgust.

They even included video clips from Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Mitt Romney (R-UT).

The old guard access-based organizers ignored the fact that McConnell has stood in the pro-life movement’s way, blocking good pro-life efforts for years.

And yet these old guard leaders allowed him to address the crowd as if he is a pro-life leader.

McConnell wouldn’t even commit to moving a late-term abortion ban through the Senate.

And Mitt Romney has been, at best, a thorn in the side of the pro-life movement bowing every chance he gets to the pro-abortion murder mob.

Both McConnell and Romney have a long and consistent record of opposing pro-life legislation from even being brought up for a vote.

The old guard access-based crowd just doesn’t get it, or doesn’t care.

It is actions like these which are exactly why things never change in Washington, D.C. or the state legislatures.  

But there is good news.

There are groups like Students for Life that understand the pro-life movement can’t keep awarding politicians who aren’t really our friends, and who sell out the pro-life movement time and time again.

Staying solid and consistent on the issue is the only path forward and the old guard will either learn that, or lose any semblance of importance they think they have.
