WASHINGTON, Oct 30 (LSN) – Taking information from the US National Right To Life Committee (NRLC),  LifeSite News and many other pro-life and religious news services published stories this summer about a supposed donation scam by a group called American Right to Life (ARL). It turns out that American Right to Life is actually a bona fide new pro-life group which began after deeming that the National Right to Life Committee had made many compromises for political gain.  The faithful pro-life group Life Decisions International (LDI) has vouched for the veracity of American Right to Life. In an investigative report by LDI president Douglas R. Scott, while not naming the NRLC,  said that ARL had been the victim of a smear campaign. ARL rejects the politically based concessions that it believes the NRLC has made and is proposing itself as a new group unwilling to bend on the sanctity life for political reasons.  Objections to NRLCs approach may be growing. In an October 29th interview, former US Presidential candidate and strong pro-lifer Howard Phillips was outspoken in his criticism of NRLC. Phillips noted that the group has “refused to endorse a pro-life candidate for the US Senate, Congresswoman Linda Smith of Washington State, and have endorsed her pro-abortion opposition for the Republican nomination, Chris Bayley.” Also, “In NewYork State, they have actively campaigned for Al D’Amato, to be the nominee of the Right-to-Life Party of New York for the US Senate, despite the fact that D’Amato has voted for every pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee, including Breyer, Ginsburg, David Souter, Sandra Day O’Connor, etc.;  despite the fact that he is one of the principal burden-bearers for the homosexual movement on the floor of the US Senate.” The interview, originally published in Christian News, was reprinted by conservative Internet news source WorldNetDaily.
