NRLC: Meek Receives Phony Baloney Citation

MEDIA ADVISORY, ( -- Today the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the nation's premiere pro-life organization, awarded its first-ever "Phony-Baloney Citation" to Representative Kendrick B. Meek (D-FL).

In a letter earlier this week to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which he co-signed, Meek claimed to seek "common ground" on abortion in the White House-backed healthcare "reform" proposals currently being considered. However, just last week, Meek voted in the House Ways and Means Committee against amendments to prevent the bill from mandating elective abortion coverage and to prevent federal subsidies for elective abortion.

Since coming to Congress in 2003, Meek has voted against the pro-life position on the floor of the House 30 times. He has never cast a pro-life vote in Congress on an abortion-related issue, not even partial-birth abortion, parental notification, or fetal homicide.

In awarding the "Phony-Baloney Citation," NRLC Federal Legislation Director Douglas Johnson said, "In light of his extreme pro-abortion voting record, Rep. Meek's call for 'common ground' reeks of brazen political posturing, and warrants this special citation."

The National Right to Life Committee is the nation's largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide. National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect those threatened by abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted suicide.
