The National Right to Life Committee today praised President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to be nominated as attorney general in January.

“Jeff Sessions will bring to the Justice Department a strong record in defense of innocent human life, and consistent opposition to the imposition of social legislation by the judiciary,” said Douglas Johnson, Legislative Director of National Right to Life.

Throughout his tenure in the United States Senate, which began in 1997, Jeff Sessions has a 100% pro-life voting record.  He has co-sponsored pro-life legislation including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would protect from abortion unborn children at 20 weeks fetal age or later, who are capable of feeling pain, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would ensure a baby born alive during an abortion is given the same care that would apply to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.
