From http://hrtl.org/vote.htm

Honolulu, HI -- Hawaii Right to Life PAC has announced its candidate endorsements and recommendations for dozens of races statewide. Its selections are based on a comprehensive vetting of those running for office and in-depth personal interviews affirming each endorsed candidate’s commitment to pro-life values.

Hawaii Right to Life urges voters to take a careful look at the candidates and their respect for the value of human life and dignity as an issue of fundamental importance to their fitness for office. Executive Director Janet Grace stated, “We cannot in good conscience support any candidate who has no regard for the lives of all who live in Hawai‘i, including the most vulnerable members of our ‘ohana. In this general election, the ‘choice’ is ours. Who will we choose to protect and defend the weakest amongst us: a candidate who pledges to uphold the full spectrum of life through our laws or a candidate who has--or will--vote to allow the destruction of unborn babies and support assisted suicide laws that could ultimately result in the involuntary deaths of the elderly, disabled, and seriously ill? When voters choose candidates who respect life, the lives they save could be their own.”

Hawaii Right to Life PAC has done an in-depth study of the candidates and has developed an extensive list of those who have signed a right-to-life pledge stating they will work toward creating a culture of life for the precious people of Hawaii nei and beyond.

Voters have a priceless opportunity to save thousands of lives by selecting pro-life candidates, which may be viewed at the organization’s web site at hrtl.org/vote.htm. Hawaii Right to Life is a non-profit organization that advances respect for life for all people, from conception to natural death.

Founded in 1973, Hawaii Right to Life is the state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee.

Note: Endorsements and recommendations are made solely by Hawaii Right to Life PAC and are not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.

Recommendation Notes:

1. Candidate agrees with right to life pledge in its entirety EXCEPT for abortion. On the issue of abortion, candidate believes that exceptions should be made, allowing abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother.

2. In an interview with Hawaii Right to Life, candidate stated that he opposes assisted suicide but supports taxpayer funding of human embryonic stem cell research. He stated his belief that abortion law "is settled" and would not support any attempts to restrict abortion except in the case of a partial-birth abortion ban. It should also be noted that the candidate's main opponent is endorsed by abortion advocacy groups and repeatedly authored/sponsored assisted suicide legislation in the state senate.

3. Candidate has indicated that they are pro-life but has not yet signed the pledge.
