Senator Specter: Switching Parties or Coming Home?
Date:4/28/2009

WASHINGTON, April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Senator Arlen Specter (?-Penn) switched political parties from Republican to Democrat.

Tom McClusky, Senior Vice President of FRC Action, the legislative arm of Family Research Council, had this to say:

"Senator Specter's actions today come as no surprise. To paraphrase an old saying, 'if it looks like a donkey, quacks like a donkey and votes like a donkey - then it is probably a donkey.' This holds true for Senator Specter and the Democrats in the Senate.

"As a Republican, Senator Specter voted for taxpayer funding of destructive embryonic stem cell experimentation, for taxpayer funding of organizations that promote and perform abortions (including coercive abortions), for partial-birth abortion, for federalizing 'hate crimes' and for cloning.

"During this same time Senator Specter voted against covering unborn children in government insurance programs, against parental involvement when children seek an abortion, against school choice, against protecting marriage and even against the Boy Scouts of America!

"All these anti-family votes earned Senator Specter a lifetime average of 37 percent in FRC Action's annual scorecard. The only Republican senators scoring less were Maine's Susan Collins (28 percent) and Olympia Snowe (25 percent.)

"I look forward to working with Senator Pat Toomey in the 112th Congress."
