It's time we examined the veracity of that rumor.
What many pro-life voters may not realize, is that Dino Rossi, in his two runs for governor, never received the endorsement of Human Life of Washington, the only pro-life organization in Washington state that surveys (in writing) all candidates for state and federal offices on the issue of abortion. The same is true this year as Dino seeks a spot on the general election ballot to challenge Patty Murray: He has not received the Human Life endorsement. In fact, Human Life of Washington issued a dual endorsement in the U.S.Senate race to: Paul Akers and Clint Didier, having both met the criteria. (Endorsements have not yet been listed on Human Life of Washington's website, but the press release went out recently).
Human Life of Washington does not endorse candidates who support legalized abortion, even in the hard cases of rape and incest. Dino Rossi believes abortion should be legal in cases of rape and incest.
