Historic Overview

Name of a political party organized to endorse candidates of other parties who favored the repeal of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. The party first fielded candidates in 1980 and immediately gained ballot status in New York State. The party lost its ballot status in NY following the 2002 elections. "With the legalization of abortion in New York in 1970, the Right to Life party was born, thanks mainly to the efforts of a group of Long Islanders. The party had made the state ballot by 1978, when its candidate, Mary Jane Tobin of Merrick, won 130,000 votes in the gubernatorial race. The party has been a constant presence � and, some would say, headache � ever since, though it suffered a setback in the 2002 elections when it failed to get the 50,000 gubernatorial votes needed to remain on the ballot. (Its attorney general candidate received about 70,000 votes and its comptroller about 62,000.)" -From http://www.nationalreview.com/fitton/fitton012403.asp
