Ryan Has Tougher Anti-Abortion Record Than Akin

Bloomberg notes that since Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) was first elected in 1998, he "hasn't voted against any bills backed by the National Right to Life Committee. The group gives him a lifetime voting score of 100 percent."

The group scored Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) "at 90 percent support during one of his six terms and at 100 percent for the rest of his tenure. Akin cosponsored every abortion bill supported by Ryan in the almost 12 years the two Republicans have served together in Washington."
