National Right to Life Endorses Paul Gosar for Congressional District 4

From Paul Gosar for Congress:

Congressman Gosar’s outspoken support for pro-life issues in Congress has earned him a key endorsement from the National Right to Life, the group announced.

“During the current 112th Congress, you have compiled a 100 percent pro-life voting record on all right-to-life issues that have reached the House floor,” the National Right to Life Committee’s executive director David O’Steen said. “NRLC believes that all voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to return you to the House, so that you can continue to work to advance vital pro-life public policies.”

The group cited Gosar’s co-sponsorship of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act. The group also praised Gosar’s votes to repeal ObamaCare and the Protect Life Act, which would nullify the abortion-expanding components of the law.

“Notice ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ begins with life,” Gosar said. “There is no more important function of government than to protect its citizens. This includes the unborn.  I believe protecting the unborn is our country’s next big battle for civil rights.  I am honored to have the endorsement of the National Right to Life committee and look forward to continue working together to protect the unborn.”

This is the 3rdmajor endorsement in two weeks for Gosar, who recently received the endorsement from Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and the National Rifle Association.
