We are honored to announce that Joe has received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee. It is both a proud and humbling moment in Joe's effort to replace Ohio's 9th District Representative, Marcy Kaptur, who has spent an entire career working against the efforts of this outstanding organization's efforts to protect and defend a child's fundamental right to be born.
See the full text of the letter below:
National Right to Life is pleased to endorse you to represent Ohio’s 9 th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
This endorsement reflects your commitment to renewing a culture of life, not only in Ohio, but throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress.
Congresswoman Kaptur voted to enact President Obama’s pro-abortion health care law, which will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will promote the rationing of lifesaving treatments. Your support is needed to reverse the proabortion and rationing effects of that health care legislation.
Congresswoman Kaptur even recently voted against a bill to prevent abortions from being performed for the sole purpose of eliminating an unborn child who is not of the sex desired by the parents.
You are a strong advocate for life: you support pro-life legislation and you oppose the use of federal funding for abortion. We look forward to working with you to restore legal protection for innocent life – unborn children and medically disabled or dependent persons whose lives are threatened by abortion or rationing.
The countless Americans who respect the sanctity of human life appreciate your willingness to serve. This willingness to take up the fight for life makes us proud to endorse you in the upcoming election.
