The Texas Alliance for Life, one of the state's largest pro life groups, has endorsed Corpus Christi attorney and small business owner Blake Farenthold for U.S. Congress in District 27.
The decision was based on Farenthold's support for pro-life issues including opposition to partial-birth abortions, Roe vs. Wade and taxpayer funding of abortion.
"Blake is solidly pro-life," said Dr. Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life. "We need him in Washington fighting for unborn babies and their mothers."
Farenthold is a Republican candidate in the Congressional race and will be in a runoff on April 13. Early voting in the runoff election is April 5 through 9. He recently went to Washington D.C. to advocate against passing health care legislation pushed by liberal Democrats that could bankrupt future generations, make access to abortions easier and use taxpayer money to pay for abortions.
"I am pleased to get the endorsement of the Texas Alliance for Life, one of our country's staunches advocates on pro life issues," Farenthold said. "I am proud to stand with them in their efforts to protect unborn children, limit taxpayer funded abortions and in support of adult stem cell research, which has proven effective in fighting disease."
The Texas Alliance for Life, Inc. is a nonprofit organization made up of people across the state committed to protecting the innocent human life from conception until natural death. More information is available at www.texasallianceforlife.org.
