The National Right To Life Committee, the largest nationwide network of pro-life people dedicated entirely to protecting life, recently awarded its endorsement to United States Representative Lou Barletta (PA--11th) and offered its full support to ensure Rep. Barletta's second term in Congress. The executive leadership of the Committee - which includes Executive Director David N. O'Steen, Legislative Director Douglas Johnson, and Political Director Karen Cross -- commended Rep. Barletta for his 100% pro-life voting record in Congress and his consistent votes to keep taxpayer dollars from funding abortion.
"National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Lou Barletta for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives," stated Executive Director David N. O'Steen. "Not only are we impressed with his absolute pro-life voting record in Congress, but we also are grateful for Congressman Barletta's support of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3) and the Protect Life Act (H.R. 358). Additionally, National Right to Life is indebted to Congressman Barletta for voting to repeal the Obamacare health law, a law which will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on-demand and which will result in rationing of life-saving medical care. Congressman Barletta has National Right to Life's ringing endorsement and our full support for his re-election."
"The right to life is a basic human principle I hold sacred," Congressman Barletta responded. "As a man of deep faith, I will always fight to protect the lives of the most vulnerable members of the human family -- the unborn -- and I will continue to stand against attempts to use taxpayer dollars to fund abortion. I am grateful to the National Right to Life Committee for this important and influential endorsement."
