The National Right to Life Political Action Committee (NRLC) has announced its endorsement of Congressman Mike Pompeo in his re-election campaign for the Kansas 4th District Congressional race. Congressman Pompeo has also received the endorsement from Kansans for Life earlier in the campaign.
In a letter to Congressman Pompeo, the NRLC said "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." A copy of the letter is available by clicking HERE.
The NRLC notes Pompeo's 100% pro-life voting record during his first term in Congress, including support of H.R. 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, and his vote to repeal the Obama health care law--a law the NRLC says will result in rationing of lifesaving medical care.
"We must continue the fight to protect life in this country," Pompeo said. "I have built my life and my family on faith, integrity and the belief that all life is precious. I believe it is my duty as a member of Congress to protect life and my pro-life voting record is a testament to that. Life is not man's to destroy--rather it is a gift from God."
"Further, the liberal policies of President Obama and other Democrats have no regard for freedom of conscience or religious liberty. We've seen the federal government force medical care providers to choose between their own deeply-held religious beliefs and complying with a law that requires them to provide contraception and abortion care. This attack on our most basic of freedoms must be stopped."
