Topeka, KS (LifeNews.com) — When Kansas voters head to the polls in November, the National Right to Life Committee hopes they will vote for pro-life Congressman Jerry Moran. He is running against Democrat Lisa Johnston, a school administrator, in the general election after capturing the primary election nod.
Today, the National Right to Life Political Action Committee, the political arm of the nationwide pro-life group, endorsed Moran.
"National Right to Life Political Action Committee is pleased to endorse you for election to the United States Senate from the state of Kansas," NRLC political director Karen Cross said to Moran in a letter. "This endorsement reflects your commitment to renewing a culture of life, not only in Kansas, but throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress."
The letter called on Moran to join other pro-life Republicans in the Senate to curb the problems associated with ObamaCare.
"Recently, Democrats in Congress voted to enact President Obamas health care legislation over your objections, which will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and promote the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments," Cross continued. "Your support is needed to reverse the pro-abortion and rationing effects of that health care legislation."
Moran responded to the endorsement with his appreciation and a promise to continue his strong pro-life voting record in Congress.
"The sanctity of life is an issue that goes beyond politics for me. Respecting life and preserving families is the key to America’s future," he said.
He continued, "I am honored to have this endorsement and I look forward to continue working to protect Kansas families from initiatives by the federal government that fail to protect life."
The NRLC affiliate Kansans for Life saw many of its endorsed candidates for the state legislature and statewide office, such as gubernatorial candidate Sam Brownback, fare well in the primary elections.
At the state level, the gubernatorial team of Sam Brownback & Jeff Colyer, Secretary of State candidate Kris Kobach, and incumbent state Education Board members John Bacon (district 3) and Ken Willard (district 7) were some key wins.
