National Right to Life has endorsed Karen Handel (R) following the special election in Georgia’s sixth congressional district to replace former Rep. Tom Price, who was confirmed as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Karen Handel, whose position on life reflects the true values of Georgia’s voters,” said Karen Cross, National Right to Life political director. “There is a stark contrast between these candidates on life issues. Karen Handel (R) is pro-life and Jon Ossoff (D) supports abortion for any reason.”

The National Right to Life Victory Fund was actively involved in the April 18 special election in Georgia’s sixth district. Through phone, email contacts, and social media, National Right to Life Victory Fund reached out to identified pro-life households in the district encouraging them to vote against Jon Ossoff, who supports a policy of abortion on demand, and supports using tax dollars to pay for abortion.

Eighteen candidates vied for Price’s vacant seat. Because no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, a special runoff will be held on June 20 between the top two: Karen Handel (R), who is pro-life, and Jon Ossoff (D), who is not.

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 send Karen Handel to Congress, so that she can work to advance vital pro-life public policies.
