Today, Tennessee Right to Life announced its endorsement of Diane Black for Governor. Tennessee Right to Life’s endorsement is the most recent on a growing list of pro-life organizations backing Diane Black including Susan B. Anthony List and National Right to Life.

“For more than 14 years Diane Black has demonstrated principled leadership toward the legislative goals of Tennessee Right to Life,” said Brian Harris, president of the state’s oldest and largest pro-life organization. “Our members have the deepest confidence that, among a field of pro-life candidates, Diane Black is best prepared by her experience and pro-life leadership to take on the next challenges facing Tennessee’s Right to Life movement.”

“Although Tennessee Right to Life is one of the most respected groups in our state, the work they do is not for praise or recognition, but for justice and protection for the lives of the unborn,” Black said. “Tennessee Right to Life has been an organization close to my heart for years. In the state legislature, we worked together to pass some of the strongest pro-life protections in the nation. I am honored to have their support.”

In the Tennessee General Assembly, Diane sponsored SJR 127, which became Amendment 1 – the most significantly pro-life measure in the history of the state.

In Congress, she sponsored many pieces of pro-life legislation including the Defund Planned Parenthood Act, the Conscience Protection Act of 2017, and a Congressional Review Act bill, signed into law by President Trump, that allows states to defund abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. She also co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

As governor, Diane will continue to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
