HIGHLANDS, NJ, October 29 - Anna Little, Congressional Candidate in New Jersey’s Sixth District, has received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee. In a letter to the Little campaign, the nation’s largest pro-life network said that all Americans concerned about the right to life should vote to send Little to the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I am deeply honored to receive the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee,” said Little. “I will fight for every American’s Right to Life – especially for our most vulnerable citizens, for the very young, for the aged, for the infirm.”
Little has long defended the right to life in her personal and public life. On October 10, Mayor Little again received the endorsement of the Political Action Committee of New Jersey Right to Life, the state's premier right to life organization. She is one of only three Congressional Candidates and the only challenger to be so endorsed. NJRTL-PAC also endorsed Little in 2010. “The first right named in the Declaration of Independence is the Right to Life. If our right to live is not protected, then all our other rights are rendered meaningless, ” Little concluded.
The complete text of the endorsement letter reads as follows:
October 16, 2012
Dear Mayor Little:
National Right to Life is pleased to endorse you for election to the U.S. House of Representatives, to represent the 6th Congressional District of New Jersey. You are a strong advocate for life. You support pro-life legislation and you oppose the use of federal funds for abortion.
Your opponent, Congressman Frank Pallone, has compiled an extreme pro-abortion voting record. Congressman Pallone voted to allow the use of abortion for sex selection to continue, and he voted to allow the current policy of permitting abortion for any reason, until the moment of birth, to continue in our nation’s capital. He even voted to keep partial-birth abortion legal. Congressman Pallone voted to enact President Obama’s health care law, which will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will result in the rationing of life-saving medical treatments.
You are needed in Congress to help reverse the abortion-expanding and rationing effects of that law. This endorsement reflects your commitment to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress. We look forward to working with you to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family – unborn children and medically disabled or dependent persons, whose lives are threatened by abortion or euthanasia.
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 you to the U.S. House, where you can work to advance vital pro-life public policies.
David N. O’Steen Ph.D.
