Georgia Right to Life Defends Strict Endorsement Critieria
From Dan Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life:
Thanks much for your notice of our endorsement criteria. It actually is one of the toughest in the nation.
Many people assume that having such strict standards would actually marginalize our influence. Nothing could be further from the truth. We began this practice over ten years ago. Today, the majority of publicly elected legislators in the state of Georgia hold to “life of the mother ONLY” exception. In the last decade we went from the bottom of the list of states ranked by Americans United for Life (AUL) for its pro-life legislation to our current rating of 8th in the nation.
In the current race for Governor, 6 of 7 candidates supported our position AND support a Personhood Amendment to our Georgia Constitution.
We in the pro-life movement have been misled by our leaders in thinking that a biblicaly based, principled approach to politics is not achievable. We have demonstrated otherwise. We are proving that politicians “only see the light when they feel the heat.”
Thanks for all you are doing to end abortion in our day.
For the Sanctity of all life in the 21st century,
Dan Becker, President
Georgia Right to Life
