NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 8, 2015 -- Today, Texas US Senator Ted Cruz received a ringing endorsement from Georgia's largest pro-life organization.
"Senator Cruz has an unblemished record of standing up for innocent life," said Ricardo Davis, Director of Georgia Right to Life's Political Action Committee (GRTL PAC
). "Recent revelations about the horrors of the abortion cartel cry out for a principled fighter like Senator Cruz."
Senator Cruz received the endorsement after reviewing his activities supporting personhood and receiving his signed GRTL PAC Personhood Affirmation, which asks that candidates support a personhood amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Such an amendment would guarantee a constitutional right to life for every innocent human being, from earliest biological beginning until natural death.
The announcement was made today at the Cruz Bus Tour stop in Newnan, GA. #CruzCountry
Senator Cruz's pro-life record includes the following:
• Leading the charge on behalf of 13 states in successfully defending the federal Partial Birth Abortion Act before the U.S. Supreme Court.
• Joining 18 states in successfully defending New Hampshire's Parental Notification Act before the U.S. Supreme Court.
• Successfully defending a Texas law that prevents state funds from being sent to organizations that perform abortions.
• Calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood amid charges that the abortion giant sells aborted body parts.
GRTL PAC only endorses candidates who fully support its principles and positions on pro-life issues.
"With so many candidates running for President, we hope others will follow Senator Cruz's lead, stand with us and seek our endorsement," Davis said.
Georgia Right to Life promotes respect and effective legal protection for all innocent human life from earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of a number of organizations that has adopted Personhood as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.
