As the race for Virginia’s Fifth Congressional district works it’s way inside of two weeks until the November election, national advocacy organizations are beginning to stake positions on their candidate of choice.
After receiving endorsements from both the National Right to Life and the Susan B. Anthony List, 5th District GOP nominee and Virginia Senator Tom Garrett issued the following statement:
“I am honored to receive the support of these organizations who are so dedicated to the preservation of life. It is imperative that we continue to govern not just with moral conviction, but within the confines of our basic, inalienable rights, which include the right to life. This decades’ long attack on the unborn by Democrats is unconscionable and I am proud to continue providing a voice for the most vulnerable among us.”
In contrast, Democratic nominee Jane Dittmar has been endorsed by Emily’s List while Senator Garrett received a 0% rating by NARAL – a pro-abortion group with a radical agenda that supports late term taxpayer-funded abortions while opposing parental consent to abortion for minors.
