ATHENS, GA- The Georgia Right to Life PAC has endorsed Dr. Paul Broun, M.D. in next Tuesday’s Tenth Congressional District Republican primary.
The Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) endorsed Broun for his “pro-life, pro-personhood commitment to the protection of human life, born and pre-born.”
“As a candidate who has demonstrated a willingness to stand for the sanctity of life, we are especially pleased to commend Dr. Paul Broun and look forward to working with him,” the group said in its endorsement letter.
Georgia Right to Life PAC exists to “encourage and support candidates who will be an effective voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and who will uphold the standard of no exceptions and no compromise.”
Broun’s position on abortion has recently come under fire from opponent Timothy Barr who calls Broun a “moderate” on the issue for not supporting legislation that Broun says “denies the humanity of preborn persons.”
“Apparently opposing compromise makes you a moderate now and denying the humanity of the preborn makes you pro-life in Mr. Barr’s book,” Broun said. “The Bible says to beware of those who call evil good and good evil.”
Broun has signed the Georgia Right to Life’s “personhood affirmation,” and his record of keeping that pledge during his previous tenure in Congress helped earn the group’s support again.
As a Congressman, Broun sponsored the Sanctity of Human Life Act that would acknowledge the legal personhood of all preborn babies. That unflinching stance helped earn him the reputation as “the most conservative Republican in federal office” (MSNBC).
“If elected to Congress, that will be my first bill. It would establish that human life begins at fertilization and that every preborn child is entitled to the full and equal protection of the law,” Broun said. “We cannot expect God to bless America if we continue killing a million children a year. We must repent as a nation, bless God, and celebrate His gift of life.”
Broun’s dedication to the pro-life cause is not a matter of political expediency, he says, because he was involved in the “pro-life movement” before ever running for office. Broun helped found an abortion alternative center in Atlanta based on evangelical Christian convictions.
“Being pro-life alone isn’t enough. We’ve got to empower mothers to choose life for their children and support them when they do. That starts with the body of Christ. As the song says, ‘If we are the body, why aren’t his hands reaching?’”
