Hickory, NC - 10th District Congressman Patrick McHenry has earned the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee.
“During the current 112th Congress, you have compiled a 100 percent pro-life voting record,” National Right to Life Committee Executive Director David O’Steen said in a letter to McHenry. “This includes your support for the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3) and the Protect Life Act (H.R. 358).”
“I’m honored to have the support of the National Right to Life Committee,” said McHenry. “I will continue to do everything in my power to protect the sanctity of human life.”
The National Right to Life Committee is the oldest and largest pro-life organization in the United States. The NRLC supports legislation to protect the blameless unborn and informs the public about the significance of every human life.
