WASHINGTON— National Right to Life announced its endorsement of Andy Harris for re-election to the United States House of Representatives in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Andy Harris for re-election to Congress,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “As a physician and co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, Congressman Harris recognizes the value of human life at every stage, and he has worked tirelessly to protect it.”

Congressman Harris helped to lead the charge in Congress for numerous pro-life protections for unborn babies and their mothers.

Congressman Harris opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion. He voted to preserve the longstanding Hyde Amendment, which bars federal tax dollars from being used for abortions in many federal programs. The Hyde Amendment has saved an estimated 2.5 million lives since its passage in 1976.

Congressman Harris voted against the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, which really should be called the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” because it would enshrine abortion in federal law and policies, and it would tear down pro-life protections on the state level including parental involvement and informed consent laws.

“With his background in medicine and deep commitment to protecting vulnerable members of the human family, Congressman Harris has demonstrated effective, indispensable leadership for the pro-life movement in Congress,” said Tobias. “We look forward to continuing to work with Congressman Harris to advance vital pro-life policies.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of affiliates in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
