WASHINGTON — National Right to Life, the nation’s largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide, has endorsed Julia Letlow in the special election to the U.S. House of Representatives, to represent the 5th Congressional District of Louisiana.

“Julia Letlow supports pro-life legislation,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “She supports compassionate proposals to safeguard unborn children and their mothers from the pain of abortion.”

Julia Letlow supports the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation would protect unborn children at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

Julia Letlow also opposes using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion, and she opposes taxpayer funding of abortion providers.

“Julia Letlow will work to see that all innocent human life is protected, and she is committed to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. House,” said Tobias. “We look forward to working with her to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates 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, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia.
