WASHINGTON, DC – The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the nation’s oldest and largest national pro-life organization, endorses Dr. Greg Murphy for the special election on September 10th to fill North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District seat.

“National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Dr. Greg Murphy, whose position on life reflects the values of North Carolina’s 3rd District voters,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “If elected, Dr. Murphy would work diligently to protect all innocent human life.”

Dr. Murphy has a proven pro-life record in the state house. He voted for the Born Alive bill which would have provided medical care to a baby who survives an abortion. The bill was later vetoed by the governor.

Last month, on June 5th, National Right to Life also endorsed pro-life North Carolina Senator Dan Bishop who is running for the 9th Congressional District.

As a state Senator, Dan Bishop also voted for North Carolina’s Born Alive bill. Both Dan Bishop and Dr. Greg Murphy oppose abortion on demand as well as tax dollars being used to pay for abortions.

Barbara Holt, president of North Carolina Right to Life, stated, “North Carolina Right to Life Inc. PAC is thrilled to have two solidly pro-life candidates, North Carolina  Senator Dan Bishop running for the 9th District, and state Representative Greg Murphy, M.D., running for the 3rd.  Both men have proven pro-life track records in the General Assembly. Their pro-life credentials will serve them well in Congress and will continue the pro-life record accumulated by their predecessors.”

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.
