LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia, July 12 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Georgia Right to Life is stunned that former Alaskan Governor, Sarah Palin, has endorsed Karen Handel for Governor. Mrs. Handel has proven that she is not the best candidate for Governor for the state of GA based on her more liberal pro-life views. Although claiming to be pro-life, Mrs. Handel does not believe it necessary to protect the lives of all the preborn.
Because of this, Georgia Right to Life chose not to endorse Mrs. Handel. The Susan B. Anthony List, a group that seeks to see pro-life women elected, also withheld their stamp of approval from the only female candidate running in Georgia's race for Governor.
"In 2010 women need to be standing up for women who will protect all life, not just some life," comments Melanie Crozier, Director of GRTL's Political Action Committee. "I am especially surprised that Mrs. Palin would endorse a candidate that thinks pre-screening embryos for genetic disorders and abnormalities is okay, considering Mrs. Palin views those lives to be the most precious of all."
Georgia Right to Life encourages all Georgians to vote for a candidate that has pledged to value all human life. For a list of all GRTL PAC endorsed candidates, please visit www.grtl.org
Georgia Right to Life promotes respect and effective legal protection for all human life from its earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of the number of organizations that have adopted Personhood as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.
