Pro-Life Group Endorses Labrador for Congress

MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- An Idaho grassroots group announced today that it had decided to endorse State Rep. Raul Labrador in his bid for the 1st District congressional nomination.

"We've had the honor of working with Raul for a number of years now, and appreciate his integrity and commitment to pro-Life principles," said ICL Executive Director David Ripley. "What separates the candidates running for Congress is Labrador's proven value under fire."

Labrador has served in the Idaho State House of Representatives since being elected in 2006. During that time he has earned a 100% pro-Life voting record.

This past session, Labrador was co-sponsor of two key pieces of pro-Life legislation.

"Labrador provided leadership in answering the threat of ObamaCare," Ripley said, "which is the most dangerous advance of abortion since the Roe v. Wade decision."

Labrador was one of the House leaders who brought forth the Idaho Health Freedom Act, which is the basis for Idaho's court challenge to federalized health care.

Then he assisted Idaho Chooses Life in getting a strong conscience protection bill enacted into law.

"Conscience protection for doctors and nurses is part of a larger strategy to resist death panels and the rationing of health care for seniors and vulnerable Idahoans," Ripley added.

The Board of Idaho Chooses Life reviewed candidate answers to an extensive survey on pro-Life issues. Labrador, Vaughn Ward and Harley Brown all scored well on the questionnaire. The other candidates did not respond.

"We acknowledge the candidates' positions on critical pro- Life issues," Ripley said. "But we've learned through hard experience that there is just no substitute for being there. Raul has stood his ground time after time, when politics and the Abortion Lobby have exerted tremendous pressure to abandon principle."

"Our endorsement is meant to honor Raul Labrador's record and service to Idaho," Ripley concluded.
