PRO-LIFE GROUP ENDORSES ERIC STEWART
IN THE 4TH CONGRESIONAL DISTRICT
Urges Tennessee Right to Life to also endorse Stewart
WASHINGTION, DC – October 17, 2012 - Today, Democrats For Life of America issued its endorsement of pro-life Democratic candidate Eric Stewart in the 4th Congressional District of Tennessee.
“We are proud to endorse Senator Stewart,” said Kristen Day, Executive Director of Democrats for Life of America. “He understands and fully supports pro-life principles. In his public service career, Eric Stewart has always stood up for the least powerful and most vulnerable among us, including women facing unexpected pregnancies and their unborn children.”
Recent media reports on the Republican candidate, incumbent Congressman DesJarlais, indicate that he may not be a reliable pro-life voice. The Tennessee Conservative Union is calling on DesJarlais to resign because his actions were in direct opposition to his alleged pro-life stance. Pro-life voters should be fully informed for the November election, which is why DFLA is encouraging other pro-life groups to join them in support Eric Stewart.
“The Tennessee Conservative Union has taking the right stance by asking DesJarlais to resign. Pro-lifers have an opportunity to elect a true pro-life representative,’ said Day. “We are asking the Tennessee Right to Life and other pro-life groups to join us in supporting Eric Stewart. ,” said Day. “He is a solid pro-life candidate and deserves the endorsement and support from groups who share our pro-life views.”
