National Right to Life Committee Endorses Emmer

Otsego, MN – Today, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) announced that he has been endorsed by the National Right To Life Committee (NRLC).

“I am grateful to receive the official endorsement from the National Right to Life Committee,” said Congressman Emmer. “As a father of seven, I am a proud supporter of life. I will continue to support legislation that protects life and to be a voice for the voiceless for as long as I serve in Congress.”

Founded in 1968, National Right to Life 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.

“We strongly commend Congressman Emmer for his perfect 100 percent pro-life voting record in the 115th Congress,” stated Karen Cross, political director for the Committee.  “Voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to return him to Congress.”

In addition to the NRLC endorsement, Emmer has also been endorsed by the Sixth District Republican Party of Minnesota, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, and the National Federation of Independent Business.

 

A Look Back at this Session

Yesterday marked the last day of session for the U.S. House of Representatives until September. (The same does not hold true for the U.S. Senate, who will stay in Washington through August due to historic obstruction by the Democrats.)

As I headed back to Minnesota to continue working in the district, I reflected on the House’s accomplishments so far for you and your family. After years of struggling to not just get ahead, but to keep up, Americans are finally starting to see opportunity, jobs and confidence come back.

Happy Independence Day

In a 1961, President Reagan said this in a speech to the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

More than ever, our nation needs to hear (or read) these words.

Around the country, the idea that government is more trustworthy than the individual to do what is best seems to be catching on. Our ancestors fought against this 242 years ago, and the great American experiment was the result. While it is not always perfect, the United States continue to show the world that a democratic republic and capitalism allow Freedom and Liberty to flourish most abundantly, and that it is the Individual, not the government, who should lead the way.

This Independence Day, I wish you and your family a safe and happy celebration of everything this great land stands for: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
