The National Right to Life Committee has endorsed Republican U.S. Chuck Fleischmann as the Chattanooga lawmaker seeks a third term, according to a Fleischmann news release.
The group thanked the congressman for his 100 percent pro-life voting record, opposing taxpayer funding of abortions,and co-sponsoring the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
“All 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 you to Congress," the campaign quoted the NRLC's letter saying.
The NRLC endorsed Fleischmann in his 2012 race as well. The congressman said he is honored by their support.
"There is nothing more important than giving a voice to the voiceless, and standing up for the sanctity of human life. I have stood for the value of life from day one and will continue to do so," Fleischmann said in the release.
