Yakima, WA – Human Life Political Action Committee (PAC), the leading pro-life organization in the state of Washington, has officially endorsed Congressman Newhouse for re-election. Human Life of Washington is a grassroots organization that aims to reestablish a cultural recognition that all human beings are endowed with intrinsic dignity and the inalienable right to life from conception to natural death. The group accomplishes this through lawful means of educating and motivating the human heart.
“We are grateful for Congressman Newhouse’s commitment to stand behind the right to life,” said Human Life PAC President Kenneth VanDerhoef.
“As a father and person of faith, it is my strongly held belief that the life of a child begins at conception and that child’s life is deserving of protection. I have been committed to ensuring the rights of the unborn are protected and am honored to have earned the endorsement of Human Life PAC,” said Congressman Newhouse.
Amongst his many actions to support pro-life efforts in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Newhouse has co-sponsored legislation including H.R. 3134, the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015,” which would place a moratorium on all federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and H.R. 4924, the “Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act,” which would restrict sex-selection and race-selection abortions and the coercion of a woman to obtain either. He has urged the Department of Justice on numerous occasions to investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices regarding the sale of fetal body parts, the possible criminal violations stemming from such practices, and the involvement of taxpayer subsidies for such purposes.
“I look forward to continuing to support efforts to affirm that unborn children have a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed,” Congressman Newhouse added.
