Bob Latta Endorsed by Right to Life Groups

BOWLING GREEN, OH – U.S. Representative Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has received endorsements for his re-election in Ohio’s 5th Congressional District from both the National Right to Life Committee and Ohio Right to Life. A letter from the leadership of National Right to Life commended Latta for his 100 percent pro-life voting record in the 114th Congress.

In a letter from Ohio Right to Life President Michael Gonidakis, the organization highlighted Latta’s strong pro-life commitment.

“There should be no equivocating when standing up for the unborn and protecting the most vulnerable in our society,” said Latta. “I’m proud of my 100% record in Congress because when it comes to advancing pro-life policies, there should be no wavering. We need strong voices to oppose the agenda that continues to push for government funding of abortion and the ability to carry out late-term abortions. I’d like to thank both the Ohio Right to Life and the National Right to Life for their support and more importantly, their strong advocacy on the issue of life.”

In their endorsement of Rep. Latta, National Right to Life pointed to a number of pieces of pro-life legislation supported by Latta. He voted to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which protects unborn children that can feel pain by prohibiting abortions after 20 weeks. Polling found that this bill was supported by 62% of Americans including 68% of women.

In addition, Latta also supported the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which would establish a permanent ban against funding abortions with taxpayer money.

They also highlighted Latta’s continued efforts to block funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and his continued votes to repeal Obamacare, a law that expanded the use of health plans that cover abortion.
