Republican congressional candidate Barry Moore has been endorsed by the National Right To Life PAC, one of the nation’s most influential pro-life groups. Moore said that he was “humbled” by the endorsement.
In a personal letter to Moore, signed by National Right to Life President Carol Tobias, Executive Director David O’Steen and Political Director Karen Cross, the organization cited Moore’s strong advocacy for life, support of pro-life legislation, including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, opposition to the use of federal funds for abortion and opposition to taxpayer funding of abortion providers as reasons for their endorsement.
The endorsement letter concluded by urging all Alabama voters in the 2nd District to vote to send Moore to Congress.
“I’m very humbled by this endorsement from the National Right to Life organization,” Moore said. “I firmly believe we have a duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves, especially the unborn. I do believe that life begins at the moment of conception, and we have a sacred duty to honor that life.”
“I will continue to stand up for what I believe — that all life is precious, and that we should protect it in every way we can — as Alabama’s Second Congressional District representative in the U.S. Congress,” Moore said. “I look forward to working with other pro-life members of Congress and President Trump to fight for the rights of the unborn.”
Moore faces Democratic nominee Phyllis Harvey-Hall on the Nov. 3 general election ballot.
Moore was elected to two terms in the Alabama House of Representatives in 2010 and 2014. He is a veteran and a graduate of Auburn University. Moore and his wife, Heather, own a small waste management business. They have four children and live in Enterprise.
Incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby, R-Alabama, is retiring after five terms representing the 2nd Congressional District.
