Pro-Life Nation Endorses Karen Handel for Senate ^ | Troy Newman

Handel Viewed as Best Candidate to Defeat the Left's Fictional 'War on Women'

MEDIA ADVISORY, May 9, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Troy Newman, President of both Pro-Life Nation and Operation Rescue, adamantly endorses Georgia candidate Karen Handel for U.S. Senate.

"Anyone who is willing to go head to head with Planned Parenthood, even to the point of sacrificing her own job, deserves my organization's support," Newman says, recalling Handel's courageous 2012 publication of Planned Bullyhood, a book which detailed the mafia shakedown Planned Parenthood gave Susan G. Komen when the breast cancer group tried to shift funding away from the abortion giant in order to create higher quality grants.

At the time, Handel was Vice President of Komen and intimately involved with the new changes in the foundation's policy. As a result, Handel's character and pro-life convictions became a direct target in the media firestorm that Planned Parenthood quickly orchestrated in order to publicly pressure Komen into backing down from the change in funding.

Newman states, "Handel has something this country truly needs: moxie. Despite intense opposition from one of the highest funded political machines in our nation -- that is, Planned Parenthood -- Handel's true character has gone untouched. She has continued to be an advocate for women and children in her state, and in the nation, by moving forward with her unwavering and unapologetic pro-life stance."

Handel has also consistently opposed Obamacare, describing it on her campaign site as "the biggest government intrusion into our lives in American history."

Thanks, your comment caused me to go and look up the particulars of the GA senate race (I live in TX, but I have friends in GA).

Looks like the division in the “tea party” and focus is based on who they think has a better chance of beating the Dem. female candidate and not major differences in these 2 conservative candidates. Although I agree with Mr. Broun’s basic premise about evolution and big bang, his statement, I think, was put a little strongly, and that’s probably why support has been growing for her.
