National Pro-Life Leader Endorses Mike Huckabee

Contact: Thomas A. Glessner, 540-847-1062


WASHINGTON, Nov. 14 /Standard Newswire/ -- Long time national pro-life leader Thomas A. Glessner has issued a personal endorsement of Governor Mike Huckabee for president. Glessner, an attorney and author, is the founder and president of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, a public interest law firm that supplies legal services to Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs). NIFLA currently has 1,100 PRCs as members in all fifty states. Glessner has served as CEO of NIFLA for fifteen years and has been in a national leadership role in the pro-life movement since 1987.


Glessner issued his endorsement in a letter to the more than 2,500 PRCs nation wide. In doing so, he emphasized that this was his personal endorsement and was not being made on behalf of NIFLA, which, as a 501(c) (3) organization, cannot endorse or oppose candidates for political office.


In his letter Glessner passionately discusses the importance of the upcoming presidential campaign. The endorsement letter states, in part:


"Forty nine million abortions since 1973 is a moral blight upon our land that must be corrected and 1.2 million abortions a year continues to break the very heart and soul of this nation.... Life is an inalienable gift from our Creator that is the first and foremost of rights upon which all others depend. Our next president must be a person who believes this within the foundations of his soul. And we need a president who has the moral convictions and commitment to work to end the cultural nightmare of abortion....  I am convinced that Governor Huckabee is that person.


"Now is the time to make our voices heard loud and clear! We cannot sit on the sidelines at this crucial time in American history. And now is not the time to pragmatically endorse and support candidates who have questionable records on abortion simply because conventional political wisdom appears to tell us that they have the best chance of winning.


"This is not the time to hope for the best from the worst of candidates because it appears that they are the probable winners. No! There is too much at stake and if we fail to support the candidates who truly support us then we have failed ourselves. May this not be!


"I urge that all who read this letter commit to supporting Governor Huckabee with your prayers and your votes in your state primaries and caucuses."
