"America needs a president who has been consistently pro-life and has defended the sanctity of human life. Sen. Ted Cruz has courageously defended human dignity in both the Senate and as solicitor general of Texas. I'm honored to serve Sen. Cruz as one of the co-chairs for Pro-lifers for Cruz"
HOUSTON, Texas – According to the Cruz website, Presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced his pro-life coalition at a pro-life rally yesterday in Des Moines, Iowa. Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council is the Chair of Pro-Lifers for Cruz and will be participating in the rally as Cruz announces the group, which already has 17,334 members. Cruz has always strongly advocated for the sanctity of life and believes every life matters and should be protected by law. He has been on the forefront of this battle his entire adult life, from winning a case before the Supreme Court banning partial birth abortion to leading the fight to remove federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
The pro-life coalition will be chaired by Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council. Co-Chairs will include former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli; Carol Everett, Founder and President of Heidi Group and former abortion clinic owner; Jewels Green, former abortion clinic worker; Rebecca Hagelin, bestselling author and pro-life speaker; abortion survivor Gianna Jessen; Jason Jones, award winning filmmaker and pro-life activist; South Carolina Representative Wendy Nanney; Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue; Iowa Right to Life Board Member Loras Schulte; and Dave Sterrett, pro-life activist and author.
“I am encouraged by the incredible passion and support seen in these pro-life leaders who have coalesced behind our shared cause,” said Cruz. “Every single National Co-Chair in this coalition has led the charge for the pro-life cause and is a true inspiration. Without life, we have no liberty. The right to life is a pillar of our country and a God-given right that we must fight to protect. I am encouraged by the large number of people who have already signed up to take on this fight with me and look forward to what this coalition will be able to achieve under the incredible leadership of the Pro-Lifers for Cruz Coalition.”
