September 16th, 2014 — Representative Tom Marino (R-PA-10), Lycoming County and current candidate for reelection in Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District issued the following statement regarding an endorsement from the National Right to Life Committee:

For me this endorsement is an honor and a cause I will continue to support in the next Congress. Though my voting record is 100% in-line with the mission of this important group, it is imperative to remain focused on the work still ahead of us.

In particular we must focus on legislation that repeals Obamacare components, which allow government funds to be used forabortions. However the ideal situation is to repeal this harmful law completely.

The citizens of my district, and millions of Americans nationwide, know how precious and sacred the gift of life is. They know every child has the potential to become a great American capable to contributing to our nation’s future. I have witnessed this first hand with my own children. My wife and I adopted our children and sought to provide them with happy childhoods and bright futures. I cannot imagine a situation where they may not have been born. Our children, and so many like them, are testaments that life is sacred and should be protected by our representatives in government and citizens across our great land.”
