ATLANTA – Georgia Life Alliance Committee (GLAC) has issued an official pro-life certification to Public Service Commissioner Chuck Eaton ahead of the critical December 4 Runoff Election.

“It is critical, now more than ever, to ensure that leaders at all levels of our government understand that the right to life is the fundamental right upon which all others are built,” said GLA Executive Director Joshua Edmonds. “That’s why I’m proud to announce that Public Service Commissioner Chuck Eaton has been officially certified as a pro-life candidate by GLAC.”

Georgia Life Alliance Committee has conducted a comprehensive application and certification process since 2015 to certify candidates who support GLA’s mission to build a culture of life in Georgia. The GLA Pro-life Certification packet can be found on the GLA website.

“I call on every pro-life Georgian to ensure they do their part to support pro-life candidates like Chuck Eaton in the December 4th election,” said Edmonds. “We can’t let radicals rise to power in Georgia. Every vote counts.”

Commissioner Eaton’s individual candidate questionnaire can be found here.

ATLANTA – Monday, Georgia Life Alliance Committee (GLAC) issued letters certifying as pro-life Congressional incumbents Tom Graves (R-Ranger) and Austin Scott (R-Tifton).

“Congressman Tom Graves has a 100% pro-life voting record with the National Right to Life and other leading pro-life organizations. Tom cast at least eleven pro-life votes in the 114th Congress, each time proving his commitment to protecting the unborn and honoring the sanctity of human life,” said Emily Matson, Executive Director. “Congressman Austin Scott has consistently supported key pro-life legislation both in Washington and at the Georgia Capitol. Austin is a proven advocate for the unborn.”

GLAC wholeheartedly supported the efforts of National Right to Life, Susan B. Anthony List, and other pro-life organizations in the joint-strategy to place H.R. 3762 – which would have defunded the overwhelming majority of Planned Parenthood’s government dollars – on the President’s desk. President Obama vetoed the measure on January 8, 2016. “Both Congressman Graves and Congressman Scott worked to successfully present the first-ever opportunity for a President to defund the giant abortion provider.   To characterize the political capital expended by these Congressmen in any other way is simply not true.” said Matson.

Georgia Life Alliance Committee unveiled its “GLA Certified Pro-Life” application and certification process in early April. GLAC offers candidates for public office the opportunity to apply for “Pro-Life Certification” in two steps: (1) by completing the GLA Candidate Questionnaire on abortion-related legislation and (2) by applying for certification based upon evidence of a pro-life voting history or evidence of past pro-life efforts and thought on the part of the applicant candidate. The GLA Pro-life Certification packet can be found at GLAC website: http://georgialifealliance.com/2016-candidate-surveys

On April 28, 2016, GLAC issued Pro-Life Certifications to Congressmen Barry Loudermilk, Doug Collins, and Rick Allen.  For a complete list of candidates certified by GLAC, please contact us.
