WASHINGTON, DC – Democrats For Life of America (DFLA) has announced its endorsement of Dana Outlaw in the Democratic Party primary for the 3rd Congressional District of North Carolina. The organization cited his commitment to whole-life principles.
“Dana Outlaw will be a consistent and reliable whole-life advocate in Congress,” said Kristen Day, the executive director of DFLA. “He will not only protect pre-born children but also support policies that give pregnant women real choices. He is a voice for the voiceless and all those who need assistance.”
In announcing his candidacy, Outlaw vowed to work across party lines for the good of the people. He proved his ability to put the people above partisanship after his community of New Bern was devastated by Hurricane Florence. Outlaw worked with the Trump Administration, FEMA, and Congress to secure valuable support to rebuild his community.
“Dana Outlaw has proven that he cares about community and family,” said Day. “His work to promote the well-being of all the members of his community following Hurricane Florence is consistent with whole-life values.”
DFLA supports whole-life policies that advocate for protecting life at all stages of human development and supporting legislation that gives families real choices to live full lives in their communities. DFLA was the only pro-life group to support the Affordable Care Act, and their pro-life Democratic leaders in Congress advocated successfully to remove pregnancy as a pre-existing condition and to add incentives for states to come up with innovative ways to lower the abortion rate through support for pregnant women. DFLA also opposes abortion, the death penalty, and assisted suicide.
“I’m honored to receive an endorsement by Democrats for Life,” said Dana Outlaw. I realize that being a pro-life Democrat will be a rarity in the Democratic caucus, but I see it as an advantage. “In Congress, I’ll use my unique position to bring Democrats and Republicans together to push for better pre-natal health care, and for policies that support the mother and the child after birth.”
