WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life political action committee, announced its endorsement of State Representative Marilinda Garcia for U.S. Congress in New Hampshire’s 2nd district.
“State Representative Garcia is a rising star in politics and we are proud to endorse her campaign. Marilinda has proven track record of defending life in New Hampshire and is an original member of the SBA List’s National Pro-Life Woman’s Caucus,” said Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “We look forward to seeing this natural and enthusiastic pro-life leader defeat pro-abortion incumbent Congresswoman Ann Kuster in November.
“Rep. Kuster is a longtime ally of the abortion lobby who last year voted against a compassionate, common ground limit on abortion after 20 weeks – more than halfway through pregnancy. Kuster’s extreme pro-abortion voting record shows she is more focused on pleasing Planned Parenthood, rather than representing the majority of Americans who support common sense measures to protect women and children.
Elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 2007, Marilinda Garcia is currently serving her fourth term. Previously, she worked for three years as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused and neglected children in New Hampshire’s District Court. She has served as the Northeast Regional director for the National Foundation of Women Legislators and on the Advisory Board of the American Council of Young Political Leaders.
Congresswoman Ann Kuster holds a 0% voting record with the National Right to Life Committee. In June 2013, Kuster voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill that would protect unborn children at 20-weeks, more than halfway through pregnancy.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its affiliated Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women at all levels of government. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
