New Jersey Right to Life PAC Endorses Erik Peterson for Congress

APR 8, 2022

Candidate for U.S. Congress in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, Peterson receives an early endorsement by the New Jersey Right to Life.

CLINTON, NJ, April 8, 2022 – Assemblyman Erik Peterson (NJ R-23) has won the strong backing of the New Jersey Right to Life PAC with its endorsement this week.

“During his time as an Assemblyman, Erik Peterson has been a strong and vocal supporter of the sanctity of human life. He has consistently voted pro-life and is the sponsor of many life-protective bills, including the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Erik has most recently signed on as a co-sponsor of legislation to repeal Governor Murphy’s shameful and unpopular 9 month abortion on demand act,” said Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.

Murphy’s abortion bill was pushed through the legislature at breakneck speed without the public’s knowledge in the lame duck session this past January.

“I am honored to receive such an important endorsement,” stated Peterson, “A truly humane and noble society is a civilization that values and promotes life above all else. Standing up for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, born and unborn, is what I will continue to do in Washington when elected for Congress.”

The Democrats are chiseling away at our freedoms, while many Establishment Republicans merrily watch. I have a track record of being fearless and vocal against the Democrats, and will fight for our freedom in Congress.”

The American Conservative Union’s CPAC has rated Peterson with a lifetime score of 95%, the highest of any New Jersey politician currently holding office. Among the Conservative principles considered in the ranking are taxes, regulation, healthcare, Second Amendment, religion, individual liberty, voting integrity, and the right to life.

“In the time I have known and worked with Assemblyman Peterson, he has never wavered in his pro-life position. “He will be a great addition to the Pro-Life Caucus in Congress. We are pleased to give him our endorsement for U.S. House of Representatives in the 7th Congressional  District,” said Tasy.

During Peterson’s 12 years on the New Jersey Assembly, he has consistently been rated “A” by the New Jersey Right to Life, the top ranking provided, indicating Peterson’s strong support for the right to life policies.
