On Thursday, Jonathan Mason announced that his campaign for State Representative in District 30 had been endorsed by Tennessee Right to Life for his steadfast pro-life views and commitment to the unborn.
“Of all endorsements, the Tennessee Right to Life is a very special endorsement for me. I was raised in a family whose doors were always open to foster children,” Mason wrote in a press release. “Life is a sacred gift and every life is special and worth protecting. This endorsement reflects not only my conservative views, but the way I was raised and the foundation for which I will serve the people of District 30.”
Tennessee Right to Life is committed to advocating and defending the right to life of all innocent human beings, born and unborn. This commitment is derived from a realization that each human being, from the time of fertilization to natural death, has immeasurable dignity and an unalienable right to life.
The press release states that Mason’s opponent Esther Helton voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, did not meet the criteria of Tennessee Right to Life, and did not meet with the organization.
