While I am not the biggest fan of Georgia Right to Life, I do realize they carry significant influence in some circles. I really question their endorsements in some races that could have no bearing on their goals, but that is a story for a different day. The Attorney General post is one that I feel GRTL has some business in getting involved in. If Georgia is going to tighten up abortion laws, the Attorney General will be the one fighting to uphold the law in the courts – so you can see how the position is related. Of course an AG could argue to uphold a law they may disagree with, but I digress.
I’ve received a press release from the Max Wood campaign indicating he has been certified as ProLife by GRTL. I’m unsure of the other candidates. I have been told that Preston may have also received the certification. If any of the other campaigns would like to clarify, I’ll edit the post accordingly. Press Releases below the fold.
Georgia Right to Life has certified that Max Wood, Republican candidate for Georgia Attorney General, is a supporter of Pro-Life initiatives.
Georgia Right to Life officials sent out a questionnaire detailing specific stands on abortion. The officials determined from Wood’s answers that he follows the philosophies of Georgia Right to Life.
“As a Conservative and as a Christian, I will work to protect the rights of all Georgians, including the unborn,” Wood said. “The state Attorney General is at the forefront of the abortion fight and I’m glad Georgians know where I stand in that fight.”
Wood served eight years as the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, an area that covers 70 counties. He was appointed to the position by President George W. Bush.
Wood believes his courtroom experience in private practice, in the military and as a prosecutor in state and federal courts makes him the only candidate in the Attorney General’s race with the background needed to guide us through these tough times.
