Pro-life groups at the state and national levels have thrown their support behind former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla. to be Florida’s next governor.

G. Halisky, the chairman of Florida Right to Life PAC, threw his group’s support behind DeSantis in a letter forwarded to the media on Friday.

“On behalf of Florida Right to Life PAC, I am pleased to inform you that we have given your candidacy our endorsement. The endorsement indicates that you are the best pro-life candidate in the race and is a recommendation that our members and supporters vote for you,” Halisky wrote.

“Our endorsements are being published on the Florida Right to Life website and sent to our chapters. The endorsement may be used as your campaign sees fit. With best wishes for the success of your campaign.”

The National Right to Life Committee endorsed DeSantis on Wednesday. David O’Steen and Karen Cross wrote DeSantis to endorse him and contrasted his record with that of Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate.

“National Right to Life, the federation of state right-to-life organizations, is pleased to endorse you for election as governor,” O’Steen and Cross wrote. “You are a strong advocate for life. You support pro-life legislation, including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would protect unborn children by prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods. You oppose the use of government funds for abortion, and you oppose giving hundreds of millions of dollars of government funds to abortion providers. In contrast, your opponent, Andrew Gillum, supports a policy of abortion on demand, and using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion.

“This endorsement reflects your commitment to strengthening a culture of life,” they added. “We look forward to working with you to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family – unborn children and medically dependent or disabled persons – whose lives are threatened by abortion or euthanasia.  All voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to elect you as governor so that you can work to advance vital pro-life public policies.”
