Human Life Political Action Committee has surveyed candidates for the U. S. House, Senate, and the State Legislature. 

More endorsements may be made as surveys are returned.


We urge citizens to review all candidates listed below.  Some candidates have a complete pro-life position and have received the Human Life PAC endorsement. Other candidates responding to the survey are in substantial or partial agreement with Human Life PAC's pro-life positions, and they deserve your consideration. 


Human Life PAC endorses pro-life incumbents in races where the incumbent faces a pro-life challenger.

When a previously endorsed candidate and current office holder runs for a higher/different office, that candidate receives the endorsement. 


“The care of all human life and happiness, and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government,” Thomas Jefferson.  The Declaration of Independence affirms that Life is first necessary before liberty or the pursuit of happiness can exist. Talk of human rights is but a charade, if it is only for the “chosen” of the human family.   


Based on qualifying criteria, Human Life PAC has endorsed candidates who assent to the truth that all human beings are valuable – the woman, her preborn child, those with disabilities, the elderly and the terminally ill.  


Endorsed candidates are indicated by YES in the Endorsed column.  

Candidates who are in substantial or partial agreement are included in this list.
