Lonegan Declares Unwavering Support for Life

Hackensack, NJ -- Conservative republican Steve Lonegan, candidate for Congress in New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District, declared his complete support for the Pro-Life cause at the annual Rally for Life sponsored by New Jersey Right to Life in Trenton.

“The fight for the right to life is the first and most fundamental right that government must protect,” Lonegan said.  “As your congressman, I will fight for life every chance I get.”

In 2007, Lonegan led the fight to defeat Governor Jon Corzine’s embryonic stem cell bond referendum which would have indebted New Jerseyeans over $450 million for a morally-bereft scheme to fund unproven research on defenseless human life.

“They said that our fight to defeat embryonic stem cell research couldn’t be won,” Lonegan said.  “But we did win, we will win again, and we won’t stop winning until every human life is protected from conception until natural death.”

Lonegan also pledged to co-sponsor the Pain Capable Child Protection Act in Congress.

“The House has already passed this bill but the Senate has not acted,” Lonegan said.  “The President is committed to signing the bill and I will do everything I can to get it to his desk.”

Lonegan has already been endorsed by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Bergen County State Senator Gerry Cardinale, Mrs. Ann Kievit, President of the Northwest New Jersey Taxpayers' Association, Rev. Greg Quinlan, President of the Center for Garden State Families on behalf of New Jersey for a Conservative Majority, Alexander Roubian, President of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS), United States Senator Ted Cruz, Warren County State Senator Mike Doherty, Sussex County State Senator Steve Oroho, Assemblyman Parker Space, Assemblyman Hal Wirths, Sussex County State Committeewoman Jill Space, Morris County State Senator Joe Pennacchio, Assemblyman John DiMaio, Assemblyman Erik Peterson, Assemblywoman Betty Lou DeCroce, Warren County Freeholder Richard D. Gardner, Warren County Freeholder Director Edward J. Smith, and Warren County Freeholder Deputy Director Jason J. Sarnoski.
