Concerned Women PAC Endorses
for Congress in Illinois’ 8th
WASHINGTON – Concerned Women Political Action Committee (CWPAC) has announced its endorsement of Maria Rodriguez for Congress in Illinois’ 8th Congressional District.
Concerned Women PAC is affiliated with Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with more than 500,000 grassroots members nationwide.
The 8th District is currently represented by liberal Democrat Congresswoman Melissa Bean. Congresswoman Bean has garnered an anti-family, pro-abortion record in her three terms in Congress. This Congress alone Rep. Bean has only voted with the CWALAC position one time.
Rep. Bean voted against the Stupak Amendment that would have prohibited coverage for abortions by insurance companies in the overall government take over of health care. She also voted in favor of the overall government take over of our health care system.
In addition, she voted in favor of the recent omnibus bill which included an increase of $10 million for Title X funding with the bulk of those taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood. The omnibus bill also gave $103 million to international “family planning” organizations, in effect forcing the American taxpayer to indirectly promote and fund abortions abroad.
“Maria is just the woman to take on Melissa Bean and win,” said Beverly LaHaye, founder and chairman of Concerned Women PAC. “Maria will be a strong pro-life voice in Congress.”
Concerned Women Political Action Committee was started in 2002 to help elect solid pro-family, pro-life conservatives to Congress. Concerned Women PAC sends out a monthly letter to members encouraging them to financially support candidates like Maria Rodriguez.
