RIGGS: Wins Pro-Life endorsement

| May 16, 2020 1:00 AM

Idaho Chooses Life has endorsed Peter Riggs because of his thoughtful responses to our Candidate Survey. He scored a 97 on a range of critical pro-Life issues. In fact, it was one of the best responses we received from any candidate running this year.

One of his opponents in this primary did not respond to the survey. The other scored just 75.

If we are going to continue making progress in eliminating the scourge of abortion in this society, we need thoughtful men and women in the Legislature willing to engage in the difficult process of battling Planned Parenthood and their allies.

We have made much progress, as Idaho now has the 3rd lowest abortion rate in the country. But there is so much more to do. We cannot rest until every new life is protected by the law, and valued by this culture.

We believe that Peter Riggs will be a powerful ally in the Idaho Senate as we relentlessly pursue that mission.
