The state’s oldest and largest pro-life organization has endorsed Representative John Gillespie
for TN House District 97 representing Shelby County. Citing Gillespie’s demonstrated
commitment to defending all of Tennessee’s vulnerable unborn children, the organization
underscored their support. “Representative Gillespie represents Tennessee’s pro-life values and will be a consistent voice for those who can’t speak for themselves,” said Roger Kane, president of Tennessee Right to Life Political Action Committee.
“Tennesseans have made great strides in restoring common sense protections for the unborn
and for abortion-vulnerable women, girls and families,” said Kane. “But there remains much
work to do which will require courage and conviction now that the Supreme Court has
overturned Roe v. Wade.” Tennessee Right to Life strongly believes that Representative
Gillespie’s record of support for the sanctity of human life makes him qualified to speak for those who have no other voice. We urge every pro-life voter in the 97th House District to work and vote for his re-election.
