New Jersey Right to Life State PAC endorses Parker Space for Senate and Dawn Fantasia & Mike Inganamort for Assembly
Today pro-life Assemblyman and Senate candidate Parker Space and his pro-life running mates for Assembly, Dawn Fantasia and Mike Inganamort, announced their endorsement by the New Jersey Right to Life State PAC for their candidacies in the 24th District in the November 7th General Election.
“It is an honor to be endorsed by leaders in the pro-life movement,” said Space (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris), who along with his wife Jill have three adult children and one grandchild. “Working to advance the cause of life in Trenton has not been easy with radical liberal Democrats in charge of the agenda there, but our allies in this fight know where Dawn, Mike, and I stand and we appreciate their support.”
In the Assembly, Space has stood up for those who have no voice by opposing taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and opposing physician-assisted suicide. After the unexpected death of Assemblyman Ron Dancer, he introduced the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" (AKA the 20/20 bill or "Children in the Womb Feel Pain" bill) which follows science and bans abortion 20 weeks or more after fertilization – after which the unborn child is sensitive to pain. He is also the sponsor of other vital legislation, such as a bill to require the availability of a sonogram before an abortion is performed, requiring parental notification for a minor’s medical procedure, and the "New Jersey Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act" to protect babies who can live if they were born alive in an abortion or attempted abortion.
“As a pro-life Catholic and mother of three, I am appreciative of this endorsement and I look forward to continuing to work with pro-life leaders and activists if elected to the Assembly,” said Fantasia.
As a Sussex County Commissioner in November 2021, Fantasia moved for adoption and voted for a resolution opposing the so-called “Reproductive Freedom Act.” She was previously endorsed by the New Jersey Right to Life State PAC in previous years while running for County Commissioner.
“Legislation like this as well as the actual law Governor Murphy and the Democrat-controlled legislature enacted to codify abortion in New Jersey statutes are an abomination,” stated Fantasia. “The concept of allowing abortion right up until the moment of birth should make any rational adult sick to their stomachs.”
As a student at American University in Washington, DC, Inganamort helped found the university’s first-ever pro-life student organization – “AU Students for Life” – and organized diaper drives for one of Washington’s crisis pregnancy centers. While an aide to pro-life Congressman Scott Garrett, he participated in the annual March for Life in Washington. Inganamort is currently the Mayor of Chester Township.
“The Murphy agenda, which allows for abortions up to the moment of birth, is extreme and ignores the established medical consensus on fetal pain and viability,” said Inganamort, the father of three young children. “Stopping taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, enacting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and reestablishing parents’ vital role with respect to their children’s medical decisions are top priorities for Parker, Dawn, and me.”
Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life PAC, said it was an easy decision to endorse Space, Fantasia, and Inganamort in the November 7th Election.
“Parker is a pro-life leader in the New Jersey Legislature,” said Tasy. “I have had the chance to get to know Dawn and Mike and I know their sincerity in wanting to join Parker in the legislature to continue the fight for the protection of the unborn against Murphy and his liberal cohorts in the legislature.”
“Pro-Life voters in Sussex, Morris, and Warren Counties should be proud to join me in support of Parker, Dawn, and Mike and vote for them this November,” Tasy concluded.
