Tennessee Pastors Network Issues Pro-Life Pledge for Candidates to Show Commitment to Defund Planned Parenthood

TNPN President Dale Walker: “Time for candidates to put promises in writing”

Pastor Dale Walker, President of the Tennessee Pastors Network (www.tnpastors.net), is calling on Tennessee candidates for Governor, Congress, State House and State Senate to put their “pro-life” words into action. The Tennessee Pastors Network Pro-Life Pledge can be printed out by candidates from the Tennessee Pastors Network website and returned with their signatures and those of two witnesses. Tennessee Pastors Network will list those who have signed the Pro-Life Pledge on the website.

“During campaign season, a lot of candidates SAY they are pro-life in order to get votes, then they get to Nashville or Washington, DC and fail to live up to their promises,” Walker said. “The Tennessee Pastors Network Pro-Life Pledge puts their promise in writing and we will display their broken promise in black and white in their next election if they betray the voters of Tennessee who trusted them to defund Planned Parenthood.”

The Tennessee Pastors Network Pro-Life Pledge reads as follows:

I, ________________________, pledge to the citizens of the State of Tennessee and to the American people that I will:


ONE, oppose any and all efforts to fund Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars; and,

TWO, vote against any bill, referendum or other form of legislative action that includes any funding for Planned Parenthood.

Walker added that the Pledge is simple, clear and direct, with no loopholes. “Planned Parenthood uses millions of taxpayer dollars to fund their operations that kill innocent children each and every day. Despite repeated promises to defund it, too many of our elected officials say one thing on the campaign trail and betray us after they get elected. Those who refuse to sign this simple written Pledge are making it clear that they WILL continue to vote to fund this despicable practice.”
