Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund announced its endorsement of Dr. Joan Perry in North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District special election to fill the vacant seat of late Congressman Walter Jones. A primary election will be held on April 30, 2019.
“We are proud to endorse Joan Perry, a principled pro-life, pro-woman leader,” said former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Dr. Perry’s voice is needed more than ever in Washington as Democrats double down on their extreme agenda of abortion on demand through birth and even infanticide. As a mom of five and a pediatrician, unborn children and their mothers could not have a stronger champion than Joan Perry standing up to the abortion lobby. We urge all pro-life voters in the 3rd District to get out to the polls and support her on April 30.”
Dr. Joan Perry is the mother of five sons and a board-certified pediatrician with over thirty years’ experience in private practice. She graduated from medical school and completed her residency at UNC-Chapel Hill and later taught as an adjunct faculty member. She was appointed to serve on the UNC Board of Governors, Governor Pat McCrory’s health and human services transition team, and Governor Jim Martin’s North Carolina Day Care Commission. She lives in Kinston with her husband Jimbo Perry, where they are active in their church, youth mentorship, and charitable work.
SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
