The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) with the coming election renewed its call for voters to elect candidates who support the best for children. 

ACPeds offers guidance to voters in its statement “Elect Candidates Who Support the Best for Children.” Dr. Joseph Zanga, the author of the statement, urges all Americans to “Please use your power to elect leaders who will put the needs of children first.”

In a statement emailed on Tuesday, ACPeds said:

As we step to the ballot box we must note that those for whom we vote work for us. We elect them to guide our country for all our benefit, not just theirs. We don’t vote for the debt burden that will befall our children, they do. A majority of us object to the unrestricted killing of infants before their birth, why don’t a majority of our elected officials? A bit more than 500 federal officials, and countless others at the local and state levels, burden children and families while often exempting themselves. 

We the People have the right and ability to change this.

ACPeds is a national medical association of licensed physicians and healthcare professionals who specialize in the care of infants, children, and adolescents. The mission of the College is to enable all children to reach their optimal physical and emotional health and well-being.
