Endorsements

Sheldon was endorsed by the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund on March 24, 2014.[6]

State Representative Donna Sheldon has been a longtime champion for Georgia women and unborn children and we are proud to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Congress. Rep. Sheldon was a lead sponsor of a historic 2012 measure to protect babies after 20 weeks, more than halfway through pregnancy and past the point at which they can feel pain. With her support, Georgia became one of a dozen states to pass this compassionate, common ground legislation in recent years...Donna Sheldon is exactly the type of courageous and resolute pro-life candidate that the SBA List Candidate Fund exists to support. We hope to see her victorious on Election Day so she can go on to serve women and families across America,” said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser.[6]
