National Right to Life on the GOP Platform


WASHINGTON — Today, the Republican National Committee Platform Committee approved the draft language of the Republican Party Platform.

“We thank the platform committee for its hard work ensuring that the party’s goal of protecting women and their preborn children is clearly stated,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “In contrast to what the Democratic Party offers to women and their preborn children, the Republican Party Platform offers life and hope. The Democratic Party is the party of unlimited abortion—even abortions late in pregnancy.”

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris along with leading Democrats in Congress have employed a relentless, whole-of-government approach in their efforts to bring unlimited abortion to every state.

“To appease the abortion industry and its supporters, the Biden-Harris Administration and pro-abortion Democrats in Congress have worked relentlessly and intentionally to endanger the lives of unborn babies,” said Tobias. “For three and a half years, the Biden-Harris Administration has rolled out the red carpet for the abortion industry.”

Contrary to the Biden Administration and the Democratic Party, President Trump throughout his presidency championed policies designed to safeguard the lives of both unborn children and their mothers from unlimited abortions.
