The Republican Party’s Platform Committee has adopted language that is specifically dedicated to the protection of mothers and their unborn children.

The Republican Platform Committee has today adopted language to reaffirm its support for legal protection for unborn children. The platform states, “Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.”

“The Republican Party is the party of life,” said National Right to Life President Carol Tobias. “The language adopted today makes a strong stand supporting the most vulnerable members of our society. We applaud the Republican Party and the dedicated members of the platform committee for reaffirming and renewing their efforts on behalf of mothers and their unborn children.”

The platform acknowledges that previous Congresses, under Republican leadership, enacted the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act and a ban on partial-birth abortions. In light of this, the platform calls for legislation to prohibit abortions for sex-selection and to protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion. Furthermore, the platform “salutes” those who provide women facing an unplanned pregnancy with support and alternatives, empowering them to choose life.

Additionally, the platform asserts that the Republican Party is opposed to the non-consensual withholding or withdrawal of care or treatment, including food and water, from individuals with disabilities. The platform that was adopted by the committee in Tampa today will be presented to convention delegates for official adoption next week.

Mrs. Tobias is in Tampa and can be interviewed on site. To arrange an interview, call the National Right to Life Communications Department at (202) 626-8825.

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) was established in 1968 and is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. It is comprised of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and over 3,000 local chapters. The NRLC is recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement and works to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia through legislation and education.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
