National Right to Life congratulates GOP Platform Committee leadership

Published on

The National Right to Life Committee today praised the selection of Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), and Gov. Mary Fallin (R-Okla.) as co-chairs of the Republican Platform Committee.

In selecting Sen. Barrasso, Rep. Foxx, and Gov. Fallin to head the Platform Committee, the Republican National Committee has sent a strong message that the pro-life planks in the Republican platform will steadfastly reflect commitment to the right to life, and that the GOP will proudly stand as the party of life,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

Sen. Barrasso has maintained a 100% pro-life voting record since joining the U.S. Senate in 2007. Rep. Foxx also has a 100% pro-life voting record, and has been a faithful and articulate leader for life as a member of the U.S. House. Gov. Fallin has been a stalwart defender of society’s most vulnerable members, first with a 100% pro-life record in the U.S. House, and now as a strong pro-life leader as governor of Oklahoma.

As governor, Mary Fallin signed into law 18 pro-life bills protecting unborn children and their mothers during these past five and a half years,” said Tobias.

As adopted in Tampa, Florida, in 2012, the current Republican platform reads, “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.”

We applaud Sen. Barrasso, Rep. Foxx, and Gov. Fallin, and look forward to working with them to ensure that the pro-life values embodied in the Republican platform continue to move us toward a society that welcomes the vulnerable in life, and gives them the full protection of our laws,” Tobias added.

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) recently extended its heartfelt congratulations to the leadership of the GOP Platform Committee for their steadfast commitment to pro-life principles. This recognition highlights the significant strides made by the Republican Party in upholding and advocating for the sanctity of human life, particularly through their work on the party’s platform.

Emphasizing Pro-Life Values

The GOP Platform Committee, under the leadership of prominent Republican figures, has consistently prioritized the protection of unborn children and the promotion of a culture of life. The NRLC’s congratulatory message reflects the alignment of values between the pro-life movement and the Republican Party, particularly in their shared commitment to defending the rights of the unborn.

Key Achievements and Pro-Life Stances

In its recent platforms, the GOP has reinforced its pro-life stance through several key policies and commitments:

  1. Opposition to Taxpayer-Funded Abortion: The platform includes firm opposition to the use of taxpayer dollars for funding abortions, both domestically and internationally. This stance is consistent with the long-standing principles of the Hyde Amendment and the Mexico City Policy, which prohibit federal funds from being used for abortions in various contexts.
  2. Support for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act: The GOP platform advocates for the protection of infants who survive abortion attempts, ensuring that they receive the same medical care and legal protections as any other newborn.
  3. Promotion of Adoption and Alternative Solutions: The platform emphasizes the importance of promoting adoption as a viable and compassionate alternative to abortion. This includes support for policies that make adoption more accessible and affordable for families.
  4. Defense of Conscience Rights: Recognizing the importance of protecting healthcare providers who object to participating in abortions on moral or religious grounds, the platform supports conscience protections for doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals.

Celebrating Leadership and Commitment

The NRLC’s congratulatory message specifically acknowledges the efforts of GOP Platform Committee leaders who have played pivotal roles in shaping these pro-life policies. Their leadership has been instrumental in ensuring that the Republican Party remains a strong advocate for the unborn and for policies that uphold the dignity and value of human life.

Looking Ahead

As the political landscape continues to evolve, the NRLC remains committed to working closely with the GOP and other pro-life advocates to advance policies that protect the unborn and support women facing unplanned pregnancies. The organization recognizes that the fight for life is an ongoing journey that requires unwavering dedication and collaboration.

The NRLC’s congratulations to the GOP Platform Committee leadership serve as both a recognition of past achievements and a call to continue striving for a society that respects and protects the inherent value of every human life. The partnership between the pro-life movement and the Republican Party is crucial in advancing these goals and ensuring that the voices of the unborn are heard and protected.


The National Right to Life Committee’s congratulatory message to the GOP Platform Committee leadership underscores the importance of strong, principled leadership in the fight to protect the unborn. By recognizing the achievements and commitments of the GOP, the NRLC highlights the critical role that political platforms play in shaping policies that promote a culture of life. As the pro-life movement continues to advocate for the most vulnerable among us, the collaboration between the NRLC and the Republican Party remains a vital force in the ongoing effort to defend the sanctity of human life.
