National Right to Life Praises Republicans’ “Commitment to America” and Its Promise to Protect the Lives of Unborn Children and Their Mothers

Democrats Would Embrace Abortion at Any Time and for Any Reason

WASHINGTON — Today, Republican leadership presented its “Commitment to America,” a statement of the Republican Party and what it stands for—which includes protecting unborn lives.

“National Right to Life praises Republican leaders for their commitment to women and their unborn children,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life (NRLC). “In contrast, the Democratic Party is pursuing abortion for any reason and at any time in pregnancy.”

The Democratic Party has committed to passing the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA). The Democratic proposal would make sweeping changes, including expanding taxpayer funding of abortion, and eliminating requirements that a woman be given information about the development of her unborn child so she can make an informed decision.

Tobias continued, “The Democrats’ so-called Women’s Health Protection Act is far-reaching legislation that would entrench abortion on demand in federal law and running roughshod over the will of the American people. Democrats would endanger the lives of women and their unborn babies.”

The Democratic bill would invalidate most previously enacted federal limits on abortion, including federal conscience protection laws and most, if not all, limits on government funding of abortion. The Democrats’ legislation would also invalidate state laws regarding parental involvement and consent for a minor’s abortion.

“The Democrats’ legislation would nullify nearly all existing protective state laws,” said Jennifer Popik, J.D., director of Federal Legislation for National Right to Life. “In addition, the Democrats would also prohibit states from adopting new protective laws in the future.”

Popik continued, “The difference between Democrats and Republicans couldn’t be plainer. While Democrats maintain a nearly uniform support of abortion without limits until birth, Republicans seek to protect unborn children and their mothers.”
