National Right to Life: Commemorating 50 Years of Defending Life

Editor’s note. 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the National Right to Life Committee. As part of NRLC’s annual Yearbook, which was distributed to attendees at the NRLC convention in Overland, Kansas, there were many tributes to the most effective single-issue pro-life organization in America. Over the next two weeks, we will be posting many of those tributes.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wi.)

“Nothing is more powerful than speaking out for those who cannot speak for themselves. National Right to Life has done this better than anyone. Your work has saved countless innocent lives and alleviated so much suffering.

“Beyond all the polices pursued and initiatives passed, you have built a beautiful, loving movement. You have instilled in the next generation the importance of believing in the the worth and dignity of every person. The next 50 years dawn bright for the cause of life. It is a great honor to stand with you.”
