WASHINGTON – The following is a statement by Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

National Right to Life congratulates Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on his election as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Speaker McCarthy’s leadership in the House as Minority Leader showed his commitment to the right to life and he has made it clear that advancing the right to life and protecting women and their unborn children will be a priority in the 118th Congress.

Speaker McCarthy will stand up to President Biden and the pro-abortion Democrats who have reversed protective pro-life policies and have worked to make unlimited abortion the law of the land.

We look forward to working with the House leadership team led by Speaker McCarthy.

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of affiliates in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
