National Right to Life Praises Vice President Mike Pence for Continuing to “Stand Strong for the Right to Life”

Oct 8, 2020 | 2020 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON—During Wednesday night’s vice-presidential debate, Vice President Mike Pence affirmed the Trump/Pence Administration’s stance on protecting the right to life of the most vulnerable among us:

I couldn’t be more proud to serve as vice president to a president who stands without apology for the sanctity of human life. I’m pro-life—I don’t apologize for it.

And this is another one of those cases where there is such a dramatic contrast. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support taxpayer funding of abortion all the way up to the moment of birth, late-term abortion, they want to increase funding to Planned Parenthood of America. Now, for our part…we’ll continue to stand strong for the right to life.

“We praise Vice President Mike Pence for once again demonstrating that the Trump/Pence Administration is about protecting innocent human lives,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Following re-election, both President Trump and Vice President Pence will stand firm in continuing their work to protect those threatened by abortion and infanticide.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates 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, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
