National Right to Life Statement on 10-year-old Rape Victim Who Received an Abortion

Jul 14, 2022 | 2022 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON — The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, President, National Right to Life:

No child should ever go through such tragic abuse as was reportedly perpetrated on this girl by a criminal in this country illegally. Those who commit such crimes should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Not only has a child been abused in one of the worst ways imaginable, this has also cost another child their life.

It is doubly tragic that this girl is being used as a pawn by the pro-abortion movement for political purposes. We urge all Americans to pray for the victim and her family.

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.
