WASHINGTON — As day three opens on the Republican National Convention, tonight’s speakers will once again represent millions of Americans who support President Trump and Vice President Pence because of their dedication to the right to life.

“Unlike Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the vast majority of Americans do not support the current policy of abortion on demand,” said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. “Last night’s speakers clearly showed that President Trump and Vice President Pence are serious about making the protection of the most vulnerable in our society a priority.”

On Tuesday night, several featured convention speakers spoke out on the right to life. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director turned pro-life activist, said, “For me, abortion’s real. I know what it sounds like, what it smells like. I’ve been the perpetrator…to these babies…to these women.” She then spoke about what is at stake this fall, saying, “This election is a choice between two radical, anti-life activists, and the most pro-life President we’ve ever had.” Nicholas Sandmann, a high school student who endured the “cancel” culture and attacks by the media after a confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial last year, spoke about how President Trump had “distinguished himself as one of the most pro-life presidents in the history of this country.”

Narrating the opening video, actor Jon Voight told us that, “Without life, there can be no liberty.”

“President Trump and Vice President Pence recognize that without the right to life nothing else matters,” said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. “Our founding fathers listed ‘life’ first because it is the ultimate right and must precede all others.”

Democratic nominees for President and Vice President, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, support the Democratic platform of unlimited abortion even through birth. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have both been endorsed by extreme pro-abortion groups including: NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the National Organization for Women PAC.

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.
