National Right to Life Launches National Grassroots Lobbying Campaign

Jan 22, 2010 | 2010 Press Releases

eLobby for Life Week calls for 250,000 emails to Congress

 WASHINGTON – As the nation commemorates the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life groups and more than 3,000 local chapters, launched eLobby for Life Week, a nationwide grassroots lobbying campaign to voice opposition to expanding federal funding of abortion in any health care legislation that comes before Congress.  The campaign begins today and runs through Friday, January 29.

“As pro-abortion Democratic leaders in the U.S. House and Senate again work behind closed doors to hammer out a health care reform bill, now is the time for the  large majority of Americans who oppose federal abortion funding and federal abortion mandates to make their voices heard,” said NRLC Executive Director David N. O’Steen, Ph.D.  “All members of Congress need to hear the message: using federal subsidies to pay for abortion coverage through health care ‘reform’ is completely unacceptable.”

In an email distributed to supporters across the country, NRLC is encouraging pro-life Americans to contact their member of Congress through the National Right to Life Legislative Action Center and then reach out to pro-life friends, family, neighbors and churches through personal contact, email, blogs and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and urge them to do the same. 

“Never have the voices of pro-life Americans been more important than they are at this moment in our nation’s history,” O’Steen added.

The National Right to Life Committee, the nation=s largest pro-life group, is a federation of affiliates in all 50 states and more than 3,000 local chapters nationwide.  National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect those threatened by abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted suicide.
