National Right to Life joins affiliate in urging passage of SB 529

WASHINGTON – The following statement from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life groups and more than 3,000 local chapters.  It may be attributed to NRLC Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D.

National Right to Life Committee joins with our state affiliate, Georgia Right to Life, in urging the Georgia House of Representatives to pass SB 529, a bill that would prevent abortions discriminatorily based on the race or sex of the unborn child. 

These appalling forms of discrimination which take the life of an unborn child simply because of his or her sex or race have no place in America. 

It is a sad fact that sex-selection abortion, something once thought of as confined to certain parts of Asia, has spread to the United States.

It is also a travesty that abortion is the leading cause of death in the African American Community.  The fact that more African American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 37 years of legalized abortion than the total number of African American deaths from all other causes combined is unacceptable.

The most fundamental of all civil rights is the right to life.  No nation committed to equality and human dignity can tolerate this shocking, discriminatory disregard for its own children.

Georgia Right to Life is the Georgia state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee.  The National Right to Life Committee is the nation’s largest pro-life group with affiliates in all 50 states and over 3,000 local chapters nationwide.
