WASHINGTON – National Right to Life has challenged Planned Parenthood Federation of America to denounce the threats of violence that have been perpetrated against employees of Texas Right to Life who have received death threats, bomb threats, and other threats of violence.

National Right to Life asks that Planned Parenthood clarify that it supports only peaceful, legal activities just as National Right to Life has done since its founding.

“National Right to Life has had a policy of peace since its inception,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “We condemn acts of violence just as we condemn the violence that has caused the deaths of over 62 million unborn babies since 1973.”

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.
