WASHINGTON – National Right to Life Committee, the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, congratulates pro-life President-elect Donald Trump on his win against pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton. We also congratulate the Trump campaign team, led by Kellyanne Conway, on running a brilliant campaign against a candidate who had unprecedented financial resources and the backing of the mainstream media.
“Clinton and the Democratic Party have taken the most extreme abortion position possible, including support for late abortions when the baby can feel pain and seeking to change the law so that taxpayer dollars would be used to fund abortion on demand,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Donald Trump took a strong, principled pro-life position, heard by millions of Americans in the third debate. He never backed down on his opposition to abortion and he won.”
National Right to Life also congratulates pro-life Republican senators including Marco Rubio (FL), Todd Young (IN), Roy Blunt (MO), Richard Burr (NC), Pat Toomey (PA), Ron Johnson (WI), and Kelly Ayotte (currently leading in NH) who all faced strong pro-abortion Democratic opposition and prevailed, thereby keeping senate leadership in pro-life hands.
National Right to Life’s political committees, the National Right to Life Victory Fund and the National Right to Life Political Action Committee, were active in reaching millions of identified pro-life voters by mail, phone, and radio ads, on behalf of Trump and pro-life senate candidates in swing states and the key senate races.
Congratulations also to pro-life House members who prevailed and kept the U.S. House under pro-life leadership.
“Pro-life voters showed that protecting unborn children is not only the right position, but the best winning political position,” said Tobias. “National Right to Life looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and the newly elected pro-life Congress on policy initiatives to protect the lives of unborn children.”
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.
