A Victory for Unborn
Babies, A Victory for You
Every once in a while in
this great movement of ours, there occurs a game-changer, some event
of such consequence that it changes the tone of the debate.
The passage of Nebraska’s
law to ban abortions after a child can feel pain might be one such
National Right to Life not
only helped Nebraska Right to Life with critical information and
support to pass the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Prevention Act,” NRLC
has also helped state Right to Life groups pass countless lifesaving
bills over the past three decades.
How does NRLC assist states
to defeat pro-abortionists who possess almost limitless resources?
We combine our expertise in matters of constitutional law and
legislative strategy with the passionate work of local pro-lifers to
bring about an outcome that wouldn’t happen otherwise: passage of
pro-life laws designed to save lives and to move the Supreme Court
toward a reassessment of Roe v. Wade.
Such cutting-edge work
deserves your support. Or, to put it another way, your support for
this kind of work will save lives—millions of lives.
Since the Supreme Court’s
1989 Webster decision gave states more latitude to pass laws
restricting and regulating abortion, the annual number of abortions
in the U.S. has fallen by 400,000. Laws passed with the help of
National Right to Life account for a large share of those millions
of saved lives.
The passage of Nebraska’s
“Pain-Capable Unborn Child Prevention Act” is just one illustration
of how active National Right to Life has already been this year.
Your help has made it possible for NRLC, working in tandem with
local pro-life activists, to expand our presence in local
communities; to pass pro-life laws that save lives; to block
pro-abortion initiatives; and to educate Americans on the value of
every human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
But we have a lot more to
do. We must reverse provisions in the recently passed health care
bill (ObamaCare) that threaten unborn lives. Provisions that
threaten to ration lifesaving medical care have to be rescinded.
Committee chairs in Congress
who wish to use their power to expand access to abortion, or to even
make you pay for abortions with your tax dollars, have to be exposed
and their efforts blocked.
Nominees to our courts, who
take a sacred pledge to defend our Constitution, have to be held to
the highest standards in the confirmation process, so they can’t
make a mockery of our God-given rights after they are confirmed.
And of course, National
Right to Life has to continue to be a resource for that one woman or
that one family that needs the information and support we provide
that can mean the difference between the birth of a precious child
or a human life lost to abortion. There is so much good we can
accomplish, with your help!
Please consider supporting
National Right to Life with extra generous support this year when we
contact you for financial help. Please encourage friends and
neighbors to join as well.
At the same time please tell
your friends, your family, those in your church and social groups
that National Right to Life is fighting on behalf of people just
like you to save the unborn child’s mother from making a tragic and
In order to continue to be
the unborn child’s most effective voice NRLC needs your help to grow
stronger. The simple truth is that the needs continue to grow even
as financial challenges increase. In these tough economic times we
know that many of you are facing financial challenges, so we do not
make this request for help lightly.
But we simply can’t cut back
our lifesaving efforts. Too many lives depend on us just as we
depend on you!
National Right to Life has
been through an extraordinary period of education and advocacy. That
disciplined and carefully crafted advocacy has brought us to the
point that poll after poll shows America wants greater legal
protection for unborn children. It is our responsibility—all of
us—to continue to advance that cause until the day Roe v. Wade is
With your help, together we
can accomplish what National Right to Life alone could not.
