Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation
HARRISBURG, Pa. –The political arm of National Right to Life, the nation’s leading pro-life organization, has announced its support of Republican nominee Donald Trump for President.
The announcement clearly indicates that Mr. Trump is the Presidential candidate who will safeguard the rights of the country’s most vulnerable citizens.
Earlier this summer, the political action committee of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, an affiliate of National Right to Life, endorsed Mr. Trump for the White House.
“Donald Trump has pledged to appoint U.S. Supreme Court Justices who will strictly interpret the Constitution, rather than making laws from the bench,” said Maria Gallagher, legislative/PAC Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.
“In sharp contrast, Democrat Hillary Clinton has imposed a pro-abortion litmus test for Supreme Court nominees. Her radical stand is at odds with the vast majority of Americans, who oppose legal abortion in most circumstances, according to numerous public opinion polls,” Gallagher added.
Mr. Trump also supports a ban on taxpayer funding of abortion—a position supported by more than 60 percent of the electorate. Tragically, Mrs. Clinton has vowed to repeal the common sense Hyde Amendment, which bars taxpayer funding of abortion except in the rare cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.
While Mr. Trump supports a ban on grisly late-term abortions, Mrs. Clinton voted against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act while serving as a U.S. Senator. The law, which bans a gruesome act in which a baby is partly delivered, then killed, was ultimately upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Mr. Trump is committed to protecting the lives of preborn babies and the well-being of their mothers. Mrs. Clinton would set our nation back 40 years by pursuing extremist policies that threaten the lives of innocent unborn children and the health and safety of American women,” Gallagher said.
More than 58 million preborn babies have died in the U.S. since the tragic 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion throughout the country. It is estimated that approximately one million children each year are lost to abortion in the U.S.
The National Right to Life Political Action Committee (NRL PAC) is by far the most effective single-issue pro-life political action committee in the country. Realizing that the only way to win the battle and restore legal protection to innocent human lives was to elect pro-life men and women to office, National Right to Life created the National Right to Life Political Action Committee in 1979. NRL PAC has been involved in every federal election since Ronald Reagan’s victory over Jimmy Carter in 1980, and has a proven record of success. For more information, please use this link.
The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation is a grassroots right-to-life organization with members statewide. PPLF is committed to promoting the dignity and value of human life from conception to natural death and to restoring legal protection for preborn children.
