FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President Thomas Glessner released the following statement regarding last night’s events at the Republican National Convention:
“This week has been a breath of fresh air for all who value the sanctity of life. Unlike the Democrat’s anti-life platform, the Republican Party has chosen to maintain the most pro-life platform in generations for another four years. Last night, the Republican Party and the nation heard from pro-life advocate Abby Johnson. As I wrote in a Fox News op-ed entitled, ‘Dare to see “Unplanned” – it could change your life,’ the film that chronicled her gripping testimony played a vital role in America’s cultural shift toward life. I hope the millions that watched Johnson speak will take to heart the need to protect our most vulnerable from the horrors of an unscrupulous abortion industry.
Abby Johnson pointed out that the 2020 election entails ‘a choice between two radical, anti-life activists, and the most pro-life president we’ve ever had.’ Over the last four years, President Trump and the Republican Senate nominated and confirmed more than 200 federal judges that pledged to uphold our constitution as written. We commend this administration for its pro-life stance and tireless work on behalf of children of all ages. Furthermore, we urge the president to continue appointing judges that value all life – born and unborn, regardless of infirmities, handicaps, age, gender or race. Only then will there be justice and liberty for all in our great nation.”
