NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE ON PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S U.S. SUPREME COURT NOMINEE:
JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT
WASHINGTON — President Trump today announced that he will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to fill the seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
National Right to Life President Carol Tobias was a guest of the White House during today’s announcement.
“We commend President Trump for his nomination of an impressively well-qualified judge to the Supreme Court,” said Tobias. “Judge Barrett has demonstrated a commitment to defending the text and history of the Constitution and the principles of judicial restraint.”
President Trump’s nominee stands in stark contrast with the judicial-legislative activists who would be nominated by Joe Biden. Joe Biden has promised to impose a litmus test of his nominees.
NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE PRAISES PRESIDENT TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDER PROTECTING THE RIGHT TO LIFE OF NEWBORNS REGARDLESS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THEIR BIRTH
WASHINGTON — President Trump today took executive action to protect newborn babies, babies born with disabilities, and babies born alive following an abortion.
“President Trump’s executive order protects the youngest of patients and ensures that their right to life is defended to the greatest extent of the law,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.
In the President’s remarks at today’s National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, President Trump announced “The Born Alive Executive Order” that would ensure the right to life to all newborns regardless of the circumstances of their birth.
President Trump said,
We believe in … the eternal truth that every child, born and unborn, is made in the Holy image of God ... I will always defend the sacred right to life. Today, I am announcing that I will be signing the Born Alive Executive Order to ensure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty.
The executive order enforces and expands protections for babies who are born prematurely, born following an abortion, or born with disabilities.
PRESIDENT TRUMP ISSUES LETTER TO PRO-LIFE AMERICANS
Promises Four More Years of Right to Life Leadership When Re-Elected
WASHINGTON — On Thursday, September 3, President Trump released a letter to pro-life Americans promising that “With your help, I will win re-election, ensuring we have another four years to fight in the trenches for unborn children and their mothers.”
“President Trump has been unflinching in his leadership on the right to life,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “In contrast, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would support abortion on demand at any time, any where, for any reason and paid for with taxpayer funds.”
President Trump noted the contrast between his “bold pro-life leadership with Joe Biden’s abortion extremism.”
The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide — leaving babies to die after failed abortions. Joe Biden’s embrace of this extreme position is most evidenced by his support for taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is an abhorrent position that must be defeated at the ballot box. Joe Biden has doubled down on these positions with his selection of abortion extremist Kamala Harris as his running mate.
“The proposed policies of Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris would roll back the clock on pro-life protections for women and their unborn children,” said Tobias. “President Trump will ensure that we continue moving forward during the next four years when he is re-elected.”

The Democratic Party's Version Of "America's Promise" Promises Unborn Children No Future
WASHINGTON — As the last day of the Democratic National Convention opens, the Democratic Party’s nominee for President, Joe Biden, will take the stage and accept the party’s nomination. But contrary to tonight’s convention theme of “America’s Promise,” a Biden/Harris ticket will fail in making America’s Promise possible for the most vulnerable among us: the unborn child.
“A Biden/Harris ticket will be the most pro-abortion ticket in history,” said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. “Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support radical abortion policies. A Biden/Harris administration would roll back protective legislation such as the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for abortion on demand.”
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support the Democratic platform of unlimited abortion even through birth.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have both been endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice America. In their release endorsing Joe Biden, NARAL pointed out that a Biden/Harris presidency would “expand access” to abortion.
In addition, NARAL also noted the real promises that a Biden/Harris administration would fulfill by promising to “only appoint judges” that would uphold Roe v. Wade and support the repeal of the Hyde Amendment. They also praised the Biden/Harris ticket for promising to reverse the Mexico City Policy which prevents federal tax dollars from being used by organizations that perform or promote abortions overseas.
