Politicians who consider themselves pro-life “except for rape and incest” hold a position inconsistent with the goal of the pro-life movement and the Republican National Platform which states in part: “The unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.” Acknowledging that a mother has a right, for any reason, to kill her unborn baby, simply means that abortion will remain legal in America.

Some of the candidates who hold exceptions will win election to Congress on November 3. Thereafter, it is the responsibility of their pro-life constituents to meet with them frequently and assist them in understanding the innate value of every innocent human life, from the moment of conception. We hope you will all take that responsibility seriously and in doing so, help establish a truly pro-life Congress.
