Republican Party Platform Calls for Defunding Planned Parenthood For the First Time

The proposed Republican Party platform contains some of the most strongly-worded pro-life language condemning abortion and defending the right to life of unborn children. That language includes a call for defunding Planned Parenthood — something pro-life advocates are hailing.

The Republican Party Platform Committee adopted draft language on Tuesday that supports defunding Planned Parenthood and extending the Constitutional “right to life” to unborn children. It reads:

The Constitution’s guarantee that no one can be deprived of life, liberty, or property deliberately echoes the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that “all” are “endowed by their Creator” with the right to life.

We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.
