The Republican Party on Monday approved a new platform that contains the same Human Life Amendment the GOP has advocated for years enshrining legal protection for unborn children in the nation’s Constitution. The platform also lauds the work of crisis pregnancy centers and their efforts to provide pregnant women
with tangible help and resources.
Early Monday afternoon, LifeNews.com had exclusive access as the Republican Party’s platform committee approved the final draft of the platform with little fanfare and no opposition.
After the platform committee meeting, the thousands of delegates gathered in Minnesota for the national convention signed off on the platform to a standing ovation of applause.
The platform draws on the nation's founding documents as expressing the earliest support for human life but backs a Constitutional amendment to make those protections clear."Faithful to the first guarantee of the Declaration of Independence, we assert the inherent dignity and sanctity of all human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed," the final GOP platform draft says.
