RNC Chair Affirms Life; Moves Winter Meeting to Attend March for Life

“Next week is the RNC Winter Meeting, and this time around it’s being held in Washington, D.C. As many Life News readers know, that coincides with the annual March for Life.

As a proud pro-life Republican, I saw this as a great opportunity for us to participate in this meaningful event. So we adjusted the schedule and pushed back our meetings and official business to allow our members who want to participate to join in the march. We even rented a bus so that they can get to the rally. The march is a much more important cause; business can wait. On Wednesday, we’ll travel to the Mall together to join with hundreds of thousands of people from across the country gathering to support life.

We’ll be there to send a message: We are a pro-life party. Life is a gift, and it must be protected. That means advocating for our beliefs, embracing the right to life, and celebrating the blessing of adoption.” *  So begins the opinion piece written by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. 

Earlier this month Chairman Priebus, whose unabashed pro-life stance was celebrated by conservatives when he was first elected the national leader in 2011, had earlier announced he moved the Winter Meeting start time so that those attending the national meeting could attend the 41st annual March for Life on January 22.

Priebus reacted to RNC members who originally planned to charter a bus and attend the Rally and March on their own.  “I saw that there was a real interest among a significant portion of our members to attend and support the Rally for Life,” Priebus said in a Newsmax story.This is a core principle of our party. It was natural for me to support our members and our principles.”*
