Pro-life supporters come from varied backgrounds

Being “pro-life” doesn’t necessarily mean that you are white, male, Republican, conservative or Christian (or religious, at all). Go to to see a list of individual and organizations who believe that all human life is worthy of respect from conception to natural death.

You will find Democrats, atheists, disability rights groups, LGBTQ groups, etc. Consistent Life’s mission statement includes opposition to the death penalty, racism, etc., Many followers are also concerned with the environment and animal rights.

Form the media, one would assume there are two camps when it comes to abortion, when, in fact, there are many who believe in a “consistent ethic of respect for life.”
