Anti-Life Position Organizations
Missouri Right to Life Policy on Organizations That Take Anti-Life Positions
Missouri Right to Life does not support any organization that in its statements or in practice manifests anti-life positions on abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, or cloning. Missouri Right to Life urges citizens to consider carefully whether to support such organizations.
Anti-life positions are manifested by organizations that are not directly involved in anti-life
activities. Examples include, but are by no means limited to, such organizations as the American Bar
Association (ABA Policy on Legislative and National Issues: Abortion [adopted August, 1992],
available at http://www.abanet.org/policy/Ch-13greenbook2009-10.pdf), the Sierra Club (“[T]he Sierra Club is a pro-choice organization that has worked for population stabilization since 1965,” Sierra Club policy on Population, p. 3 [undated], available at http://www.sierraclub.org/policy/conservation/population.pdf#pop), and Juvenile Diabetes Association (embryonic stem cell research and cloning: Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, “Stem Cell Facts” [undated], available at http://advocacy.jdrf.org/files/General_Files/Advocacy/2009/0509_SC_1_therapies.pdf). All who value life should consider carefully whether they should support such organizations. Sources of information
on such groups are readily available on the Internet.
