In one of the largest voter registration campaigns of its kind, two leading prolife organizations are working to try to register as many as five million new pro-life voters and to get them to the polls this November.

With some pro-life groups saying the upcoming presidential election could decide the fate of legalized abortion, registering pro-lifer voters to take part in the upcoming election is crucial.

“The upcoming general election is less than 100 days away, and the Gallup polling firm (whose numbers at this point have predicted the winner in every race since 1964 except one) has Barack Obama and Mitt Romney at a tie,” says the National Right to Life Committee, one of the two groups.

“Every vote matters, and National Right to Life is excited to be participating in one of the largest voter registration projects in American history,” NRLC adds. “National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund has partnered with Focus on the Family in a project called Commit 2 Vote 2012.  This project sends mailings directly to our supporters who are not yet registered to vote but whose participation in this year’s election is crucial.”

“The mailing contains two voter registration forms.  Each is pre-addressed with the proper local election office for easy return mailing.  The project will also include a phone call to recipients of this mailing to see if they have any questions and guide them through the process,” NRLC said.



Darla St. Martin, NRLC’s associate executive director, who is coordinating the project for the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund, praised the outstanding work of Mr. Tom Minnery, Senior Vice President of Focus on the Family, on this unprecedented partnership to conduct one of the largest combined and nonpartisan voter-registration campaigns ever which will reach 5 million unregistered pro-life, pro-family households with 10 million registration forms.

NRLC concluded:  “The process could not be simpler, but the cause could literally not be greater.  The most vulnerable members of our society, the voiceless unborn children of this country, are relying on the action of millions of pro-life people.  We must be committed to exercise our right to vote to ensure their right to live.”
