The reelection campaign for Governor Kay Ivey today announced that National Right to Life, the oldest and largest federation of state right-to-life affiliates and local chapters in the country, has endorsed Kay Ivey in her reelection bid for Governor.
Governor Ivey thanked National Right to Life for their endorsement and tireless work to defend the unborn.
“National Right to Life dedicates itself each and every day to protecting and defending our nation’s most precious asset – our next generation. I am humbled to accept their endorsement. Our children are a gift from God, and I will never stop defending them. It’s easy to talk about protecting life, but it’s a different thing to act on it, and that’s what our state did when I signed the strongest pro-life bill in the entire nation, which struck at the core of Roe v. Wade itself,” said Ivey. “This bill is particularly important now in light of recent events in the United States Supreme Court. I pray that the Roe v. Wade may be heading to the ash bins of history, I am hopeful that is the case.”
Ivey continued: “In Alabama, we’ve set a national standard for what it truly means to protect unborn children. To no one’s surprise, Hollywood, the mainstream media and the radical left had a come apart when I signed this bill. Who knew protecting innocent, unborn babies could be so controversial? Well, despite their best attempts to intimidate us into backing down, we didn’t flinch. I stand by Alabama’s pro-life values, and as long as I’m the governor of this state, I always will. Our children are a gift from God, and it is our responsibility to make sure that they are protected at all costs.”
In 2019, Governor Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, which made abortion and attempted abortion a felony offense.
In their endorsement letter to Governor Ivey, National Right to Life said:
“Alabama voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of vulnerable members of the human family should vote to re-elect you [Kay Ivey] as governor so that you can continue to advance vital pro-life public policies.”

Dear Governor Ivey:
National Right to Life, the federation of state right-to-life organizations, is pleased to endorse you for re-election as Governor of Alabama.
You are a strong advocate for life. You signed several bills to protect unborn children and their mothers, including the Alabama Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Act, which helped to educate the public about the brutality of abortion and would protect unborn children from dismemberment abortions.
You signed Gianna’s Law, which protects abortion survivors by requiring doctors to administer the same level of medical care to a child born alive after an abortion attempt as they would any other child of the same gestational age.
You oppose using the hard-earned dollars of Alabama taxpayers to fund abortions or to fund the operations of abortion providers.
You called upon the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider the holding of Roe v. Wade that allows abortion on demand for any reason and give greater latitude to state legislatures to enact laws on abortion that reflect the values of the people they represent.
Alabama voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of vulnerable members of the human family should vote to re-elect you as governor so that you can continue to
advance vital pro-life public policies.
