Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) will be launching a new pro-life organization; the new group is called the National Personhood Alliance (NPA) and will begin work this fall. A press release said the NPA will be “a confederation of faith-based, pro-life organizations and leaders who believe pursuing Personhood is essential to protecting all innocent human beings in the 21st century.”
GRTL President Daniel Becker said other pro-life groups, while numerous, have fallen short reports Christian Today.
“The focus of NPA will differ from most national pro-life groups,” Becker said. "The general consensus of many in the movement is that it's time for a fresh strategy for ending the disregard for innocent human life. We intend to be 'standard-bearers' as opposed to 'king-makers'.”
"This will require the application, politically and legislatively, of a higher standard than is currently embraced by most national pro-life groups today. There has been an overwhelming call from many within the movement to form a new national pro-life group which will represent us on Capitol Hill."
In addition to advocating against abortion, the NPA intends to emphasize “the dignity and value of each human being at any developmental stage through natural death,” Becker said.
