CWN Editor's Note: The Republican Party’s platform committee has voted to drop an explicit reference to the right to life from the party’s 2024 platform.

Whereas the previous GOP platform had affirmed a “fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed,” the new platform says only that the 14th Amendment guarantees that “no person can be denied life or liberty without due process.” The platform also gives Republican support to contraception and in vitro fertilization.

The Trump campaign welcomed the changes, saying that the platform now reflects Donald Trump’s vision “in a way that is concise and digestible for every voter.”
