National Right To Life has been roundly condemned by a growing number of Pro Life activists for both compromising the message, and diverting the contributions for peripheral and unrelated political operations. Randall Terry of Operation Rescue has been a harsh critique of National Right To Life for years.
In Oklahoma, The vice president of National Right to Life, Tony Lauinger, actively lobbied to kill the most sweeping prolife legislation in the nation. It codifies selective abortion as "murder" and strips a doctor of his state medical license if he performs a selective abortion.
Alaska Right To Life was reportedly threatened with losing their national franchise unless they endorsed a particular pro-abortion candidate from Alaska whom the Senate Republican Re-election campaign chose to support.
Conservative Review's scathing expose' of National Right To Life
"Despite National Right to Life’s silence on the issue, there are a growing chorus of conservative aides who say the group has become nothing more than an arm of the Republican establishment, just carrying out orders from McConnell.
"When it comes to strategy and actually scoring votes they're terrible," one senior aide on Capitol Hill told Conservative Review. "They've gotten very cozy with leadership. They consider themselves to be legislative experts so when people in Congress put forward good [anti] abortion amendments they (National Right to Life) won't support it. They actually actively work against it."
National Right to Life's cozying up to leadership isn't just a recent trend, but something the group has been doing for quite some time.
"When you're too close to Capitol Hill it becomes a lifestyle of easy give and take, instead of remembering the old adage that politics is war by other means," a senior House staffer said of National Right to Life. "You're actually dealing with life and death issues and some of them are important enough to stand up for.
Actually speaking to all of the lives that will be lost. All of the baby parts that will be sold. All of the born-alive infants who will be dismembered and sold to the highest bidder. All of that's going to take place with taxpayer dollars, because shutting down the government's controversial. If the Republican party can't stand up to start this barbaric practice than they're no different than the Democrats."
A former Republican aide on Capitol Hill said National Right to Life would actively get involved just to benefit the establishment's agenda.

Let me share an excellent article about how some prolifers are being persecuted and shunned by the DC prolife industry....
The Pro-Life Debate - Defending Innocent Children, or Politicians?
Contact: Rebecca Kiessling, Save The 1, 248-495-2925
ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., May 12, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Rebecca Kiessling:
Are some candidates "more pro-life" than others? Yes! Is it important to know which candidates and which organizations are willing to compromise their pro-life values? Yes, because we're talking about lethal prejudice.
This is not a political game for me. I literally owe my birth to the law being there to protect me. My heroes are pro-life legislators in Michigan who recognized that mine was a life worth saving, even in the case of rape – 100% pro-life, with no exceptions and no compromise. My birthmother did not choose life for me. She chose abortion. I was nearly aborted at two illegal abortionists -- my life-changing near-death experience. She only backed out because of the "back alley" conditions and because it was illegal. If your mother chose life for you – how nice for you, but mine didn't. Some of us are in need of heroes – those who are willing to protect us without exception, without compromise.
I'm from Michigan where we've never had a rape exception in a single law. It's not because Michigan is a red state. We're a purple state in fact. It's because Right to Life of Michigan (RLM) is a no exceptions, no compromise organization and they made the determination in the early 70's that they would never forsake the child conceived in rape. This means a candidate does not get their PAC endorsement if he or she makes a rape exception, and they don't endorse rape exception legislation. As a result, we've passed some of the best laws in the nation – and they're clean laws, with no exceptions. We even overrode the Governor's veto a couple of years ago with a state-wide petition drive and a majority vote of the House and Senate. This is because of the stellar pro-life leadership of RLM.
For many years, RLM was the only affiliate of National Right to Life Conference (NRLC) who refused to compromise on the rape exception. In the early 1970's, there was a schism within the pro-life movement over whether to forsake the child conceived in rape. Nellie Gray, founder of the March for Life (MFL), used to go on and on about it. She had their statement of principles read each year at the March, which outlined the MFL no compromise stance when she was in leadership. Judie Brown, President of American Life League can tell you all about this schism as well. Sadly, the majority voice on the national level has been that of compromise. The movement and innocent children conceived in rape have suffered as a result, because they've celebrated mediocrity instead of achieving success by electing the best possible pro-life legislators.

"Our society finds Truth too strong a medicine to digest undiluted. In its purest form Truth is not a polite tap on the shoulder; it is a hallowing reproach.
What Moses brought down from Mt. Sinai were not the Ten Suggestions, they are Commandments. Are, not were.
The sheer brilliance of the Ten Commandments is that they codify, in a handful of words, acceptable human behavior. Not just for then or now but for all time. Language evolves, power shifts from nation to nation, messages are transmitted with the speed of light, man erases one frontier after another; and yet we and our behavior, and the Commandments which govern that behavior, remain the same. The tension between those Commandments and our baser instincts provide the grist for journalism's daily mill. What a huge, gaping void there would be in our informational flow and in our entertainment without routine violation of the Sixth Commandment. Thou shalt not murder."
