GEORGIA RIGHT TO LIFE COMMITTEE, INC. (GRTL) is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian organization whose fundamental purpose is to engage in actions that will restore respect and effective legal protection for all human beings from the moment of fertilization until natural death.
Incorporated in 1971, we are the state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee in Washington, D.C. We serve as Georgia’s major pro-life organization, with local chapters across the state and over 225,000 identified pro-life households.
We are organized for legal and peaceful activities in the areas of education, legislation, and political action. Board members, employees, chapter officers, and chairpersons are prohibited from participating in illegal and/or violent activities.
GRTL is strictly non-violent. We oppose violence against babies and against the abortionists who kill them. We do not engage in civil disobedience. All activities fall within the legal bounds of the First Amendment. Just as Dr. King sought to create a “creative tension” to awaken the nation to the horrible injustice of segregation, we too are creating a “creative tension” to awaken the nation to the horrible injustice of abortion.
