One of the primary planks of the Republican Platform is the party's commitment to recognizing the Fourteenth Amendment protection of unborn children.

America’s Party nominates Tom Hoefling and J.D. Ellis, ratifies Equal Protection for Posterity platform
America's Party National Committee
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 19, 2012
Des Moines, IA – Tom Hoefling of Iowa and J.D. Ellis of Tennessee were nominated last night as the 2012 Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates for America’s Party.
The America’s Party national convention also ratified its 2012 platform, adding additional private property rights language, and replacing its old pro-life language with the full text of the “Equal Protection for Posterity Resolution.”
America’s Party is being built by Reagan pro-life, pro-family, “peace through strength” conservatives who believe that the Republican Party has abandoned the principles of Ronald Reagan -- particularly the Reagan pro-life platform plank which recognizes the personhood of the unborn and their protection by the Fourteenth Amendment.
In a statement released this morning at their new campaign website, tomhoefling.com, Hoefling and Ellis made the following comments:
“As the 2012 America's Party nominees for President and Vice-President, we are currently seeking one million patriotic, principled, committed Americans -- men and women who understand the critical need for an immediate return to the principles of our nation's founding.
Together, let us strive to restore America’s moral, economic, and physical strength, in order to fulfill the ultimate stated purpose of our Constitution: ‘to secure the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity.’
We have an obligation to our children and grandchildren to take back our political system from the money and media interests, and to put the power back in the hands of We the People.
Please sign up now at tomhoefling.com for regular email updates and additional information on what you can do from your own front porch to help put America back on its proper foundations, and return us to principled, constitutional government of the people, by the people, for the people.”
"I hereby commit to protect Life by all legal means necessary, and should I be blessed to hold elected office, do hereby reaffirm the oath of the same. If We the People, the ones who believe this world was created by God and that our great nation has been blessed by Him, would each step out in boldness and refuse to ignore the uncomfortable moral battles that are deteriorating families and society as a whole, God most certainly would restore our nation to strength and prosperity for His glory."
-- Kevin Nelson, Massachusetts
"The success of America has been a direct result of our foundation on and adherence to the laws and principles of our Creator. It is our duty to ensure there are consequences for breaking the oath to defend and maintain the rights of the People, the foremost of which is the right to life for all, from the first moment of their existence. Politicians and public employees who reject this resolution reveal themselves unfit for office."
-- Christine Szczap, Illinois
