The draft also states that there is "a moral obligation to assist, not to penalize, women struggling with the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy," reports LifeNews.com.

The Republican Majority for Choice, which supports abortion rights within the GOP, called the platform draft's language "extreme" and said the party missed a "huge opportunity" to unify its members.
