The Republican Majority for Choice (RMC) is a Republican organization in the United States dedicated to preserving legal access to abortion. The group also supports federal funding for all kinds of stem cell research, including embryonic stem cell research.[1]

RMC has a political action committee and supports pro-choice Republicans across the country.

History[edit]

The Republican Majority for Choice was renamed from the Republican Pro-Choice Coalition in 2004 after an American Viewpoint Poll commissioned by Republicans for Choice[2] found that 73% of Republicans believe that the decision to have an abortion should not be made by a woman and her doctor and by the government.[citation needed]

The Republican Majority for Choice is allied with other Moderate to Liberal Republican Groups such as The Republican Main Street Partnership, Christine Todd Whitman's It's My Party Too, Ann Stone's Republicans for Choice, the Log Cabin Republicans, The Wish List, Republicans for Environmental Protection, and the Kansas Traditional Republican Majority.
