The NEA has strongly supported abortion for many years. Each year, a stalwart group of pro-life advocates challenges the NEA powers-that-be. The pro-lifers only ask that the NEA be “abortion neutral.” They presented a motion stating that the NEA stop using dues monies to support abortion. This motion was defeated in a secret ballot vote, with 33% voting pro-life and 66% voting pro-abortion. That vote indicates that a third of the delegates want the NEA to stop using dues money for abortion, but the NEA leadership is determined to side with the feminists and pro-aborts and continue to spend dues money to advocate abortion.
