The 46th Annual March for Life yesterday was one to go down in history. Among speakers at the event such as Abby Johnson, Ben Shapiro, and Vice President Mike Pence, President Donald Trump made a surprise video appearance.
When Vice President Mike Pence addressed the audience, he touched on all of the pro-life achievements the Trump administration has made since taking office.
Some of these achievements include reinstating the Mexico City policy his first week in office to reduce abortion funding for foreign governments, and appointing numerous conservative, pro-life justices and government officials. Vice President Pence even went on to say with all of these accomplishments, President Donald Trump is the most pro-life president in American history.
This may seem like a pretty big claim but as listeners tuned in to President Trump’s pre-recorded speech on the big screen, this claim was affirmed.
Trump’s video speech was straight to the point; while he reiterated much of what the Vice President said about the Mexico City policy, he also discussed how his administration has taken action to protect the rights and religious freedoms of many medical professionals and charities like the Little Sisters of the Poor. Most importantly he assured America a new proposal has been issued to prohibit taxpayer funding from going to any clinic which perform abortions. He also stated, his administration, supports the “loving choice of adoption and foster care including through the support of faith-based adoption services.”
Furthermore, he declared during his presidency he will “always defend the first right in the Declaration of Independence, the right to life.”
“Today I have signed a letter to Congress to make clear that if they send any legislation to my desk that weakens the protection of human life, that I will issue a veto and we have the support to uphold those vetoes. Every child is a sacred gift from God,” President Trump said making it ever clear he does not plan to back down regarding the protection of life.
President Trump has brought great hope to the pro-life movement. As the President of the United States, he is willing to put himself on the line to defund and potentially end abortion once and for all.
Many pro-life activists have been quick to question the president and his intentions but his claim today has laid many reservations to rest and proved to the country his administration really is the most pro-life administration in history.
With this big support and power behind the pro-life movement, this generation really might be the generation that puts an end to abortion.
Thank you, Mr. President, for supporting life.
