Trump Hosts White House Meeting With Abortion Survivor, Pro-lifers

/ National

Valentine’s Day was extra sweet this year because President Trump chose to host a pro-life meeting at the White House.

Attendees included late-term abortion survivor, Melissa Ohden, a now six-year-old boy who was born at just 22 weeks, Micah Pickering, and a little girl who was born with opioid-dependency, Katharine Alexander.  Additionally, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, Susan B. Anthony president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, pro-life down syndrome activist, Katie Shaw, and countless other Pro-Life activists were also in attendance.

President Trump spoke to those attendees along with thousands of others on a national conference call. He urged them to keep fighting to protect the preborn. He also condemned the radical abortion legislation in certain states such as New York and Virginia.  

Melissa Ohden shared on Facebook, “President Trump voiced his ongoing commitment to life, condemned the legislation being passed across the nation that’s aggressively anti-life, and he also denounced Virginia Governor Northam’s comments on infanticide. I can tell you that in our private time with him, he was warm, so very funny, genuine, and yes, fired up about a few things, including the protection of life. It was a historical moment, to have the survivor of a failed abortion in the West Wing, and although I wish other survivors could have been there with me, I can honestly tell you I thought of them throughout my time there, and I have the utmost hope that this is just the first step in having survivors acknowledged, included, and supported by the Trump administration and maybe even our greater culture.”

Melissa Ohden and Marjorie Dannenfelser spoke with EWTN Pro-Life Weekly’s Catherine Hadro minutes after the meeting with President Donald Trump. They give a breakdown of how the meeting went and their thoughts regarding the future of the prolife movement. Watch the video below:
