In a letter to pro-life leaders submitted this week, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump outlined his vision for an America where the lives of innocent babies will hold a lot more importance than they currently do.
Embedded within the letter were four key commitments, according to Breitbart:
- “Nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
- “Signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful
late-term abortions nationwide.”
- “Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and reallocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.”
- “Making the Hyde Amendment permanent law to protect taxpayers from having to pay for abortion.”
Boom, boom, boom and BOOM!
Trump reportedly wrote the letter in conjunction with the formation of his new Pro-Life Coalition, which Breitbart reported will be led by the longtime president of the Susan B. Anthony List foundation, Miss Marjorie Dannenfelser:
The SBA List is widely acknowledged to have the best “ground campaign” of any pro-life group in the country. Since it was founded in 1993 under Dannenfelser’s direction, it has helped to elect more than 100 pro-life candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives and 20 to the U.S. Senate. This compares favorably to its opposite number, the pro-abortion Emily’s List, which was founded in 1985 and which claims that it has helped to elect 19 senators and 110 representatives.
Hear that, you “Never Trumpers” who complained about Trump’s lack of ground game?
Speaking with Breitbart in defense of why she chose to support Trump, especially since she initially opposed his candidacy, Dannenfelser explained that both religious liberty and the right to life hinged on what happens this November.
“The thing that few seem to be talking about and [that] must be stated emphatically is that we will live in a very different America under a Hillary Clinton Supreme Court,” she said. “The right to life and religious liberty rooted in the constitution will be routed for decades. If not permanently.”
Will we ever be able to put a definitive end to on-demand abortion? Not likely. But we might be able to at the very least put the brakes on it, assuming we select the right person to lead us. Speaking of which, to read Trump’s letter, click here.
