Pro-life President Donald Trump

This morning the pro-life Trump Administration put out a summary of what it called, “President Donald J. Trump’s 500 Days of American Greatness.” As a single-issue pro-life organization, we focus only on the accomplishments that relate to our concerns on behalf of the unborn, babies born with disabilities, and the medically vulnerable elderly.

And they are considerable!

Here is what included in the summary. In fact it only touches on the many initiatives Donald Trump and his administration have undertaken on our behalf.

  • President Trump has confirmed the most circuit court judges of any President in their first year, and secured Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.
  • President Trump successfully eliminated the penalty for Obamacare’s burdensome individual mandate.
  • The President’s Administration is seeking to provide more affordable health coverage and broader access to affordable alternatives to Obamacare plans.
  • President Trump has ensured that the religious liberties and conscience of Americans are protected and respected by the Federal government.
  • President Trump signed an Executive Order to protect the free speech and religious liberties of groups such as the Little Sisters of the Poor.
  • The Department of Justice issued guidance to all executive agencies on protecting religious liberty in federal programs.

We could easily go on and on. The President reestablished and then expanded the pro-life Mexico City policy so that it protects $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to fund the global abortion industry.

And he cut off taxpayer funding for the U.N. Population Fund, which colludes with China’s cruel program of forced abortion and sterilization.

Moreover Mr. Pence addressed the March for Life in 2017, becoming the first sitting Vice President to do so in person, and this last January President Trump was the first sitting President to address the March for Life live via satellite.

And to name just one more, President Trump has expressed strong support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when science tells us that an unborn child can experience pain.

Thank you, President Trump.
