WASHINGTON, D.C. – Every year, on or around the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in all 50 states, pro-life supporters descend on the nation’s capital to make make their voices heard. The ‘March For Life’ event will undoubtedly feature more people than the laughable (Leftist) Women’s March, but is sure to receive only a pittance of the positive coverage from the Mainstream Media.
Donald Trump could make a difference here, as he becomes the first sitting U.S. president to directly address the pro-life crowd, reinforcing just why evangelical Republicans supported him despite the long list of reasons they might otherwise find him objectionable.
“We see that all the time. In fact, only 12 percent of Americans support abortion on demand at any time. Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the right to life.”
“As you all know, Roe vs. Wade has resulted in some of the most permissive abortion laws anywhere in the world,” Trump told the crowd.
“For example, in the United States, it’s one of only seven countries to allow elective late-term abortions, along with China, North Korea, and others,” the president said. “Right now in a number of states, the laws allow a baby to be torn from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month. It is wrong. It has to change.”
Though Trump has been guilty of lewd ‘locker room talk,’ extramarital affairs, and other actions that might make family values voters cringe, in the end it is his willingness to cut against the politically correct grain that endeared values voters to him. Unlike most other politicians that make promises on the campaign trail only to soften or reverse their positions once in office, President Trump has proven unique in his adherence to those campaign talking points.
The positive effect of this cannot be understated. Like Trump said, abortion, especially late-term abortions, are wrong morally, and lack support of the public. Fighting for life in spite of the rabid Leftists that will frame Trump as anti-women is a laudable attribute that will pay dividends when it comes to support for anti-abortion legislation and future elections as well.
“Friday’s event also coincides with the House passing the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which aims to protect the child in the aftermath of an attempted abortion and requires the abortion provider to take lifesaving measures, such as sending the child to a hospital.
This month, the Senate is expected to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which prohibits abortion after five months.
“I strongly supported the House of Representatives Pain-Capable bill, which would end painful, late-term abortions nationwide,” Trump said. “I call upon the Senate to pass this important law and send it to my desk for signing.””
Despite the Left’s Outrage Machine, Trump’s personal history, and the occasional Twitter gaffes, he may indeed go down as the ‘most pro-life president you have ever seen.’
