Bringing Morality Back to the White House: How Trump is Bolstering the Pro-Life Movement

Trump pro-life White HouseIs Donald Trump the most pro-life leader our nation has had? This is the question many Americans on both sides of the aisle are asking, as the 45th president has proven to be a fierce defender of the unborn. Trump has shown a consistent concern for the rights of America’s unborn children, making it loud and clear that he intends to fight abortion during his time in the White House. And for President Trump, this isn’t just empty rhetoric—it’s become concrete policy.

One of Trump’s first presidential acts after taking office was to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, a piece of legislation that blocks federal funding for non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) that provide abortion services and abortion referrals. Originally introduced by President Reagan in 1984, the policy has been renamed by the Trump administration, now known as “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance”. Under the current scope of the policy, foreign NGO’s are required to confirm that they will not “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning”. By effectively ending abortion funding abroad, Trump as shown that his pro-life stance extends beyond the United States alone.

President Trump’s cabinet is also comprised of pro-life figures. Vice President Pence, in particular, spent much of the 2016 campaign proudly espousing his pro-life views. A vocal opponent of Roe v. Wade, Pence has spoken on how the ruling is cruel and based on falsifications, and how abortion is antithetical to his Christian faith. At the 2017 March for Life, Pence delivered a moving speech on abortion in America, telling the crowd, “Life is winning in America”. He added, “I have long believed that a society can be judged by how we care for our most vulnerable – the aged, the infirm, the disabled, and the unborn. […] We will continue to win the hearts and minds of the rising generation if our hearts first break for young mothers and their unborn children.”

In addition to appointing a cabinet of pro-life advocates, President Trump has worked tirelessly to advance anti-abortion legislation. In April, the president signed a bill that allows states to deny federal money to organizations that provide abortion services, such as Planned Parenthood. Likewise, Trump’s proposed fiscal budget for 2018 is the first to explicitly mention Planned Parenthood and actively prevent the organization from participating in any program funded by Congress’ Labor HHS bill—a huge advancement in blocking abortion services in the United States.

In October, the House passed Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was strongly backed by the Trump administration. The bill bans abortions after 20 weeks, except in the case of the mother’s life being in danger or the pregnancy being a result of rape or incest. A violator of the new legislation is subject to criminal penalties—a fine, up to five years in prison, or both.

Donald Trump has indicated before that his stance on abortion is tied to his faith. As he famously stated in his speech at the 2017 Values Voter Summit, “We don’t worship government, we worship God”. The president’s proclamation of faith reflects his moral values and his reason for believing all life is sacred. Not to mention, President Trump’s brand of moral leadership is something the United States desperately needs after eight years of Barack Obama’s war on Christianity and traditional values.

It’s clear at this point that our president doesn’t just talk, he takes action. Trump has delivered on his pro-life promises and in the process, has ushered in a new era of ethics and values in America. By consistently defending the rights of the unborn, Donald Trump is not only making America great again—he is making morality “in” again.

It’s amazing what Trump is doing to save the lives of babies! God saves a baby from the death sentence of an abortion every time Trump swings a golf club. Jesus smiles upon Trump!

I am sooo very proud of Pres Trump and what he has accomplished in his first year of office, in spite of Democrats blocking all of his attempts to fulfill his campaign promises. I am proud now, to be an American, with Donald Trump as President.

What are your thoughts on Trumps retweeting today of the leadership of a known racist and fascist group–Britain First? He retweeted the leader of this group who faces charges in December for hateful speech. Is that pro-life? If you claim Jesus, please provide biblical back-up.

Also, the GOP has the majority in the House and Senate. Use common sense, Deborah: The Democrats can’t block his attempts.

Jerry, the GOP may have the majority but one half to 60% of Republicans are Rino’s. The Rino’s are nothing more than Progressively Communist Democrats in disguise. They complained openly about “repealing” Obamacare to the voters and haven’t done anything to kill it. Are they just liars, I don’t think so because they talk about “fixing” Obamacare and not REPEALING IT. Which shows you who they really are! … They’re not working with President Trump, but against him! … They disgust me!

please practice what you preach, Jerry. Common sense would be to realize that no group of people, including parties in Congress will agree 100% on most issues. So, there will always be dissenters, Repub. Party included. Therefore, the Democrats – with their almost 100% ‘blocking-voting’ (matter of record since Trump took office) can and do block Trump’s attempts.

Nice non sequitur, Jerry. When it comes to political issues we see you like to throw the baby out with the bath water.

No, he is “pro-birth” and doesn’t care about children after they are born. If he did, he would speak out about the GOP’s negligence in funding CHIP (which has historically had bipartisan support). He also wouldn’t support a tax bill that takes away health insurance form the most vulnerable. Trump hides behind the “pro-life” label because he knows a large number of Americans will vote on a single issue (abortion) and ignore the other ways he is harming society. The greatest trick the devil has played in modern American is convincing evangelicals that the GOP is pro-life and now we have a church that is entirely unlike Jesus.

Sorry Anne, You are the trickster. You spinning half truths. The greatest trick the devel is playing in modern America is using excuses just like you use and playing word games just like you are and playing a sympathy card.
Somehow you think Trump, and I’m going to assume the rest of us “Pro-Lifers” don’t care about the children after they’re born simply because they don’t agree with you? President Trump was proposing a hefty cut of 20% cut in CHIP because Obama Care was supposed to make CHIP unnessary, and it fact it did. It’s the responsibility of the parent to buy healthcare from the exchange that’s prorated on their income. CHIP wouldn’t be necessary if the parent did that.
CHIP is a redundant form of Medicare. You might be surprised to know, but I doubt it, that it was the Democrats that proposed the Affordable Health Care law would eliminate the need for CHIP. So, based on your logic, I guess the Democrats ” don’t care about children after they’re born”, right? We don’t even need to discuss the Democrats position on abortion, even partial birth abortion. They love abortion. Why, they use Planned Parenthood as another means to launder money right back into their party. The Democrats set up healthcare for everyone. All you have to do is log into the exchange, provide your income and presto you too can have “affordable” healthcare. You are the trickster.

Any organization that contributes to any political party, or to a fund that is directed to any political party, should be excluded from receiving Federal grant money and/or Federal Funds. That money is derived from tax dollars paid by members of ALL parties.

Hank, no organization should receive federal grant money. The government was not established to pick favorites. But that said, you are right about quid pro quo deals that are nothing but vote buying with our money.
