On this Presidents’ Day we celebrate you, Mr. President!

Pro-life President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.

Ever.

In recognition of President Trump’s many pro-life achievements, on July 4, 2019, on the eve of its 49th annual convention, the National Right to Life Committee, the federation of state right-to-life affiliates and local chapters, endorsed pro-life President Donald Trump for his re-election.

On that day, Carol Tobias, National Right to Life president, said

“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”

One of the President’s first acts in office was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which prevents tax funds from being given to organizations that perform abortions or lobby to change abortion laws of host countries. Later, the president expanded this policy to prevent $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to fund the global abortion industry.

The Trump Administration also cut off funding to the United Nations Population Fund because of that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.

On this day we celebrate fewer tax dollars going toward pro-abortion policies because of President Trump’s policies.

President Trump pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”

President Trump is committed to signing pro-life legislation, including

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
  • The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
  • The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

On this day we celebrate the lives that will be saved due to President Trump’s pro-life policies.

The importance of the 2020 elections cannot be overstated. It will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.

The election will determine whether the U.S. Senate will continue to be led by pro-life Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), so the Senate can confirm more federal judges.

On this day we celebrate the 192 federal judges, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, nominated by President Trump and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

And this election will determine whether pro-abortion Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) can continue to squelch protective pro-life legislation such as the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

On this day we celebrate President Trump’s interest in helping down-ballot pro-life candidates, furthering our ability to pass protective lifesaving legislation.

On this day, it’s important that voters know the differences between the candidates.

On this day, please thank President Trump for his pro-life tenacity!!
