Looking forward to January 21, 2017 with enormous anticipation

When the headline to the story written by the Associated Press’s David Crary and Rachel Zoll announces, “Trump Win Resets Culture War Debate on Abortion,” we could expect another Doomsday story from the reliably pro-abortion AP. And we’d be right.

“For the combatants in America’s long-running culture wars, the triumph of Donald Trump and congressional Republicans was stunning — sparking elation on one side, deep dismay on the other.”

Had the results been reversed, so, too, would have been the responses by pro- and anti-life forces. And that is why NRL News and NRL News Today wrote literally hundreds of posts over the last year, driving home this simple but critically important message: Donald Trump is solidly pro-life, Hillary Clinton is a pro-abortion extremist.

Last week Planned Parenthood admitted that abortion was there for the electorate to vote on November 8. In response to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s question, ”Do you think that Roe v. Wade is at risk?,” PPFA President Cecile Richards responded, “Absolutely.”

“I mean, I think Roe vs. Wade was on the ballot in this election.”

That it was.


And the pro-life side–the defenders of unborn babies–won.

As we move forward with everything that a change from a pro-abortion to a pro-life administration means, we need to remember that for many pro-lifers of faith, an added incentive to vote against Clinton and for Trump was their faith that Trump would end the assault on religious liberties President Obama began and which, if anything, a President Hillary Clinton would have ramped up.

There is the onerous HHS mandate adopted under a provision of ObamaCare which compels employers to provide health coverage for drugs and procedures to which they have moral or religious objections. There have been narrow exceptions subsequently enacted, but the onus is still on many businesses and individuals to violate their consciences.

Much to be done. I cannot wait for January 21, 2017. Or for January 27, when hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers will assemble in our nation’s capital to celebrate a historic victory.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
