Donald Trump has welcomed a pro-life advocate to head up his campaign’s pro-life coalition. The Republican presidential candidate also released a decidedly pro-life agenda.
According to Charisma News, Trump has made the most unequivocal pro-life commitment that any presidential candidate has ever made.
If elected, Trump has committed to nominating pro-life Supreme Court justices, signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and to making the Hyde Amendment a permanent law, making sure taxpayer dollars do not go to funding abortions.
Charisma News contributor Bryan Fischer notes that this means Trump plans to uphold the Constitution’s protection of the right to life.
If Trump were to defund Planned Parenthood, the $534 million the organization receives every year would be redirected to fund women’s health centers which provide comprehensive healthcare.
Fischer notes that these pro-life pledges are validated by Trump’s appointment of Marjorie Dannenfelser to his campaign.
Dannenfelser is the head of the pro-life organization the Susan B. Anthony List and has led the pro-life cause for over two decades. She is thus a bold choice for Trump’s campaign, and as Fischer notes, leaves no doubt about the message he is trying to communicate.
