Trump’s Final Pro-Life Act

Honors preborn with Sanctity of Human Life Day

President Trump, in a final act of his presidency, declares the anniversary of Roe v. Wade Sanctity of Human Life Day.

Three days before his term ends as the most pro-life president in U.S. history, President Trump released this proclamation underscoring where the real cultural war lies.

Christians and all people of goodwill believe preborn children are sacred because all human beings are unrepeatable gifts of God. The proclamation, however, speaks not only of abortion as unethical, but also unconstitutional. It mentions Roe overstepped judicial bounds and usurped states' rights to outlaw prenatal homicide.

In his proclamation, Trump declared he's taken "historic action to protect innocent lives at home and abroad." The proclamation recalls several of his pro-life accomplishments, namely:

  • Appointing three originalist judges, who do not read abortion into the Constitution

  • Permitting states to defund Planned Parenthood through Title X family planning and by withholding federal money to organizations that kill preborn children

  • Halting federal funding of abortion overseas with the Mexico City Policy

  • Protecting conscience rights for faith-based adoption and for employers like Little Sisters of the Poor from having to include abortion-inducing drugs in their health care plans

  • Appointing many pro-life cabinet members and judges

  • Fighting for legislation in the senate to protect preborn children

  • Being the first president ever to appear at the national March for Life in Washington

Pro-lifers observe that while other Republican presidents considered themselves pro-life, this one made the protection of preborn children a top priority — even during his last week in office.
