|Donald Trump takes the Presidential Oath of Office|
Looking forward, single-issue pro-lifers are ecstatic. Here’s why.
Let’s start with something that simply is not given the importance it deserves. No major pro-life candidate for President has ever been as bold, as straightforward, and as unambiguous about his pro-life credentials as President Trump
Over the course of the campaign, Mr. Trump made a series of very explicit promises to the pro-life community. It begins with the aforementioned promise to nominate only pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. In his first press conference after the election, then President-elect Trump said that would make his first nomination (to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia) “within two weeks” of his inauguration.
Mr. Trump also vowed to sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide, defund Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and reallocate their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.
The speech was brief and vintage Trump. There were few rhetorical flourishes –but they were very good–and many, many promises to keep faith with the American people. Most specifically that “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”
And no one has been more forgotten, more neglected, or treated more unfairly than the unborn child.
