Right after the announcement broke of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, which means we could see Roe v. Wade overturned, President Trump delivered a letter to the National Right to Life Committee stating that the unborn have a “basic and fundamental human right, the right to life.”
This is a huge deal, as it likely means that the list of folks the president is going to consider appointing to the bench will be staunchly pro-life and will aide in the battle to return the issue of abortion back to the states where it rightfully belongs.
One of the reasons this would be such a huge victory is because it would be a whole lot easier to ban abortion at the state level than at the federal level, especially considering many states technically have banned this form of murder, only to have their laws called into question by SCOTUS.
With SCOTUS out of the way, this blight on our nation can finally be ended.
Here’s more from Trump’s letter:
“We all have a duty to defend the most basic and fundamental human right — the right to life. As President I am dedicated to protecting the lives of every American including the unborn,” Trump wrote in his letter.
The letter was issued in response to “hundreds of pro-life advocates gather to open its national convention today in Kansas City,” according to LifeNews.Advertisement - story continues below
Trump has defended many pro-life initiatives while in office, which include the defunding of international Planned Parenthood as well as relaxing restrictions on states hoping to defund the abortion giant. He also has sent taxpayer funds to women’s health centers over the abortion conglomerate:
Since my first day in office I have taken concrete actions to defend the right to life. One of the first actions I took as President was to reinstate the Mexico City policy to ensure the taxpayer dollars are not used to fund organizations that perform abortions in foreign countries. I also signed into law legislation that allows states to prioritize how they spend their family planning grant money, giving States the choice to withhold taxpayer funding from organizations that perform abortions. Further, last month my Administration proposed updates to the regulations governing the Title X Family Planning program in order to improve Women’s Health and ensure that federal funds are not used to fund the abortion industry in violation of law.
“The National Right to Life Committee’s work is critical to protecting our nation’s most vulnerable,” he wrote. “Since 1968 you have provided a voice to the voiceless. Each day you help spread compassion and promote the dignity of every human person. I am truly grateful for your efforts and I remain committed to continue working with you as we cultivate a world that values and regards every human life.”
Abortion is one of the most heinous crimes a human being can commit as it is a direct assault on the image of God, and as such, it should not only be banned but punishable by law.
Millions of innocent children have had their lives snuffed out on the altar of convenience by despicable human beings who love themselves and their comfort more than the lives they helped create.
Let’s hope we finally see the abolition of this horrendous practice now and forever.
