President Donald Trump just gave Americans another good reason to reelect him.
Breitbart reports that Trump on Thursday pledged to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood if elected to a second term.
Trump to continue his fight for the unborn
President Trump made the promise in a letter addressed to “Pro-Life Leaders and Activists.” The letter was released on Thursday by Pro-Life Voices for Trump, a group that champions policies that protect the unborn.
“With your help, I will win-reelection, ensuring we have another four years to fight in the trenches for unborn children and their mothers,” the letter reads.
President Trump, in the letter, list three things that he promises to do, if reelected, including to “fully defund the big abortion industry such as Planned Parenthood of our tax dollars.”
The president’s other two promises are to “continue our transformation of the federal judiciary, filling the Supreme Court and lower courts with judges who will respect the Constitution and not legislate an abortion agenda from the bench;” and, to “overcome Democratic filibusters in Congress to finally pass and sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection act.”
Trump v. Biden on Abortion
In the remainder of the letter, President Trump highlights two things: his accomplishments on the pro-life front and Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s pro-abortion stance.
“Since my inauguration, I have proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history,” the letter reads. “Together, we have accomplished so much for unborn children and their mothers during my first term in office.”
The letter lists six of these accomplishments, including “Fighting for the unborn around the globe,” “Stopping taxpayer funding of the big abortion industry,” and “Ending taxpayer funding for new medical research using aborted baby body parts.”
The president then went on to contrast his “pro-life leadership” with “Joe Biden’s abortion extremism.” Trump writes:
The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide – leaving babies to die after failed abortions. Joe Biden’s embrace of this extreme position is most evidenced by his support for taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is an abhorrent position that must be defeated at the ballot box. Joe Biden has doubled down on these positions with his selection of abortion extremist Kamala Harris as his running mate.
A vote for Trump-Pence = A vote for life
President Trump concluded the letter: “I urge every pro-life American to join this effort and do your part to defeat abortion extremism this November. Instead, we can score a major, historic victory for unborn children and their mothers.”
