Trump Makes History as Most Pro-Life President

On Friday, January 19th, 2018, President Trump took some important and unprecedented steps towards protecting the rights of unborn children in the United States, starting by proclaiming January 22, 2018 as “National Sanctity of Human Life Day.”

The president stressed the importance of “reverence for EVERY human life,” and said that “we must be particularly vigilant to safeguard the most vulnerable lives among us.”

President Trump said that the purpose of National Sanctity of Human Life Day is “to affirm the truth that all life is sacred, that every person has inherent dignity and worth,” something he said “defines the character of our nation.”

In a statement, the president described the impact that new medical technology has had on determining that unborn babies are capable of smiling, moving, and are alive, and how important it is to find alternatives to mass-abortion.

“Though the fight to protect life is not yet over, we commit to advocating each day for all who cannot speak for themselves,” said President Trump.

Trump wasn’t finished there, and became the first U.S. President to address the March For Life, a pro-life advocacy event that has occurred for 45 years, in response to the “Roe v. Wade” abortion ruling of 1973.

President Trump called for an end to late-term abortions, which he said were “wrong,” and “must change.”

As White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pointed out, in just one year, President Trump “has become the most pro-life president in the history of the United States.”
