President Trump Makes Pro-Life History

In 43 years of pro-life advocacy I have never seen such momentum and advancement on behalf of innocent human life than what I’ve witnessed since President Donald Trump has taken office.

He’s been a steadfast and unwavering champion for the unborn. Early on an unlikely vehicle to many, he has proven the naysayers wrong and demonstrated a deep commitment to saving babies and caring for mothers – even when Congress has refused to act.

Then, just days ago, pro-life history was made.

I and other Life Issues Institute staff watched from only feet away as President Trump made history, becoming the first President of the United States to address a pro-life gathering in person. And he made a powerful presence!

Addressing the Susan B. Anthony List 2018 Campaign for Life Gala (Life Issues Institute is now a proud member of the SBA family), President Trump stated, “When I ran for office, I pledged to stand for life. And as President, that’s exactly what I’ve done. I have kept my promise….”

The president is right.

The list of the pro-life promises President Trump has kept is growing daily – a testament not only to his leadership but to the overwhelming strength of the pro-life movement. Here are just some of the president’s greatest pro-life achievements so far:

  • Surrounding himself with pro-life stalwarts like Mike Pence, who he recently called a “true leader in the Pro-life Movement,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.
  • Appointing pro-life Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, which was a key promise that drew wide-spread support from many in the pro-life community.
  • Promising to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when babies in the womb can feel the excruciating pain of abortion.
  • Reinstituting the Mexico City Policy and expanding it to bar any U.S. government foreign assistance from funding abortion.
  • Creating the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division within the Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services, which will protect doctors, nurses and other health care professionals who do not want to participate in the abortion procedure.
  • Announcing the federal Protect Life Rule, which will direct Title X tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities and toward pro-life health care centers.

President Donald Trump

Look at all he has accomplished in less than a year and a half. Then consider the time he has left. This is a thrilling opportunity for the pro-life movement, because day by day, we are getting closer to a time when the poison venom of Roe vs. Wade is overturned and abortion is put to a swift end in America.

Having the President of the United States attend our SBA family event is certainly exhilarating, but Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List, put things into perspective in an email Tuesday morning.

We are who we are because we know who we aren’t. We are servants of the greatest of American causes. We know we are not the cause itself. You keep your eye on the precious boys and girls waiting to be born. You keep your humor knowing we do every single thing we can do to save them and the rest is up to the One who made them.

As the president said in his speech Tuesday night, “We know that every life has meaning and that every life is totally worth protecting.”

Pray that President Trump, Vice President Pence and the rest of the administration successfully continue to save both babies and mothers. Victory lies just over the horizon.

For the unborn,

Bradley Mattes

  1. Hats off to President Trump. While I don’t always agree with him, I did vote for him based solely on his decidedly Pro-Life stance. I’m glad I did. While we have to start in baby steps to end this country’s culture of death, he certainly has taken some giant strides. I pray for his continued support of the unborn innocents so that we can, together, stop the genocide of the unborn that has taken place since 1973.

  2. Thank you for the report. Our local, liberal leaning newspaper reports the negative not the positive about our President. Often these are opinion pieces, too.

  3. I am so proud and so hope filled to be an American under this GREAT Pro-Life President! Whether people know it, admit it, or choose to reject it, we each choose to live in a country that was formed by founders with a philosophy that LIFE is the FIRST RIGHT of an American. To continue to be a generous and compassionate country, we must uphold this first right for the most vulnerable human persons – and that includes the baby and the mother, and the elderly and disabled. We must love life as God gives it! Thank you President Trump for loving life!

  4. Amen. Amen. Amen. We the Christians should understand the redemptive power of God for all and by God’s grace I have been redeemed. Thank you for your service to our Country and to our World. We need all humans, especially the small.

  5. Thank you for listing the wonderful accomplishments of our President in the Pro Life movement. I pray for President Trump daily because he needs prayer to continue his good works. Those who oppose him work tirelessly to defeat him. I will add Mr. Mattes to my prayer list so he will be able to continue his leadership of theLife Issues Institute. Thank you again. Patricia Durbin.

  6. If President Trump doesn’t get the wall built, he’ll be most remembered for that. But his staunch Pro-Life stance should never be forgotten, as that was the #1 reason so many of us voted for him (or voted against Hillary).

  7. Well I’m sorry I didn’t know about our country’s first Prolife President Trump is remarkably keeping his commitments.
    When the abyss seems so deep that adversity seams the consciences of society. One can’t help to think that God’s handiwork is truly on our side in answering His prayerful of this beautiful USA. Now how can we help Ireland?

    Thank You President Trump for saving The United States of America

  8. Thank you God for this strength this man exhibits every single day as he goes out into the swamp and vows that he will fight corruption against ALL odds, at every corner and at every turn. They so love their corrupt ways and all the money they steal from law abiding tax payers, that they are fighting tooth-and-nail to stop him bc he is good and they are not. Is it any wonder they slander and throw slurs and lies at
    him every step of the way??? The Bible tells us that, “The righteous fall down 7 times and they get up again; but the wicked fall down once and stumble into ruin.” Just wait and see how they inevitably implode upon themselves. THANK YOU President for truly MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

  9. Thank you Jesus! It is about time we have a president that cares enough to stand in the gap for the pre-born children of the United States of America. Thank you President Trump! God will bless you for doing the right things.
