Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is one of the pro-life candidates seeking the GOP nod to take on pro-abortion Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Cruz has a long pro-life track record in office and it’s one he says in a new video he will continue as president.
“A candidate that can’t be trusted to protect the right to life can’t be trusted to protect any of our other God-given rights either. When you look at the voting records of politicians…if they’re bad on life, they’re always — I repeat always — bad on everything else, too,” Cruz says in the new video.
“As president of the United States, I pledge to you that I will do everything within my power to end the scourge of abortion once and for all. That I will use the full constitutional power and the bully pulpit of the presidency to promote a culture of life,” Cruz continues. “That I will sign any legislation put on my desk to defend the least of these, including legislation that defends the rights of all persons, without exception other than the life of the mother, from conception to natural death. That I will not only defund Planned Parenthood, but I will instruct the Department of Justice to investigate Planned Parenthood and to prosecute any and all criminal conduct which those videos that we saw from the Center for Medical Progress so powerfully evidenced.”
“Everything I just pledged to you should be an automatic requirement for any prospected president who takes an oath of office before an all-powerful God to preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution,” Cruz adds.
