With the presidential election just one week away, pro-life voters are using letters to the editor to encourage other pro-life Americans to support Donald Trump. They say Trump offers the only chance for unborn children to have legal protection via the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade.

Trump has previously offered two lists of potential Supreme Court nominees. Conservative and pro-life groups held both lists as containing the kind of nominees they would prefer to see who would be for legal protection for unborn children.

On the other hand pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has made it very clear that the only nominees she would consider for the high court would be potential judges who strongly support abortion and keeping Roe and it’s unlimited abortions in place.

“Abortion, an unjust, ugly procedure, should of course be illegal. Donald Trump has said that if he is elected president, he will appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade and return the issue to the states,” says pro-life voter Mark Peterson.

“As a Catholic Christian, I have a moral obligation to vote against abortion, an unjust, cruel death sentence for more than 50 million innocent unborn little ones since 1973. I invite all Catholics and Christians to join me in voting for Donald Trump. Together, we may put an end to abortion for good,” he continued.

Pro-life voter Mary Lyons hailed Trump for his debate performance where he blasted Hillary Clinton for supporting late-term abortions.

“It took a lot of courage to be so politically incorrect and say the words “partial birth abortion” during the third debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton,” she wrote. “Trump reminded America that he is not afraid to stand up for the unborn, spelling out what partial birth abortion really is. Was it uncomfortable to hear? Of course.”

“Clinton continues to stand by her vote against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. In 2007 the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law’s constitutionality in a 5-to-4 decision,” Lyons continued.

She concluded:  “Our Supreme Court spoke on behalf of the unborn then. Let is keep this in mind as we vote on Tuesday. What greater right do we have, than to live?”
