Pro-Life America: Now We Must Hold Donald Trump’s Feet to the Fire

Last night, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump defeated pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton. Many Americans awoke today shocked by the results and surprised that Trump won.

During the presidential election, the pro-life movement was split. Some pro-life groups and leaders endorsed Trump — saying that the Supreme Court battle and the effort to overturn Roe vs. Wade and end over four decades of abortion was important enough to support Trump, who pledged repeatedly to appoint good constitutional judges.

Some of the same pro-life advocates pointed to Donald Trump’s pledge to defund Planned Parenthood, to sign pro-life legislation and to protect laws that stopped taxpayer funding of abortions.

Other pro-life advocates were concerned about Trump and his ability to be a pro-life president because of his past support for abortion and contradictory statement saying Planned Parenthood did “good things.”

Today, pro-life America has a job to do. Regardless of whether you voted for Trump or not, we must hold President-elect Donald Trump’s feet to the fire when it comes to the various pro-life pledges he made.

We must make sure he nominates good judges to the Supreme Court who respect the Constitution and the rule of law and who would be likely to overturn the worst decision in the high Court’s history.

We must make sure Donald Trump makes good on his pledge to sign a bill defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business and protecting us from funding America’s largest abortion company.

We must make sure Donald Trump makes good on his pledge to sign pro-life legislation to stop late-term abortions.

We must make sure Donald Trump makes good on his pledge to uphold and respect the religious liberties of pro-life Christians who don’t want to be forced to promote or be involved in abortion and abortion drugs.
