Members of the Electoral College cast the final votes in the 2016 presidential election on Monday, affirming Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States.

Despite reports of GOP electors receiving harassing phone calls and emails for weeks leading up to Monday’s vote, nearly all of the 538 men and women who were chosen by state parties to participate in the constitutional rite abided by the people’s vote in their state.

Trump’s victory was assured when Texas voted to put Trump over the 270-vote threshold. One Texas elector voted for Ron Paul and one for Ohio Gov. John Kasich

At least seven Democratic electors across the country had signaled ahead of the official vote that they were willing to break from their party to support a Republican alternative to Trump, hoping enough of their GOP counterparts would join them and block the president-elect from taking office. But that didn’t come close to happening.

Since defeating Clinton on election night, Trump has received praise from pro-life leaders for selecting pro-life advocates for key leadership positions.

Trump has named pro-life Governor Nikki Haley as his UN Ambassador and pro-life senator Jeff Sessions as his attorney general. Trump has also selected pro-life Congressman Tom Price to become his secretary for the health and human services department and he named pro-life physician Ben Carson as his HUD Secretary as well as pro-life advocate Betsy DeVos as his education secretary.

During the presidential debate Donald Trump made it very clear that he will appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court who would be likely to overturn the Roe versus Wade decision that has led to 58 million abortions.

Trump said he is pro-life and the kinds of Judges he would put on the nation’s highest court are those that would be the kind pro-life voters would appreciate. For pro-life voters, the Supreme Court is probably the most important election issue this year as the nation’s highest court could control the fate of abortion for decades to come and whether another 58 million abortions happen or if unborn children will eventually enjoy legal protection.

“The Supreme Court – it’s what it’s all about. Our country is so, just so imperative that we have the right justices,” Trump said. ” I feel that the justices that I am going to appoint– and I’ve named 20 of them. The justices that I’m going to appoint will be pro-life. They will have a conservative bent.

Trump talked about the kind of temperament that is best for a potential Supreme Court justice to have.

They are great scholars in all cases, and they are people of tremendous respect. They will interpret the Constitution the way the founders wanted it interpreted. And I believe that’s very, very important. I don’t think we should have the justices appointed that decide what they want to hear,” he said. “It’s all about the Constitution of — and so important — the Constitution, the way it was meant to be. And those are the people that I will appoint. “

Asked if Roe v. wade would be overturned by judges Trump would appoint, he said that would be the case.

Well, if that would happen because I am pro-life, and I will be appointing pro-life judges,” Trump said. “Well if we put another two or perhaps three justices on that’s really what’s going to be — that will happen. It’ll happen automatically in my opinion because I am putting pro-life justices on the court.”
