It’s no secret that many pro-life voters have been skeptical of Donald Trump ever since he first began his presidential campaign.

But two years into his administration, Trump has worked to keep his promises to pro-lifers.

“Despite the initial distrust of conservatives like myself, President Trump has proved himself more true to Christian ideals than a good number of Republican presidents before him,” pro-life attorney Kristi Burton Brown wrote at Christian Post.

Brown said she initially did not like Trump. His past actions and statements worried her when she attended the 2016 Republican National Convention as a delegate. But her opinion gradually changed after Trump became president and began following through with some of his promises.

She wrote:

Does he always speak like a compassionate Republican? No. Yet we – the church, the people on the ground, the Republican citizens – we can fill the void there. We can personally welcome the refugee when they walk through the doors of our churches. We can match compassion with boldness.

But what we cannot do is appoint federal judges. We cannot strong-arm China (a giant human rights violator) through trade policy. We cannot take away funding from Planned Parenthood’s international arm or from other organizations that push abortion on women in developing nations. We cannot rewrite HHS policy to include preborn children as human beings.

President Trump can do these things. He has done these things.

Trump and his administration have worked to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses in numerous ways during the past two years.

Some efforts have been successful, while others have been thwarted by the abortion industry and activist judges. But no one can accuse the Trump administrating of doing nothing to stop our hard-earned tax dollars from supporting the largest abortion chain in America.

His most successful effort, one pro-abortion House Democrats are trying to undo, was to sign and expand the Mexico City policy. The move defunded the International Planned Parenthood Federation of an estimated $100 million and an unknown additional amount from the British abortion chain Marie Stopes International.

The Trump administration also stopped funding a United Nations agency linked to forced and coerced abortions in China. And the administration is battling in court over two other efforts to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion chain through the Title X and Teen Pregnancy Prevention programs.

These efforts, along with his nominations of conservative judges and efforts to end taxpayer-funded research grants that buy aborted baby body parts, are just some of the ways he has fulfilled his promises.

Trump may not be an ideal politician, but no one can deny that his efforts are making a positive impact on the future for unborn babies and their mothers.
