Democrats Want to Impeach President Trump to Stop His Pro-Life, Pro-Family Agenda

They’ve finally done it. After three years of threats, investigations, and fake scandals, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has finally launched an “official” effort to impeach and remove President Donald J. Trump from office.

The Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment last week, and the full House is expected to vote today to impeach President Trump.

But President Trump is not the real target — you and I and the policy gains we’ve made are. Your values and mine keep advancing in Washington, D.C. as never before with President Trump’s pro-life, pro-family, pro-religious liberty agenda.

So, liberals in Congress are moving swiftly to destroy him before he can do any more “damage” to their radical plans for America.

If they succeed, they will roll back the progress you and I have made over the last three years for faith, family, and freedom, and force their radical anti-family agenda back on our nation!

We cannot allow this political sideshow to go unanswered.

Liberals are enraged by President Trump’s tireless efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. The Trump administration’s “Protect Life Rule” stops Title X taxpayer dollars from going to family-planning facilities that perform or refer for abortions. Rather than comply with the rule, Planned Parenthood backed out of the family planning program altogether.

That decision cost Planned Parenthood $16,120,000 in direct Title X grants, in addition to the millions more they receive as subgrantees of Title X funds. Praise God this money is no longer funding abortion providers!

They are incensed by his defense of religious liberty, which he protected nationwide by issuing a historic presidential Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty in 2017.

They are furious he has appointed dozens of originalist federal judges who will defend our constitutional freedoms for years — even decades — to come. In fact, President Trump has appointed one out of every FOUR federal appellate judges now serving our nation!

And perhaps most of all, they are outraged at his steadfast support of life!

At a recent gathering of FRC Action partners, former House Freedom Caucus Chairman, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), stated that Donald Trump is “the most pro-life president in the history of America.”

These are the real reasons Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and his committee are conducting this phony impeachment process.

That’s why FRC Action is launching a nationwide effort to rally the pro-family grassroots to defend this president and his pro-family agenda.

We will not be silent witnesses to this direct attack on our lawfully elected president, on the Constitution, and on the Left’s real target: the agenda advancing YOUR values!
