President Donald Trump is launching a coalition of pro-life leaders that will bring together pro-life voters from across the nation who support President Trump’s re-election. The coalition will be announced tomorrow and the “Pro-Life Voices for Trump” coalition will be led by Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser.
Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America and others will join the list of pro-life advocates leading the campaign.
“From appointing pro-life judges to defunding Planned Parenthood, President Trump’s track record demonstrates he’s the most pro-life President in history,” Dannenfelser said in a statement provided to Fox News.
“While President Trump continues to protect innocent life every day and at every stage, 2020 Democrats stand in stark contrast and support extreme pro-abortion policies,” Dannenfelser said. “Re-electing President Trump means keeping pro-life values in the White House.”

The coalition comes one day before Trump is set to speak at the March for Life.
Yesterday, President Donald Trump thrilled pro-life Americans with his announcement that he will become the first president in history to attend the March for Life. Trump will address the March for Life on Friday in live remarks to hundreds of thousands of pro-life people attending the event from across the country. He will be the first president ever to attend the March for Life in person, having addressed the March via video previously.
In one of his first acts as president, Trump reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits taxpayer funding to groups that promote or provide abortions overseas. The change defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million in U.S. tax dollars. And he has worked overtime to cut as much domestic taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood as possible.
Trump has repeatedly called out the Democratic Party’s extreme position on abortion. During his state of the union address this year, Trump slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion up to birth and infanticide. He also called for Congress to pass a ban on late-term abortions on babies who are capable of feeling pain.
Trump and his administration have made a number of changes to protect those who morally object to abortions, expanding conscience protections for medical workers who believe it is wrong to kill an unborn baby and increasing religious exemptions for Obamacare.
His administration also intervened to stop the United Nations from supporting abortion in a resolution about sexual violence. In 2018, under his leadership, the State Department removed references to the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby from a global human rights report as well.
Trump has appointed dozens of conservative judges to federal courts as well, including two to the U.S. Supreme Court.
