A Wisconsin pro-life organization has issued its endorsement for President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, saying he has been dedicated to advancing pro-life principles as president. Wisconsin Right to Life’s Political Action Committee has endorsed President Trump for his 2020 re-election bid.
“President Trump is one of the most pro-life presidents in the history of our country,” shares Kristen Nupson, PAC director of Wisconsin Right to Life.
President Trump, the first sitting president in United States history to attend and address the annual March for Life in person, has received wide support from pro-life groups across the county.
Nupson told LifeNews.com that “We are proud to support President Trump as the only viable candidate with a proven track record of defending the right to life. Even more importantly than his remarks at his State of the Union Addresses or the March for Life, Donald Trump has demonstrated through action his support of the unborn during his time in office. His administration has consistently backed pro-life policy and worked to build a culture of life both here in the nation and internationally.”
“We are confident President Trump will continue to advocate for the unborn and we are proud to endorse him as he seeks re-election,” states Nupson.
As President, Donald Trump has:
•Pledged to veto any legislation that weakens pro-life policy
•Vowed to defend the right to life
•Stated his opposition to any laws or policies that would encourage the destruction of human life at any stage
•Called on Congress to pass legislation to prohibit late-term abortion
•Issued regulations to ensure Title X funding does not benefit facilities that provide or refer for abortions
•Committed to defund abortion providers
Nupson said Trump’s pro-life record contrasts with that of Joe Biden, who she explained “openly supports abortion on demand as a constitutional right.”
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.
Trump has repeatedly called out the Democratic Party’s extreme position on abortion. During his State of the Union address 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.
During his presidency, the administration also finalized a new Title X rule that requires health care entities to completely separate abortion from their taxpayer-funded services. Planned Parenthood, which already has said it will not comply, could lose about $60 million annually through the policy change. However, the abortion group is suing to block the cuts.
Trump has appointed dozens of conservative judges to federal courts as well, including two to the U.S. Supreme Court and he has repeatedly told the UN that he will not promote abortion as a human right.
