Next President Must be Pro-Life Because Abortion is the “Human Rights Battle of Our Time”

Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he is running for president again — and his candidacy is a reminder that the next presidential election will be a monumental battle over abortion.

Joe Biden is the Abortion President. He has done everything possible to promote killing babies up to birth  — whether through appointments, executive orders or promoting legislation to legalzie abortions up to birth nationwide following the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews today that her group appreciates Trump’s pro-life record and that he or another pro-life presidential candidate need to step up and fight for unborn babies.

“President Trump raised the bar for what it means to be a pro-life presidential candidate and president. As a candidate, he made written commitments to the pro-life movement and exposed Hillary Clinton’s extreme abortion views on the debate stage. As president, he kept his promises to the pro-life movement, chief among them to only nominate pro-life judges to the Supreme Court. Thanks to President Trump keeping his word, we got Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett – and therefore, the historic Dobbs decision,” she said.

Whether the Republican nominee is Trump or another pro-life candidate like Ron DeSantis, Dannenfelser says the candidate must be willing to put the pro-life agenda front and center and expose the radical abortion agenda of Biden and Democrats.

“The Dobbs decision returned the issue of abortion back to the people to decide through their elected representatives in the states, in Congress, and in the White House. In this new Dobbs era, the pro-life movement needs a presidential nominee in 2024 who will advocate for national minimum protections for unborn children centered around when the baby can feel pain or when the baby’s heartbeat can be detected. The GOP presidential nominee must also be prepared to go on offense to boldly defend his or her position and contrast it with Democratic abortion extremism. This is the human rights battle of our time,” she said.

The SBA pro-lfie lead said the choice is clear between the pro-life positoons of Republicans and the abortion up to birth polciies of Democrats in blue states.

“In this new Dobbs era, some in the GOP have suggested this is an issue solely for the states to decide and that Congress and the president have no role. This amounts to a death sentence to unborn babies in blue states that allow abortion on demand until birth, such as California, Illinois and New York. It is an unacceptable position for any 2024 GOP presidential contender to hold,” she said.

She concluded: “We look forward to President Trump and all presidential contenders outlining their pro-life vision and policy platform in the new Dobbs era as the primary election unfolds.”
