On Friday, October 25, National Right to Life published, via Twitter, the following statement:
National Right to Life strongly supports the resolution put forward by @LindseyGrahamSC asking Democrats in the House to provide @realDonaldTrump with due process of law that is to be afforded all Americans. We’ll go further, calling on Speaker Pelosi to end this kangaroo court/ fishing expedition/ impeachment farce. The real reason Dems are going after @realDonaldTrump is because he’s prolife. If he supported abortion and tax dollars for Planned Parenthood, they would leave him alone.
If you are wondering why the nation’s largest single-issue pro-life organization is getting involved in this matter, the answer is simple. Our pro-life president has been under attack since he won the election in 2016, and the explanation for a large part of that assault is his unswerving pro-life position.
Donald Trump has done more for unborn children than most people could have imagined.
Let’s review just some of his Administration’s actions:
The Mexico City Policy, instituted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, prevented U.S. foreign aid from going to organizations that perform or promote abortion in family planning programs. This policy has been adopted by each Republican president since and rescinded by each Democratic president.
President Trump not only restored the policy but also substantially expanded it to cover programs dealing with HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, and malaria, and including some programs operated by the Defense Department.
The family planning programs previously covered were funded in the range of $500-600 million annually. Funding for programs covered by the “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” is about $9 billion annually, according to the State Department.
