National Right to Life Endorses President Trump for Re-Election
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – On the eve of its 49th annual convention, the National Right to Life Committee, the federation of state right-to-life affiliates and local chapters, today endorsed pro-life President Donald Trump for his re-election.
"As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life," said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. "From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled."
One of the president's first acts in office was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which prevents tax funds from being given to organizations that perform abortions or lobby to change abortion laws of host countries. Later, the president expanded this policy to prevent $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to fund the global abortion industry.
The Trump Administration also cut off funding to the United Nations Population Fund because of that agency's involvement with China's forced abortion program.
President Trump pledged "to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state."
