“For decades, American taxpayers have been wrongfully forced to subsidize the abortion industry through Title X funding so today, we have kept another promise. My administration has proposed a new rule to prohibit Title X funding from going to any clinic that performs abortions.” -President Trump

Last night, President Trump delivered the keynote address at the 11th annual Campaign for Life Gala. In it, he highlighted various pro-life measures which included adopting a new proposal designed to protect unborn babies in the Title X Family Planning Grant Program.  The new proposal is not designed to cut Planned Parenthood funding, but created to ensure that taxpayer money is not used to fund abortions.

“For decades, American taxpayers have been wrongfully forced to subsidize the abortion industry through Title X funding so today, we have kept another promise,” President Trump commented. “My administration has proposed a new rule to prohibit Title X funding from going to any clinic that performs abortions.”

President Trump urged voters to select and support pro-life leaders in the upcoming elections, and highlighted his own achievements in the area of supporting pro-life measures.  He urges voters from now until November to help in selecting lawmakers who share the values of life, family, and cherish the heritage of the United States.

The event was sponsored by the Susan B. Anthony List.  The Susan B. Anthony List President, Marjorie Dannenfelser said, “President Trump has diligently and successfully gone about fulfilling his promises to the pro-life voters who worked so hard to elect him, and it has been a privilege to stand with him to defend the innocent unborn.”

“As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born I set you apart,” President Trump quoted to those in attendance. “When we look into the eyes of a newborn child, there is no doubt we see the beauty of the human soul and the mystery of God’s great creation. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is totally worth protecting.”
