Trump Tells Pro-Lifers At March For Life: ‘They’re Coming After Me Because I’m Fighting For You’

Speaking to pro-life demonstrators gathered at the March for Life in Washington D.C. on Friday, President Donald Trump said “unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House.”

Trump criticized the “far left” for their attacks against faith-based charities, assault on religion in the public square, and attempts to silence “Americans who believe in the sanctity of life.”

“They are coming after me because I’m fighting for you,” Trump said. “And we are fighting for those who have no voice. And we will win because we know how to win.”

As the first president to ever attend and speak at the March for Life, an annual gathering of hundreds of thousands of Americans to peacefully call for an end to abortion, Trump emphasized his administration’s pro-life policy initiatives and strengthening of religious liberty.

“We issued a landmark pro-life rule to govern the use of Title X taxpayer funding,” he said. “I notified Congress that I would veto any legislation that weakens pro-life policies or encourages the destruction of human life.”

Trump attacked Democrats for their support of taxpayer-funded abortion, including Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who recently advocated for infanticide.

“We have the case of the governor in the state of Virginia…we love the commonwealth of Virginia, but what is going on in Virginia?” Trump asked. “The governor stated that he would execute a baby after birth.”

Trump praised and thanked the pro-life movement for their work to help women and children.

“You stand for life each and every day. You provide housing, education, jobs and medical care to the women that you serve. You find loving families for children in need of a forever home,” he said. “You host baby showers for expecting moms. You make it your life’s mission to spread God’s grace.”

After Trump’s remarks, attendees marched up Constitution Avenue toward the Supreme Court, the site of landmark Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal in the United States 47 years ago.

  1. Finally we have a President who is not afraid to openly display his beliefs on this issue. For far too long we have been force fed the statement that “it is a woman’s right to choose”. I believe that that statement to be true, just not the way that it has been weaponized against the unborn. It is absolutely a woman’s right to choose to engage in sexual activity, and it is also a woman’s right to choose HOW to engage in that sexual activity. If a woman chooses to be sexually active with one or multiple partners WITHOUT taking precautions to avoid becoming pregnant she does not then have the right to have an abortion should she become pregnant. There are consequences to everything we do in life. Far too many women are using abortion as a form of birth control. Hoping you don’t become pregnant is not an effective form of birth control. There are a host of products that help prevent pregnancy( the most effective being abstinence) available on the open market to continue to use the old excuses of: 1) But we only had sex once. 2) I am not ready for a baby/ can’t afford a baby. 3) I don’t want to give up my career or freedom etc. If a woman makes the conscious choice to have sex with a man ( and yes that is still the traditional way of having sex regardless of what these mentally disturbed liberals try to say) and then becomes pregnant from this conscious decision than she is going to be a mother. If she does not want that child there are many people who cannot have a child or who may be looking to add to their family who are looking to adopt. Then there is also the males side of things. I will never say that every man will do the right thing and accept responsibility, just as I will never say that every woman will do the right thing and accept responsibility, but there are plenty of men who are denied the right to be a father because the woman had an abortion. I will now step down off my soapbox but I leave you all with this:
    Your parents chose life. Your mother did not abort you.
    Choose who you have sex with wisely. Someone’s life depends on it.

  2. “They’re coming after me because I’m fighting for you” is patently FALSE. They are coming after Trump for his impeachable call to Zelensky on July 25. Not the 2016 election, not the 2020 election, but because of his 2019 crime.

  3. Democrats lie because Democrats always lie even when the truth is easier.
    TRUMP – PENCE 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸
    TRUMP TRAIN TRUMP TRAIN
