WASHINGTON, D.C. — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has released a new video highlighting President Trump’s pro-life accomplishments since assuming office in January 2017.
The video, produced at Priests for Life headquarters in Titusville, Florida, opens with the statement, “Many pro-life people worked hard to elect President Donald Trump. That hard work has paid off for the pro-life movement and the unborn.”
The video then goes on, in a “top 10” format, to summarize what he has done for the cause of protecting children in the womb.
The accomplishments include supporting pro-life legislation to protect babies and to defund the abortion industry; appointing pro-life people to key positions at the White House; ending the HHS mandate that tried to compel faith-based employers to provide free abortifacient drugs to their employees; ending U.S. funding for abortion overseas; protecting state and federal money from going to the abortion industry, and appointing outstanding judges to the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court.
The video also touts the president’s most important accomplishment:
“The first and greatest thing that President Trump did for the pro-life movement was to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.”
The video calls on Americans to vote in the Nov. 6 midterm elections to ensure that pro-life lawmakers remain in the majority in both the House and the Senate.
“The election of 2018 will be about the Trump voters from 2016. They need to turn out in equal and greater numbers, and this video seeks to motivate them to do just that. Just as the 2016 election defied political history, this midterm election can do the same, for the same reason: The people who want to make America great again, to make the children in the womb protected again,” Father Pavone said. “A Democrat takeover of Congress will mean that, instead of the Congress de-funding Planned Parenthood or protecting babies from painful late-term abortions, they will be embroiled in impeachment proceedings that will not in fact result in removing either the president or Justice Kavanaugh from their positions, and will only be a waste of the time and energy of the American people and those whom they elect.”
Father Pavone invited news outlets to post the video on their websites and to broadcast it on the air. An audio file is available for radio stations. Both audio and video can be found at prolifepresident.com
“In November, Americans must vote, and must vote pro-life,” he said. “The lives of millions of unborn babies depend on it.”
