Donald Trump commits to fight abortion! Letter sent to Pro-Life leaders

Donald Trump has issued a statement to pro-life leaders explaining his plans to protect and preserve the lives of our most vulnerable citizens. As leaders in this fight, we would like to share his words with you in our community. Please keep the unborn in mind when you visit the polls this November.

September 2016

Dear Pro-Life Leader:

I am writing to invite you to join my campaign’s Pro-Life Coalition, which is being spearheaded by
longtime leader Marjorie Dannenfelser.

As we head into the final stretch of the campaign, the help of leaders like you is essential to ensure
that pro-life voters know where I stand, and also know where my opponent, Hillary Clinton, stands.

Hillary Clinton not only supports abortion on-demand for any reason, but she’d take it a step further:
she wants to force the taxpayers to pay for abortions by repealing the bi-partisan Hyde Amendment.
Hillary Clinton also supports abortion until an hour before birth. And she will only appoint Supreme
Court justices who share this view.

She doesn’t even try to hide her extremism. When asked on Meet the Press when unborn children
have constitutional rights, Clinton bluntly responded, “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional
rights.” She is so committed to this view that she proclaimed in a speech that “religious beliefs.
have to be changed” in order to advance her abortion agenda.

Hillary Clinton’s unwavering commitment to advancing taxpayer-funded abortion on-demand stands
in stark contrast to the commitments I’ve made to advance the rights of unborn children and their
mothers when elected president.

I am committed to:
– Nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.
– Signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful
late-term abortions nationwide.
– Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and reallocating
their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care
for women.
– Making the Hyde Amendment permanent law to protect taxpayers from having to pay for

Your help is crucial to make this contrast clear in the minds of pro-life voters, especially those in
battleground states. Together we can form this vital coalition so that Mike Pence and I can be
advocates for the unborn and their mothers every day we are in the White House.

    Two things. First, the right of personal autonomy trumps any claim on the growing clump of cells from a pregnancy by an outsider. If you question this, think about the following: I am the only match for a person who needs a kidney or he/she will die, am I obligated to give up the kidney? Second, to even think of voting for Trump because of this issue, when he is clearly a danger to the USA on so many fronts, exposes your delusion.

    Why would anyone believe what Trump says, at this point? He lies as much as Hillary Clinton. He has been pro-choice. During the campaign he said Planned Parenthood did good work. This is all political; there’s no good reason to believe a word he says.
    As usual, the larger issue is ignored. Why does the RCC protest abortion? Answer – because it believes that the souls of the unbaptized go to Hell. You are allowed to believe they go to Limbo, but that’s not official doctrine. You are also allowed to “hope” that Yahweh is not a monster who sends complete innocents to eternal torment, but this is a vague and limited hope. The catechism is clear in saying that the Church knows of no way to salvation outside of baptism. The real problem with abortion is that if Yahweh is sending these innocent unbaptized souls (assuming such exist) to Hell, then we have a much greater problem because we’re worshipping an evil god.
    Some Christians – mostly Protestants, insist that the unbaptized stillborn, miscarried or aborted fetuses all go directly to heaven – in which case, what’s the problem? Our whole purpose here, we’re told, is to get from here to over there wherever it is that Yahweh is, and these souls go from starting line to winner’s circle without having to run the race. They don’t have to suffer for 7 or 8 decades like most of us, they don’t have to roll the salvation dice and hope they are believing the right thing (which is mostly being fortunate enough to be born of the right parents in the right country with the right religion) – they get to go right to heaven! What a deal. So what’s the objection? Jealousy?
    From an election standpoint – Johnson/Weld is the only real option this time around IMHO.
