Although there have been major setbacks in the pro-life arena this year, we have a major ally working to make things right: the President of the United States.
On Thursday, Feb. 14th, Donald Trump hosted a special conference call that was important to pro-life supporters everywhere.
Attending the call? 4,500 pro-life leaders concerned about where our country and our world are heading.
We have all the details of what Pres. Trump had to say and how it could help the pro-life cause in the future.
We all know that Pres. Trump has had his share of put-downs in the media, but it doesn’t look like he will ever let it change his mind or his plans when it comes to leading our country.
Since he came into office, Trump has been clear on his pro-life views.
There was no difference in his demeanor on this special conference call when he spoke about the devastating new laws passed in New York and the suggested for Virginia.
In fact, a press release before the call made his opinion very clear to the public.
“Recently, our country has witnessed a chilling disregard for life as some states have taken up legislation that would legalize abortion up until just moments before a child’s birth,” the White House said. “President Trump and his administration are committed to defending and protecting the gift of life.”
As Christians, we know that life is a gift to be cherished: ALL life. We realize that people are more than just bones and organs. We know that they are a soul to be loved and that God loves that soul as soon as it is conceived.
But we also know that there are those who do not believe that all life is worth the trouble or effort of love; and that there has been a tremendous movement to pass laws that, more and more, infringe on the rights that we should all have to life, even from the womb.
And what’s worse is that the mothers are told that it is all a health issue and that their baby is not even really a baby yet and that she shouldn’t feel badly. Everything will be okay.
They are all being deceived into these lies, and many believe them.
Although this historic conference call was not recorded for public listening, there are some who participated in the phone call who helped to shed some light on what occurred during this conversation.
Trump was said to have thanked their efforts in the battle for protecting the lives of innocents.
“I want to thank all the thousands of pro-lifers and pro-life leaders, pastors, families and advocates for joining this call and for working with such love and devotion to build a culture that cherishes human life,” Trump reportedly said.
Pastor Mike Evans said that Trump even used the word “execution” when mentioning the new laws that have been passed in New York, and that are being suggested in Virginia, for late-term abortion. These laws allow abortions to take place just before the child is born. In fact, they can even stop a child’s life when they are already in the birth canal.
This is a tragedy and should be fought against. Trump certainly seems to be supporting the fight against this evil against human life. In fact, the press release said that Trump had signed a letter to Congress, “making clear that he will veto any legislation that weakens existing Federal protections of innocent life.”
So, what are we to do in the meantime? Well, we must keep fighting the fight against abortion, no matter what those in the pro-choice field throw at us. We must be fearless in the face of all of this adversity because we are fighting for those who cannot defend themselves.
A baby in the womb cannot speak. They cannot fight. They do not even know what goes on around them, nor that their lives are in danger. They feel safe in the womb and in that safety is where we should fight to keep them until they are ready to leave their mother’s womb.
We have to be their voice and we have to fight their fight. For if those who believe in the gift of life will not fight for it, who will?
It is definitely a good sign for this cause that Trump says that all children are, “made in the Holy Image of God.” Now we will see how far he will take his convictions in the fight against death.
If you would also like to support the fight for life, I encourage you to look for a pregnancy crisis center near you and volunteer your time or money for their cause.

And as always, as we all know, prayer is the most effective weapon we have against any evil. Let us use this weapon to stop abortion and pray for the lives of those who cannot speak for themselves.
