St. Louis MO: At the beginning of April, the White House released a proclamation declaring this month as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Several lines into the March 29 document appears the line, "We must always remember that all children are blessings from our Creator. They are endowed from conception with value, purpose, and human dignity." [Emphasis added]
"This type of language indicates that the Trump Administration is poised to be the most pro-life Administration in recent history," said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. "This document quickly slipped out of sight and mind as April roared into fiscal fights, foreign policy decisions, and political hit jobs run amok in the swap.
"We would do well to celebrate such strong pro-life language regarding conception coming from official White House documents. This serves as a reminder that President Trump has already put one pro-life justice on the Supreme Court. We see plans developing quickly for another open seat on the bench. Pro-life conservatives should coalesce behind the President now, and encourage the language and policy we read in this document.
"President Trump is giving us a real opportunity to advance the fundamental human right to life, and we must praise him for it and encourage it! If we want to make change happen in Washington, we must praise politicians when they do the right things and push them to continue! This is a real opportunity for change in our nation, and we ask pro-life conservatives to join Phyllis Schlafly Eagles in seizing the momentum!"
