Washington, D.C.: Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles and the Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund, released the following statement:
“On March 11, 2016, the late Phyllis Schlafly and I both endorsed Donald J. Trump for President of the United States. In a meeting just before that event, Phyllis implored Mr. Trump to faithfully support the pro-life, pro-family Republican Party Platform. He agreed to defend it and even to help us make it stronger.
“Later that year in our best-selling book The Conservative Case for Trump, Phyllis and I wrote about how we believed in Donald Trump and his pro-life agenda. Now, nearly four years later, it is apparent that President Trump is one of the most pro-life leaders our nation has experienced.
“It is my distinct pleasure to serve on President Trump’s Pro-Life Coalition. Please join me in thanking him for the gift of life that he’s given to so many Americans.”
