President Trump to Protect Babies Who Survive Abortions—But Your Help Is Needed
Yesterday, President Trump made a big announcement: “I will be signing the born alive executive order to assure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty.”
This is huge.
Since 2003 there have been over 300 publicly documented cases of infants born alive after abortion, at least 143 of whom died after being born (not stillbirths).
While the text for the Executive Order has not yet been released, the President’s announcement is encouraging for those of us who believe in the inherent value of all human life. Following last month’s announcement from the Trump Administration encouraging the Supreme Court to uphold regulations on the abortion pill, this is yet another affirmation of the President’s stand for life.
Meanwhile, the Biden-Harris ticket has made its pro-abortion stance clear.
Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris voted against the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” in the Senate. This Act aimed to protect the same infants President Trump hopes to protect with his Executive Order. And the House, led by Speaker Pelosi, has refused to even take up a vote on protections for babies who survive botched abortions.
The lines could not be clearer.
Biden himself has also indicated his radical pro-abortion stance, going so far as to include it on his campaign website: “Biden will work to codify Roe v. Wade, and his Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate Roe v. Wade.”
What are these “radical” laws? They’re laws like the Louisiana statute that ensured women at abortion clinics receive a basic standard of care – like requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges. When the Supreme Court struck down that law, Biden described laws like it as “extreme.”
Life is on the ballot. Are you ready to engage?
Here are three things you can do to make your voice heard in this critical election cycle:
- Register to vote.* You can register – and even check to make sure you’re registered – by visiting https://familypolicyalliance.com/vote.
*North Dakota does not have voter registration, so skip steps 1 and 2 if you call North Dakota home!
- Make sure your church members are registered to vote! Host a voter registration drive at your church before your state’s registration deadline! Find all the details here.
- Make a plan to vote. In many states you will be able to vote early, absentee, and/or in person, so be sure to make a plan and encourage fellow church members to do the same!
This year, it’s all hands on deck to stand for family values. Are you in?
