After just one term, Donald Trump and his administration may be remembered as the most pro-life in history. Several members of the White House team recently reflected on the administration’s many accomplishments.
“I believe a society can be judged by how it deals with its most vulnerable: the aged, the infirm, the disabled and the unborn,” Vice President Mike Pence said. “President Trump said early in our administration, and I quote, ‘every person is worth protection, every human life, born and unborn, is made in the holy image of Almighty God.’ In this administration, it’s always been about life.”

Pence mentioned how Trump stopped American dollars from going overseas to pay for promoting abortions and, back here in the United States, helped deal a financial blow to America’s No. 1 abortion provider.
“I had the honor of casting the tie-breaking vote in the United States Senate to allow every state in America to defund Planned Parenthood,” he said. “And President Trump signed it into law.”
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany made it personal, talking about holding her newborn daughter as she accepted the job of press secretary.
“I started to cry, because I was like ‘I’m going to miss my little baby,’ and my tears started to fall on her face,” McEnany recalled. “And all of a sudden she let out what I swear was her first smile. And it was God’s way of saying, ‘You go do what you need to do.’ And I’ll tell you what this president did when he first offered me the job. He said, ‘Is your daughter going to be OK?’ Because he is a president that supports moms. He’s a president that supports life.’
Pence also hailed the more than 200 pro-life judges and three Supreme Court justices whom Trump has put on the bench.
“I believe what we’ve demonstrated over these past four years is that when men and women who cherish the sanctity of life come together, let their voices be heard, when we rally behind great leaders at every level who will stand without apology for life, we can make extraordinary progress,” he said.
