(LibertySociety.com) – Former President Trump spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual conference on June 24 in Washington D.C., where he promised Americans that he would put a stop to late-term abortions. A video highlighting the accomplishments of the Trump administration that protected the unborn played before he came on stage. During his speech, he detailed how he fought for pro-life policies during his presidency, starting with his historic appointments of three conservative Supreme Court justices. Calling them out by name, Trump told the crowd that he hopes they “will remain strong in the face of the harassment and intimidation” they receive from the radical wing of the Democrat Party.
Trump reiterated his belief that the overturning of Roe v. Wade put the pro-life movement in the driver’s seat, stating that “We now have the negotiating power.” State legislatures now get to decide on abortion regulations, so long as their laws do not violate the Constitution. Some laws have already been challenged in court, but the total number of abortions being performed overall in the United States has decreased by over 2,800 per month. Former President Trump is also the only sitting President of the United States to attend the annual March for Life rally since its inception in 1974, where he delivered a speech to tens of thousands of protestors at the National Mall in 2020.
The 45th President also highlighted other ways he fought for the pro-life movement, including policies that prevented taxpayer funds from being used for abortions, as well as stopping non-governmental organizations that pay for abortion counseling from receiving funding from the federal government. He also touted his battle with the United Nations, putting it on notice for its attack on pro-life countries, ending his speech by promising to continue the fight during his second term. Other presidential candidates spoke at the event, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and conservative radio host Larry Elder.
