Donald Trump: “As President I am Committed to Protecting the Right to Life” and Defunding Planned Parenthood

The president expresses his firm belief in the right to life of unborn babies.

“The right to life is fundamental and universal. As your President, I am dedicated to protecting the lives of every American, including the unborn.”

Trump then launches into a defense of defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

“As I have made clear, organizations like #PlannedParenthood should not receive Federal funding if they perform abortions. For that reason, I was proud to sign into law a bill that allows States to prioritize how they spend their Federal family planning grant money, including the choice to withhold taxpayer funding from organizations that insist on performing abortions,” he said.

Trump also defended signing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood on an international level.

“I am also dedicated to ensuring that America does not fund abortions abroad. That is why one of the first actions I took as President was to reinstate and modernize the Mexico City policy, which ensures that American taxpayer dollars are not used to fund organizations that perform abortions in foreign countries,” he said.
