“It was an honor to have President Trump join us tonight, and his encouraging words were warmly received. The president’s keynote address to hundreds of dedicated pro-life advocates from around the country marks a watershed moment in the history of our cause. President Trump has embraced the pro-life movement as his own. True to his word, he is governing as the most pro-life president our nation has ever seen. He has been a fighter and a champion for unborn children, their mothers, and pro-life taxpayers, and his administration has made unprecedented gains for life. With President Trump leading the charge and the pro-life grassroots energized by his agenda, we are closer than ever to ending the injustice of abortion and restoring a society that protects every mother and child.”
