Trump Announces Plan for Permanent Banishment of Taxpayer Funded Abortions! [VIDEO]


Polling has consistently shown that Americans do not favor taxpayer funding for abortion. This is why, year after year, the Hyde Amendment is added to appropriations bills — it bans federal funding for abortion. But it isn’t added without a fight. Democrats consistently fight the provision and have even made taxpayer funding for abortion part of their official party platform. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has just promised to make the Hyde Amendment permanent.

Trump just issued a new letter calling for the Hyde Amendment to be made into a permanent law, which would prevent taxpayers from ever having to pay for abortion. “Hillary Clinton’s unwavering commitment to advancing taxpayer-funded abortion on-demand stands in stark contrast to the commitments I’ve made to advance the rights of unborn children and their mothers when elected president,” Trump said in the letter.

Defund Planned Parenthood

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, would be one of the most pro-abortion presidents in American history. Clinton openly supports taxpayer funding for abortion, as well as legalized abortion up until the moment the baby is born.

Pro-life groups have applauded Trump’s latest proposal, including Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Not only has Mr. Trump doubled down on his three existing commitments to the pro-life movement, he has gone a step further in pledging to protect the Hyde Amendment and the conscience rights of millions of pro-life taxpayers,” she said. “For a candidate to make additional commitments during a general election is almost unheard of.”

Trump’s announcement was included as part of the unveiling of his new Pro-Life Coalition, which is being spearheaded by Dannenfelser. Trump’s aim is to show the pro-life movement that he is serious about protecting the lives of preborn children and outlined a number of goals he is committed to achieving as president. In addition to making the Hyde Amendment permanent, Trump says that he will nominate pro-life Supreme Court justices, sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban late-term abortions nationwide and defund Planned Parenthood.
