Pro-Life Advocates Celebrate a Triumph for the Unborn

With this victory comes a renewed hope for overturning Roe v. Wade

In the wake of a stunning victory for President-Elect Donald Trump, pro-life advocates across the country are celebrating a hopeful political future.

During the divisive 2016 election cycle, there was the ever-present undercurrent of the open seat on the Supreme Court — and the knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s radical stance on abortion.

“Planned Parenthood has been defeated at the ballot box.”

On Wednesday morning, Nov. 9, with Donald Trump’s victory as well as a GOP-controlled House and Senate, pro-life advocates see a very clear path forward when it comes to respecting the life of the most helpless among us.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of The Susan B. Anthony List, which represents pro-life women in politics, wrote in a statement: “This is an historic moment for the pro-life movement. There are four critical pro-life goals now within our reach: end painful late-term abortions, codify the Hyde Amendment, defund Planned Parenthood, and appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices.”

Lila Rose, president and founder of pro-life organization Live Action, also talked about the great victory for the unborn. “Planned Parenthood has been defeated at the ballot box. Despite the millions Planned Parenthood and its allies spent to elect a pro-abortion president and Congress, voters roundly rejected the abortion agenda of Hillary Clinton and the abortion industry that backed her campaign. When the abortion lobby pushed for unregulated abortions through all nine months of pregnancy and wanted to force taxpayers to pay for them, the American people pushed back.”

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

Rose continued, “Because of the pro-life pledges Donald Trump made during the campaign, there is now a clear path to end the public funding that enables the dismemberment, poisoning, or starving to death of 1 million innocent children each year.”

David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress wrote of the hope for the future, especially in light of the investigative Planned Parenthood videos that exposed the brutal reality of the abortion industry.

“In the past year, CMP’s videos exposed Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry’s barbaric, taxpayer-sponsored criminal scheme to harvest and sell tiny baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains for profit,” Daleiden’s statement read. “Yesterday, the American people voted for change agents to respect and protect even the smallest and most forgotten among us, including our unborn brothers and sisters. We can all now unite around commonsense, consensus pro-life policies and leave behind the failed pro-abortion extremism of the past.”

Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, also celebrated this pro-life victory in a statement:

“We are delighted that [Tuesday’s] election results reflect America’s pro-life consensus in the House, Senate, and presidency. We applaud candidates that took a stand on the most critical human rights issue of today, abortion. We congratulate President-Elect Trump on his hard-fought win, as well Vice President-Elect Pence, and our friends in Congress. We look forward to working together to fulfill President-Elect Trump’s campaign promises to ensure pro-life Supreme Court justices, pro-life policies, and defunding America’s primary abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Acknowledging the divisiveness in our country, we also commit to working for the day when all Americans know that abortion is unthinkable, and to building a lasting culture of life.”

The Trump victory has shown that the voice of the people matters. And on the issue of abortion, the tide is turning and the future looks brighter for the unborn.
