Other presidents have offered their support to the pro-life cause, but only President Donald Trump has decided to participate in the March for Life.
His pro-life record, coupled with his record in defense of religious liberty, makes him the most important Christian voice in the United States. No president, including President Ronald Reagan, can match his stellar achievements on these twin issues.
By contrast, we have the likes of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, both of whom have endorsed infanticide: there are no penalties for doctors who intentionally allow an innocent baby to die if he or she survives a botched abortion. However, First Prize goes to California Governor Gavin Newsom: he out-Hitlerized both men.
Earlier this month, Newsom said he wants to stop euthanizing animals. "We want to be a no-kill state." Yet last year he issued a California Proclamation on Reproductive Freedom, one part of which was designed to welcome "women to California to fully exercise their reproductive rights."
In other words, his enthusiasm for killing the least among us is so passionate that he extended an open invitation to pregnant women across the United States to have their babies killed in his home state.
It will surprise no one to learn that Newsom is also a proponent of assisted suicide. Indeed, he likes it so much that he boasts of his role in assisting a person to commit suicide in 2002. That person was his mother. [At that time assisted suicide was a felony in California—he put her down in San Francisco.]
It's too bad Mr. "No-Kill State" Newsom didn't think of his mother the way he thinks of hamsters.
These are sick times. Kudos to President Trump for standing up for the most defenseless human beings. He looks positively angelic next to these monsters.
