Wichita, Kansas – Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, is pleased to announce today his endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States. Operation Rescue is a cutting-edge pro-life organization based in Wichita, Kansas, which works through peaceful, legal means to expose abortion abuses and end abortion.
Newman is a leading pro-life activist, speaker, and author who, during the primary season, actively supported the candidacy of Sen. Ted Cruz. Once Cruz suspended his campaign, Newman took a hard look at Trump, even attending a meeting with Trump and religious leaders in New York City on June 21, 2016.
“After examining Trump’s position on life issues and his assurances that he will appoint conservative, pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, I am convinced that Trump offers our best hope of pushing back the Culture of Death in America,” said Newman. “We know all too well what we will get with Hillary Clinton, and that is more abortion, more tax funding of abortion, and favors for her campaign contributors at Planned Parenthood. A Clinton presidency will result in more dead babies, and this we cannot allow.”
Newman understands the moral conflicts some hesitant pro-life adherents have expressed, but warns against sitting out this election or writing in a name with no chance of winning.
“America stands at a crossroads. A Clinton presidency will fundamentally change our nation to the point that is will be unrecognizable to those of us who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s,” said Newman. “Her rabid support for abortion without restriction will create a political climate that will make it nearly impossible for us to end the shedding of innocent blood through abortion once and for all.
“On the other hand, Trump has promised to stand strongly for life and appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. His Vice-Presidential running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, is a pro-life warrior who has promised to work toward ending abortion. No other GOP ticket in history has made such commitments to the Pro-Life Movement.
“While no political candidate is a perfect person, we must engage the political system as it stands today for the sake of protecting innocent life. We cannot leave the results of this critical election for others to decide. Please join me in casting a vote this November for the pro-life Trump/Pence ticket.”
