Pres. Donald Trump Named Operation Rescue’s 2017 Pro-Life Person of the Year

PRESS RELEASE

Washington, DC — Operation Rescue is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2017 Pro-Life Person of the Year Malachi Award is Pres. Donald J. Trump.

The Malachi Award is given by Operation Rescue every year to recognize individuals who sacrificially work to advance the cause of protecting the pre-born.

“Operation Rescue is grateful Pres. Trump for having the courage to keep promises made during the campaign that provide greater protections for the pre-born and deny Federal funds from those who commit abortions,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “He has proven to be the most pro-life president we have had in modern history and has backed up his pro-life rhetoric with action like no other before him.”

Since Trump took office, he has accomplished more for the pro-life agenda than any other president.

• Trump appointed conservative, pro-life Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S, Supreme Court.
• He has effectively denied public money to those who commit and promote abortions around the world.
• The Trump Administration Department of Justice has launched a formal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s illegal baby parts trafficking scheme.
• He has actively supported pro-life legislation, such as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which is currently held up in the U.S. Senate.
• He supports legislation to defund Planned Parenthood in the U.S., and removed an Obama-era mandate that forced states to continue funding Planned Parenthood.
• He has worked to fill his administration with pro-life people and put them in places where they can do the most good.
• Trump’s administration has taken active steps within the Health and Human Services and other agencies to establish pro-life policies that protect the pre-born.
• He has provided protections for those of religious and moral convictions from paying for abortifacient drugs through Obamacare, and continues to work to repeal and replace it.

“We are proud of President Trump and his bold willingness to advance the cause of life. There are more battles ahead, but under the Trump administration, we can now finally see progress within our government toward restoring the sanctity of life and the protections of personhood to the pre-born,” said Newman. “This makes Pres. Trump a deserving recipient of the 2017 Pro-Life Person of the Year Malachi Award.”

    That’s a great honor for our maligned president. God bless you President Trump for recognizing all lives matter even those not yet born. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/09da7d41c0e404b9c11d973d34b27b456877889b48f4a7181a9ebeba743c48a1.jpg Reject abortion as misogyny.

    Thank the Lord President Trump stands for life.

    Trump has signed five separate spending bills and Planned Parenthood is still not defunded.
    And he’s the “#ProLife Person of the Year”?
    How does that work exactly?

    I wish there were more specifics given of what he has actually done, not just these generalizations. I don’t really give him credit for supporting bills that don’t pass either. A lot of the republican candidates would have nominated Gorsuch and would have supported these bills. I am not a big John Kasich fan, but here in Ohio, he just signed a bill that outlaws the abortion of babies with down syndrome.

    well, you are using a different criteria then they defined. yes, compared to mother teresa, he sucks. but compared to previous presidents he is doing good. “He has proven to be the most pro-life president we have had in modern history and has backed up his pro-life rhetoric with action like no other before him.”
