Washington, D.C. – Today, President Donald J. Trump released a Presidential Proclamation declaring January 22, 2021, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. That date marks the 48th memorial of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion in America.
“Every human life is a gift to the world. Whether born or unborn, young or old, healthy or sick, every person is made in the holy image of God. The Almighty Creator gives unique talents, beautiful dreams, and a great purpose to every person. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we celebrate the wonder of human existence and renew our resolve to build a culture of life where every person of every age is protected, valued, and cherished,” the Proclamation began.
President Trump further stated his pro-life accomplishments, which included re-establishing and strengthening the Mexico City Policy that prevents international funding of organizations that conduct or promote abortions. Another accomplishment was the enactment of the Protect Life Rule that denies millions of dollars in Title X federal family planning grants to organizations like Planned Parenthood, which conduct or refer for abortions.
“We are grateful for all President Trump has done to establish ‘a culture of respect for the sacredness of life’ during his first term in office, which is more than any previous president has done for the cause of life,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “This is why we named President Trump the recipient of our prestigious Pro-Life Person of the Year Malachi Award. He deserves our recognition for his efforts to protect life despite enormous push-back from the Abortion Cartel and those who cowardly attempted to maintain the status quo.”
