As you work through an agenda filled with actions to make America great again, your first priority must be the protection of America’s innocent children. Every day that you work on other priorities, 3,000 prenatal children are brutally killed while living and growing in the home of the brave. Killing defenseless babies in the womb doesn’t sound very brave to us.
America was founded on the declaration that all were created equal and had a right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Abortion is a direct rejection of this idea. In fact, the very purpose of abortion is to deny others of their right to live among us. Mr. President, one thing is clear: we will never make America great again so long as America is abandoning her children to abortion.
Great men and women have one thing in common — they inspire greatness in others. If you want to join these ranks, you cannot let an unjust law stand. President Lincoln moved mountains to convince America that Africans were fully qualified human beings deserving of the protections of the Constitution and you must do the same for the prenatal members of our nation.
What we want, and all we want, is to have with us the men who think slavery wrong. But those who say they hate slavery, and are opposed to it, but yet act with the Democratic party — where are they? Let us apply a few tests. You say that you think slavery is wrong, but you denounce all attempts to restrain it. Is there anything else that you think wrong, that you are not willing to deal with as a wrong? Why are you so careful, so tender of this one wrong and no other? You will not let us do a single thing as if it was wrong; there is no place where you will allow it to be even called wrong! We must not call it wrong in the Free States, because it is not there, and we must not call it wrong in the Slave States because it is there; we must not call it wrong in politics because that is bringing morality into politics, and we must not call it wrong in the pulpit because that is bringing politics into religion.
— President Abraham Lincoln, Speech at New Haven, March 6, 1860
As you reflect on President Lincoln’s words, imagine that he was speaking of abortion. Mr. President, this is your time for greatness. This is your time to restore America’s promise.
Will you truly make America great again?
