President Donald Trump launched his 2020 re-election campaign Tuesday night as he emphasized the sharp divide between Republicans and Democrats on the issue of protecting the unborn.

“Virtually every top Democrat also now supports taxpayer-funded abortion right up to the moment of birth, ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb,” Trump said in Orlando, Florida. “Leading Democrats have even opposed measures to prevent the execution of children after birth – you saw that in Virginia.”

“Republicans believe that every life is a sacred gift from God,” the president continued. “That is why I have asked Congress to prohibit extreme late-term abortion.”

During his address announcing his re-election campaign, Trump also noted the Democrat Party has become “more radical, more dangerous, more unhinged than at any point in the modern history of our country.”

National pro-life leader Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement that Trump “has gone further to serve unborn children and their mothers than any president before him.”

Dannenfelser, who served as chair of Trump’s pro-life coalition after securing four pro-life commitments from him during his 2016 campaign, said the president’s “bold leadership has truly saved countless lives.”

She explained:

From stopping taxpayer funding of abortion and of experimentation involving aborted baby body parts, to protecting conscience rights, to calling out extremist Democrats who support abortion on demand through birth and even infanticide, to his two outstanding Supreme Court justices and transformation of the federal courts, President Trump has beyond delivered on his promises to the pro-life voters who propelled him to victory in 2016.

Dannenfelser added that, with Democrat hopefuls politically allied with the abortion lobby, much is at stake in the 2020 presidential election. Her organization will spend $41 million in priority states to advance “the most ambitious pro-life legislative agenda” that ultimately hopes to see Roe v. Wade overturned.

“Our team will be working hard through Election Day to educate millions of voters, expose the extremism of Trump’s opponents, elect pro-life leaders to Congress and in the states, and win a second term for the most pro-life president in history,” she said.
