    Surge Summary: Donald Trump’s pro-life record as President is noteworthy – as against Roman Catholic Joe Biden’s pro-abortion record and the extremism promised should he prevail in this contested election. Biden is so bad on the baby-killing issue that American RC bishops are forming a task-force to confront the “President Elect” on his challenge to the “fundamental values” of the faith he claims as his own.

     When Donald Trump announced his campaign for president, many in the pro-life community were skeptical about his commitment to the sanctity of life.  It didn’t take long for Trump to dispel those concerns.

    There’s an old saying in Washington, “Personnel is policy.”  And Donald Trump’s first major appointment was to select pro-life stalwart Mike Pence as his running mate.  Together, the Trump/Pence team has been the most pro-life administration in history.

    Here’s a brief look at the Trump record:

    • President Trump reinstated Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City policy barring taxpayer funding of overseas abortions.
    • He cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
    • He appointed three pro-life justices to the Supreme Court and appointed more than 200 constitutionalist judges to lower federal courts.
    • He routinely used the bully pulpit to promote pro-life policies and repeatedly urged Congress to ban late-term abortions.
    • And in January, President Trump became the first sitting president to address the annual March for Life in person.

    This is a record every pro-life American can celebrate.

    We don’t yet know how the election will be resolved, but if things continue on their current course, we could well be facing four years of tremendous push back and pro-abortion advocacy.  Ironically, it’s coming from some who claim to be committed Christians.

    Joe Biden frequently touts his Catholic faith and could be the first Catholic president in 60 years.  While abortion wasn’t much of an issue for John F. Kennedy, he condemned Japan’s attempt to control its population through abortion as “repugnant to all Americans.”

    In stark contrast to JFK, Joe Biden went to China and defended the communist regime’s forced abortion policy, saying it was “understandable” and he wasn’t “second-guessing” it.

    Not surprisingly, Biden supports forcing taxpayers to subsidize abortions and was endorsed by Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.

    Alarmed by Biden’s embrace of abortion on demand, America’s Catholic bishops announced this week that they are forming a task force to address the expected challenges a Biden Administration may present to the “fundamental values” Catholics hold dear.

    The bishops are also concerned about Biden’s promise to reinstate Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, other threats to religious liberty and the independence of Catholic schools.

    Catholics aren’t the only ones grappling with the issue.  Some evangelicals embraced Joe Biden and even attempted to make a “pro-life case” for his election.

    We also have the spectacle of Raphael Warnock in Georgia, promoting abortion as “reproductive justice” from the pulpit of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church.  Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., would be horrified.

    If Warnock succeeds in becoming one of Georgia’s next senators, he will play a critical role in helping Joe Biden implement his pro-abortion agenda.
