Pro-life group gives Trump ‘Courageous Witness for Life’ Award

A prominent pro-life group has bestowed upon President Donald Trump an award for his efforts to advance anti-abortion efforts.

The Hosea Initiative officially awarded President Trump their first Bernard N. Nathanson, MD "Courageous Witness for Life" Award at their gala in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

The award was named after a medical professional who founded the National Abortion Rights Action League in 1969, but later became an outspoken pro-life activist.

Terry Beatley, founder and president of Hosea Initiative, told those gathered at the gala that Trump was receiving the award because he had the “courage” to stand for “the right thing.”

Dr. Ben Carson, secretary of Housing and Urban Development, accepted the award on behalf of the president, explaining that Trump wanted to “convey his great appreciation” for the award and for “the courage that each one of you has manifested.”

“This is obviously something that is very near and dear to my heart, as a physician spending so much time working on little babies,” said Carson, who spoke of his wife once meeting an adult woman who he had performed surgery on while she was still in the womb.

“Now she’s a beautiful, articulate, completely independent young person and that’s why no one will ever convince me that what is in a mother’s womb is a meaningless bunch of cells.”

Although he once identified himself as “very pro-choice” in a 1999, Trump has garnered strong support among the pro-life movement for his defense of the unborn while president.

In January 2018 Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to address the annual March for Life, held in D.C. to protest the 1973 United States Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.

Well deserved! Good for these people for realizing that our president is THE most pro-life president since Reagan. That said, President Trump has done more for the Pro-Life cause than President Reagan did during is 8 years.
It was a different time. Different issues at hand. And, Reagan had to contend with a democrat Congress and his only advantage was his vast popularity which the dems were well aware of. And, respected.
Speaking of respect, the dems way back then still had some respect for the will of the people. President Trump is dealing with a Congress that doesn’t care one bit about the will of the people.

Agree 100%. Abortion is Murder. Murder of the most innocent and helpless.
