Frontline America founder, Ben Bergquam, started out his career as a correspondent for Real America’s Voice as a grassroots activist where he participated in the pro-life movement, and he was also a very active supporter of President Donald J. Trump.
Bergquam reminds readers that we are celebrating a massive victory for life, today, as the US Supreme Court has overturned Roe V. Wade.
The 50-year-old ruling, which wrongly called killing pre-born babies a ‘Constutitional Right’, is finally dead- which allows states to outlaw abortion now.
And it is all because of President Donald J. Trump.
Rueters reported that it is all thanks to Trump- as well:
“Seventeen months after leaving office, former President Donald Trump delivered on a campaign promise when the conservative U.S. Supreme Court majority he cemented overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.
The ruling issued on Friday represented a victory long in the making for a well-organized and generously funded conservative movement to push America’s courts rightward.
Trump, during his four years as president, appointed three justices – Neil Gorsuch in 2017, Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, and Amy Coney Barrett in 2020 – giving a court that was ideologically deadlocked with four liberals and four conservatives when he took office a solid 6-3 conservative majority by the time he left.
All three were in the majority in the decision to overturn Roe.
Here are some highlights to Bergquam’s pro-life and pro-Trump appearances:
“This is how we got here,” Bergquam reported.
The left-y Guardian also foresaw how important Trump is to the Pro-life movement and reported recently- while people were waiting for the ruling:
Trump, the businessman and reality TV star is the unlikeliest of heroes for social conservatives and Christian evangelicals because he delivered the ultimate prize: the end of America’s constitutional right to abortion.
The leak this week of a draft supreme court opinion showing that the court’s conservative majority is poised to overturn Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 decision legalizing abortion, represented a vivid aftershock of the Trump presidency.
He had reversed his position on the issue by the time he reached the White House and, with uncharacteristic discipline, spent his four years in office bending the federal judiciary to the right, including with three supreme court appointments.
“The supreme court will be his most important and long-lasting political legacy,” said Amanda Hollis-Brusky, an associate professor of politics at Pomona College in Claremont, California.
“If the number of supreme court justices stays at nine, Trump will have appointed a third of the supreme court having been a one-term president who lost the popular vote by 3 million. And yet those justices will have a greater and a longer-lasting impact than anything else he did as president.”
The threat he posed to reproductive rights was always hiding in plain sight. As a Republican candidate running for president in 2016, Trump released a list of 11 potential supreme court nominees after heeding advice from conservative groups such as the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation.
The unusual move was seen as a way of reassuring conservatives troubled by his boorish behaviour and past views on issues such as abortion. Then, during the last presidential debate with his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, Trump was asked if he wanted to see the supreme court overturn Roe v Wade.
He replied: “Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that’s really what’s going to be – that will happen. And that’ll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court. I will say this: it will go back to the states, and the states will then make a determination.”
This is how the right sees it:
Right- Trump is so ‘boorish’… he just saved humanity.
Thank you, President Trump! God bless all the little babies!
