Donald Trump is a great businessman, a media genius and a fearless political tactician. He is the rare voice that won’t back down and bow to the media elite. So when Trump announced in 2011 that after some serious reflection he had reconsidered his position on abortion and was now prolife, it was great news for those fighting to protect the sanctity of the unborn.
Trump explained his conversion to CBN News’ David Brody as follows:
One thing about me, I’m a very honorable guy. I’m pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago. One of the reasons I changed — one of the primary reasons — a friend of mine’s wife was pregnant, in this case married. She was pregnant and he didn’t really want the baby. And he was telling me the story. He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye. It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him. And you know here’s a baby that wasn’t going to be let into life. And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life.
It is now three years after Trump announced his conversion and the question needs to be asked: Where has the Donald been as we wage this battle to protect unborn human life. After all, Trump has tremendous resources at his fingertips. He is an almost constant guest on talk shows, he has over two and a half million twitter followers and his opinions on almost anything frequently make front page news. As someone who believes in the sanctity of human life, why has Trump not used his powerful public platform to help win hearts and minds to the prolife cause? He could an have an immediate and powerful impact.
Well, now may be Trump's pro-life moment. There is a perfect opportunity for Trump become involved in a very big way in defending human life. Last week, filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney announced the biggest ever crowd funding campaign to make a TV movie about the serial killer, abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell. After being rejected by the bigots at Kickstarter, the filmmakers took their effort to raise $2.1 million to Indiegogo . As of yesterday, nearly 7,500 contributors who have pledged over $545,000 to make a TV movie about abortionist Kermit Gosnell - America's biggest serial killer. Imagine the boost this project would get if fellow pro-lifer Donald Trump jumped in with 25,000 other pro-lifers in support of Gosnell the Movie.
The media does not want to tell the truth about the horrors of abortion. But with Trump’s help, the censorship of the Gosnell story ends now.
