During his famous speech at the March for Life in 2020, former President Donald Trump issued these wonderful words to the large crowd there in Washington DC who wanted nothing more than to end the terrible crime of abortion:
All of us here today understand an eternal truth: Every child is a precious and sacred gift from God. (Applause.) Together, we must protect, cherish, and defend the dignity and sanctity of every human life. (Applause.)
When we see the image of a baby in the womb, we glimpse the majesty of God’s creation. (Applause.) When we hold a newborn in our arms, we know the endless love that each child brings to a family. When we watch a child grow, we see the splendor that radiates from each human soul. One life changes the world…
Together, we are the voice for the voiceless…
That was a great speech by Trump and it foreshadowed the even greater decision that would come, in part, from the Supreme Court justices he had nominated for the high court, the end to Roe v Wade.
But I must ask how we reconcile those comments then with these comments from this weekend:
Trump: “DeSanctus was willing to sign a 5 week ban, a 6 week ban.”
MTP: “Would you support that?”
Trump: “I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake.” pic.twitter.com/OHhl4n3y1j

If “every child is a precious and sacred gift from God” and “we glimpse the majesty of God’s creation” when we see an unborn baby in the womb, then how is it that DeSantis signing the heartbeat bill in Florida which protects these “precious and sacred gifts” – how is it suddenly a “terrible thing and a terrible mistake”? Did Trump not mean what he said in 2020?
He literally said “we must protect, cherish, and defend the dignity and sanctity of every human life.” Governor DeSantis and the legislators in his state did exactly what he professed, and yet now Trump disagrees with it so vehemently that he’s willing to call it a “terrible mistake” on one of the biggest stages in politics?
So much for being the “voice for the voiceless”.
