I was reading Steve Kellmeyer's website and he pointed out that the Trump campaign has already taken down the pro-life page from his website. (See below.) Not a good sign, I agree. But I think it's a little early to take potshots at him and presume he's going to betray us. We all know what he's said about defunding Planned Parenthood and now's the time to push for the follow-through.
And keep in mind that Trump's contract with America has many issues that, if accomplished, will strengthen families. His emphasis on local control of education, reducing the size of the tyrannical federal government, eliminating Obamacare and substituting his 7-point healthcare plan, etc.
So shall we give him a chance and help him to man-up his resolve by praying and fasting for him. But don't stop there, read his contract with America. If you agree, sign it. And then write and congratulate him on his election, but let him know you were concerned to see his pro-life statement disappear from the website.
Here's his email contact information. You can call the campaign at 646-736-1779.
Here's the message I sent:
Dear Mr. Trump:
Congratulations! I've been praying for you ever since you became the Republican nominee and I wish you all the best. I'll continue praying in the months leading up to your inauguration.
During the campaign I used my blog to support your efforts and encourage other Catholics to vote for you. I've been very active in the pro-life movement for many years and your defense of the babies waiting to be born has been very important to me. So I was concerned to see that the page with your abortion position seems to have been removed from your website. I hope that was a mistake.
Please assure me that you plan to carry out your resolve to support the defunding of Planned Parenthood and work for laws defending the little ones.
