The Planned Parenthood abortion business is highlighting a letter from President Donald Trump to constituents and slamming his pro-life responses. But the majority of Americans, who are pro-life on abortion, will be encouraged.

The president expresses his firm belief in the right to life of unborn babies.

“Thank you for taking the time to express your views regarding abortion,” the letter from President Trump reads. “The right to life is fundamental and universal. As your President, I am dedicated to protecting the lives of every American, including the unborn.”

Trump then launches into a defense of defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

“As I have made clear, organizations like Planned Parenthood should not receive Federal funding if they perform abortions. For that reason, I was proud to sign into law a bill that allows States to prioritize how they spend their Federal family planning grant money, including the choice to withhold taxpayer funding from organizations that insist on performing abortions,” he said.

Trump also defended signing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood on an international level.

“I am also dedicated to ensuring that America does not fund abortions abroad. That is why one of the first actions I took as President was to reinstate and modernize the Mexico City policy, which ensures that American taxpayer dollars are not used to fund organizations that perform abortions in foreign countries,” he said.

Although he opposes abortion, like all pro-life Americans President Trump is a staunch supporter of women’s health.

“At the same time, I am deeply committed to investing in women’s health and support Federal funding for programs that provide world-class services for women, such as cardiovascular care, breast and cervical cancer screenings, family planning and gynecological care, and obstetrics and prenatal care. I will continue to advocate for policies that promote better healthcare for women,” he says.

The letter concludes: “Thank you again for your suggestions. As President, I am committed to protecting the right to life and supporting women’s health services. Please visit www.WhiteHouse.gov to read more on how I am delivering on these issues for the American people.”
