President Trump declared January 22, 2018, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day, stating:
"Reverence for every human life, one of the values for which our Founding Fathers fought, defines the character of our Nation. Today, it moves us to promote the health of pregnant mothers and their unborn children ...
Medical advances give us an even greater appreciation for the humanity of the unborn. Today, citizens throughout our great country are working for the cause of life and fighting for the unborn, driven by love and supported by both science and philosophy.
These compassionate Americans are volunteers who assist women through difficult pregnancies, facilitate adoptions, and offer hope to those considering or recovering from abortions.
They are medical providers who, often at the risk of their livelihood, conscientiously refuse to participate in abortions ... Thankfully, the number of abortions, which has been in steady decline since 1980, is now at a historic low."
