Time for the Trump Administration to Formally Rescind NSSM 200

Revoke NSSM 200 and Apologize for the Evil Done Last week I wrote about the admirable work that the Trump administration is doing to promote the pro-life cause at the international level.

“The Most Pro-Life President in History?”  When Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination in 2015, there were few pro-life leaders who were excited about the thought of a President Donald Trump. Most knew Trump as a life-long “pro-choice” New York liberal, a flamboyant and sometimes-cutthroat [...]
