Trump touts anti-abortion agenda at gala

Washington, May 23: US President Donald Trump touted his administration’s policies aimed at ending taxpayer support of abortion during a keynote speech at a pro-life gala, the media reported. “When I ran for office, I pledged to stand for life, and as president, that’s exactly what I have done and I have kept my promise and I think everybody here understands that totally,” the President addressed the crowd on Tuesday night at the Susan B. Anthony List 11th Annual Campaign for Life Gala. Trump formally announced a new rule proposed by the White House last week that would bar abortions at facilities receiving federal family planning funds, a move aimed squarely at Planned Parenthood, which accepts some federal money for non-abortion services. Trump was the first sitting president to address the gala, and called on activists to “vote for life” in the upcoming midterm elections. (IANS)
