Pro-Life Group: Impeachment Not About Trump, It's About Abortion
Impeachment is the Democrats' last-ditch effort, as they know they can't beat Trump
A pro-life group has claimed that the Democrats' real target isn't President Donald Trump, but his socially conservative policies and anti-abortion stance.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins wrote in an article on LifeNews.com that the American left is making an extreme move to stop the policy shift by conservatives.
Perkins contends that conservative values like anti-abortion are “the real target” of the Democrats.
“Your values and mine keep advancing in Washington, D.C. as never before with President Trump’s pro-life, pro-family, pro-religious liberty agenda.”
Perkins adds that liberals are outraged at the president’s “steadfast support of life, citing former House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), that Trump is “the most pro-life president in the history of America.”
“Liberals are enraged by President Trump’s tireless efforts to defund Planned Parenthood,” he says.
“The Trump administration’s ‘Protect Life Rule’ stops Title X taxpayer dollars from going to family-planning facilities that perform or refer for abortions.
Rather than comply with the rule, Planned Parenthood backed out of the family planning program altogether.”
Perkins notes that its decision cost Planned Parenthood $16,120,000 in direct Title X grants.
Fewer women than at any time in the last 46 years are choosing to have an abortion, according to a new report on Wednesday from the Guttmacher Institute.— Neon Nettle (@NeonNettle) September 19, 2019

He also asserts that liberal on Congress are carrying on this “political sideshow,” because they cannot stop Trump from doing any more “damage” to their political agenda.
The Democrats seek to roll back “the progress you and I have made over the last three years for faith, family, and freedom,” he adds.
Impeachment is the party's last-ditch effort, as they know they can't beat Trump.
Perkins adds that liberals are also angered over Trump’s vigorous defense of religious liberty as well as his appointment of dozens of “originalist federal judges.”
“These are the real reasons Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and his committee are conducting this phony impeachment process,” Perkins concludes.
