Donald Trump Names Pro-Life Advocate Kellyanne Conway as Campaign Manager

Kellyanne Conway 
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign today made major shakeups in an attempt to catch pro-abortion Hillary Clinton, who is leading both national polls as well as surveys of voters in key battleground states. Trump has appointed Kellyanne Conway as Campaign Manager and Steve Bannon as Campaign CEO.

. . . “I have known and trusted Kellyanne Conway my entire professional life,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com today. “No one is better at understanding what real people are thinking and how to connect with them than Kellyanne. She and Steve both understand the importance of effectively communicating the pro-life position and leveraging the passion of the pro-life grassroots in winning elections. No two could be better positioned to help Donald Trump to take on and expose Hillary Clinton’s extremism in this general election.”

Dannenfelser said Donald Trump has pledged, if elected, to advance and sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, to defund Planned Parenthood, and to appoint pro-life Justices to the Supreme Court.

. . . . In an interview with David Brody of CBN, Trump made that promise:

David Brody: “As a President Trump, if a bill came to your desk that would defund Planned Parenthood you would support that, you would sign that?”

Donald Trump: “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion.”

As far as Trump’s comments on Planned Parenthood funding are concerned, Trump has fairly consistently said he opposes taxpayer funding but he’s also made some remarks about the “good things” Planned Parenthood does that have alarmed pro-life voters — as if any “good thing” could make up for the fact that planned Parenthood kills 330,000 unborn babies a year in abortions and then sells their body parts for profit.

Meanwhile, Trump said he thinks the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that ushered in an era of 48 million abortions was “wrongly decided.” Trump said he would appoint “very good judges” who would ultimately “change it” but he opposed Roe without specifically saying it should be overturned. . . .
