First Lady of the Pro-Life Movement 
Said Trump Shared Her Values
By Maria Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director
 

            She could have been easily described as the First Lady of the Pro-Life Movement. Lawyer Phyllis Schlafly led a spirited campaign to successfully torpedo the pro-abortion Equal Rights Amendment, which would have hurt women terribly. She also helped ensure that the GOP platform retained its pro-life planks.
            When she died recently, Schlafly left behind a lasting legacy of empowering women and saving precious preborn babies. She also left us with a parting book: The Conservative Case for Trump, a book she co-authored with Ed Martin and Brett Decker, which was released the day after her death.
            Schlafly's book is especially welcome this campaign year-a year in which many are falsely characterizing the positions of Donald Trump as they relate to the life issues. In her important work, Schlafly effectively laid out the case that the Republican standard-bearer will be a dependable voice for life.
            In a chapter entitled, "Restraining Judicial Activism," Schlafly began with this pithy quote from Trump: "I'm not appointing a liberal judge." She noted that Trump has said his model for U.S. Supreme Court Justices is the late Antonin Scalia: "He was a justice who did not believe in legislating from the bench, and he is a person whom I held in the highest regard and will always greatly respect his intelligence and conviction to uphold the Constitution of our country."
            Schlafly noted that in May of 2016, Trump "took the unprecedented step" of circulating the names of potential Supreme Court picks. She wrote, "Trump's pool of potential nominees to the Supreme Court received almost unanimous praise from intelligent conservatives." 
            In 2011, Trump said, "We should not be one of seven countries that allows elective abortions after twenty weeks. It goes against our core values."
            As Schlafly pointed out, "We need Supreme Court justices who will defend the Constitution and stand opposed, on firm judicial principle to the Left's relentless attempts to legislate, and perpetuate a social (and socialist) revolution, from the bench."
            Schlafly also stated, "A vote for Donald Trump is a vote against judicial tyranny. And that's something every conservative should support."
