Life

President Trump is the first sitting president to address the March for Life live via satellite.

Vice President Mike Pence addressed the March for Life in 2017, becoming the first sitting vice president to do so in person.

Trump’s HHS revised its conscience regulations to protect President Trump’s promise to enforce federal conscience and religious freedom protections. The proposed conscience provisions include:

  • Restricting taxpayer funds, including Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare, from being used by entities with discriminatory policies or practices,
  • Protecting Americans who have religious or moral convictions related to certain health care services,
  • Recognizing that Americans should not be discriminated against for their religious or moral beliefs when participating in certain health services.

Just after taking office, President Trump reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which protects $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to fund the global abortion industry.

President Trump cut off taxpayer funding for the U.N. Population Fund, which colludes with China’s cruel program of forced abortion and sterilization.

President Trump signed H.J. Res. 43 into law, overturning a midnight regulation by the Obama administration, which prohibited states from defunding certain abortion facilities in their federally funded family planning programs.

President Trump has expressed strong support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when science tells us that an unborn child can experience pain.

President Trump’s administration issued guidance to enforce the requirement that taxpayer dollars not support abortion coverage in Obamacare exchange plans.

President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services just announced the formation of a new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, tasked with ensuring that laws that protect religious freedom and conscience rights are appropriately enforced.

 

Religious Liberty

On the annual National Day of Prayer in 2017, President Trump signed an executive order on religious liberty.

Loosened the IRS restrictions against political activities by tax-exempt religious organizations, effectively weakening the Johnson Amendment, and it attempted to make it easier for employers not to provide contraceptives if they had religious objections.

Gave Attorney General Jeff Sessions greater authority regarding religious liberty policy.

EO helped faith-based groups give healthcare coverage to 13.7 million Americans.

EO enabled at least 44 schools that provide an education for over 148,000 students to continue operating

The Department of Health and Human Services rolled back the Obamacare contraceptive mandate, which required employers to provide birth control and sterilization procedures to employees even if the employers disagreed with the services for religious and moral reasons.

The Department of Justice issued several memos directing how federal agencies should interpret religious freedom, directing the DOJ to vet proposed regulations for any potential impact on religious freedom and ordering the IRS not to enforce the Johnson Amendment.

The Department of Agriculture issued a guidance protecting religious liberty and ensuring that Christians who opposed homosexual "marriage" would not be discriminated against for their beliefs.

The Trump administration took numerous actions related to homosexual, transgender, and other sex-related matters.

While a symbolic move, the newly sworn-in Trump administration quickly removed the Obama administration's web pages on LGBTQ issues, among some other left-wing causes.

President Trump rescinded former President Obama's pro-transgender guidelines for schools receiving federal aid that are subject to Title IX.

A day earlier, the Trump administration announced it would discontinue Obama's pro-transgender policies and earlier that month the DOJ refused to defend the policy or appeal a court-ordered injunction on the policy.

The Justice Department dropped its discrimination lawsuit against North Carolina for its "bathroom bill" (filed under the Obama administration) after North Carolina passed a compromise bill. Homosexual activists still opposed the new bill.

The Trump administration began to undo Section 1557 of Obamacare, which would have helped liberals gain transsexual "rights" through the courts.

President Trump did not proclaim June 2017 as LGBT Pride Month, unlike former presidents Clinton and Obama.

On July 26, 2017, President Trump announced he would reverse Obama's policy and disallow transgender people from serving in the military. President Trump formally signed an order banning transgenders from joining the military on August 25, 2017.

President Trump signed a final order on March 23, 2018, that banned transgender individuals from military service but with certain exceptions.

October 4, 2017—The Department of Justice issued a memo reversing an Obama-era policy that had the DOJ interpret the scope of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to extend to "gender identity."
