STARNES: Trump is Most Pro-Life President in American History
Donald Trump is the most pro-life president the United States has had, national radio host Todd Starnes said after the Supreme Court heard a case the could overturn Roe v. Wade.
Legal analysts indicated the case is looking good for the Mississippi abortion law to stand and for Roe to possibly be overturned or curbed in some form, thanks in large part to Trump’s appointments: Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
“Donald Trump went out there and he campaigned, he said, ‘I’m going to be the most pro-life president in history,’ but you know what? he delivered on that promise,” Starnes said Wednesday.
“I really do believe that Donald Trump is in fact, the most pro-life president in American history,” Starnes explained.
Liz Harrington, Trump’s spokesperson, agreed.
“The pro-life legacy of President Trump is really unmatched, and I think it is one of his greatest legacies and he’s very proud of,” Harrington said.
LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW WITH LIZ HARRINTON ON THE TODDCAST PODCAST BELOW:
Below is a rushed transcript of Liz Harrington on the Todd Starnes Radio Show:
Starnes: [01:18:15] You know, we would not be at this point had it not been for President Trump and his picks to the federal bench. And honestly, folks, I think that is going to be the president’s greatest legacy that. And he proved himself to be the most pro-life president in American history. I want to go to the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker Line in the Liberty University Studios, always honored to have with us from Team Trump, our good friend Liz Harrington. Liz Hope, you’re doing good today. [01:18:39][24.1]
Harrington: [01:18:40] Hey, Todd, hope you had a great Thanksgiving. [01:18:42][1.8]
Starnes: [01:18:43] You know it was A. And Liz, I got to tell you feeling pretty good after what we heard today on the Supreme Court and thanks in very large part to President Trump’s picks for the bench. [01:18:54][11.0]
Harrington: [01:18:56] Well, that’s right, Todd, in the clip you just played. Very powerful. You know, this is a fundamental question. And President Trump, as you mentioned, was the strongest pro-life president we’ve ever had. And all those picks he put on throughout the judiciary, the all these questions come down to these fundamental issues. I mean, does the constitution guarantee the right to life or not? And you know, we’ll see what happens. I think there were some interesting questions, not just from Justice Thomas, but also we heard some questions interesting from Justice Kavanaugh as well. This idea that, you know, the court’s gotten a lot of things wrong throughout our history. And looking at this question of Roe v. Wade, I mean, it’ll be interesting to see what they see. But some of those probing questions from the justices seemed to indicate that they shouldn’t be bound by something that’s been on the books for, you know, so many years that because we’ve known from our past, we’ve gotten it wrong for many years in the past when it comes to other big court decisions. [01:20:05][68.9]
Starnes: [01:20:05] Well, it’s a great point to raise. And so when you see the president just tell him that we are just so proud of him and honestly thank him because if in fact, the Supreme Court comes down in favor of of this, this Mississippi law, he will go down in history as as the president who led the way to protect all these unborn babies. And I think that’s going to be a great legacy for this president. [01:20:29][23.4]
Harrington: [01:20:31] Well, that’s right. And you know, again, we’ll see what happens. It wasn’t like a litmus test for anything, really. But it was always coming down to what’s the constitution? That’s the litmus test. Exactly. And it’s so important. And you know, this has been, I think, a stain on our country and the millions, tens of millions of unborn children that, you know, I love this idea of viability and who’s viable at, you know, one day or at two months old. I mean, without the help of a loving parent, none of us are. I mean, it’s either a life or not. And these are very fundamental questions, as I said. We’ll see what the court does. But you’re right. I mean, the pro-life legacy of President Trump is really unmatched, and I think it is one of his greatest legacies and he’s very proud of. [01:21:23][52.8]
Starnes: [01:21:24] Liz. This information just coming out about 20 minutes ago. Fox News confirming that we have now identified the first case of the Omicron variant here in the United States over in San Francisco. And they’re telling us that the this person was fully vaccinated and came down with it. Mild symptoms, no big deal. But this news coming as Biden is expected to announce the strictest lockdown measures yet. Your reaction to that? [01:21:57][33.7]
Harrington: [01:21:57] Here we go again. Right? I mean, this is never ending, and I think the vast story of the American people are wise to it at this point. I mean, I just heard this news report on the radio at the top of the hour and they say, Well, we we don’t know how contagious or how dangerous it is, but everybody panicked. I mean, that was that was the Fox News broadcast. And it’s like, Well, wait, why should we panic? I mean, we should get the facts here. And what I’m afraid of, what the media has been doing this entire time is they stoke this year, they stoke division. Oh, they everything they do to our country really is not to benefit us. I mean, as President Trump says, I think so correctly identified the corporate mainstream media as the enemy of the people. But I mean, let’s just have the facts. I mean, but they’re so keen to restrict our liberty to force, mandate, to control every aspect of our lives and use a pandemic from communist China against the freedoms of the American people. And it’s wrong, and I think the American people are sick of it. They don’t want these restrictions anymore. They’re tired of it. They want to get back to their lives. They’re smart. They can make their own personal health decisions. And from everything I hear from the media and the Democrats that they don’t seem to care about you making your personal health decision. They just want you to live in fear. Stay inside. Does they want to take this economy? They want to open our border and they want to see our country suffer? [01:23:36][98.2]
Starnes: [01:23:37] Liz Harrington on the Patriot mobile newsmaker line. Liz, some good news, though. Last night you had the federal judge in Louisiana. Dougherty, I believe, is his name appointed again appointed to the bench by President Trump putting a hold on these mandatory vaccine mandates for four health care workers. So I think once this thing gets into the courts, you know, the courts are ruling the right way, the constitutional way. And that’s a good thing. [01:24:04][27.5]
Harrington: [01:24:06] No, it is. And if only we would have had that, you know, after last November 3rd Circuit ruling on the side of the Constitution, however, it’s important that courts do continue to take up these cases and look at what the law is on her side. Anything new? They knew this was unconstitutional. That’s why the Biden regime put out this, you know, edict by press conference. And they didn’t have it have any rule through OSHA for months because they knew they wanted to just delay and nudge and prod companies to do their dirty work for them. And they knew it wouldn’t pass muster constitutional muster in court. And now we’re seeing that it doesn’t. And this is happening to every single one of these mandates. It’s just wrong. And that’s as President Trump says. You know, people have to have their freedom to choose. They have to be able to decide what goes into their own bodies for medical treatment. And as you just mentioned this new case, you know, this is a double vaccinated person so people can take that information and decide for themselves. And what about the tens of millions of cases, cases, cases we saw trying to undermine President Trump’s presidency? They don’t ever take into account their natural immunity. It’s absolutely unscientific. And again, it’s unconstitutional. And that’s why it’s so important that we did put a lot of strong judges on the bench when the record numbers under President Trump for instances like this, Mike. [01:25:37][91.9]
Starnes: [01:25:38] Well, Liz, look, we’re going to have to leave it there. Real quick, though, that McLaughlan poll coming out a lot of information. I’m really impressed with the president’s numbers among Latino voters going up to what now 38 percent say they support the president. That’s a that’s a good place for for him to be with that demographic. [01:25:58][20.0]
Harrington: [01:26:00] Oh, it’s incredible. In fact, we saw it last November in these border towns, the swings were enormous away from the Democrats toward President Trump. It was because he led on this issue. He built the wall that was all but finished it. All Biden had to do was go to the beach and not touch it. Unfortunately, now the equipment’s just rotting in our sovereignty, just laying in the desert. But this is a winning issue in the media. Always got that wrong. President Trump’s strong stance on legal immigration and against illegal immigration is a huge winning issue for Hispanics and, of course, the economy, which brought the best economy in history in 2019. So these policies, America First policies are attractive to all types of voters, especially Hispanic voters. [01:26:49][49.1]
Starnes: [01:26:49] All right, Liz, going to leave it there? Always good hearing from you. [01:26:52][3.1]
Harrington: [01:26:54] Thanks so much, Todd. All right, [01:26:54][1.0]
Starnes: [01:26:55] Liz Harrington, folks from Team Trump and a lot, a lot to unravel. A lot going on with this new polling data coming out. And it just folks it is. If the Republicans do the right thing on Friday and they draw a line in the sand and they hold their ground, they will win massive numbers, win massive numbers in the midterms if they don’t. Who knows? But we’ve got to make sure that the Republicans draw the line in the sand and do not waver. [01:27:28][33.1]
