For many, Wednesday marked the 47-year anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that has allowed for the killing of millions of babies in the womb.

But for President Trump, the day took a decidedly different tone.

Through a proclamation, President Trump called the day National Sanctity of Human Life Day. “Every person—the born and unborn, the poor, the downcast, the disabled, the infirm, and the elderly—has inherent value,” said Trump. “On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our Nation proudly and strongly reaffirms our commitment to protect the precious gift of life at every stage, from conception to natural death.”

Going beyond national borders, Trump also affirmed his desire to protect life globally. “My Administration is also building an international coalition to dispel the concept of abortion as a fundamental human,” he said. “And we will never tire of defending innocent life—at home or abroad.”
