The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel and Vice President of the ADF Center for Life Kevin Theriot
regarding President Trump’s declaration of Jan. 22 to be National Sanctity of Human Life Day
“All innocent human life deserves to be protected, and so does the freedom of those who selflessly empower women—at no charge—to choose life for their children. As the president wrote in his proclamation declaring Jan. 22 to be National Sanctity of Human Life Day, ‘citizens throughout our great country are working for the cause of life and fighting for the unborn, driven by love and supported by both science and philosophy. These compassionate Americans are volunteers who assist women through difficult pregnancies, facilitate adoptions, and offer hope to those considering or recovering from abortions.’ It is the freedom of these very Americans that we are seeking to protect at the U.S. Supreme Court in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra
. In that case, the government is forcing pro-life advocates to provide free advertising for the abortion industry. Americans shouldn’t be forced to communicate a message at odds with their core beliefs. Instead, they should be allowed to celebrate life on this day and every day.”
